Just when we thought we had seen every pet product innovation out there, we are blown away by the CALMZ® Anxiety Relief System. The CALMZ® Anxiety Relief System is a new product to aid in relieving pet anxiety.
Your pet’s anxiety can be caused by storms, fireworks, loud noises, card rides and many other situations. Common symptoms of an anxious dog can be panting, drooling, vocalizing, chewing, inappropriate urination, hiding, pinned ears and other a-typical behaviors. As responsible pet parents, it’s upsetting to see our pets anxious or scared, and we try every way possible to console them and restore calm. That’s where the CALMZ® Anxiety Relief System comes in.
The Calmz® Anxiety Relief System for dogs consists of an adjustable vest that cradles a device over specific acupressure points on your dog’s spine. When the device is activated, the clinically proven NeuroSync™ Technology takes over. Your dog will hear and feel a therapeutic blending of classical music, tones and vibrations that soothes anxiety within minutes.
Turning on the Calmz® system activates peripheral sensory nerves that signal the spinal cord as well as the brain’s cortex and parietal lobe. The frontal lobe in turn activates the cerebellum, which controls sympathetic outputs, helping vasodilation and oxygenation, resulting in reduced stress. Additionally, auditory vibrational stimulation, delivered at specific frequencies, activates vestibular nerves and along to the cerebellum. This combination of stimulation aids in diminishing anxiety in dogs, allowing them to relax.
The video below explains how the CALMZ® Anxiety Relief System works as well as the common triggers of canine fear, anxiety and stress.
The new Petmate CALMZ® Anxiety Relief System for dogs combines high-tech innovation with acupressure in a revolutionary non-invasive, drug-free treatment that soothes anxiety.
We received an XL for our 83 pound Baylie. It’s fit was a little snug, but was not binding due to its elastic bands and soft, flexible material. Baylie gets a little nervous during inclement weather; not so much the thunder and lightning, but the wind.
All dogs react differently to stimuli so it’s imperative to acclimate your pet to the device. Baylie was a bit confused by the vibration when we first turned on the unit. By adjusting the settings and putting the vest on and taking it off for a period, she now accepts it without hesitation.
Here’s how it works:
- During stress events, dogs have decreased blood flow in the frontal cortex – the processing area of the brain.
- Stimulating blood flow improves neural firing and communication with the spine and the brain, thus relieving anxiety.
The system features:
- Eight preprogrammed treatment settings, consisting of vibration intensity, duration and repeat cycle variations
- One Comfort Fit Vest and one device
- No prescriptions, no drugs, no edibles, no refills or veterinarian visits required
- Comes in XS-XL to fit dogs of all sizes
- Requires 3 AAA batteries (not included)
- MSRP $129.00
