Dog anxiety is a modern day reality.
Symptoms can range from changes in behaviours, such as repetitive licking, hiding, diarrhoea, aggression, puddles on the floor, skin reactions, noise phobia, separation anxiety to name but a few, and none of which are desirable for the dog or the owner. When the dog is in this stressed state, the sympathetic nervous system and adrenal glands are under great pressure and the body is continuously in the ‘fight and flight’ mode. This state means the dog is unable to rellax; they are always on high alert and feeling like they are in danger. They lose perspective, and can feel depressed. Most cases just need support to reprogram the nervous system and a drug free solution to help relieve anxiety. The Calm Coat works through the well-researched principles of compression, giving a reassuring hug around the body and chest region. The coat must fit firmly to have an effect. This unique patented design is professionally made from merino wool, a perfect fibre with wonderful thermoregulatory properties enabling it to be able to be worn safely and comfortably for extended periods of time.
