The Value Of Orthopedic Dog BedsThey’re a thing, and they’re worth the cost to protect your dog’s joints not just in old age, but also, right from puppyhood.
I discovered the power of proper bedding when my dog developed hygromas (fluid-filled sacs) on his elbows from too much lying on hard surfaces. The treatment for hygromas ranges from daily poultices, braces and bandages to fine-needle aspiration.
Then, I got an orthopedic dog bed and hey presto, the hygromas vanished within a month.
The secret to the orthopedic dog bed is its memory foam and multiple layers. The quality is streets ahead of the bean bag–like stuffing that’s usually inside even high-end dog beds. Don’t wait for something to go wrong to offer your dog the best possible bed. Our pups spend a majority of each day sleeping. It’s worth making sure they’re well supported.
