Throat infection in cats

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection in cats

throat

He had to have 3-5 ml shoved down his throat a couple of times a day, in addition I had to shoot a pill down his throat with a straw and he had to have fiber added to his food. It was horrible and none of it worked very well. Our new vet was young and fresh out of vet school and recommended Miralax. I add about 1/4 tsp to some tuna, tuna juice or a couple tablespoons of wet food once a day. It gives him some loose stinky stools but it is so simple and it works.
Her food choices put me to shame :)...lots of fruits, veggies, loves yogurt and eats whole grain cereals and breads. The only thing we have to remind her about drinking enough water. We understand how important water is to help cleanse your body of toxins...ect. She averages 6-8 hours of structured exercise a week. We also ensure she takes her daily vitamins on a regular basis. She can't avoid school or kids at sports, but if we know people are sick with anything, we try to keep her away.
Fur is very soft, flurry, no hair balls. The owner of female cats...... Can you check your cats and see is there a big lump under between her back legs? Please post here and let me know even if it is "No".
None of the others seem sick and they wont ever trust me again to capture them in the humane traps no matter what i try. I have some human antibiotics in capsule form of Amoxicillan 500mg and ciprofloxacin 500mg. Could I sprinkle a little of this on his food over a period of (how many days)??
I can breathe fine out of my nose, it's just when I breath through my mouth I can feel the constricting of the throat. I've also felt some phlegm in my throat and I can't clear it out. I don't have any cough at all, but when I make myself cough to try and clear my throat, no phlegm comes up or moves at all. I can take deep breaths and expand my lungs fully, with no problem. No heavyness in the chest or discomfort there. I've been having anxiety attacks since december '05 also.
I have sever pain in the right side of my neck just below my ear and in the right side of my throat, and in my right ear, it comes in waves of pain. I can't use a q-tip in my right ear it hurts to do so. I don't have tonsils anymore. It's been goin on for 2 weeks now. My gland on my right side, just blow my ear is swollen.
I'm 35. As a child, I would wheez from being around cats, dust, and from extertion in cold weather. I never saw anyone until 2.5 years ago in IL. Dr gave me Advair 250/50 and Singulair. I moved to CO 2 years ago. I have always had Xopenex but have never used it up until this winter. This winter/spring I have been sick 4-5 times with sinus infections, lung mucous, flu, cough. I have had a short dry cough for 9 months now. I never have seemed to get over one cold before I got the next.
i have to cats in the house which i used to allergic to and the room i sleep in has a high humidy any ideas ??
I started feeling like I had something in my throat and my chest was tight. I started getting dizzy so went straight to the ER. Same thing. The next day I was fine, the third day I broke out again. This has been happening to me now for three weeks. Every morning I wake up, hands start to itch....hives ALL over my body and getting worse. Now it spreads to my groin area upper thighs, behind my knees...pretty much all over.
I have constant mucous and sinus drainage in my throat - It is always clear mucous but I clear my throat 50 times a day. I'm not starting to feel some pain in the back of my throat. Swallowing has not become a problem but it is very irritating. Could this be GERD? When awakening in the morning I clear my throat of alot of mucous and phlegm!
  She was shocked, and said that I had a abscess in my throat.  I was losing my hearing in my right ear, my throat was inflamed.  I was in pain from the inflammation.  The throat and nose culture were okay.  She gave me two rounds of Augmentin and pronounced me cured.  I said to here that the sore was still there, and that the glands in my throat were swollen. She dismissed them as salivary glands whose swelling subsided with antibiotics.
I try coughing or drinking but the throat noise does not go away or even change it. I can tell it is not in my lungs, but in my throat. I can breathe shallow and minimize the noise but I feel out of breath then. My daughters say this wheeze is not my snore.They say I wheeze before the snore on intake and then exhale. I hear the noise during the day but I really have to listen to hear it as there is always too much back ground noise.
Sinus tachycardia (began in April when I noticed the redness in my throat), PACs/palpitations (more recently - a week or two), at the time it all started I had a cold but had noticed one side of my throat was red for a while but dismissed it because it didn't hurt. At same time I had itching skin, itchy spots, blood spots under skin, itching eyes, itching on outside of my nose, soreness inside my nose etc...
