The gentle pressure of a weighted blanket can have a calming effect by releasing serotonin.
Consult your vet before using a weighted blanket to ensure your pet's safety based on health status.
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.
Introduce slowly and don't force it if your pet seems distressed by the blanket. Follow their comfort level.
The blanket should be no more than 10% of your pet's body weight to avoid orthopedic strain.
Do not leave pets unattended when blanketed. Ensure they don't get tangled or trapped.
