Timberwolf Dog Food Review

Timberwolf dog food products are manufactured and marketed by Timberwolf Organics, Inc. Their dog food formulas are specifically designed for carnivores “with high levels of animal based amino acids, multiple grains, fruits, vegetables, seeds and herbs”.  The manufacturer of Timberwolf dog food formulas claims that their products are free from artificial ingredients or preservatives.

We highly recommend Timberwolf dog food, it uses great quality ingredients and has high meat content.

Timberwolf formulas attempt to mimic the diet of a wolf in the wild including high levels of meats and essential fatty acids. To assure freshness and wholesomeness, Timberland dog food is placed in food grade foil-lined bags that will protect the food from oxygen and retain the dog food’s natural moisture balance.

There are currently 8 Timberwolf dog food formulas which have all been guaranteed to meet the AAFCO nutrient profiles required for all life stages.

The protein-rich rations of Timberwolf dog food products are derived from top meat sources including chicken and chicken meal, herring meal, lamb meal, salmon and salmon meal, elk, bison, white fish meal, and turkey meal. Each Timberwolf dog food formula pairs up a raw meat source and a meat concentrate particularly meat meals in an effort to achieve optimum meat content and consequently high protein levels in the diet.

Fresh meat sources such as lamb, elk, chicken, or bison are desirable meat ingredients however these contain high amounts of water which is lost during processing thus leaving only a fraction of the original weight. The incorporation of meat meals is an effort to add to the protein content of the dog food since meat meals contain more than 300% protein compared to fresh or raw meat. In many dog food brands, meat meals are generic, which means the source/s are not specified. The usual sources for these meat meals are meat parts and by-products of meat processing which have been declared unfit for human consumption.

For Timberwolf, they made it a point to specify the type of meat meals to add authenticity to their claim of using only top quality ingredients.

Timberland dog food formulas may be grain-free and the main carbohydrate source is sweet potatoes, a good source of complex carbohydrates.

There are also Timberwolf dog food formulas which contain grains such as oats, barley, and millet which are also good sources of complex carbohydrates with low glycemic indices.

All Timberwolf formulas do not contain soy, simple carbohydrates, corn gluten meal, and artificial additives such as BHA,BHT, and ethoxyquin.

The addition of herring oil, chicken fat, and salmon guarantees a dog food which is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids which are essential to the numerous physiological processes in the body.

Other notable additions include probiotics and chelated minerals. Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms that enhance the functions of the digestive and immune system. Chelated minerals are those which have been chemically attached to amino acids to enhance their absorption and utilization inside the body.

Customer Reviews

Since Timberwolf dog food products don’t contain common allergenic ingredients such as corn gluten meal and soy, there have only been minimal reports on dog food allergies. Most of these reported hypersensitivity reactions have been linked to chicken or chicken meal.

There are also dog owners who echoed out the brand’s high prices that may seem outrageous to some dog owners. Some also criticize the poor customer service of the company.

Overall, Timberwolf is a very high quality dog food and recommended by our experts.

  2. Michelle says:

    Hi Shan here’s some info on Timberwolf and Fromm. http://www.timberwolforganics.com/preservatives.html This is Fromm’s FAQ page they answer more in depth about Ethoxyquin. It is question #15 http://www.frommfamily.com/frequently-asked-questions-dog-food.php#top btw I use Fromm in my dogs rotation and they both do excellent on it.Also my mom and brother use it for their dogs and it’s a big hit at their houses too.All 4 dogs really love the taste of Fromm.I use Champion,Merrick,and Fromm right now but I am looking into a few other manufacturers also.My dogs do excellent on all 3 of these brands.I really like family owned or the ones who make all their own products in house,I just feel they are more trustworthy.

    Here is their response to my question

    Dear Jess:

    Good morning and thank you for choosing TimberWolf Organics for your pet’s needs.

    All of our fish meals are treated with certain qualified natural preservatives based on mixed tocopherols. Natural preservatives are not as efficient as the chemical preservatives such as ethoxyquin, BHT, and BHA but are added at higher levels. We do not source fishmeals that are treated with ethoxyquin.

    Thank you,

    Vicky L. Eddleman

    I know I can speak for Michelle, and myself on this one. Their is nothing that feels better,,, than knowing you have had something to do with a dog getting on to a good diet.

  6. Michelle says:

    Yeah Jess you are right it makes me feel really good to know that I helped a dog…Hey check this out,it looks pretty good it just might go into my dogs rotation… http://www.timberwolforganics.com/wild.html

  7. Jess says:

    It looks pretty darn good. I am trying to find a simple food to take the place of California Natural. But I am gonna buy one more medium bag with the coupon I am getting. Just can’t pass up a deal like this.

    http://www.naturapet.com/

    I just found out the butcher shop I go to sells frozen pet food for 1.29 a pound. I gotta think it is mostly fat trimmings, just like abady. So I bought a package for 2.25. I am gonna try and slice(I have a jig saw)the frozen meat into 1/2 inch slices and then I can keep it frozen, until I what to give him some. I bet Tonys gonna love that.

  8. Michelle says:

    Hey Jess Thanks for the info on that coupon..I went through my address book and requested a coupon for everyone I know that has a dog/cat…at least we can use the coupon before P&G screws it up too much..that sucks-it will be the only bag I ever buy,the grain free chicken looks really good..Oh well their are lots of other more trustworthy manufacturers out there…I read an interesting/informative article,check it out… http://www.timberwolforganics.com/myths.html

  9. Can anyone tell me why distributors to the natural Pet places are not carrying the Timberwolf dog food. I cannot find it anywhere in North Dakota or Minnesota. Thanks

    hello.. I’ve read a few comments and i’ve seen “rotation”.. I assume that you’re referring to a rotational diet of dog food.. I always thought that if you mix dog food too suddenly or quickly, it is bad news for your doggy”s stomach.. I just don’t know what this means. Also, i’ve been feeding my dog Nutro ultra holistic superfood. I really want to change to orijen but it’s very expensive.. Is Acana good enuff>?

  11. sumanth says:

    hello i have a 3 month old siberian husky i have ben feeding him royal canin maxi starter but when i shifted my food to timber wolf its stomach get totaly upset and for 2 days its going loose motion so how to cure my puppy pls help

  12. Jess says:

    Jon, Acana is a fantastic dog food. Rotation feeding, means finding a few brands that agree with your dog and rotate them, but even then you should change slowly. With my dog I feed Orijen Adult, Orijen Red, Orijen 6 fish and TOTW (Wetlands & Wild Sierra). I can change any time with no issues with any of these foods, but this might not work for all dogs. The 6 fish does unbelievable things for a dogs coat and I give my dog at least one cup every day. Keep in mind Tony eats 5 cups every day because he is pretty active.
