Helpful Tips and Reminders

Directions for use:

➡️ 1 lb ground meat/bones/organs, 1 level scoop Alnutrin supplement, 1/4- 1/2 cup water.

➡️ 2 lb ground meat/bones/organs, 2 level scoops Alnutrin supplement, 1/2- 3/4cup water.

➡️ 3 lb ground meat/bones/organs, 3 level scoops Alnutrin supplement, 3/4- 1 cup water.

➡️ 5 lb ground meat/bones/organs, 5 level scoops Alnutrin supplement, 1 - 2 cups of water (can be adjusted).

Mix water and supplement lightly, add ground raw meat with bones and organs (including liver).

Mix well. Divide into storage containers and freeze unused portion.

Note for NEW raw feeders: it is typically best to choose one protein at a time to mix with Alnutrin. Once a protein is well established, I freely mix different proteins based on ratios and nutritional needs.

HINT: IF you are working on transitioning your cat or ferret to raw you can take the ground meat/bones/organs/supplement, put into ice cube trays, and then freeze. Once frozen pop out of the trays and put in freezer bags or containers. You now have small easy to use servings.

Shelf life of frozen product mixed with supplements: The freezing process itself does not destroy nutrients. There is almost no change in nutrient values during freezer storage. However, prolonged freezing could affect the quality (odor, taste, water retention) of the diet. Taurine is water soluble and defrosting meat will release some water, so the actual meat might end up with a little bit less taurine when thawed. But this loss of taurine is not caused by freezing but water release with some taurine dissolved in it. In case of homemade cat food, if this released water is mixed back into the diet you should end up with the same amount of taurine you had before freezing.

    Easy to make homemade food!

By Brenda on October 31, 2021

I really LOVE being able to switch proteins easily for my cat--when she was on canned food it was basically chicken or fish. This supplement is an inexpensive completer option, and I'm so glad Hare Today carries it.

    A must!

By Susan on September 10, 2020

This is a great supplement, including what a cat needs IN ADDITION to the raw food protein. My old kitty is keeping weight on despite health challenges and I believe this product is a big part of that. I wouldn't want to be without it. Smells good too. Thanks for another great product!

    Homemade food for the win

By Jessica on April 7, 2019

It's so wonderful being able to make your own food at home! You have complete control over what your animal friend consumes, and you don't have to worry about him/her not getting the right amount of vitamins/minerals. The powder dissolves very easily in water and mixes well with the ground meat. Thanks so much Hare Today for providing this supplement and for your detailed instructions!

using Alnutrin is the easiest way I've found, to guarantee my cat is getting what she needs to thrive. She seems to like the taste and I like the fact that my Vet says her lab work is normal.

    Feeding cats raw made easy...

By Jennifer on September 23, 2015

I've read several websites with great recipes for mixing homemade raw diets for cats; however, some are more convoluted and require the addition of taurine, various vitamins and minerals. Last order I tried a few different ground meat/bones/organs and added the Alnutrin to ensure the cat food has the required supplementation. Super easy! And I feel good knowing my babies are getting exactly what they need. Definitely recommend it.
