Nutrition and Benefits

🐈 Cats need a few basic supplements. We offer the Alnutrin supplement for both boneless and bone in ground meats which makes a complete cat food.

🐈🐕 Cats and dogs should also be supplemented with fish oil for the omega 3 fatty acids.

Why you'll love Alnutrin Supplements:

❤ They can be used in raw or low-fat cooked meat formulations.
❤ They are free of ingredients from China or India. All raw materials in our supplements are manufactured in the USA, Europe or Japan.
❤ They are made with human food grade raw materials.
❤ Made with mixed tocopherols (read more about benefits of mixed tocopherols bellow in Vitamin E section).
❤ They are free of controversial chemical additives like BHT, BHA, ethoxyquin and menadione.
❤ Free of non-essential ingredients like kelp, psyllium husk, flaxseed, soy, yeast, rosemary, garlic, fruits and veggies.
❤ They are made with amino acid chelates for better absorption of iron and copper.
❤ Formulated to meet AAFCO nutrient profiles.

Helpful Tips and Reminders

A quick how to:
• I would recommend putting one of our ground packages directly into the refrigerator in a dish or Ziplock bag. Allow to thaw for 1-2 days in fridge.
• Once the meat is workable, mix together with Alnutrin, water and fish oil, following the instructions on the Alnutrin bag.
• Add water first in a large mixing bowl.
• Then add Alnutrin and mix those together well.
• Next add fish oil (or add at mealtime).
• Then mix in meat and organs.

Once you have mixed and portioned your food, you can create a rotation from the freezer to the fridge.

Warning: This supplement should not be used in combination with any other supplementation, except salmon or sardine/anchovy oil. It is not a typical vitamin supplement for your cat. Please do not feed it to your cat without incorporating it into a homemade diet according to our directions. Do not add it to commercial cat food. In case of accidental overdose, contact a veterinarian immediately.

    Doing great

By Kat on February 28, 2023

I have 4 cats and they're all thriving on thier new diet. I changed diets because my older cat was suffering from traditional cat food but now all my babies are happy and healthy and I'm really thankful for that.

    Directions have changed

By Sandy on April 11, 2020

Alternative Nutrition (the company that makes Alnutrin) has revised directions/labeling on the Alnutrin just for Hare Today.
They are not the same directions as the Hare Today's old packaging that has directions just for liver. Now they assume you are buying their "ground organs" to mix with the meat. I contacted Alternative Nutrition and they said the supplement was the same mixture, but the directions were adjusted for Hare Today and using their "ground organs." So if you want to buy your own liver and not use Hare Today's "ground organs", you use the old directions which are 2 pounds of ground meat, 13.4 grams of Alnutrin, and 28.4 grams liver. Now, that 28.4 grams of liver is 3% liver, so I double it to 56.8 grams which is 6% liver.

Response from Hare Today: We recommend our ground organ mix with the Alnutrin + Calcium as Liver, Heart and Gizzard are included in our poultry ground organ mixes, all of which would be naturally included in a prey diet as our creator intended.

    Great to use when recipe has no bone

By Jodi on February 6, 2019

I started using Alnutrin because of the convenience and because my cats liked it better than my homemade supplements. This product is great for those recipes that don’t contan bone.

    Easy supplementation!

By Doris on May 19, 2017

I use Alnutrin w/ Eggshell Calcium to supplement boneless meat/organs, following the recipe in the product description. It is slightly more expensive than purchasing all the individual supplements, but also very convenient and easy!

I prefer to use a scale to accurately measure the amount of supplement, however, so I contacted Marta Kaspar to determine the appropriate amount -- the scoop provided when purchasing this product is a Hare Today exclusive!

"One leveled Hare Today scoop is equivalent to 5.2 grams of Alnutrin with EggShell Calcium," so 31.2 grams of supplement is needed for the Hare Today recipe.

Note: I also add a source of Omega 3 fatty acids when using Alnutrin, such as salmon oil, krill oil, or green-lipped mussel powder.

    A life saver

By Maureen on March 20, 2017

I positively love the Alnutrin + Calcium. Cats need a calcium source, no exception to that rule. When I am feeding a boneless meal this makes my life easy. I have no interest in bone meal and don't want to save, dry and grind eggshells. When I feed a boneless meal all I need is 4 lbs boneless meat, 1 lbs organ and 6 scoops of Alnutrin with mixed in 1 cup water. So easy.

    Contains eggs

By tricia on June 2, 2016

I think this would be a great product, but our cat can't tolerate eggs; it created an allergic reaction.
It's difficult to find feline food products and supplements that don't contain eggs, even though it's not unusual for cats to be sensitive or allergic to them.
Alnutrin stood behind their product with great customer service, but we had to search for an alternative supplement for making our food.
I hope they will reformulate their product and make it vegan.

Response Hare Today: Cats are obligate carnivores and should not be fed a vegan diet. Egg Yolks are usually not an issue with most cats but if you do have a cat that has an allergy to eggs follow this recipe but omit the eggs. https://hare-today.com/product/other/taurine_powder

    Very happy

By Patty on February 28, 2016

I feel better knowing that our cat is getting complete nutrition. We use this when our cat food recipe is short on ground bone.
