Nutritional Protocol

Here at the Head Butt Hotel, we take great pride, in the work we do, to restore the health of the pets who join our
organization, not to mention the time and financial investment. Nothing could make us happier, than to find the perfect home, where each one can live out
their natural lives, safe, healthy, and loved.
We utilize a Food as Medicine concept here and would like to summarize our nutritional protocol.


For cats with special medical conditions, we have added Hare Today as our specialized RAW resource to
accommodate the individual needs of several of the cats in our care. Ideally, in a perfect world, financially and man-power permitting, raw feeding would be
the optimal choice for all carnivores, both dogs and cats. In the meantime, we continue to offer our residents their standard 8:00 pm ground raw feeding, a
treat they all patiently await and indulge in.


Additionally, we feed the Triumph brand pates (no byproducts) shipped direct thru Chewy.  We supplement
the wet pates with additional fluids for extra hydration, either a splash of Re-sorb electrolytes or filtered Zero Water.


The only kibble we allow our cats to be fed, is the Young Again brand, affordably priced and always includes free shipping to your door.  This brand, unlike all others and particularly the prescription scam brands Science Diet Hills and Royal Canin, is not only grain free, but does not contain any other starch fillers, plants or vegetables, (oats, barley, peas, potatoes, rice, etc., which count as digestible carbs and will ultimately affect their health. We free feed the Cat/Kitten 50/22 formula, given the age range of our residents, being many of the cats who join us, arrive with a history of poor nutrition, often resulting in diabetes, kidney disease, or other health issues as a result of being fed inappropriate high carb foods. We utilize approximate 2 ½ lbs. per cat per month, so from an affordability standpoint, we’re yet to find a comparable product, for preventative and rehabilitation;  the baseline for health of our cats, begins with our food as medicine concept.


Our Platinum water fountains are filled daily with cold filtered Zero water, and we use affordable and natural Pelletized Horse Bedding Pine (Tractor Supply) to
avoid any chemicals often used in the more expensive brands of scented and light litters.


We are a flea free environment, although on the rare occasion when we may need to incorporate flea protection, we use Cheristin and Capstar. When necessary, we also utilize Drontal (de-worming hooks/rounds/tapes) and Profender.


We can’t thank you enough for your interest in our pets, and we look forward to knowing this lucky one will enjoy
many years of love and realize the wonderful life every one of them deserves. Christine, Larry and all the Head Butt Hotel Furry Friends!
