dogsWhether you enjoy feeding your dog a diet of *raw dog food recipes or *homemade dog food recipes that are partially or wholly cooked, know that you are making the best choice to ensure the health and longevity of your pet. It’s no secret that store-bought pet foods are unhealthy overall, nutritionally deficient, and lacking the wholesome ingredients necessary to support your pet’s primitive diet.

When possible, I try to prepare primarily raw pet food recipes for my dog, but she does seem to appreciate homemade dog food recipes as a special treat. Here are some of our favorite dog food recipes both cooked and raw. Remember to use organic foods when possible, particularly when following raw dog food recipes, and be certain to add a calcium and mineral supplement like NutraMin to your pet’s meals for optimal nutrition and better health.

Traditional Pet Foods are Simply Not Enough for Optimal Animal Health

Unfortunately, our domesticated pets just don’t seem to enjoy the long, healthy lifespan that their ancestors did in the wild. Much of this is simply due their domestication, which prevents them from seeking out the nutrients present in nature that they were intended to consume. Rather, we as their adoptive families, do the best we can to provide them with healthy, nutritious foods.

Much like the foods that humans consume, animal’s over-processed foods don’t offer all the essential minerals and elements necessary to prosper and be healthy. The powerful ionic minerals within NutraMin powder occur in a natural colloidal form, and the chelating process that occurs gives animal ideal amounts of the essential elements typically lacking in processed pet foods. At the same time, NutraMin Mineral Nutrients use the science of ionic laws to detoxify the body and cleanse the digestive tract.

NutraMin Mineral Nutrients have universal benefits for all animals, and the some of the most common beneficiaries include dogs, cats, birds, horses, farm animals, and even fish.


Animals Go Back to Nature to Find a Solution for their Nutrition Dilemma

We found it in ION-MIN and bring it to you in the form of NutraMin Mineral Nutrients...

Animals in the wild discovered a wealth of nutrients and mineral necessary for life, right from Mother Nature herself in the form of edible clay minerals. Both humans and animals have been documented as clay eaters for centuries. Look at this fascinating study concerning the clay licks of Tambopata where the magnificent macaw provides us with just one example of the ingenuity and instinct of animals in the wild.

“We should follow the animals’ example and turn to nature to aid us – just one reason why NutraMin is so essential to the health of domesticated pets.”

Dog Directions


NUTRAMIN contains high levels of calcium in this chelated form and is a highly important micronutrient, necessary for maintaining healthy bones and teeth for all ages including providing healthy bone growth in kittens and puppies.

Those pet owners who have large breed puppies and are afraid that calcium supplementation may cause excessive bone growth that may lead to malformed bones, do not have to be concerned with supplementing with NUTRAMIN. The calcium needed for proper bone growth will be present in a chelated form in NUTRAMIN and the body of the pet will determine and only absorb what it needs.

NUTRAMIN also eliminates the decision by the pet owner, as to what type of calcium to buy, which source is best, and what amount to safely feed their pet.

It will be best to introduce your dog, whether a puppy, adult or senior to NUTRAMIN with the following  applications;

  • (1 to 5 lbs dogs) - ¼ level teaspoon added to each meal when canned, dry or homemade foods are being fed.
  • (5 to 20 lbs dogs) - ½ teaspoon added to each meal.
  • (25 to 40 lbs dogs) - ¾ teaspoon added to each meal.
  • (45 to 75 lbs dogs) - 1 level teaspoon added to each meal.
  • For every 25 lb increase over 75 lbs, add another ½ level teaspoon to the food.

NOTE : If your pet is ill please double the dose during the illness and continue the increase for one week after.  NUTRAMIN strengthens the immune system.

Cat Directions


NUTRAMIN is an advanced, hydrothermally induced natural creation by the action of the earth, that provides profound use in our pets.

NUTRAMIN is comprised of 57 naturally occurring trace minerals that are chelated, which means these trace minerals occur in a form that the body will not absorb, unless the body needs any of those specific micro nutrients.

NUTRAMIN contains high levels of calcium in this chelated form and is a highly important micronutrient, necessary for maintaining healthy bones and teeth for all ages including providing healthy bone growth in kittens and puppies.

It will be best to introduce your kitten, adult and senior to the following application;

  • (½ to 1 lb cats) - 1/8 level teaspoon added to each meal of canned, dry or homemade foods are being fed.
  •  (2 to 4 lbs cats) - ¼ level teaspoon added to each meal.
  •  (5 to 8 lbs cats) - ½ level teaspoon added to each meal.
  • (10 to 15 lbs cats) - ¾ level teaspoon added to each meal.
  • 18 lbs and higher - one teaspoon per each meal.

NOTE: The NUTRAMIN is very palatable, however if your cat refuse to eat their food which has been sprinkled with the powder, please add the NUTRAMIN® to their water. The proper dose level would be 1 level tablespoon per 2 cups of water and stir frequently as your pet is drinking to keep the product in suspension.

Horse Directions


NUTRAMIN will aid in promoting maximum health for your horse and will also promote healing from many diseases because it enhances the immune system.

NUTRAMIN promotes healthy bones, ligaments, and tendons while stopping bone loss referred to as osteoporosis.

NUTRAMIN is especially important in pregnant mares.

