Top 5 Memory Foam & Orthopaedic Dog Beds
Dogs spend 80% of their time sleeping which can be between 12-14 hours per day, lucky things! So investing in a good quality, comfy and supportive dog bed is essential for their health and well being.
Memory foam dog beds are designed to mould to the shape of your dog’s body and then fill in the gaps where they don’t make direct contact. This evenly distributes their weight and helps support their joints which is why all orthopaedic dog beds are made from memory foam, because dogs with arthritis, need extra support.
Did you know that memory foam (or orthopaedic) dog beds are not just for older dogs who suffer from arthritis or joint problems? If you’ve ever gone bed shopping for yourself, you’ll have noticed that memory foam is everywhere, and for good reason - memory foam offers the best possible support. If your dog lives to be 10 years or older, they will almost certainly develop issues with their joints, just like humans do as we age. By introducing a supportive memory foam bed early on in your dog's life, it can help alleviate some of the joint issues that may occur later.
Also, if your dog is a skinny or lean breed (greyhound or chihuahua for example) with very little padding under their elbows and hips, they are likely to develop callouses or pressure sores. The supportive nature of a memory foam dog bed can help prevent these from forming by easing the pressure put on these exposed areas.
