STOP THROWING THE PET BEDS (AND MONEY $$$) AWAY!!
Our now 12 yr. old senior Lab-Mix (Godiva) was diagnosed with hip dysplasia as a 9 month old pup. She developed urinary incontinence (involuntary urination) at age 3 and osteoarthritis shortly after that. The osteoarthritis condition started to get more severe to the point she could not squat to ground level to relieve herself. You could see the difficulty she was having merely walking around. We started confronting the possibility of having to put her down. A ray of hope came through when we brought her in to her lifelong vet. He suggested treatment that included shots and other meds and to have her lay and sleep more in a supportive bed and less in hard floor. For the next several years we bought many, many dog beds since urine impregnated the foam and was almost impossible to clean thoroughly (particularly the egg crate type) and odor being a problem, out with the garbage they went. Reality is most pet beds in the market are mass produced in China, India or elsewhere using low quality (usually shredded) foam. These are more of a pillow than they are beds, they "pancake out" or flatten more often than not and pets end up laying in hard floor. Some claim to be “waterproof” but they are just flimsily covered with nylon sheeting which lets liquids and urine get to and ruin the foam filling.
Trying to solve the problem we came up with the idea of building a totally waterproof and orthopedic mattress that urine wouldn’t get to and at the same time provide her with robust orthopedic support and comfort to the hip and joints. After a lot of research and experimenting with different kinds of products and materials we finally came up with the prototype that lived up to our requirements. We did it, and after five years, Godiva is still using that bed today and we’ve saved a ton of money! Not to mention her vet was amazed on how much she had improved the osteoarthritis...
