Dog Beds: Consider Memory Foam for Your Dog Bed

Updated on March 27, 2009






If you have ever slept on a memory foam bed - you know the exceptional comfort and support this revolutionary sleep materials offers. Have you considered memory foam for your dog's bed?


Memory foam is an excellent choice for a dog bed whether your dog is a younger dog or an older dog. Don't thing of memory foam as the material of choice solely for orthopedic dog beds of our older dogs - take into account the preventative care it gives our younger dogs.


For a younger dog the less strain on their joints over time the healthier your dog will be as they age. Yes, your younger dog may not have any health issues right now, so a memory foam bed may simply be an extra comfortable, cozy, relaxing, restful bed that he/she will appreciate and thank you for. Just a tip, make sure your younger dog is past the chewing stage since memory foam is a more expensive foam --you don't want your memory foam dog bed destroyed by chewing.


As an older dog, they will appreciate the orthopedic benefits a memory foam dog bed will provide. Memory foam is the only material known to man that completely eliminates painful pressure points - making it ideal for dogs with arthritis, hip dysplasia, joint issues, or simply sore muscles.


As we humans get older we suffer from aches, pains, stiffness, and sore muscles. If you have personally slept on a memory foam bed you know the comfort and support memory foam provided your aging body. Our beloved dogs are no different - their bodies go through the same aging process. Only our dogs do it sooner since sadly the life span of our dogs is usually 10-15 years. Their aging process happens much faster with muscles and joint issues starting after only a few years. Memory foam will help you pet feel good again.


And don't forget our larger breed dogs. Larger dogs have more pressure on their joints and muscles. Arthritis, bone weakness, sore hips and joints are common with larger dogs as they age. Starting a larger dog on a memory foam dog bed as a younger dog will help put less stress on their joints and muscles over time.


While we all hope our dog will stay a puppy. . .all dogs age and much more quickly than us humans. Don't ignore this aging process and the extra support and comfort a memory foam dog bed would provide as their muscles and joints start to ache. A memory foam dog bed makes sense for the comfort and support it will give our beloved pets over their precious years with us
