Description

Kelp is the variety of seaweed that is a particularly rich source of minerals, and is known for its high levels of iron and iodine. It provides all 37 minerals and trace elements that are necessary to maintain a healthy metabolism, and so is also a valuable all round mineral supplement. Our pure Dorwest Kelp Seaweed Powder is easily administered by adding to the feed and is an acceptable alternative to our Kelp Seaweed tablets if preferred, although it does not have the added strength of the extract that are present in the tablets. Ideally give Kelp Powder from the Autumn right through the Winter months as this is when all animals naturally experience greater coat growth as they develop their winter coats. As well as promoting dense coat growth Kelp Seaweed also helps to maintain good pigmentation.

Ingredients

Elderly Topsey, cat, has lost condition and weight.

Hi. I've been researching how I can give my old girl a boost in her nutrition and kelp came up over and over again. She eats very frequently, her coats lacks luster. I've checked her symptoms and has possible thyroid problems. I cannot afford the high prices that vets charge and they would have 3 options. She gets too distressed when I give her her worm treatment in tablet form. She'll leave food if I crush them too. She does not like other people. Irradiation sounds extremely expensive and supplemented food is not an option. She will only eat whiskers and tuna. As iodine is beneficial plus the iron, is this powdered kelp a good and beneficial supplement?
Thanks

It is quite possible that your cat has an over-active thyroid gland, releasing excessive amounts of thyroid hormone. If so, then a high iodine supplement is not sensible or required. The special diet is deliberately low in iodine to try and limit the amount of hormone released. If her coat is bad I would suggest one of the fish oil supplements added to food. She might quite like this (the Salmopet product is good for cats.) Alternatively just try to get her to eat some oily fish, such as tuna or sardines. Ideally, she should be checked by your vet, though this can be very difficult with some cats. I cannot see a good reason to try the kelp for her.
