Pet care has advanced a lot in recent years, in all areas, including dog beds. Some of the biggest and most practical advantages have come in memory foam. Once only available to the richer dog owners, memory foam dog beds have now come down a good deal in price. But what is it that makes memory foam dog beds such a terrific buy? It's so much more than the price.
What is memory foam?
Memory foam is visco-elastic polyurethane, which reacts with the heat of the dog's body to form itself to all the dog's curves. There is an assortment of grades in firmness and support available. It is soft and supple and easily molds but then it retains its shape, giving extra support that no other pet mattresses offer. The technology has been used for a while now in human mattresses and so now pet owners are able to give their pet the same benefits.
All shapes and sizes of dog beds can be made from memory foam, so no matter what the size of your dog and whatever position they like to sleep in, there is a memory foam dog bed obtainable to meet that need. Also, they can be found in a full range of cover designs.
- Memory foam dog beds are not only soft and comfortable; they offer all the support that any dog could need. No matter what the size, weight or age of your dog, memory foam technology allows for the total support of every joint and muscle.
- If your dog suffers from joint problems or arthritis, memory foam is a particularly good choice in particular for older dogs suffering from arthritis and other conditions.
- The memory foam takes the pressure off joints and muscles and so can be beneficial in reducing pain for your dog, even if your dog suffers from a condition like hip dysplasia. The spines of large dogs can be allowed to sag and distort when not supported by memory foam technology.
