Thundershirt is an effective treatment for the majority of dog and cat anxieties and fears.
Make no mistake - for a very large number of dogs, Thundershirt’s gentle, consistent pressure provides a great calming result. The pros related to most types of pet anxiety are obvious. However, Thundershirt also represents a very useful tool for managing your dog's excitability or hyperactivity around strangers, on the leash, or in a training situation. Thundershirt’s calming effect gets your dog to focus (or refocus) his/her energies more effectively and in a more constructive manner. This enhances the efficacy of training.
Thundershirt’s design applies gentle, consistent pressure on your kitty's torso - pressure that has an effective calming effect on most cats. This type of pressure is helpful in successfully reducing anxiety for people and their pets over many years.
Examples include parents swaddling babies, veterinarians utilising squeeze chutes during the process of vaccinating cattle, and thousands of people around the world with autism making use of pressure to relieve lingering anxiety. ThunderShirt's have been found effective for over 80% of all pets. Due to the nature of this product, we cannot guarantee the effectiveness as each pet is different.
