i don't know if they have something like this for the antibiotics he is 
getting, but my vet gave Annie an injection that lasts for 2 weeks.  she also 
is difficult to pill, give liquids and is super good at hiding.  she can get 
lost in our house very easy.  my Snuggles also hated pills, liquids, any kind 
of meds.  he used every weapon in his arsenal and had no problems with biting, 
scratching me to avoid them.  once, he got a grass seed lodged in his lung, 
almost died and had to be put on oxygen for couple of days   the vet gave him 
shots those days, but sent him home with horse size pills to be given every 
day.  after 1 day, ended up going to vet every day for shots.  that way, i did 
ot have to get a transfusion every day.  dorlis
