Is your dog getting older? Have you noticed that he has a harder time getting up after sleeping? Sleeping on the hard ground or an uncomfortable bed can actually make your dogs arthritis pain worse and make it harder for him to get around.
Dogs, like humans get weaker with age and lose muscle. And, like humans, their bones get weaker and thinner as well. On top of that, arthritic joints or an active day can make for a lot of discomfort, especially in the evening.
That is why it is so important for older dogs to have a comfortable rest area. Sleeping on the cold hard ground can only bring your dog more pain and discomfort.
Selecting the right bed will make a big difference in your dogs comfort level. An orthopedic bed is a must for an older dog. The Ortho Thermo-Bed has a layer of super comfy soft fleece that covers 3 inch convoluted orthopedic foam with a quick and easy removable heater. The bed also comes with dual thermostats for optimal temperature. On top of that, the cover is easily removed and is machine washable.
