How to Care for your Thick Foam Pad For Twill Covers: Unzip and fully remove cover. For best results, wash cover in cold or lukewarm water. Use regular detergent. Tumble dry on low heat or line dry (recommended for darker colors).
Benefits of Foam: Solid foam beds and pads are comfortable for all dogs, but are especially recommended for large breeds and older canines, which often develop calluses over their elbows or hocks. These problems can be prevented with the use of foam.
While any dog will enjoy the comfort of orthopedic foam or "dome-style" beds and pads, they are especially recommended for dogs that are older, larger, have arthritis, hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, calluses, or any bone or joint problem. Dogs can get "bed sores" too, so dogs who are recovering from an illness or surgery and are going to spend a lot of time laying down would also benefit from orthopedic padding.
There are various styles of orthopedic beds and pads on the market. Look at the features before you buy. Beds and pads should have:
A washable cover with a heavy-duty zipper
Medical-grade solid orthopedic foam (looks like an egg carton)
A firmness which will make it easier for your pet to stand up after laying down
Remember to place the beds, pads and crates away from drafts and colder areas, which may make your pet uncomfortable.
