Salt and Cats - Is Koshered Chicken Making My Cat Sick?
June 16, 2011 1:11 PM Subscribe
Been giving my cat Kashered chicken - raw or cooked for a while now. Even though the salt is washed out thoroughly no doubt something is left and that doesn't sound like something a cat would be needing in their body.
Now she's sick with a yet undiagnosed disease. Thoughts are creeping in that maybe the salt in the kashered
chicken caused it.

Can someone tell me if they see any thing that could be related to too much salt?
She's been to many vets. The last visit revealed that she had Spondilitis through an x-ray and physical exam. Also it was found through a T4 test that her thyroid levels are low.
She has been gaining weight, is very hungry very frequently, is sleeping much more and her face has changed into a more pinched look.
I'm tapped out financially right now, spending my last money on the most recent vet 2 days ago. I need any and all information, leads and help this good community can offer. Thank you!
