Tonsillitis - personal experiences
Tonsillitis experience by - Mary
My cat was losing weight and I noticed she was only eating the canned food and then seemed to have trouble swallowing. She would sometimes take a bite and then run away. She would also gag and run away. She then got shy of her dishes because she thought they were causing the pain. I had to thin baby food and force feed her. My vet put her on antibiotics. She took them for two weeks and he was going to try another week but I told him what I read about tonsillitis. He tried a broad spectrum antibiotic and that worked! She was eating normal in about three days.
