Tonsillitis - personal experiences

Tonsillitis experience by - Tessa
Bangor Northern Ireland

My cat had no symtoms other than loud snoring for a few weeks. On examination the vet found tonsils swollen to 15 times the normal size. After antibiotics and steroids the swelling remained the same and the tonsils were removed. Lymphoma was suspected but lab results came back showing it was tonsilitis. Thankfully Henry is now back to his normal self.
