Pet Anxiety Related Symptoms and Causes:
Barking, panting and licking are all normal canine behaviors. However, when they are displayed in excess or accompanied with pacing, whining, vomiting, destructive chewing / scratching, or aggressive outbursts, they may be symptomatic of a larger concern...like pet anxiety.
Sensitive or reactive pets may demonstrate similar anxiety related behaviors during times of separation, travel, thunderstorms, or fireworks.
How the Anxiety Wrap Works:
The Anxiety Wrap activates key pressure points where canines harbor stress, including in their neck and chest area, shoulders, midsection, and hind quarters. The wrap's patented design creates a continuous, full-body acupressure experience that helps to relieve and/or resolve the pet's stress and the resulting behaviors stemming from fear, anxiety, hyperactivity, insecurity, and shyness.
Designed to be lightweight and breathable, the Anxiety Wrap's custom made fabric features a four-way stretch that provides a snug fit that is as unique as the dog that wears it. It flexes easily and moves with your pet for a comforting hug-like sensation!
The patented acupressure leg straps differentiate the Anxiety Wrap from competitors and maximize the product's noteworthy top-to-tail calming effect. Made from wide-stretchy bands, the leg straps are easy to dress and never restrictive. Simply tuck the straps into the garment's interior pockets when you don't want or need them.
To ensure the best fit and proper use, the Anxiety Wrap comes in seven canine sizes and has adjustable features to tailor the final fit. Every element of the Anxiety Wrap was carefully considered by the designer, Susan Sharpe, a certified service and therapy trainer. When it debuted in 2001, it was the first of its kind and remains the superior choice among pet professionals.
Tufts University tested and deemed the product to be 89 percent effective in a clinical study, noting the Anxiety Wrap as a "safe and effective treatment for canine thunderstorm phobia".
In most cases, it is recommended that while your pet is wearing the Anxiety Wrap, you should refrain from interacting since over-stimulating your pet can decrease the effectiveness of the wrap or override the acupressure.
The wrap has a proven track record of success and helps to increase a dog's self-confidence, focus, animal-to-animal and animal-to-human socialization, bonding ability, relaxation, and balance. It can also be used to treat:
- Fear of fireworks or thunderstorms
- Separation Anxiety
- Constant Barking
- Unwanted Jumping
- Whining and Nervousness
- Destructive Chewing and Fear Biting
Can the Anxiety Wrap be left on all day?
-The Anxiety Wrap was designed to be comfortably worn for short or extended periods of time. For optimal results, and to prevent habituation, your pet should only wear it when needed.
Will my pet overheat when wearing the Anxiety Wrap?
-Unlike more restrictive wraps, the custom fabric comfortably, safely and effectively calms without causing the dog to overheat. The Anxiety Wrap can even be used as a cooling agent in warmer weather..just dampen the material before dressing your pet.
How should I clean the Anxiety Wrap?
- Simply wash the garment on delicate in cold water and hang to dry.
Will the Anxiety Wrap inhibit the use of a harness or collar?
-Not in the least. Dress your pet in the Anxiety Wrap first, then put on the harness or collar.
Unfortunately, my own experience with using the Anxiety Wrap on LadyBug was not successful. Actually, I have used every single thing I can think of to assist her...with the exception of drugs...and nothing has worked for her. She does not take pills well...so I try to console her the very best I can.
