Others have already explained the theory behind why it generally works so I just wanted to add some additional info about what your expectations should be. The Thundershirt requires at least a week or two of gradual training (if not more) to really get your cat comfortable with the idea of it. It's possible your cat will absolutely hate it at first so you should be ready with lots of patience when trying to train your cat to appreciate it. Also, some cats will just completely refuse wearing any kind of vest or harness so that is something you should be prepared for as well. What could be easier is to train the cat not to fear car rides. This takes time as well, but could be more effective in helping your cat's anxiety.

What training is required for using ThunderShirt for anxiety and fear issues? For many types of anxiety or fear issues, no training is necessary! Just put ThunderShirt onto your dog or cat and you will likely see results with the very first usage. However, for some, it may take two to three usages to see maximum results. For some more serious anxiety cases, such as severe separation anxiety, you should consult a good trainer for how to integrate ThunderShirt into a training program. Back to Top My Thundershirt Experience My cat Juliet has severe anxiety such that it gives her interstitial cystitis (it's a bladder condition that they think is caused by stress). She's pretty much afraid of everything that moves. I bought a Thundershirt and tried it on her several times, but the process of getting her in it upset her so much that I immediately removed it each time. We eventually put her on amitryptaline for her anxiety. Dealing with Car Anxiety Another cat, Ginger, got really upset when we had to take her to the dermatologist (she puked in the carrier each time). We normally don't have a problem because it's normally 1 minute to the vet, but the dermatologist was over an hour away. I didn't try the Thundershirt on Ginger (she's probably too big for the one I bought for Juliet anyway), but we put Ginger in a harness with a leash and I sat in the backseat with her in the car and she did great on her next trip to the dermatologist.

For the past 11 years, our vet has medicated him with Elavil (amitryptyline) a tricyclic antidepressant drug used to treat depression in humans. As the years went on, we need to continue to increase his dose. We found a partial solution in using a calming collar, which contains mother cat pheromones. However, the problem was not solved. Since buying the Thurndershirt for Casper in December, 2012, he has been quiet at night and is completely off medication. He is also much more affectionate during the day. We have observed a synergistic effect with the collar plus the ThunderShirt and continue to use both. I have recommended ThunderShirt to everyone I know with pet behavioral problems. Thank you so much for a solution to Casper’s anxiety problem without drugs! From real world experience helping millions of dogs and cats, we know that ThunderShirts help for over 80% of cases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cats5dogs3 Not only for anxiety I was looking for a child's shirt to cover the cat's torso while the body wall hernia surgery healed. Also, tried small dog's coat, which he slipped out of and then I saw the Thundershirt for cats. Not only did it decrease anxiety, but cover the incisional area and stay in place. It worked so well. I will use this again. It can hold gauze in place in those unusual areas that are hard to anchor. January 19, 2016 Why does ThunderShirt work?
