Given that a dog spends a good twelve hours a day sleeping, have you ever wondered whether an orthopedic dog bed would be a better choice for your large dog? It is well known that joint issues develop quickly in big dogs, often at a young age. So doesn’t it make sense to spend more upfront on a quality dog bed to help delay the onset of pain for your dog and heartache for yourself?
Dogs don’t live nearly as long as humans and worse yet, they age very fast. The good thing is that it is possible to take preventive measures to help them age gracefully. A top quality orthopedic dog bed is crucial in helping to eliminate pressure points which cut off circulation, preventing blood flow through the joint and leading to joint problems in the long run.
Orthopedic dog beds offer something for every dog: a young dog will get warmth, comfort and security, as well as support for his back and joints and insulation from drafty floors. An active, athletic dog will also find relief from sore muscles and joint issues.
Orthopedic dog beds are perfect for older dogs suffering from arthritis, hip dysplasia or degenerative bone disease, and will also help soothe all the pains and aches of sore joints and muscles.
Dogs with special needs resulting from injuries, disabilities or paralysis, or from cancer or some form of terminal illness, a good orthopedic bed will help eliminate pressure points, reducing tossing and turning for a more restful sleep.
But what makes a top quality orthopedic dog bed? Start with two inches of the finest non-toxic memory foam pad available, the same foam used to make high quality baby products, a long-memory foam to mold and contour your dog’s body. Permanently glue to it three inches of supporting foam for extra cushioning, and you have a bed that will never flatten or lump.
Add a protective flexible, breathable liner to protect the memory foam from liquids, stains and odors, forming an anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-static, anti-dust mite and hypoallergenic barrier.
And finally, add a machine-washable cover so you can easily keep the bed clean, and you have an investment that will last a lifetime. When you add up the number of poor quality beds you can purchase throughout your dog’s life plus future expenses for joint medication and vet bills, a top quality orthopedic dog bed makes for a wise investment. Isn’t your best buddy worth it?
