Thank you Crunch. You are a god send. I gave up 5 months ago. I will place an order tonight for the Lidocaine alone, then follow up on a few other anti-biotic type medicines (z pak for one) that I am told would be nice to have. I will order each one separately. Thanks for being the path finder!

shopmedvet.com is usually where I get them, and no Rx or medical license required to ship to FL. They sell the syringes and needles separately or together as a combo. A 3-5 ml syringe with a 25-30 gauge needle would be a good choice for injecting lidocaine before suturing/stapling a laceration. https://www.shopmedvet.com/product/96395 They sell them by the box too. Never had a problem ordering with them, shipping cost is $10 unless you buy over $100 though. They run sales with good prices sometimes, and they don't spam (or sell) your email.

Crunch: I ordered the Lidocaine by itself. I got spooked trying to order hypodermic needles; figured it best to get the Lidocaine first.
Any advice on ordering the needles? They were flagged to not go into the CART without contacting them first. Thanks.
You can go to CVS or TSC and get needles.

I use them to inject my squash vines with BT solution if they get infected with squash borer larva.

Is there a reliable website for expiration dates, or how long past the stamped date you can go? I know some will turn poisonous. I want to get some, but I never get sick enough to need antibiotics. I haven't had to take any since August of '02, had walking pneumonia in boot camp. Since then, nothing. I'd still like to, just in case.
Tetracycline is one I know of that can become toxic when outdated.

But it's the exception and not the rule. Most meds simply lose potency over time.
