Elbow Hygroma is a painful condition that comes when our dogs are constantly laying upon hard surfaces. Not only is sleeping or resting on a hard floor uncomfortable — it can cause our dogs to develop Elbow Hygroma. Elbow hygroma is a fluid filled small bulge usually occurring on their elbows — it looks like a thick callous.
What can you do to alleviate the discomfort of elbow hygroma? The first thing is to get them off the hard floor surface and onto a comfortable memory foam dog bed.
So many homes these days have hardwood or tile floors. Yes, they are lovely. . .but not from your dog’s perspective. Hard surfaces such as hardwood, tile, cement, even hard rug surfaces contribute to the common, yet painful, condition called Elbow Hygroma. Although a hygroma may occur anywhere that comes in contact with a hard surface, most commonly dogs get a hygroma on their elbows. We at Buddy Beds make a memory foam dog bed that can help.
Why a memory foam dog bed? Memory foam is the only material known to man that completely eliminates all painful pressure points. Buddy Beds Memory Foam Dog Beds work for 2 reasons.
- First our memory foam dog beds have a memory foam layer that molds to your dog’s exact shape. This memory foam layer is made of the finest quality memory foam available — 5 lb memory foam. And our layer of memory foam is not a skimpy 1 inch layer — it is a full 2 inches of memory foam.
- Secondly, our supporting layer keeps your dog up off the floor by supporting their weight. If you put a dog on a memory foam dog bed made only of memory foam — the longer they sleep or rest upon the dog bed. . .they will just keep sinking deeper and deeper into the bed until they finally hit the floor. If they have hit the floor, they have created painful pressure points. Then why invest in a memory foam dog bed? And. . .remember, our larger dogs have more weight upon the floor than our smaller dogs.
In order to prevent elbow hygroma, get your beloved Buddy up off the dark, drafty floor and onto a comfortable, supportive memory foam dog bed to prevent elbow hygroma.
Should your dog develop elbow hygroma, be sure to talk to your veterinarian about possible solutions.
