On a typical stormy night I am woken up by Finnegan panting in my face and then finally licking my face until I lay on the foot of the bed soothe him. Soothing him meaning staying awake all night until the thunder stops, petting him, getting him water and telling him “It’s ok Finny” over and over.
Since I work at a Vet School I decided to talk to some people at work. My friend, who is a Veterinarian, suggested at Finnegan’s next visit to the Vet I talk to them about medication to calm him. My husband has always been against this idea, however he is also always sleeping through the storms!! Then one day at work while I was complaining about being up all night during a storm because Finnegan was scared another Veterinarian said, “How about trying the Thundershirt?” someone else said “Yes, I have heard it really helps” What?? What is this Thundershirt? I needed to try it!! That night I contacted the company and a week later Finnegan became the proud owner of beautiful gray Thundershirt
Two days after Finnegan’s Thundershirt arrived, we had a big storm and it was in the early evening. It was perfect because my -, “my dog doesn’t wear clothes” husband was there to witness the whole thing. Actually there was NOTHING to see. I put the Thundershirt on Finnegan before the thunder and lightning started. He didn’t mind wearing it at all, it was super easy to get on him and he went to lay down in his favorite spot. THAT WAS IT!!! He just laid down. Rob, the -, tried to get him going and see if he would get panting or nervous from the storm but nope…NADA!!!! That night Finnegan slept in his shirt since it stormed on and off all evening. He didn’t wake me once, no licking, no panting, no bed shaking from his panting and anxiety!
I’m a TOTAL believer!! THUNDERSHIRT IS A MIRACLE!!!!!
