As your dog gets older, it‘s likely that he may develop Canine Arthritis or Hip Dysplasia, especially if he is overweight or a larger breed. You may not be aware of the different types of dog beds and what it is that your dog might require. An orthopedic dog bed can be used as a way to delay the onset of some common problems in older or overweight dogs, such as Hip Dyslpasia and Arthritis. There are some breeds that are susceptible to these problems and you may wish to purchase an orthopedic dog bed to give your dog comfort before it‘s too late. Orthopedic dog beds support the dog‘s joints and help alleviate the pain of Hip Dysplasia and Arthritis.
Divans are very common and are less expensive than other types of bed. They are made from wooden covered with material and the mattress sits on top. Many divans come with built in drawers which provide plenty of storage space. Sofa beds are sofas which can convert into beds when required. They are great for spare rooms as they can be kept as a sofa and then pulled down into a bed if you have guests. Adjustable beds are perfect for people who need to be able to change the height of the bed and the angle in order to relieve a bad back. They are also used for people who are bed bound as they can be raised in order for eating or watching TV. Hospital beds are adjustable beds but they can be purchased in more stylish designs for use in the home.
Heated dog beds keep a constant temperature and are designed to keep the temperature at a safe level at all times. Heated dog beds have controls that give you several setting choices. Some more expensive brands are thermostatically controlled thereby keeping a consistent temperature, varying only by a degree or two. Heated orthopedic dog beds are great for older dogs or dogs with Arthritis or Hip Dysplasia providing warmth in the colder months, the orthopedic dog beds are made from memory foam and the warmth from a heated dog bed can loosen the muscles and make them more comfortable. You can also get heated mats for outside use, pillow beds with an internal heater and oval beds for smaller breeds. There is also the thermo-wave microwavable dog bed warmer that is placed in the microwave and then into your dog‘s bed and will stay warm up to twelve hours.
There are a few different types of orthopedic dog beds, different fillings are used. Memory foam is made from durable, elastic foam and has the ability to form to the shape of the dog and mold itself to the dog‘s contours, then it restores to its original shape. You can also get gel-filled mattresses although the memory foam is better as it conforms to the body. Most orthopedic dog beds are constructed from a wooden frame with the memory foam mattress inserted. Orthopedic Dog Beds are lower to the ground which reduces the injuries sustained from jumping up and down from a bed or couch. Because the memory foam is light weight, the whole bed is reasonably easy to move around as it is not too heavy.
