Description

For a novel approach to help your canine pal manage his weight for a healthier lifestyle, nourish him with Dr. Tim's Weight Management Metabolite Formula Grain-Free Dry Dog Food. Formulated through the combined efforts of a Ph.D. canine nutritionist and a veterinarian experienced in competitive dog sports and companion animal medicine, this food has elevated levels of protein, a complementary fiber structure and moderate fat content that work in tandem with your pet’s natural metabolism to support weight loss. Metabolite acts as a lock and key, opening one metabolic route after another to ensure your dog is optimizing his natural ability to burn calories and ensure you won’t give up due to excessive begging. It incorporates all angles of the weight loss process, from the molecular structure of the ingredients to the psychology of the pet owner, to build and maintain your dog’s healthy weight while understanding the behavioral difficulties of an overweight dog who’s always hungry.

Foods Made to Match Your Pet

When shopping for Dr. Tim's pet foods, you'll notice the labeling indicates an activity level. That's because they're made to complement your pet's lifestyle, with ideal ratios of protein, fat, carbohydrates and fibers to help her thrive. You'll find recipes that are specially formulated for active pets, low-key pets, extreme athletes and those in need of weight management.

Active

ACTIVE: This food is designed for the sporting dog that's active more days than not—dogs who hunt or jog every day, herding dogs, police dogs and the like. It's made for maximum digestion, an important consideration for these dogs that's often overlooked. Protein types and levels, fat types and levels, and fiber sources are formulated to maximize performance and recovery.

Casual Lifestyle

CASUAL LIFESTYLE: This is a diet intended for the dog who lives a normal lifestyle—sleeping on the couch, running around the backyard or going on car rides, walks or hikes and basically just living the good life. The only regular exercise she might get is tail wagging when she sees you at the end of the day, or some loving nose nudges.

Extreme Athletes

EXTREME ATHLETES: This food is for dogs who are serious about working nearly every day for long periods of time, such as sled dogs and dogs who hunt most days of the season. It's extremely high in fat, high in protein and low in carbs, with the highest levels of essential omega-3 fatty acids and loads of antioxidants. Performance, endurance and recovery are all enhanced.

Weight Management

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT: This diet is intended for the dog who has put on some extra weight. High protein allows your overweight dog to be more active, and moderate fat allows her to feel satiated so she doesn't beg—an essential part of the equation. The omega-3 and antioxidant profiles help reduce the inflammatory stress that's prevalent in an overweight dog, too.

Treats That Deliver

Treats That Deliver

Dr. Tim's freeze-dried treats are formulated for both cats and dogs—perfect for multipet households. They're made from 100% real, USDA-inspected meats from Wisconsin. And since they're freeze-dried, you can give your pet all the nutrition and flavor of raw meat without any of the mess or inconvenience.

Top It Off With Nutrition

Dr. Tim's Flavor Booster is made of 100% real, USDA-inspected beef liver powder from Wisconsin that is freeze-dried to maintain more nutrients. It's perfect for use as a food topper to encourage pets to eat and enjoy their meals, which makes it a great choice for finicky dogs or those who are ill or tired of the same formula.

About Dr. Tim's

As a veterinarian and accomplished musher, Dr. Tim Hunt understood his dogs' need for a food that promotes stamina, endurance and performance through proper digestion. Armed with a cement mixer, a cache of ideas, and an aversion for other diets on the market, Dr. Tim took to his Michigan garage on a mission to formulate a food that replicated a natural, wild diet for his Alaskan Huskies. Today, Dr. Tim's focus has since expanded to bring an honest, nutritionally sound food—sourced only from North America's highest quality ingredients—to every dog.

    One happy dog mom!!

    By on

    I have a Sheltie that, like his mama, has a hard time letting go of extra pounds. He has hypothyroidism, so that really makes weight mgmt/loss a herculean effort. Rx diet food didn't work, diet/lowcal/lite dog food at pet stores didn't work. I cut his food back to the point I felt like I was starving him-he kept going back to his bowl. I'm not a huge fan of treats, so if I give him one, it's pretty small. He has arthritis in both front legs, so any walks we go on are very very short. After all that, my vet said he was at his heaviest at 31.5#!!!! We both feel that he should be 20#. SO, after a lot of research, Dr TIm's Metabolite Weight Management (I chose GF over the regular) food constantly I have a Sheltie that, like his mama, has a hard time letting go of extra pounds.

