If you have ever tried lying on an uncomfortable mattress, you would definitely be familiar with the problems it can cause.
Even just one night on a poor quality bed can cause an aching back, stiff neck, and overall discomfort. Beyond the discomfort, a poor mattress can cause joint discomfort, back aches and the loss of a good night’s sleep. Furthermore, it can also cause a great deal of stress and anxiety.
A lot of pet owners do not realize that many dogs suffer this same discomfort everyday. This can be avoid if more thought was put into the kind of dog beds they provide for their pup..
This is where an orthopedic dog mattress plays an important role.
What makes a dog bed orthopedic?
An orthopedic dog mattress is specifically designed to provide extra support for your dog’s bones and joints, most especially around the hips and elbows area, which tends to carry the most pressure.
They are made with an orthopedic foam density of 4.5lbs. This density makes the bed supportive enough so that your canine cannot feel the floor. This ensures a comfortable and therapeutic rest all throughout the day and night time. The material is a memory and support foam that molds to your dog’s natural curves and prevents friction and stiffness.
To compare, many mass-produced dog beds are filled with cedar chips, cotton filling, polyester filling, or a mix of that. This is generally fine for smaller dogs that do not need the extra support. However, these mass-produced beds are not built for long-term use as the filling can sometimes separate or settle in, leading to your dogs coming into contact with the hard floor.
Our Bully Bed orthopedic dog beds are designed to be free of harmful and other potential dangerous chemicals found in many mass-produced beds.. They are made of CertiPUR - US certified, safe memory foam. This foam is free of PBDEs, TDCPP, or TCEP flame-retardants, mercury, lead, heavy metals, formaldehyde, phthalates, and CFC’s.
Not only is your dog comfortable, but they are 100% safe and healthy as well.
What are the benefits of using an orthopedic dog mattress?
Now that you know what the beds are made of, let’s talk about why these beds are important. The many benefits your dog can enjoy from being given an orthopedic dog mattress are:
- It soothes the painful effects of hip dysplasia and/ or arthritis
- It reduces inflammation through extra padding
- It lessens pain from muscular problems
- It takes pressure off the joints
- It acts as an extra cushion for skinny dogs
- It promotes deep and restful sleep

In addition to the list above, our Infrared Orthopedic Dog Bed has multiple benefits of its own, namely:
- It helps with regaining energy levels
- It helps restore healthy blood circulation
- It enhances tissue oxygen levels
- It hastens recovery from bone and tissue injuries
The Infrared Orthopedic Dog Bed is the first and only dog bed with an FDA medical device certification. It works in such a way that the ion advanced ceramic-coated fibers take the naturally emitted far infrared ray (FIR) emissions and reflect them back to your dog’s skin.
This process then dilates your dog’s blood vessels, which promotes healthy blood circulation, a good flow of oxygen, while also promoting healing.
