Larger breed dogs often suffer from arthritis long before it is known to anyone but your pup. They compensate by the way they walk, curl up and adjust to find a comfortable sleeping position. Choosing the right dog bed as your dog ages is really important. Choose the right size, design and material for your pet’s needs.
Choose an elevated pet bed frame with an orthopedic insert to give your pup a comfortable bed that is elevated from a cold floor. You choose the frame and pick the best mattress for your pup. For a complete selection of Furhaven Pet Cushions.
When choosing pet supplies for aging dogs and cats, you want to always choose washable options. You will find some pet beds are fully washable, while others have removable covers, liners and cushions. For larger dog breeds you may want to wash them at a local laundry mat with large capacity washers and dryers to ensure they are washed properly and you don’t damage your machines.

“No Dog Should Die Alone” was the attention-grabbing — and heart-stirring — headline of journalist Laura T. Coffey’s TODAY show website story about photographer Lori Fusaro’s work with senior shelter pets. While generally calm, easy, and already house-trained, these animals often represent the highest-risk population at shelters. With gorgeous, joyful photographs and sweet, funny, true tales of “old dogs learning new tricks,” Coffey and Fusaro show that adopting a senior can be even more rewarding than choosing a younger dog. They may be slower moving and a tad less exuberant than puppies, but these pooches prove that adopting a senior brings immeasurable joy, earnest devotion, and unconditional love.

As your dog, cat or house of pets begins to age, it may be time to make some changes to make life with pets and people calm and compassionate. Simple changes can dramatically make life easier for your pets and give you peace of mind.
