orthopedic dog bed (8 replies)
My dog is very old and has been suffering arthritis pain. I checked online for reviews but unable to find from the huge collection. Could anyone suggest me on this?
Hi KM! Have you talked to her veterinarian at all, and have they recommended anything? With arthritis it really can be a day to day thing. I have a couple of clients dogs who have it and they have their good days and bad days. Some take medication, some don't. It really depends on the dog and the severity.
Ah I see! I don't have any recommendations per se, because I have never bought an orthopedic bed before. But whenever I need to buy something I am not overly familiar with, I always go to Amazon, the BBB, and other large retailers and look at their comments and/or reviews sections. Other consumers who have purchased the item will usually not hesitate to chime in if they have had issues with it.
I have checked on Amazon and found the Big Barker 7″ Pillow Top Orthopedic Dog Bed for Large and Extra Large Breed Dogs With Headrest (publisher's note: affiliate link). What do you think?
Thank you for your time!
I've never had one of these beds so I can't say from personal experience whether or not it's a workable bed, but I took a look on Amazon and the bed you're referring to is very highly reviewed by a lot of reviewers. If I were in your shoes I would consider purchasing it based on the strength of the positive reviews!
Dogs have different bodies than us, and our furry friends need more protection from a change of weather than us. For good health and comfort, you need to select a bed that has the right insulation properties.
Do you have any types of beds you suggest, Sharon?
I recently got my 14 year old girl rein an XL big Barker and she sleeps much better. She's going for walks everyday, she has more energy and just seems happier. I asked about the clearance beds, they get returned when a dog doesn't adjust to them, they still have the 10 year warranty and free returns. It helped putting a blanket she used on it from the beginning so it smelled like her right away and other times I switch it for a sheet to be cooler.
