Our dogs are part of our family, and it’s heartbreaking to watch them age, especially when they begin to show signs of joint distress in their senior years. Older dogs are prone to developing medical conditions like arthritis and dysplasia.
These health conditions affect their joint cartilage and limit their mobility. It’s especially noticeable during the cold winter months when the cold creeps into their bones. A heated bed provides warmth to their body and keeps the fluid in the joints mobile, reducing the pain of getting up out of bed and walking.
If you own a working breed, such as an Aussie or Husky, they may avoid a heated bed during the summertime, but relish sleeping on one in the winter.
