Whether it's fireworks, thunderstorms or other situations that can easily startle a pet, it can be a daunting time for pet owners with dogs and cats, especially ones that are naturally a bit nervous. Many of us are familiar with our pets’ reactions to sudden noises, let alone loud explosions and more. For certain it can be an unsettling experience for them, and sometimes it can have traumatic consequences. In the worst case scenario, a pet can simply die from shock. A close friend of mine lost his dog to a heart attack induced by fireworks. The threat is apparent, and thankfully I recently discovered a product that can help our pets stay calm during those anxiety-inducing periods of time.

As days went by, I had my pup wear it for gradually extended periods of time. When she first wore the ThunderShirt, she was very scared. Eventually she got used to it, and was able to walk around and even lie down in her bed wearing it.
