When you think of back problems, you probably think of predominantly human issues. This might sound surprising, but dogs are highly prone to back problems. One reason for this is that they have an unusual body shape that basically means their back has very little support in the middle and can therefore “sag.” Should they develop excessive weight around the midriff in particular, then they can be prone to curvature of the spine. Likewise, certain breeds of dogs are also more likely to experience back problems. One of the most common examples here is the Dachshund of course – which has a much longer spine and is therefore far more prone to injury in that area. Orthopedic dog beds in 2021 aim to solve this issue by providing your dog with somewhere to lie that will support their spine. This is very often going to be made from memory foam that will conform to the size and shape of your dog, and thereby help them to gain the support wherever their back needs it most.
Amber grew up having golden retrievers and will always have a special place in her heart for the breed. Her love for all things "dog" helped her become a general manager at a small kennel in Ohio for several years. Acquainting dogs and understanding both their needs and limitations have given her deep insights into the boarding process many dogs face in their lives. From consistent details to play time to food and bed time, Amber will always remember the small influences she was able to present to every pooch she cared for.
