i know that there have been some recent studies about cats developing antibiotic resistance that directly contradict one another--winn feline foundation reported on one sometime last year, you could check out their blog at www.winnfelinehealth.org; they may have also been the ones who reported on the second study.
i know that one of them showed that there has been NO increase in antibiotic resistance in cats re: one of the more common drugs (an amoxi compound, i think), which was VERY heartening. i'm sorry i don't remember the details; i quite probably sent the link when i got it and it's hiding in the archives someplace, but that's the one i know came from winn. do a search for something like, "antibiotic resistance in felines" and see what comes up--my answer to most things!
