Does Your Pet Need a Dog Orthopedic Bed?
As dogs get older, they may develop painful joints that can make sleeping on the hard, cold ground uncomfortable. Just as you appreciate a comfortable bed, a dog orthopedic bed can help your furry friend sleep and relax more comfortably, reducing aches and pains.
A dog orthopedic bed is great for very active dogs, older dogs, or dogs that are ill or recovering from surgery. Thinner dogs with more prominent bones are prone to developing painful pressure spots and will find a dog orthopedic bed beneficial. A supportive dog orthopedic bed can also prevent your dog from developing calluses on the elbows, hips or other bony protuberances.
Just what is a dog orthopedic bed? Typically, a dog orthopedic bed is a mattress-style bed designed to provide orthopedic support for your dog, and an even distribution of pressure. Dog orthopedic beds offer different amounts of support, depending upon the type. Dog orthopedic beds may be made with memory foam, egg-crate foam, or solid foam of varying degrees of firmness, or even box springs.
The mattress-shape of a dog orthopedic bed is great for dogs that prefer to sleep sprawled out as it provides plenty of room to stretch out. Dog orthopedic beds are usually very durable, and most have a removable cover that can be washed when necessary. While dog orthopedic beds come in a variety of sizes, this type of bed is most commonly used for larger dogs.
If your dog could benefit from a supportive bed to protect his joints against the hard floor, then a dog orthopedic bed is a great choice. Although older dogs find dog orthopedic beds especially helpful, a young active dog will also appreciate the extra joint support of a dog orthopedic bed.
