As your dog gets older and less mobile it is more important than ever to ensure they are getting a good night’s sleep, naps or even just a rest and to do this you must ensure they have the best bed possible. Buying an orthopaedic dog bed is one of the best ways of caring for your dog as they are aging as they work differently to normal beds and it can help your dog in several ways.

Firstly, the support an orthopaedic raised dog bed gives your dog over a standard dog bed is exceptionally superior. The material wraps around your dogs body supporting each inch of their body and creating the ultimate comfortable experience for them. This will help aid any aching joints and bones which will increase the amount of high quality sleep your dog gets and needs.

Raised dog beds are also extremely hygienic which is great for dogs of all age but especially older dogs as you will want to keep them as healthy as possible and free of any infections that can be caused by dirty bedding. You can wipe these beds daily to ensure they are hygienic or get them outside and power wash them, they dry in seconds and can be placed back in their spot for your dog to use.

As there are no sides to these beds your dog won’t have to struggle to fit through the entrance, they can get onto of the bed whichever side they wish to and whichever way is easiest for them and can full stretch out on the beds without having to curl up  to fit in between the edges.

Temperature regulation is an important part of aging dogs as their joints are prone to problems and arthritis. Keep your dog warm but not hot enough to overheat is vitally important. Using a raised dog bed will help regulate heat without causing a damp patch unlike most standard dog beds which can cause problems for your dog if it has damp underneath and mould begins to grow. They also help to keep your dog cool during the hot summer months.

If you have a dog that is reaching old age, then dog health will be high on your priority list and getting a new comfortable should be one of the first things you do. If you require any further information or advice on dog beds then feel free to contact our team on 08451801010.
