So why does my dog need an orthopaedic bed?

When you start looking for a new dog bed for your four-legged friend you traditionally have found yourself in large chain pet stores sifting through their stock, only to find poor quality and overpriced beds. Well at least that has been our experience. When selecting a dog bed for your best mate, of any age, it is important to know that quality matters! When we talk to people, we have found that there is a common misconception that orthopaedic dog beds are only needed for older dogs. When in fact, all dogs can benefit from orthopaedic beds and its main ingredient: memory foam. Do these beds have benefits for older dogs? Absolutely YES! A good quality orthopaedic memory foam constructed dog bed can relieve stress and pressure on a dog’s aching joints, improve mobility, and provide incredible support for your dog’s body, regardless of their age. If you purchase a quality memory foam dog bed that is constructed properly it can add a lot of benefit for dogs of all ages, with the added benefit of longevity of your pet’s bed.

If you’ve been mattress shopping for yourself lately, you will find memory foam is everywhere. When you walk into a bedding store to purchase a mattress you won’t find a memory foam section designed just for older people. That’s because memory foam is for everyone! It’s in practically every mattress out there these days. Even the older style spring mattresses have layers of memory foam in the top layers. Why is this? Because quality memory foam is the best support possible for all bodies, human and dog alike. It is incredibly resilient and durable. Most importantly it is pressure relieving. This is why ALL George Barclay luxury dog beds are orthopaedic as they are constructed using the highest quality memory foam.

We hope that we’ve explained a little bit about orthopaedic dog beds, and it was helpful in selecting your next dog bed. If you would like more information on our dog beds or have a question for us then feel free to contact us at hello@creaturesofcomfort.com.au
