METABOLITE WEIGHT MANAGEMENT FORMULA

Dr. Tim’s Metabolite Weight Management Formula uses a novel approach to taking weight off your dog by rethinking the process and turning it into a win/win lifestyle for your pet AND you. Our high levels of protein, complimentary fiber system, and moderate fat content work in tandem with your pet’s natural metabolism to support weight loss. Our formula optimizes your dog’s natural ability to burn calories while incorporating all aspects of the weight loss process, from the high quality ingredients to the psychology of the pet owner. Metabolite also helps cut down on excessive begging by managing weight without causing your pet to feel hungry all the time. Functional ingredients such as L-carnitine (to help with fat metabolism), oats, and taurine are included to aid with the overall health of your dog. Our patented BC30 probiotics, prebiotics, and antioxidants are added to enhance your dog’s immune system and promote a natural gut microbiome. Finally, Omega 3 fatty acids in the form of EPA and DHA sourced from ocean fish may enhance your companion’s mental clarity.

Metabolite is made without corn, wheat or soy for the sensitive dog.

Metabolite Weight Management Dog Food has been formulated through the combined efforts of a Ph.D. canine nutritionist and a practicing small animal veterinarian experienced in competitive dog sports.
