How Orthopedic Dog Beds Help your Dog’s Arthritis

Orthopedic Dog Beds for arthritis in dogs

Osteoarthritis affects one in five dogs in America and is commonly caused by fractures, inflammation or dietary deficiencies among other things. Comfortable orthopedic memory foam beds are available for people with arthritis so why wouldn’t you allow your dog the same level of comfort as they age? Here’s how orthopedic beds can help your dog’s arthritis.

Orthopedic Dog Beds and Your Arthritic Dog

Memory Foam Orthopedic Dog Beds Provide Support

Memory foam technology is ideal for dogs with arthritic conditions as it molds to your dog’s shape providing a supportive surface to sleep on. The technology is the same in dog beds as it is for people beds, making it ideal for older dogs with joint conditions. The weight is evenly distributed across the bed relieving the pressure on the joints and it ‘remembers’ your dog’s shape making it more comfortable.

Accessibility

Regular dog beds are difficult for an arthritic dog to get into and your dog may have to curl up to sleep. Arthritic dogs may have trouble curling up in this way but orthopedic beds allow them a wider, longer space to stretch out. Although there may be walls on either side, there is still enough room for your dog to move around and get in a position that is comfortable with their condition.

They Regulate Temperature

Orthopedic memory foam regulates temperature allowing your arthritic dog to stay warm. Arthritis research shows that heat treatment helps decrease joint pain associated with arthritis and the memory foam can help retain heat by molding to the shape of your dog’s body. The heat allows your dog’s muscles to relax and eases the inflammation associated with arthritis. There are also heated beds available for extra warmth.

Why not buy just a regular bed?  Memory foam beds are built with a liner which can be easily removed and washed. As the bed itself will no longer perform its function if washed, the liner protects it from the dirt your dog brings into your home, making it easier to clean than regular beds. Many typical ‘dog beds’ can also soak up household toxins which are harmful to dogs, these include some cleaning products which your dog may ingest if it chews the bed.

Investing in an orthopedic bed can ease your dog’s suffering and prevent other age-related problems from occurring. Keeping your dog comfortable is also likely to save you costly medical bills for complications associated with arthritis or other joint-related problems.
