My cat who is currently a four year old male has gotten Dermatitis at his neck. We took him to veterinarian and we received some medicine for him. I am not sure if it is the Dermatitis or the medicine but he insisted on scratching the infected area with his backlegs to the degree that it became a wound. In order to prevent him we went to the veterinarian again and placed a bandage around the area with medicine rubbed on it.
My problem is that ever since i started applying medicine my cat who normally accepts his medicine without difficulty(Under normal circumstances he understands i am trying to help him) started shying away from the medicine and he started to get nervous around me. It has gotten much worse after the bandaging and now he barely meows merely sitting around with a scowl on his face. I think he thinks i am punishing him and i want to convince him that this is for his own good rather than some punishment method. How can i do that?
