Many pets suffer from some sort of an anxiety issue.  The most common problems that we hear about are fear of thunder/storms, separation anxiety, and car/travel anxiety.  In the past, veterinarians have used medications to help calm the pet.  Sometimes the medications helped, sometimes they did not.  Also, many owners did not like how their pet acted after the medicine took effect.

 

Now there is a solution for anxiety problems that does not involve medication and it comes with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee! 

 

Thundershirt

Poppy modeling an XXS Thundershirt!

 

The most popular question about this new product is, how does it work???  The Thundershirt uses gentle pressure to calm the pet. Pressure has been used to eliminate anxiety for many years, from veterinarians and trainers using it to calm animals during training/treatment to parents swaddling an upset newborn. It is believed that the pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system. In a survey of over 2000 Thundershirt customers, over 80% of dogs showed a significant improvement in symptons when using the Thundershirt.
