Choose the best bed filling for your dog's needs. Orthopedic fillings include crushed eggshells and orthopedic foam, high-density memory foam and gel-filled beds.
An orthopedic bed conforms to the pressure points in the dog's body to help relieve joint pain and soreness. Select a filling based on your pet's weight and the severity of its pain. A thicker bed will give the most support to a larger, heavier dog.
Pick the outer covering. Numerous fabrics are available, from warm fleece to microfiber, chew-proof canvas or waterproof covers for incontinent dogs.
