Dogs are amazing friends that know the right ways to cheer you up, and when they deal with pains or injuries this makes it that much harder to handle. Investing in an Orthopedic dog bed can help your furry friend avoid certain pains and even keep their joints youthful. Backed by sleep science the best orthopedic dog beds can keep your dog in their prime living a happy healthy lifestyle.



As dogs age certain problems tend to arise like Arthritis, Hip Dysplasia, and joint stiffness that can all lead to either severe pain or worse damage if not taken care of. Buddy Rest has some of the best orthopedic dog beds for these problems that come up as a dog gets older. These beds help in multiple ways, the first is that they help reduce the amount of pressure on certain spots that can hurt or even worsen joint pain in older dogs. These beds are also made to help your dog out of bed by utilizing springy material allowing the ease of transition, which can be one of the harder motions for dogs facing pains.



Some dogs face times in their life where they are hurt or have gone through surgery where they either shoulder or don't want to move due to potential pain or other reasons. Our dog beds are also some of the best orthopedic dog beds for injury recovery! Along with all the benefits i talked about with aging, our dog beds are also made with a stay clean fabric that will allow the prolonged time at rest without the worry of the beds becoming gross or even a health concern for your dogs skin. Some dog beds can leave heat spots or sores if not properly take care of but the fabric on our orthopedic dog beds are waterproof and antimicrobial allowing comfort and longevity when used by your furry friends.


One misconception that is thrown around a lot is that younger dogs and even middle aged dogs don't need proper sleep care, this is untrue and can lead to problems like arthritis and hip dysplasia that we see in older dogs all the time. By taking care of your dog's body at a younger age it can improve their health as they get older. Over time joints can take a beating while dogs sleep as they are known to sleep a majority of their day away due to not being able to reach the REM stages of slumber. If they have a proper orthopedic bed for all these naps their joints will thank you greatly down the road.

Finding a Proper Orthopedic Dog Bed

Many sites have what they claim to be orthopedic dog beds when in all reality they are nothing more than a foam insert that is not the best when talking about the top dog beds. Orthopedic beds are able to take pressure away from targeted points that can lead to pains. Make sure to check your dogs bed to make sure it is the best quality. Along with this do some research to make sure it is backed by the company. These beds can also get expensive and can turn you away but often times with price comes quality, our beds for example are made with the best materials and are even given return policy that can ensure you love it.
