There are some breeds that are susceptible to these problems and you may wish to purchase an orthopedic dog bed to give your dog comfort before its too late. Orthopedic dog beds support the dogs joints and help alleviate the pain of Hip Dysplasia and Arthritis. There are a few different types of orthopedic dog beds, different fillings are used. Memory foam is made from durable, elastic foam and has the ability to form to the shape of the dog and mold itself to the dogs contours, then it restores to its original shape.
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.
A typical form factor for these beds is the donut style. They dont resemble donuts all that much, as the bottom is actually solid and cushiony. They do have a ringed edge, also cushiony, and this edge is what gives this style of designer dog beds its name. The ring part of the bed makes for an excellent headrest for your pet. Some dog beds carry the anthropomorphizing trend indicated by the prevalence of doggie sweaters and other designer doggie clothes to extremes. Designers create designer dog beds that resemble human furniture, like little sofas or lounge chairs.
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.
Durability also matters. Does your dog tend to chew? If so there are beds designed to resist damage from chewhappy mutts. Is your dog an indoor dog or an outdoor dog? Outdoor dogs need beds that fit in their dog houses, whereas for indoor dogs you will likely have more flexibility. Outdoor dog beds need to be able to endure weather and moisture, even if they will be located in dog houses.
