Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Hi, I wonder if anybody has experienced their Irish Setter having problems with their tonsils. My vets are not prepared to accept he has tonsillitis as it is not in their medical journal. He has been on antibiotics for 6 weeks and as soon as he stops having them all the symptoms come back not eating, slavering then has a high temperature. When back on antibiotics everything goes back to normal. I have been advised that in their 14 years of practising they have never come across bacteria tonsillitis.
If anybody has had the same problem and has a vet who has knowledge on this could you please let me know.
Fergus has now had his tonsils removed, and has made a full recovery.