SO, after a lot of research, Dr TIm's Metabolite Weight Management (I chose GF over the regular) food constantly came up the winner in a lot of "best food for..." lists. I was still hesitant to go with this simply because I had to order it. First of February this year and I decide to just go for it. We are on his 3rd (12#) bag and we just got home from the vet for his annual exam and my vet said he was at 27#!!!!! That's a 10% weight loss!! And I haven't done anything different with him as before. He isn't going back to his bowl to see if more food is in there, so it seems it keeps him feeling full. He's never been a picky eater, so I can't comment on how palatable his finds the food. So, yeah...I'm a happy dog mom. He's 12, hypothyroid, arthritis in both front legs...he's an old doggo. He's more active now: less weight-less pressure on his legs-he's more willing to play with my highly active 2 yr old dog (for a little bit, though-he's still 12 ). … more

    Dr.Tim's Metabolite dog food

    By on

    The ingredients and the fact that it was slow cooked was a big factor in my trying this dog food. Weight management is what I am hoping for. It is still to early to tell if it will help my 2 dogs loose a few more pounds and maintain it. They love the taste. I will continue to recommend chewy to my friends and family.

    MY DOG LOVES THIS FOOD

    By on

    Granted, my 84 lb. pointer/hound rescue is NOT a picky eater. But this is by far her favorite food. We started giving her Dr. Tim's Weight Management grain-free food about 2 weeks ago and I can almost tell she has a waistline:) We're hoping she'll drop 10 lbs in about 6 months.

    Pup lost the weight!

    By on

    We started my 7 year old gsd Great Pyrenees cross on this food after we learned she is about 10 lbs overweight at the vet. I was shocked when I saw the scale and actually suggested their scale may be broken haha. We are very active as it is, so nothing changed with our activity level, just switching from wellness core large breed to dr tims weight management grain free. It took about six months, but she lost the weight! In addition to the weight loss, her coat looks healthier and her stools are more firm and regular. We will keep her on this food as it seems she benefits from being on this.

    My Great Dane

    By on

    My wife and I rescued a purebred Great Dane about 3.5 years old. We took him to the vet and he was grossly underweight. So my wife and I fattened him up quickly and the next time at the Vet he was told to loose 10 lbs. I had heard of Dr. Tim's so we tried it and has done great

    Only thing that worked for Milo!

    By on

    My 14 year old black and tan chihuahua Milo gets 1/4 cup food twice a day, along with a couple small vegetable "treats" like cucumbers and snap peas throughout the day. We did everything we could to get him to drop a pound- we couldn't really feed him less, so we tried different name-brand senior formulas and lower fat formulas. Lower protein formulas didn't work either. I bought a bag of Dr.Tim's Metabolite Grain-Free the end of November 2018, so he really started it in December. Six and a half months later, Milo had his senior checkup June 15th and he lost a pound! We are super proud of Milo and very happy with Dr.Tim's Metabolite formula.

Just like people, it takes time for them to gain weight, and it takes time for them to lose it. I like that I can feed Milo the same quantity of food so that he feels full and he will still lose weight. This food IS for small dogs- you will be glad you tried it, especially if nothing else had worked. Super pleased with Dr. Tim's! Thank you Dr.Tim! … more

    Put weight on my dogs

    By on

    I have 2 king charles cavaliers one with a bad back and the other with a issue of eating anything I put out. So... to keep them at a weight between 15 and 17 pounds I have been feeding them purina om I switched to Dr tims and gave them 2/3 of a cup plus green beans and in one month they both gained over a pound and 1/2 Treats for these dogs are watermelon, green beans etc. I am very careful as these dogs can have so many health problem. The vet always tells me they are at a perfect healthy weight. SO DR TIMS is not for SMALL dogs .
