Orthopaedic dog bed
Just like people, dogs can suffer from joint problems like arthritis. An orthopaedic dog bed can provide additional support and comfort when your pet stretches out.
Which dogs need an orthopaedic bed?
Older dogs are more prone to joint problems such as arthritis and hip joint problems. Apart from older dogs, those that are constantly active such as farm dogs and sports dogs, could also benefit from sleeping in an orthopaedic bed. The same is true for pets that have just undergone surgery and are looking at an extended recovery period. It is also not uncommon for those with puppies to use an orthopaedic dog bed to prevent problems related to muscles and joints from developing.
Choosing the right orthopaedic bed for your dog
There are a number of factors to consider to ensure that you choose the right orthopaedic dog bed for your pooch. One of them is size. You want one that is big enough to comfortably accommodate your furry friend when he is fully stretched out. You also want one that will give them enough support in relation to their weight.
Another thing to look for is a dog bed with sufficient support. A good number of orthopaedic dog beds are made of foam. This is because it adheres itself to the dog's shape which helps to soothe painful points. A foam core helps your pet to sleep better as they won't be tossing and turning to find a comfortable sleeping position.
Memory foam is called like it is because it adjusts to your pet's body shape to form a snug nest that it snuggles into. Besides memory foam, there is also egg crate foam. This foam adjusts to keep your pet warm when the weather is cold and keep your pet cool during hot summer days. Orthopaedic foam does both because it has two types of foam which provide additional support and comfort.
