Dr. Tims Freeze Dried Treats from Chewy.com | Product Review

It's no secret that we love Chewy.com.  Living in a very rural area with very little selection for many things, including dog food, treats, toys and supplies, we shop online a lot.  With Chewy's great selection and super fast home delivery, we do quite a bit of shopping there.

At this point, when that big brown UPS truck pulls down our lane, all three dogs are excited and sure that it is bringing them another box from Chewy.

The last Chewy box contained some dog treats for Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie to taste test from Dr. Tim's Pet Foods.
Dr. Tim's offers several varieties of freeze dried treats:
  • Natural Beef Chips
  • Natural Chicken Chips
  • Natural Turkey Chips
  • Natural Beef Liver
  • Clean Tripe (beef)
  • Natural Oxtail Chips
We received a 4 oz container of the Natural Beef Chips.

As you can see, these treats vary in size from very small to about 1", so they would work for any size of dog.  Plus, they are also fine as cat treats.

Rosie looks a bit desperate to have a second taste of Dr. Tims Natural Beef Chips
Dr. Tim's Natural Beef Chips Genuine Freeze-Dried Dog and Cat Treats are 100% real, USDA inspected beef hearts that are freeze dried.  Made in Wisconsin, they contain absolutely nothing else.  In addition, the beef is sourced in North America.

Beef heart has a high concentration of Coenzyme Q-10 and also contains high levels of taurine and L-Carnitine.  Beef Chips can be served as-is or reconstitued in cool water for 5 minutes.
Rudy loved taste testing Dr Tims Natural Beef Chips from Chewy

A 4 oz container is $11.99 at Chewy.com.

Verdict: Recommended! I like that these are US sourced and made, single ingredient treats.  They are freeze dried, so no preservatives needed.  All three dogs love them and they're a great size as training treats. Though 4 oz sounds small, because these treats are freeze-dried, it really is a generously sized package for the money.

Jeffie barks for all three dogs:  YUM!

As a veterinarian and musher, Dr. Tim Hunt needed dog food that promoted stamina, endurance and performance through proper digestion.  

He began with a cement mixer and ideas in his garage in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. 

Today Dr. Tim's Pet Foods is a family owned and operated company which produces pet food and treats that are sourced only from North America.

 There are lots of reasons to like Chewy.com
  • Fast shipping to our front door (free if our order is over $49)
  • Over 200 brands to choose from in pet food, treats, and supplies
  • Great prices and frequent sales
  • Easy to navigate web site and terrific customer service
  • Chewy.com gives back via their Shelter and Rescue Network
  * We received one package of Dr. Tim's Freeze Dried Treats from Chewy.com in exchange for our honest review of the product and service.  We received no other compensation - financial or otherwise.
