“There is not a standard height, softness, bed fill material, etc. that needs to be met in order for dog beds to be labeled as orthopedic,” says Tara Klimovitz, DVM, CCRT, with Perry Hall Animal Hospital in Baltimore. “When I tell families that their dog needs an orthopedic bed, I am referring to one that is memory foam or similar fiber fill to relieve the trauma to pressure points while the dog lays down so that no part of their musculoskeletal body feels the hard floor beneath them.”

Therapeutic foam, also known as orthopedic foam or memory foam, is made of polyurethane. Therapeutic foam mattresses are available in different thicknesses. When your dog lies on this bed, the foam will shape itself around him. Therapeutic foam supports body weight and relieves pressure. It can be beneficial for your senior, whose skin and joints are more sensitive and prone to injury. The thick foam will keep your companion warm and cozy.
