Top 5 Beds for Dogs With Hip Dysplasia

How to Choose the Perfect Bed For Your Dog

  • Size of Bed – One of the first things you should consider is the size of the bed. You wouldn’t want a bed that’s too small for your dog. Be sure to consider the size of your dog and the corresponding size of the dog bed.
  • Design – In recent years, we’ve seen some new and unique dog bed designs that extend beyond the traditional style. For example, we’ve seen some new ones that resemble a cot.
  • Price – Something that often gets forgotten about is the price. Be sure to consider the overall price you want to spend because dog beds range in price greatly.
  • Fabric/Material Used – Some fabrics are more durable than others, be sure to consider what material will be best for your partner in crime. Additionally, some fabrics breathe better than others, and you may want to consider this if you’re living in a warm or cold area.
  • Amount of Cushioning – Some beds are super thin and others are super thick. Since your dog has dysplasia, you may want to opt for a dog bed that offers a generous amount of cushioning.
  • Type of Cushioning – Memory foam is a new substitute for traditional cotton stuffing. Consider what type of padding you’d like integrated inside your next dog bed.
  • Color – If you’re looking to have your dog’s bed match the room it will be in, you should consider the color of it.
