Review: Dr. Tim’s freeze-dried turkey hearts

Our girls are always willing taste-testers, but they were especially excited to try these freeze-dried turkey hearts by Dr. Tim’s.

They went crazy for them!

The treats are single ingredient (we received the turkey hearts, which come in small discs), raw, freeze-dried meat that has been USDA inspected and sourced from Wisconsin. Really excellent. I know lots about the benefits of raw feeding, and although we don’t do it ourselves, I think about it a lot. These treats are a nice way to reap some small benefits of raw feeding — without the mess and squeamishness on my part.

We also took a handful of these treats on a walk to a park to work with Pyrrha on her reactivity toward other dogs. They make great training treats, because you can easily break them up, but they don’t disintegrate. Plus, Pyrrha is just WILD about them, so they serve as a really powerful reinforcer in our quest to classically condition her on walks.

Highly, highly recommend these treats! The price may seem a little steep, but the package is generously portioned, and the quality is significant. You get what you pay for here, which is a seriously high-quality snack. They are currently on sale at Chewy.com, so check them out.

Such adorable beggars.

Do you ever feed raw treats to your dogs? If so, what works best for you?

  1. Just got a good three pounds of these raw for the doggies. I plan to dehydrate about 1.5# for Elli as she hates eating organs thawed raw but loves them dehydrated or freeze dried lol. Glad you had an awesome experience with the treats!

  2. Turkey hearts are a favorite around our house (for both dogs and cats), but around here we (the dogs and cats anyway) eat them raw. These seem great, though! Single ingredient treats are hard to come by and are so great to have access to especially for dogs with allergies!

  3. Very cool! I’ve seen these online and have always wondered about them. I know our dogs will love just about anything I bring home, but you never know.

    I so want to get a dehydrator.
