You can also get gelfilled mattresses although the memory foam is better as it conforms to the body. Most orthopedic dog beds are constructed from a wooden frame with the memory foam mattress inserted. Orthopedic Dog Beds are lower to the ground which reduces the injuries sustained from jumping up and down from a bed or couch. Because the memory foam is light weight, the whole bed is reasonably easy to move around as it is not too heavy. If you have a large dog, its best if they have a large dog bed of their own.
Filler for dog beds is typically solid foam or stuffing. Poly foam is typically used to make stuffing for dog beds. Look for beds with high loft stuffing, as they will be less likely to get squashed or otherwise lose their shape and fluffiness. Stuffing is more suitable for a small dog than a large one. Solid foam beds are a better choice for larger dogs, and healthy older dogs. For a dog with serious back or hip problems, you should look into orthopedic foam dog beds. Be aware of the firmness or density of the foam.
There are many reasons your dog may benefit from a heated bed, besides just living in a colder climate. Perhaps your dog suffers from medical conditions due to age or illness. A heated orthopedic bed is ideal for older dogs with arthritis or joint issues and can even increase their mobility. Dogs recovering from recent surgery or in a distressed state can benefit from use of a heated bed. Puppies recently weaned and removed from the comfort and warmth of their mother do well transitioning with the help of a heated bed.
The cover also needs to be of a durable material to keep any clawing or biting in check. Waterproof dog beds are also available, they have a tough polyester cover which will keep out moisture much the same as your outdoor furniture. After a bath, getting home from the beach after a swim or getting stuck in the rain during a walk, youll be thankful for having a waterproof dog bed. We all want the best for our dogs, we give them the best food, toys and veterinary care but sometimes neglect the basics. A good dog bed is a necessity and may even prolong your best friends life.
Some people pamper their pets, where others wouldnt consider that their dog would have the need for a bed. However, even if you are not inclined to pamper your dog, dog beds can improve your dogs quality of life in many ways.
