My cat just visited the vet couple days ago to get her second dose of deworming medication shot. She was acting completely normal after the visit but the next day, I noticed a bald spot in between her shoulders where she got the shot. It looked red and scratched up so I thought she was having a mild allergic reaction to the medication. (She only got one shot this day) I continued to observe her and the wound and noticed no abnormalities. The next morning I checked, it looked like her wound was healing pretty well. But later on that day when I rechecked her spot, it looked worse than the first night and caught her scratching the area. I purchased an e-collar hoping that would stop her but she continues to scratch her wound. What can I do to prevent her from messing with the wound. Thank you in advance!

I've done this with two of my girls - bought a onesie. I treated the area with OTC medication, applied a bandage and then put the onesie on them. As you can see, Cleo was not happy about it, but it worked.

With Cali, to keep the bandage in place, I wrapped an ace bandage around her body a couple of times, but I don't think that's necessary in your case.
