    Hi everyone. Thanks again for your responses. I’s been a long haul, but Raven is doing better. Her last x-ray, taken last Friday October 30th, showed the pneumonia clearing up. She’s still getting injections of Amakacin every day, though. Her final shot should be on this coming Thursday.

    Before, one of the technicians who works at her veterinarian’s office was coming to my apartment to give the injections, but that started to be a traumatic experience. Raven ended up cowering and drooling in her crate. The vet tech thought a “venue change” would ease some of her fear, so I’ve been taking her to the vet’s office once a day for her injections, and that seems to be a little better.

    I appreciate all your advice. I know dogs are resilient, but she’s been getting injections since Oct.13th. Ultimately, I feel better not having been the person to do that to her for nearly three weeks now.

    I’ll update after her next follow-up appointment.

    Thanks for your replies!

    Maureen, I live in Los Angeles. As for her antibiotics, she was given Clavamox for her infected bite wound. Once they found the pneumonia, she was given Sulfamethoxazole. Once they got the culture results, they gave me a prescription for Cephalexin. When neither of those seemed to work well, they prescribed Zeniquin. This latest kind, the injectible one, is Amakecin. Does that sound about right?

    I actually called the vet’s office after starting this thread, and one of their technicians offered to stop by my apartment on her way to and from work to give the injections for me. I’m giving her some money for it, but it is more peace of mind for me. Maybe I whimped out??

    She seems a little better tonight. I’ll keep you updated. Thanks again!
