Absolutely! Naturally high in antioxidants, sea algae not only has anti-inflammatory properties, but it’s a natural form of iodine that is turned into thyroid hormones, aka how metabolism is controlled.
Iodine is an essential nutrient, but deficiencies or excess have been linked to thyroid issues like hyperthyroidism in cats.
Though, the cause isn’t very well understood, iodine needs to be incredibly regimented in these cases. So, if your cat has hyperthyroidism, Cat Breath should NOT be given.
Hyperthyroidism tends to happen in older cats and is a gradual onset. But some of the first signs are weight loss and howling when they normally wouldn’t. The earlier you see the signs and symptoms, the better you can protect your cat, so be mindful of potential changes.
