Blankets Help Dogs and Cats With Anxiety? 

The gentle pressure of a weighted blanket can have a calming effect by releasing serotonin.

Potential Benefits

Consult your vet before using a weighted blanket to ensure your pet's safety based on health status.

Veterinary Guidance

Avoid use in warm temperatures or with pets prone to heat stroke like brachycephalic breeds.

 Risk of Overheating

Never use if the blanket constricts movement or prevents your pet from freely standing up.

Restricted Movement  

Introduce slowly and don't force it if your pet seems distressed by the blanket. Follow their comfort level.

Pet Preference  

 The blanket should be no more than 10% of your pet's body weight to avoid orthopedic strain.

Proper Weight  

Do not leave pets unattended when blanketed. Ensure they don't get tangled or trapped.

 Supervise Use