Over the years, NUTRAMIN improved fertility, easier birthing and much healthier offspring, with a much higher survival rates in allied species. It is best to use the NUTRAMIN daily even before fertilization of the mare occurs, and continue it during and after the pregnancy.

The efficiency of the calcium in NUTRAMIN, not only helps the mare to maintain her bone density while pregnant, but also will help her milk production.

In the embryonating foal, good quality, natural calcium is tremendously important to help promote healthy, strong bones, ligaments and tendons.

This is vital to new born foals and helps stop the creation of a weak, decalcified skeletal system which may lead to bone malformation and early crippling.

Proper calcification is vital in those horses competing different types of athletics events.

NUTRAMIN neutralizes toxins and provides an antibacterial action and aids the immune system at all ages.

The best use of NUTRAMIN, is including it with everyday feeding to neutralize any chemicals and insecticides that might unfortunately end up in the feed you are feeding to your horse. NUTRAMIN promotes its antibacterial action against bacterial contaminates.

NUTRAMIN will definitely help the liver that contains toxins to neutralize these toxins and help the liver to recover if too much permanent damage has not already been done.

NUTRAMIN has been used for kidney disease to not only reduce bone loss, but allied studies show that NUTRAMIN® will cause the elevated blood urea that occurs with kidney failure, to be concentrated in the intestines and excreted.

NUTRAMIN contains a natural chelated kaolin that helps sooth the intestines and reduces the chance of colic.

If the dose of NUTRAMIN is doubled, it will cause fluid to be returned to the intestines, and often helps reduce impactions, while also providing antibacterial action against some of the bowel inhabitants that produce further gas production, adding further discomfort to your horse’s colic.

Adding NUTRAMIN to the water in your horses watering facility, will help maintain a low bacterial count, in fact NUTRAMIN can be used as a paste and applied twice daily to skin infections, bacterial eruptions, wire cuts, abrasions and insect bites.


  • Foals should receive one heaping tablespoon of NUTRAMIN sprinkled on their food AM and PM.
  • Adult horses should receive two heaping tablespoons of NUTRAMIN AM and PM.
  • Pregnant mares should receive three heaping tablespoons of NUTRAMIN AM and PM.
  •  Horses suffering from various diseases should receive three to four heaping tablespoons of NUTRAMIN AM and PM.
  • Add NUTRAMIN to the watering containers to reduce bacterial build up. Apply one measuring cup of NUTRAMIN to every 50 gallons of water.
  • Add enough water to the NUTRAMIN to create a paste. This paste may be applied to any skin lesion twice daily for 7 days and continued on if the skin lesion has not quite healed.

Bird Directions


NUTRAMIN is an advanced, hydrothermally induced natural creation by the action of the earth that provides profound use in all species of birds.

“When I first researched micronutrients 3 decades ago, I was quite pleased with how these micronutrients helped to not only control specific problems inherent to birds, but using it daily, did promote maximum health.” Dr. Plechner explains.

NUTRAMIN helped stop feather picking, which can be a major problem with caged birds.

NUTRAMIN neutralizes toxins that the bird may be exposed to in their environment and in their food.
NUTRAMIN has an antibacterial quality which reduces the risk of bacterial infections in the digestive tract including the crop, the food they eat, and the water they drink.
NUTRAMIN contains large amounts of kaolin which is very soothing for the digestive tract.

Due to NUTRAMIN’s ability to promote better absorption in general, it helps vitamins, supplements and foods not only to better absorb but better utilized in the cell for energy and for the production of oxygen. This ability to enhance more efficient cellular use, is due to the fact, NUTRAMIN® contains a negative charge.

NUTRAMIN is important for all birds, whether household birds, small wild birds, game birds, birds of prey and all zoo birds including, the very largest birds like emu and ostrich.

This enhanced absorption causes the following benefits;

  • The feathers to be thicker and the feather colors to be brighter.
  • The egg shell to be much harder. Note: A lot of that is due to the increased levels of silicate and calcium contained in the NUTRAMIN.
  • Increased fertility.
  • Increased viability and survival in newborn.

The NUTRAMIN can be placed on the bottom of the cage as scratch. If used this way, not only will it allow ingestion, but will also help desiccate (dry up) bird droppings and make them easier to remove and helps to neutralize odors.

The NUTRAMIN may be lightly sprinkled over the bird’s food.

The NUTRAMIN can be placed in the bird’s water. Note: for those birds that dip their food into their water first before eating, the antibacterial action of the NUTRAMIN™ in the water will help stop bacterial growth and help reduces the times the water might have to be changed.

NUTRAMIN can be made in to small clay balls that many birds like to peck at during the day.

Many bird species are susceptible to thickened, cracked feet referred to as “bumble foot”. This is usually caused by a staphylococcal infection. To help this problem the bird not only must ingest NUTRAMIN, but you as the bird’s owner can make a moist paste from the NUTRAMIN™ and apply this paste twice daily for at least 7 days to the infected area. This same paste will promote healing of cuts, tears, scratches and lacerations.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR DAILY AMOUNTS OF NUTRAMIN Small birds like finches, canaries, parakeets and quail;

  • 1/4th of a teaspoon AM and PM sprinkled on the feed, or as scratch or in the water.
