Is there a long acting antibiotic for cats that can be used instead of pills?

Answer

Hi – thanks for your email. You wrote asking if there is a medication by injection that can be give and could take the place of oral antibiotics. The answer is yes. There is a new medication on the market that is an injection (it is expensive) but it lasts about 7 days or so. It is perfect for cats with bite wounds.
