Q. My cat is very sick there's these 2 swollen knots on each side of her throat,I've been giving her ClinDrops could that help till I get her to the vet?

A. It sounds like lymph nodes are inflamed, hopefully it is infection related but it could also be lymphoma. You need to make it a priority to get to your vets for some blood tests to find out what is going on and to get the appropriate treatment. I wouldn't recommend self medicating as some things can be detrimental to certain conditions.
