Is your dog elderly and finding it difficult to get comfortable when it lies down? He has always settled down quite happily outside your bedroom door, or in the hall or perhaps even by the side of your bed, and has always just had an old blanket to sleep on. Recently, however, he has been continuouslsy moving around and finding it dificult to settle down. Then it is time to think about buying an orthopaedic dog bed.
Dogs will sleep on anything, and generally will not complain. Newspapers (particularly those being read) are particularly popular and an old sweater is also favoured, however, as dogs get older, just like us, arthritis can begin to get hold, their legs start to ache as does their back, and at this stage, it is time to think of a more comfortable bed. Orthopaedic dog beds provide a really good solution.
Orthopaedic dog beds are usually made from memory foam, some use whole memory foam and some use crumbled foam, most have a waterproof breathable lining. This can be incredibly useful if your dog has a weak bladder or is given to drooling. If your dog has bad health then you should always take advice from your vetinary surgeon, and especially if he shows any signs of having back, leg or any other joint pain.
It is not only elderly dogs who appreciate orthopaedic dog beds; dogs who have recently had surgery will recover much faster if given a comfortable orthopaedic bed to lie on. Orthopaedic dog beds can aid recovery of joint sores where those have developed, and prevent development of them.
There is no reason why your dog should not sleep in the usual place it does, be it the kitchen, the hall, your bedroom or the landing, when it starts to become too uncomfortable sleeping on the floor. Give him an orthopaedic dog bed and see the difference it makes.