All that considered, I seldom have any noticable allergic symptoms in general. Hives-when-sick is the only symptom I have other than when I'm in a house with cats (itchy eyes, sore throat, runny nose, etc). I know it is possible that allergen exposure may be continuous or frequent but does not trigger hives except when sick. I find this idea intersting (as compared to idiopathic) as it suggests the possibility of avoiding something ergo no hives.
About two years ago I started having severe allergies and suspected black mold in my apartment. I also had recently acquired two cats. Suddenly I started having ringing in my ears and was diagnosed with a salivary gland infection to which I was treated with antibiotics. The ringing came back and I was again treated with antibiotics (they didn't work the second time). In the course of the second dose of antibiotics I became dizzy and have been every since.
These studies also link increased reports of cough, wheeze, phlegm, and bronchitis with the annual average household NO2 concentration as well as an enhancement of the effect of viral infection in asthma. Biological contaminants certainly contribute to poor air quality, including indoor endotoxin, products from Gram-positive bacteria, and 1,3 β-glucans from molds and may also impact airway inflammation in both atopic (allergic) and non-atopic subjects.
Its is now been maybe 3 months and again i got sick with a chest cold post having surgery getting my wisdom teeth removed the cold went away after about a week because i was on pennicilin for the surgery, still continiously i have the feeling like the kernal stuck in the back of my throat ive had the oral surgeon check ive had a dentist check all to no resolve.
Never had one of those before. Does this happen? In fact, I have only ever had about 4 yeast infections in my life and they were all over 20 years ago. This is soooooooo aggravating and frustrating and painful and itchy and I really don't know what to do. I am taking Fluconazole (150mg) and I have a 1% Hydrocortisone Canestan cream...sound right? Thanks for any info and insight!
For about a week now, I have felt like there is something stuck in my throat. When it first started, I could feel it all the time and it felt like a piece of food was stuck. A few days later it only felt like a tickle, as if a piece of hair was caught in my throat. The past 3 days, I feel it off and on. Sometimes not at all. When I eat, I usually don't feel it, especially if it's cold food. It feels like it's right at the back of my tongue, at the top of my throat.
My three year old niece was just diagnosed with strep throat. She's allergic to cats, and she was playing with some kittens all weekend. Could this be the reason why she got strep throat?
Is it possible to get a lung infection or pneumonia from breathing in cat litter? The night before last I cleaned out the litter and for the next few hours I was having some chest pain and tightness, and my throat was getting sore. I felt better by the time I went to bed and woke up without any chest pain or issues. Then I went to class and after walking around a bit I developed the issues again, which sort of came and went throughout the evening and were much better when I went to bed.
At this point, it is a matter of finding what works and in the meantime clearing out any infection that might still be in my body. I hope this helps.
Well, guess what it was - cat scratch fever! Do you have any cats in your house?
It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
It is always constricted and dry feeling, and variates between feeling like someone is stabbing my throat, kneeing me in the throat, or has just spread poison oak oils down my throat. Swallowing does not offer me any form of relief, for either my ears or throat.
At this stage, I'm thinking my throat problem, at least, might be caused by mold in the basement. I spend quite a few hours a week doing work down there. The ringworm is all but history. Itching and visible signs are gone, through the use of the Lamisil, which I'll apply for another week.
Hi Everybody I have been following these discussion for a while, and it looks like we all got a similar problem. My problem started in February of this year when I had a severe Throat Infection ( My throat felt like somebody stuck a hot candle underneath it, it was that painful).
Most cats will stop eating when suffering this infection due to mouth pain. Adult cats usually aren't as affected as kittens are, but this is a tough infection for cats of every age and can be fatal if not managed. Hospitalization is needed from time to time if the cat will not eat. Calici is often carried for months, even years, and may cause milder flare ups throughout the cat's life. The other most dangerous upper respiratory infection that can cause these symptoms is feline herpes.
I also read that antibiotics actually aggravate the infection. But my GP doesnt seem too interested in my suggestions. Hope you can shed some light on this.
