|Loud noises, unfamiliar places and separation anxiety are just a few of the causes of canine stress. An innovative new product is offering a medication-free solution. The Thundershirt is advertised to work by gently applying consistent pressure to a dog’s torso in a way that is similar to the swaddling of a baby.
The product looks similar to a dog sweater from a distance. But unlike a sweater, it can be adjusted to help maintain appropriate pressure to your pet. The manufacturer of Thundershirt claims that the product is substantially effective on over 85 percent of dogs with anxiety issues. As this claim seems quite aggressive, the product’s website has a section devoted to testimonials including many by vets who endorse it.
