Thunder Shirt

Would like to see some comments if you have used the Thunder Shirt to calm your pets, good or bad. I hate to spend the $40 if more people say that they didn't work for them. Thanks

In combination with these, the Thunder Shirt works well for our dog when a storm rolls in.... he's a black lab, hound mix...

I've bought two, one for the little dog (20 lbs) and one for the big dog (150 lbs). They work great. Little dog would try and sleep on my head during thunder storms, mow he will still get nervous, but no where near as bad as it was. The big dog would try and get up in bed with at night during a storm and now he just lays on the floor. IMHO they are worth the money.

Our Fred used to get horribly afraid when it thundered. We discussed a thunder shirt for him, since he'd calm down somewhat if I just took him to bed and wrapped the covers tightly around him.

Our vet says they work, and a couple of her customers told me they work (one brought her dog in wearing one..he's afraid of car travel).

Fred seems to have mostly grown out of his fear...I guess he's learned that thunder doesn't mean he'll soon be up to his chin in nasty mud and water anymore. He was abandoned in a dog pen with three other very large dogs...that pen was very low, and became a shallow pond when it rained....warm or cold weather. There were two doghouses...the big dogs took them over, climbing up on top, leaving him in the muck.

He now has his own nice doghouse...three bedroom, two bath, with air and heat. Actually he has two of 'em, one is brand new, on wheels!

I think the thunder shirt worked on our yorkie to tame her high anxiety some, however , all the good it done was undone when we had to take it off with that ripping Velcro sound. She dreaded that.
