Pain Relief, Happy Dogs I was skeptical that a bed would bring relief to my arthritic dog. After several visits to the vet, and pain meds to control pain, we were greatly concerned about our dogs well being. We did have beds made from memory foam that we thought were thick and comfortable but we took a chance and ordered. The beds came and my husband and I hoped it would bring our dog some much needed relief. I was amazed to see after ONE NIGHT on this bed, she was not stiff in her back legs and she slept straight through the night. A few nights now and her mobility when getting up is 100% improved! So relieved to see it made such an enormous difference, I cannot even express what a relief it is for her and us! Our second dog, who has no health issues, runs to lay on her bed at every opportunity. She loves it! So glad we bought two. Thrilled with this purchase, well made, went together well. We bought the aluminum frame and the sheepskin covers. Highly recommend for dogs with arthritis! laylabean Canada Filed under: Arthritic Dogs

Best Christmas gifts we gave! Our eldest lab has arthritis, but he can easily get off and on the bed, and he sleeps so comfortably. It is wonderful to see him happy with his bed! Our youngest lab has quickly destroyed any stuffed bed we’ve bought, but she hasn’t even attempted a nibble at this bed. She loves it. The beds are warm, as they lift the dogs off the floor, and they have just enough flexibility to give a little with the dogs’ weight, but not too much. These beds are worth the money without a doubt.

Arthritis Beds For Dogs

For some anxious dogs, burrowing beds like the Cozy Cave (see above) are an excellent option; however, other dogs that suffer with anxiety may be afraid of the darkness or the concept of being hidden or covered. Another good option for anxious dogs is a nest bed or bolster dog bed that features raised sides without the covering over the top. Bolster beds are generally more expensive than simple padded beds, because most are better made and filled with more durable stuffing. Bolster beds also tend to be bulkier than other types of dog beds, so you need to make sure you have the space at home. We think your dog will love the additional support and feeling of having their own “couch”.
