Our pets are a part of our family, and they deserve the best quality products available. When you buy a mattress for your pet pooch, don’t just grab the first one you see. Instead, take the time to do a bit of research, and remember to look for these four things when it comes to buying an orthopedic dog bed or crate mat.
- Choose a mattress with no added chemicals. When you’re shopping for a dog bed, you should ask the manufacturer if their mattresses include flame retardant chemicals, since these are known carcinogens. You should also avoid covers made of PVC, vinyl or other toxic chemicals, as these can cause hormonal disruptions and even lead to cancer in your pets.
- When considering latex, look for the seal of 100% Natural Latex (rubber) composition. Unlike blended latex, Natural Latex has no petroleum, or volatile organic compounds, and it is naturally resistant to mold, mildew and dust mites.
- Avoid scented mattresses. These products often incorporate toxic chemicals to produce the pleasant smells, which isn’t worth risking the health of your pet.
- Look for mattresses that do not use glue. Glue can emit volatile organic compounds that have the potential to harm your pet. If you absolutely cannot avoid glue, look for a mattress that uses a water-based glue instead.
It’s never been easier to shop online to find the 100% natural and organic dog beds and mattresses that you need to keep your pets happy and healthy.
