Cats and the Thundershirt

The Thundershirt applies gentle and constant pressure to dogs and cats when they are fearful or anxious. Traveling can be a tramatic experience for an animal so it might be a good idea to let the cat experience time in the car for short rides first and then advance to longer ones.

The Thundershirt worked so well on the dog that now they  have one for cats. It is recommended by vets and dog trainers and is drug free and easy to use.

The Thundershirt applies gentle and constant pressure to dogs and cats when they are fearful or anxious.

These are good to use for car travel, vets visits, general fearfulness, grooming and even litter box problems.

Traveling can be a tramatic experience for an animal so it might be a good idea to let the cat experience time in the car for short rides first and then advance to longer ones.

Endorphins or oxytocic are released by the body when it is feels the constant gentle pressure to the torso.

Veterinarians use pressure on cattle when they are administering vaccines, Parents use blankets folded close to the body to calm their babies, and those with autism use pressure to relieve all manner of anxiety.

They have recently opened the Thundershirt Training Center across the country. And if your cat doesn’t want to move in the Thundershirt or what is called ‘freeze and flop’ simply give it alittle time. Cats are very sensitive to touch and it may take them a little time to get used to having this on their body. If they seem to feel uncomfortable with it on try playing with their favorite toy or doing some other activity for 5-10 minutes. If it doesn’t help take it off and try it again in a few minutes. Try this 2or 3 times to help the animal get used to having this on.

The Thundershirt is made of durable, breathable and washable fabric and can be cleaned easily. Merely wash it in the regular cycle using mild detergent and hang to dry.

If your veterinarian isn’t aware of this new way of handling dogs and cats the people at this new Thundershirt Company in Durham, NC would be glad to send them information or even talk to them on the phone. It is a relatively new concept.

If you are letting your animal wear the Thundershirt for longer periods of time you might want to check for irritation points. The Thundershirt comes in three sizes and so if it seems too lose or tight it can be exchanged for another size. And if you are concerned about your animal getting overheated you might want to watch for the tongue hanging out and heavy panting. Be sure your animal has fresh water nearby.

You have 45 days after purchasing the Thundershirt to be assured that this will work for your dog or cat. If it doesn’t then feel free to bring it back for a full refund.
