I have a cat that has injured his hind leg. And I have an appointment with a vet to get it examined.
The cat is a large, strong, outdoor Maine Coon. He's not going to be happy about me/the vet touching his sore leg. Based on past experience, I'm worried that the cat might bite and scratch me and the vet during the examination.
Is there anything I can do to prevent human injury from a large cat during a painful vet visit?
For example, I might put a e-collar on him to make it hard for him to bite me while I'm holding him. That seemed to work ok when the cat was smaller.
