Does your dog sleep on a cheap bed, or worse still, just on a mat on the floor? Younger dogs might be able to take that, but for many older dogs, this can cause unnecessary pain. Sure, good beds are expensive, but they’re worth the investment.
Here are 4 reasons why!
A senior dog will spend around 80% of their time relaxing and lying down. If all that time is spent on the hard floor or on a flat and uncomfortable mattress, it is likely to cause joint pain. The extra cushioning can work wonders for aches and pains!
If your dog has arthritis – which one in five adult dogs have – a good-quality bed can prevent painful excessive pain. It can serve as some relief for the inflammation that your dog has to deal with. Orthopedic beds are especially helpful in this respect.
Big dogs can develop elbow calluses that crack and dry, becoming painful and uncomfortable over time. A nice, soft bed can reduce the risks of these calluses developing thanks to the cushioning.
Let’s put it this way – don’t you think your dog deserves to be comfortable? A high-quality bed will definitely make them happy as they live out their golden years!
