Ingredient Review

Our review of Dr. Tim's Beef Taurine Supplement Freeze-Dried Dog & Cat Food Topper begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Taurine. Taurine is an essential amino acid that is only present in animal protein. Some pets (including dogs) produce their own taurine, but cats do not. Supplemental taurine in pet food helps your companion’s entire body function properly, with important roles in brain, kidney, and heart health.

The second ingredient is Salmon Oil. Salmon oil can be a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids. In pet food, salmon oil may help support your companion’s joint health while contributing to healthy skin and a soft, shiny coat.

The third ingredient is Beef. Beef is meat from any cattle breed. In pet food, beef can be fresh, freeze-dried, dehydrated, ground, or finely processed into beef meal.

The fourth ingredient is Beef Liver. Beef liver is organ meat from any cattle breed. The beef liver in pet food is a source of protein, iron, and many other essential nutrients.

The fifth ingredient is Beef Heart. Beef heart is muscle tissue from the heart of any cattle species. In pet food, beef heart serves as an excellent source of protein, iron, zinc, B vitamins, and many trace minerals to support your companion’s overall well-being.

After the fifth ingredient, the list includes all remaining ingredients. It’s worth noting that ingredients (other than nutritional supplements) located this far down on the list aren’t likely to have an impact on the overall rating of this Dr. Tim's Beef Taurine Supplement Freeze-Dried Dog & Cat Food Topper.
