Dr. Tim… Who Is This Guy?

I had no idea who, or what kind of doctor this Tim could be. Turns out our mystery man is actually a veterinarian and also a successful musher. What in the world is a musher? Well, a musher is actually someone who rides in a sled behind a team of sled dogs.

As a vet, Dr. Tim saw the connection between food and the stamina required for the working dog. He decided to do something about this, and got busy in formulating recipes that would accomplish this. As a result, Dr. Tim’s dog food came to be. Check out Dr. Tim in the video below:
