A Natural Solution. Unlike with medications, your dog will not be sedated, risk unwanted side effects such as liver or kidney damage, and you won’t be making frequent vet visits for expensive prescription refills. And ThunderShirts are not just for Thunder! Whether you have a rescue dog, a shelter dog, or a new puppy, it can really work to improve your dog’s life and yours.
