Why Memory Foam for Orthopedic Dog Beds?

There Really are Differences in the Quality of Memory Foams!
What does this mean?

Memory foam is graded by density. All foam is defined by a series of numbers that reflect the weight and compression ratios of a square foot of foam. Most common in the industry for testing purposes, is a piece of foam 4" X 12" X 12 feet square. Precision equipment is used in determining these ratios. (click for more)

 

Then Why Do Other Memory Foam Dog Beds Cost Less Than Buddy Beds Memory Foam Dog Beds?

There are a number of reasons.

Did you know that some memory foam manufacturers can take the scrap or defective memory foam and re-grind the memory foam? This reground memory foam is a ridiculously inexpensive, cut rate memory foam that some dog bed manufacturers use to keep the price so low.

But just as in all things when you cut corners, this memory foam does not last. Over time is begins to crumble and disintegrate. They may 'guarantee' their dog beds - we guarantee you will need to use that guarantee. Yet, more importantly, during the time your dog is using this inferior memory foam dog bed -- they are not receiving the support and comfort they need (and deserve) had you had put them a quality grade memory foam dog bed.

Here are some other ways:

This is interesting quote from an article on how memory foam manufacturers can cut corners:

"Now a word of caution. When you are researching memory foam, you need to be careful what foam you buy. In my research into memory foam suppliers, I was horrified at the different insider stories I heard, such as manufacturers putting inexpensive fillers (like sand, etc.) into foam to save money, rather than using the more expensive materials used in making true memory foam."

"I also was cautioned about manufacturers who unload bad pours of foam on unsuspecting customers in order to recoup their costs in pouring this foam." . . and . . ."And, like all things, if the price seems too good, it may well be an indication that something isn't right and the foam may not be up to the advertised specifications."

Don't be Fooled by Other 'Orthopedic' Dog Beds
That Do Not Use True Memory Foam!

Happy Dog on Memory Foam Dog Bed

Orthopedic dog beds are HOT right now -- everyone calls their dog bed 'orthopedic'. But is it truly orthopedic? Memory foam is the only material know to man that completely eliminates ALL painful pressure points.

These materials are NOT memory foam and do not provide the orthopedic qualities of real slow recovery visco-elastic memory foam:

  • Shredded memory foam!!!
  • High memory fiber fill
  • Egg crate foam
  • Convoluted foam
  • Medical grade hospital foam
  • 'High density' foam (what is that?)
  • Foam chips
  • Recycled fiber
  • Batting
  • Cedar
  • Polyester fiber

 

It is Important to Confirm the Memory Foam in Your Orthopedic Dog Bed is CERTIFIED Non-Toxic!

Buddy Beds Orthopedic Memory Foam Dog Beds uses a CERTIFIED safe, non-toxic memory foam, unlike many of our "warehouse" and "discount" imitators - that is how they keep the price so low. Buddy Beds memory foam is certified NOT to contain harmful chemicals or to 'offgas' harmful gases.

Buddy Beds uses a safe, non-toxic memory foam which is a more expensive memory foam. (Read more about our factory in the section below). Our memory foam is certified non-toxic. If you have a question if the memory foam being used is non-toxic -- ask for the certification of the memory foam. Many are claiming their memory foam to be non-toxic - but it needs to be certified. Ask specifically who is certifying the memory foam. It needs to be certified by a reputable, recognizable, governmental authority. Anyone can claim their memory foam is non-toxic -- but it needs to be certified non-toxic. PERIOD.

In this difficult economy, we are see lots of large corporations, who specialties are other things, get into the 'dog bed business' because they know we love our dogs and will spend money to give them the quality of life they deserve -- regardless of the economy. It is well known that the pet products business is considered 'recession proof', and for that reason and could be a lucrative venture. Sadly, there is not the concern for quality but the desire for profitabilty -- and we are seeing many of the 'wholesale' or 'discount' dog bed manufacturers cut corners.

Ask these 'wholesale' dog bed companies how long they have been making memory foam dog beds. . .and, do they make other memory foam products than dog beds? If so, do they use the same memory foam in all their products?

Here is interesting quote from an article on how memory foam manufacturers can cut corners: "I also was cautioned about manufacturers who unload bad pours of foam on unsuspecting customers in order to recoup their costs in pouring this foam." . . and . . ."And, like all things, if the price seems too good, it may well be an indication that something isn't right and the foam may not be up to the advertised specifications."

Why is Supporting Foam Necessary?

Why do we use supporting foam under the memory foam? If we just used memory foam alone, the longer your dog is on the bed -- the deeper he/she would sink into the memory foam -- ultimately hitting the floor creating a pressure point. This is known as "bottoming out".

The supporting foam prevents your Buddy from dropping down to the floor. Not all memory foam dog beds take this expensive, but critical and essential, step. Make sure your memory foam dog bed has support foam to prevent harmful bottoming out.

We know that you are investing in an expensive pet bed and we want it to last. Buddy Beds Orthopedic Memory Foam Dog Beds are different, and better. . . and yes, worth the price. Finally, a dog bed that lasts for years.

And we would do anything for our Buddy's comfort!

Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten. Buddy Beds strives to construct the premier quality orthopedic dog bed on the market- not the cheapest!

That is why Buddy Beds are the ultimate quality memory foam dog bed.
