Orthopaedic or memory foam dog beds may cost more than the usual pet bed, but it is money well spent. Memory foam gives tremendous health benefits for any dog, not just an older pet.
Memory Foam Dog Beds, Orthopaedic Pet Bed Mattresses.
Your best friend’s joints take a pounding daily with chasing after balls, running and jumping and generally just being a dog. Quite often people do not notice their dog developing joint problems until they start slowing down, or finding it difficult to get up the stairs or jump into the car. Providing a supportive memory foam dog bed can help prolong joint health from the start. Larger dogs can be more prone to develop joint problems as they get older and there are also certain large breeds such as Newfoundlands, Rottweilers and Bernese Mountain Dogs who can develop breed specific joint diseases.
Memory Foam, Orthopaedic Dog Bed Benefits
All dogs can suffer muscular and skeletal ailments as they age, just like humans. Arthritis and hip dysplasia is very common in older pets. An orthopaedic foam bed will help relieve pressure on joints and give them a supportive and comfortable resting place.
Tests have found that memory foam is the only bed manufacturing product that can give maximum pressure relief for aching joints, muscle support and the highest comfort level for your pooch. It is also a really good bed to aid post- operative recovery.
Memory Foam Pet Bed Features
What to look for? A good orthopaedic memory foam bed needs to be constructed similar to a human mattress. It should ideally have at least 3 or 4 inches of high density foam. Memory foam beds can come in a variety of shapes. Take note of how your dog sleeps. If your fur-baby likes to stretch out and sleep on its side, a rectangle mattress type bed, may be the best shape. If they like to curl up and use the bed sides as cushions, a traditional round or oval nest shape may be more appropriate.
