    What About a Memory Foam Bed For Your Boston Terrier?

     

    As they grow older, dogs - especially larger ones - may begin to develop health problems that require you to make some changes in the care you give them. You may, for instance, decide to switch their food to a brand containing less fat. Vet check ups become bi-annual instead of once a year. Long romps with a Frisbee turn into slower, less playful walks.

    But what about your dog's bedding? Does that require a change, too? Read on to find out whether your dog might benefit from a memory foam dog bed.

    What Are Memory Foam Dog Beds?

    Memory foam is a special kind of foam that is sensitive to heat and pressure. First used in a human medical setting, it was valuable in relieving pressure from bedsores and easing tension in the back and legs. Memory foam beds are now commercially available to humans under several different names.

    Memory foam beds for dogs work very much like memory foam beds for humans. Basically, as a dog sinks into the foam, the foam adjusts itself to cradle the dog's body, relieving pressure on key points such as the back, hips, and knees that ordinary cushions might irritate.

    What Kind of Dog Needs a Memory Foam Bed?

    Dogs that require memory foam beds tend to be larger breeds like Dobermans, Dalmatians, Labradors, Great Danes, etc. They are often older dogs, and may carry diagnoses such as arthritis, hip dysplasia, back pain or recent surgical history. If your dog no longer seems comfortable in his regular bed, ask a vet if a memory foam dog bed might be appropriate.

    Where Can I Find a Memory Foam Dog Bed?

    Check your local pet store, or go online to PetSmart of Petco. Another place to check is the orthopedic dog beds section of www.bigdogbeds.com. A word of caution though; this site can get very pricey depending on the upgrades you select. For instance, a "huge" foam mattress with a waterproof cover will run you between $600 and $700.

    Another delightful site, far less expensive because it lacks the bells and whistles of pet specialty sites, is www.foambymail.com. Click on the "dog beds" section. No matter how large your dog, you won't spend more than $50 here.

    Just like our needs, your dog's needs will change as he ages. Why not buy him a memory foam dog bed so he can spend his remaining years with you in pampered comfort?
