Tonsillitis experience by - Charlene
My cat was first diagnosed with upper res issues and was on ClindaMed , did not help. Then received a shot and still did not work. Then vet diagnosed tonsilitis and is now taking Clavamox for the last two days and see no improvement. This is Thursday and on Monday scheduled for xray, blood work. He will only lick the juice of canned cat food and coughs like he is coughing up a fur ball. Hard to swallow and gulps .... pray that he will get well soon. Not sure how old he is .... he was a rescue ... and I have owned him for 6 years .... he is beautiful and so lovable and loves the other two cats we have and the two dogs. It is so hard to get his medicine down and I feel so bad for him....I pray he gets well soon.
