|That's the problem..... meds take so long to take effect & I'm not a great believer in meds anyway --- not when they can be avoided. My vet gave me some Ace which if you're familiar with that it's a lot stronger than Benadryl. They give them Ace to keep them sedate after spaying. And it will make her downright weave when she walks but not when it storms. But again the problem is she needs it about an hour before the storm hits & then it lasts so loooong after the storm is over not to mention the fact that 75% of the time the stupid storm decides to miss us & she got drugged for nothing & ends up weaving around the house like a drunkard. No Thank You!
I ordered the Thundershirt & it's on it's way. I'd advise you to go to their website --- Google this: Thundershirt.com & check it out. There are also coupon codes online to save you the shipping at the very least. The official website gives a 45 day money back guarantee.
It was suggested to me by a friend who is a breeder & shows dogs. She saw it at a couple of the shows & said everyone standing around had very good things to say about it. Also; my dogs breeder was a vet tech for her entire career & she emailed her vet about it & her vet has great things to say about the Thundershirt (Tshirt for short).
When we get it we are to get her used to it before there is a need for it. Then when a storm comes she won't be freaked by the Tshirt. Watch my luck we won't have a storm for 45 days!
I will report back when we test it out!
PS: It is also reported to be good for all kinds of various anxiety related situations your dog has. Check out the website.
