Buddy Beds Makes A Memory Foam Dog Bed That Can Help

How To Choose a Memory Foam Dog Bed It breaks our hearts to watch our beloved dogs suffer as they grow older. Just like us humans, dogs can suffer from arthritis, joint issues, and sore muscles. An estimated 10 million dogs in the United States have been diagnosed with arthritis, and 31 percent of dog owners say that bone and joint problems are an issue for their pets. Choosing an memory foam dog bed can help relieve the pain and tenderness.


Memory foam dog beds have improved the quality of life for dogs and cats with:

  • Hip or elbow dysplasia
  • Canine arthritis
  • Joint problems
  • Large breeds
  • Older dogs

Don't forget our younger Buddys too, memory foam provides excellent preventative care.


How To Choose a Memory Foam Dog Bed

Why is memory foam the best choice for an orthopedic dog bed? Memory foam eliminates the painful pressure points making it the perfect material for the ultimate orthopedic dog bed. The orthopedic memory foam in an memory foam dog bed reacts to your dog's body temperature and weight to conform exactly to every curve and angle. By reacting to a very specific range of temperatures, the memory foam becomes soft where you want it -- and firm where you need it. Supporting your dog's body in perfect alignment while eliminating painful pressure points which cut off circulation! Your dog makes 30% more body contact with a memory foam dog bed. Studies have shown memory foam reduces tossing and turning in humans by 90% -- why wouldn't it be the same in dogs? Memory foam will last longer and give better support than regular fill and give your dog twice the cushioning.


Pay special attention to the quality of memory foam since there are several grades available -- some are merely adequate while others are superb for their cushioning ability. Memory foam is graded by "pounds". The lowest quality memory foam is 3 lb memory foam. The highest quality memory foam available on the market today is 5 lb memory foam. The higher quality 5 lb. memory foam will give you the best support and last the longest. If a manufacturer is using best 5 lb memory foam that is available, you can be sure they will tell you. Remember the old saying "You get what you pay for".


Many dog beds claim to be 'memory foam' yet are not truly memory. Don't be fooled by 'orthopedic' dog beds that do not use true memory foam. These materials are NOT memory foam and do not provide the orthopedic qualities of real slow recovery visco-elastic memory foam:

  • High memory fiber fill
  • Convoluted foam
  • Egg crate foam
  • Medical grade hospital foam
  • High density foam
  • Foam chips
  • Shredded memory foam
  • Recycled fiber
  • Batting
  • Cedar
  • Polyester fiber

Hospitals and burn units for YEARS have used memory foam for us humans. For humans, pressure points create bed sores. So just think what those painful pressure points are doing to your beloved Buddy! It is like a push and shove match. In dog beds with traditional materials, the dog's hips, elbows, shoulders are pushing down on the dog bed, and the bed is shoving back equally as hard creating a pressure point that cuts off circulation. These pressure points build up, and that is why people and pets toss and turn to get away from the pressure build up. But even, with turning over, the pressure points soon build up again.
