What is Thundershirt?

As seen on TV, Thundershirt is an affordable, drug-free solution for anxiety problems in dogs and cats. Thundershirt uses gentle, constant pressure on your pet's torso (just like a constant hug) to help calm your pet. Unlike most anxiety calming products, Thundershirt does not contain any pheromones or drugs; thereby, leaving your pet calm but not lethargic. Thundershirt is great for dogs and cats with fear of thunder or fireworks (or any loud noise), separation anxiety, travel anxiety, crate anxiety, grooming, litter box problems, barking problems, hyperactivity, leash pulling, and even as a general training tool.

For: Dogs & Cats


Benefits:
Helps calm your dog's or cat's anxiety during stressful situations
Drug-free and easy-to-use
Recommended and used by veterinarians and trainers
Over 80% of dog owners report improvement in their dog's noise anxieties when using Thundershirt
Great for dogs and cats with many anxiety issues, such as: fear of loud noises, separation anxiety, litter box problems, travel anxiety, crate anxiety, and more

How it works:
Thundershirt uses pressure to relieve anxiety. Experts believe that pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system and have been using pressure techniques for years on both animals and humans. Like acupuncture and acupressure does for people, applying pressure to dogs and cats has been proven to help calm them in stressful situations. In fact, 80% of dog owners who tried Thundershirt for a variety of anxiety problems noticed improvement in their dogs. Veterinarians and dog trainers use and recommend Thundershirt for anxiety too.

Cautions:
In severe cases of separation anxiety, it is recommended to use Thundershirt in conjunction with a training program.

Instructions for Dogs:
How to use Thudershirt Wrap Thundershirt around your dog's torso Fit Thundershirt to your dog Fasten Thundershirt to your dog.
1.) Place the Thundershirt on your dog's back and wrap the Short Flap under the torso. 2.) Wrap the Long Flap under the torso and secure with fasteners onto the Short Flap. You should be able to easily slide your fingers between the Thundershirt and your dog's torso. 3.) Wrap the Top Flap down onto the Long Flap and secure with fasteners. Adjust to improve the snug fit and keep Thundershirt securely in place. 4.) Wrap the Neck Straps around the front of the dog and secure with fasteners. You should be able to easily slide your fingers under the Neck Straps and should not feel restricting around your dog's neck.


Instructions for Cats:
How to use Thudershirt for cats Wrap Thundershirt around your cat's torso Fit Thundershirt to your cat
1.) Place the Thundershirt on your cats back and lightly wrap the Neck Straps around the front of the cat and secure with fasteners. Should be able to easily slide two fingers inside Neck Straps. 2.) Wrap the Long Flap under the torso and secure with fasteners onto the Short Flap. Make a comfortable, snug fit. 3.) Wrap the Top Flap down onto the Long Flap and secure with fasteners. Adjust to improve the snug fit and keep Thundershirt securely in place.
Tip: If your pet seems nervous or anxious when he or she sees the Thundershirt, try putting it on the ground and giving your dog or cat a little food, using Thundershirt as a plate. This trick often works because many pets become more comfortable with and trusting of anything that they associate with food.
Note: The fasteners make Thundershirt adjustable for many different body shapes.

Details about Thundershirt:

  • Make sure your pet meets the weight requirements. (See sizing chart below)
  • Every size of Thundershirt includes fasteners to adjust to your pet's unique size and shape.
  • While Thundershirt will usually reduce anxieties in dogs just by putting it on, in severe cases of separation anxiety, it is recommended to use Thundershirt in conjunction with a training program.
  • We recommend measuring your pet's chest to ensure you purchase the correct Thundershirt.

Please note: Our list of recommended breeds is just a guideline, and in addition, our listed measurements differ from the measurements recommended by the manufacturer. Based on surveys that we conducted, we believe our measurements to be helpful when purchasing a Thundershirt for your dog or cat.

My miracle worker! My little high strung morkie was hit by a car and I was told he had a cracked pelvis. There was a chance that he might need surgery, but if I took care of him and kept him quiet it might mend itself. Well with the help of this thunder shirt he is now back to his young self. I had to purchase another one because he worn it daily. After a few months he was able to walk and jump. I love this shirt and it did work for us. 03/23/2014
Brilliant Tiny chi female. Nervous wreck spending days at home alone, destructive etc. thundershirt fixed it all, now relaxed enough to be trainable. 01/18/2014
i have a boykin spaniel that was potty trained and has a pet door but for almost 3 yrs used the livingroom rug daily. she has separation anxiety even if we are merely upstairs and she is downstairs. we tried all of the vets meds and read everything i could find on the subject and nothing helped. our last resort was trying the thundershirt but didn't expect much from it....it transformed our lives immediately....!!!! it's been almost 2 months now and she has not had even 1 accident...buy the shirt...!!! 01/08/2014
certainly worth a try Purchased for a rescued boxer whom was VERY skittish. She was fine with me but didn't want to be anywhere near my husband. (we were made aware she had issues w/males prior) The couple times have put it on her, seems to calm down immediately. The velcro is a little noisy for a nervous dog but see no other method that would be able to adjust as snug. Worth the $ and money back if not happy.....nothing to lose. 11/24/2013
really works I have 3 pits/mix and have tried tranquilizers from my vet even if I gave them early before the incidents it would never work on my older dog.. She could not sit/lie still. Fireworks and loud noises sets her into a frenzy.She would be constantly scurrying everywhere.It was pricy but I decided that if it worked it would be worth it. and to my surprise !! My dog will hear the loud noise and I put the thundershirt on and she just finds a place to lie down and goes to sleep.. I bought for all 3 dogs and now firework celebration is not an ordeal. just put the shirts on and give them a room and they are calm.. worth every penny.. am looking at getting 2 more for my daughters dogs 11/17/2013

Thank you for your question. You are able to use this product on your cat for an extended period of time but you do have to check for irritation to the skin.

Answer: 
No, but it doesn't cover the collar. It's also slim enough that it would probably fit under a harness.

Answer: 
Using a string, wrap from the largest part of your dogs chest until both ends meet in the center and measure the length of the string at that point. Or you can use a bendable measuring tape.
