This one definitely falls into the category of “I had to see it to believe it.” My dog Baxter is very afraid of thunder, so much so that his teeth chatter, he drools, and he really can’t be consoled. I’ve been concerned in the past that he’s going to get so nervous he has a heart attack (totally possible, someone told me their dog actually died of this), so I asked my vet what he recommended, and he mentioned this product:
Thundershirt is an ideal choice for your pet who’s over anxious or extremely excited. It has a calming influence on the canine and can also relieve stress. This attire makes it easy for both your pet as well as you to deal with a difficult situation. When you want to keep your pet calm at home or during travels, this attire makes a great choice. It is available in xx-small, x-small, small, medium, large, x-large and xx-large sizes.
- Made from long lasting fabric
- Machine washable
- Can be used as a treatment wrap
A Closer Look: Thundershirt is a therapeutic attire that you can make your pet wear whenever any stressful situation requires proper handling.
The Verdict: This thing totally works. My dog is not cured of his thunder phobia, but I am no longer concerned for his life when thunder starts. That’s major!
