Just wondering how it could be done!

My eight pound sulcata, Donald, has an upper respiratory infection. He has to have a shot every three days for a month, as well as drops in his nose. It is all we can do to pull a front leg out far enough to get the shot in. It takes about a 15 minute struggle to do that.

How on earth could anyone give a shot to a really big tortoise? Can it be done?

How do you guys that have the really big guys treat illnesses?
