So you’ve decided it’s time to buy a new orthopedic bed for your dog. Before you start browsing the internet or go to pet stores and become overwhelmed with color and pattern choices, remember that while having a bed that matches the furniture and décor is nice, don’t forget the main reason you’re getting a bed in the first place, to keep Fido comfortable and healthy. Instead of focusing on the superficial, pay careful attention to what really matters in the long run, the kind of memory foam in the bed.

Unfortunately, many companies claim to offer "orthopedic" dog beds made of high-quality memory foam; however, the sad truth is the vast majority are not.

Memory foam is the only material that completely alleviates all pressure points and offers correct support. Most pet beds on the market today are made of cheap products like egg crate corrugated foam. Other beds use the same foam used in shipping and claim they help support your animal. These materials ARE NOT ORTHOPEDIC and do not relieve your dog’s pressure points or pain.

 To provide 100% measurable pressure relief a bed must be made with open cell visco elastic memory foam. If another company does not tell you what kind of memory foam they use, you better believe it is not real memory foam and will not help your animal. The good news is BuddyRest’s world class dog beds use high quality memory foam (the same found in high end human mattresses) bonded to supporting foam. High density support foam allows the dog to sink in to a certain point and no further. Beds that do not have supporting foam bonded underneath visco quality memory foam do not relieve pressure and are actually detrimental to the long term health of your dog. On all other dog beds your furry friend’s weight is supported on their joints, even while lying down.

BuddyRest’s memory foam dog beds use real visco elastic memory foam to conform to your animal’s body and redistribute their weight evenly across the bed. Our memory foam dog beds provide a pain free haven for dogs with canine arthritis (osteoarthritis), hip dysplasia and other joint problems. Our beds are also widely used by veterinarians for post-op surgery recovery and can be very beneficial for dogs recovering from injuries such as ACL tears.Our dog beds also remove pressure from the body which allows nutrient rich blood flow back to areas, promoting healing and faster recovery.
Our veterinarian recommended dog beds are made of high quality BuddyRest True Cool® memory foam. Our luxury open cell memory foam is extremely durable, and doesn’t break down over time. We use high quality 4.5lb density foam which is the same type of foam found in high end human mattresses.

Regular memory foam gets hot and is not a place your dog will want to lay very long. Not our beds! Our orthopedic beds use gel infusion technology to provide a climate managed sleep for your animal.

Dogs are members of our families. So it matters that foam we use has been tested by independent,
accredited testing laboratories and approved by the CertiPUR-US® program for content, emissions, and durability.

Our CertiPUR-US® approved foam is:

  • -Made without ozone depleters
  • -Made without PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP (“Tris”) flame retardants
  • -Made without mercury, lead and other heavy metals
  • -Made without formaldehyde
  • -Made without phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission



Here at BuddyRest we never stop innovating. By staying on the cutting edge of foam and fabric technology, we bring sleep science to pets! We were the first company to bring memory foam orthopedic beds utilizing the power of Crypton fabric.

 

We also were the first to bring gel infused foam to the market in 2012. Over the years there have been many attempts to imitate our beds. No matter how hard they try, our relentless innovation and American engineering always keep us two steps ahead of the imitators. Accept no imitations. Others may be able to create a similar looking product, but they cannot duplicate our quality or match our innovation. Learn More
