I know I'm new at this, but . . . salt isn't going to cure old age. If he's acting normally, and LOOKS fine - aside from having a hard time with the pellets, I doubt that salt is going to change much. Isn't dropsy a fairly obvious condition? And. . . would internal parasites cause choking? I suspect a smaller pellet or a softer form of food is what he may need. . . if he's always been healthy and never been given a salt bath before - again, with no experience to back this up - I'd be MORE nervous about stressing his old body out further by making him adjust to salt in the water.
But I don't want to confuse you, if you feel this is the right course of action, I wish you all the luck in the world with it. *HUGS* I'm so sorry your baby is having trouble, hon...
