If you prefer to read, we've broken it into simple terms for you.  

Who: The ThunderShirt is meant for dogs or cats who are experiencing anxiety.  If you want to learn more about how to recognize anxiety in our pets, see this blog article!  Studies show that nearly 50% of dogs and cats have some sort of anxiety! 

What: The ThunderShirt is a calming wrap that you can put on your pet during a stressful situation to help them feel calmer, and less anxious.  It is completely drug-free, and there is no training required.

How: Our patented design applies gentle, constant pressure pressure around your pets torso, which helps them to feel safe and calm.  The effect is similar to swaddling an infant, or using a weighted blanket for adults.  Studies have shown that the constant pressure can actually help to reduce an elevated heart rate, which is one of the reasons the ThunderShirt helps dogs and cats to feel calmer. 

When / Where:  The ThunderShirt is great for so many different use cases.  It is most commonly used during thunderstorms or fireworks, however customers have also seen great success when using the ThunderShirt if their dog has separation anxiety, gets nervous during vet visits, or has travel anxiety as well.
