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.
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.
This is a necessity in dealing both with dirt and with keeping your dogs bed free of fleas. You also want the material to be heavy enough to withstand a little chewing and clawing, especially if the bed is for a puppy. Durability is another thing to pay attention to. Some dog beds feature wooden supports or frames, and these beds may last longer than those that are completely made out of cloth. However, you want to make sure the padding in these beds is sufficient and that the wooden frame wont poke through or be uncomfortable.
Dog beds are a luxury for some dogs and a necessity for other dogs. The neat thing about dog beds is that they come in so many varieties that you can find one to fit any dog, and size, any décor or any location. The key to finding a good dog bed for your dog is understanding what is out there. Does your dog needs a dog bed that is elevated off of the floor, does your dog need a dog be that is extremely soft or possibly a bit firm? These are the types of questions you should be asking yourself before going shopping for a dog bed.
Heated orthopedic dog beds are great for older dogs or dogs with Arthritis or Hip Dysplasia providing warmth in the colder months, the orthopedic dog beds are made from memory foam and the warmth from a heated dog bed can loosen the muscles and make them more comfortable.
