What Is An Orthopedic Dog Bed?
What is an orthopedic dog bed ? The word orthopedic (or orthopaedic) means to manipulate the musculoskeletal system positively.
The word orthopedic can be attached to a product which aims to positively improve or manage a conditions which can impair an organism’s muscles and skeletal systems, In this specific case, it is applied to dog beds.
Orthopedic Dog Bed
An orthopedic dog bed is a bed which has been made in a specific shape or using specific materials which gently improves and alleviates your dogs overall posture by easing the pressure of the spine and joints as they rest.
The specialist beds work by helping dogs be able to sleep in a supportive position which doesn’t aggravate the spine or joints. The bed helps your dog ‘float’ on the bed rather than having their weight push down which makes them sleep in an uncomfortable position.
By having a bed which gives greater support it can allow your dog to relax and not use their muscles to keep them in position. The key differences between orthopedic beds and regular beds is usually found in the foam or cushion on the bed.
High quality orthopedic dog beds typically utilise solid memory foam which adapts to their weight to evenly distribute it and create a feeling of weightlessness.
ALL dogs can benefit, orthopedic dog beds are probably the most superior beds on the market because their sole purpose is to create a supporting sleep area. They adapt to any dog to support their body so they can relax their muscles and ease aches and pains.
However, there are certain dogs who would benefit the most from these kinds of beds and they are dogs with musculoskeletal problems such as hip dysplasia, arthritis, spinal anomalies, stiffness and elderly dogs with aching joints.
Dogs with these kinds of conditions can get some temporary relief as the bed takes the pressure off the joints so they can fully relax. They won’t be healed but it will help them get a better night’s sleep.
Dogs don’t just use beds to sleep during the night, they can use them all day long to rest. If you buy one of these dog beds then you’re giving your dog somewhere they can always go to if they’re having a bad day with their joints or back.
On top of that, your dog can sleep for longer which will help them feel less tired and more likely to move around which greatly helps with delaying the effect of certain conditions.
