About Me Long-time Pet Owner

Verified Reviewer


  • Comfortable For Pet
  • Works as advertised


  • Hard to put on cat
  • Needs better instructions

Best Uses

  • Going to vet or groomer

One of my cats, Simon, is so docile that sometimes I have to wake him up to eat. But, when he is at the vet's office or groomer, he becomes extremely expressive of his displeasure. He actually screams, hisses and growls, even if a technician is just walking by the carrier. By the time I get him in the examining room, he is completely stressed. The Thunder Shirt is amazing and works as it is advertised. Once the shirt goes on, which is a little difficult (needs better instructions), he takes a few steps and then he flops down on his side and is docile once again.

Comment on this review



About Thundershirt: Thundershirt’s founder, Phil Blizzard, has a 10-year-old, 50-pound mutt named Dosi who will make friends with anyone. But Dosi was extremely frightened by loud noises like thunderstorms and fireworks. Even when the skies were clear, Dosi’s behavior would let her family know if a thunderstorm was coming. Her tail would go between the legs and the shakes and panting began. If it was during the night, she would plant herself on Phil’s chest and keep her family awake for hours. They visited three different veterinarians over the years to find a remedy. The only suggestion was to sedate Dosi, but even the veterinarians didn’t think drugs were an effective solution. You have to anticipate the storm by 1-2 hours for the sedatives to take effect; not an easy task for storms that arrive in the night. And worse, while sedated, dogs can be very unstable on their legs and become a danger to themselves. Dosi would try to jump off the bed and risked breaking a leg, and she would remain groggy and unstable for many hours after the storms had past. So after a couple of uses, the sedatives were set aside. Noise desensitization training was next for Dosi. The concept is to expose the fearful dog to low levels of the problem noise (e.g. thunder recordings) until she becomes accustomed to it and then slowly increase the levels until she is no longer afraid of the real noise. One common problem with this approach is that many dogs don’t react to recordings of thunderstorms or fireworks. They can tell the difference, probably due to the absence of other traits like the smell of ozone, or the feel of barometric pressure changes. This was the case with Dosi… the sound of a recorded thunderstorm didn’t concern her in the least. But even if it did, according to most trainers we have consulted, desensitization is very rarely successful. It takes a tremendous, long-term time commitment by the owners. So for several years, Dosi just had to suffer through the many thunderstorms and 4th of July fireworks. But then they heard about an alternative approach to relieving noise anxiety...the unique approach now offered by Thundershirt. It was amazing. With the very first usage, within two minutes, Dosi’s shakes had practically disappeared, and she lay down. And the gentle, constant pressure of Thundershirt has worked for Dosi ever since. Thundershirt’s gentle, constant pressure has a dramatic calming effect for most dogs if anxious, fearful or over-excited.
