Back ailments are an increasing problem as we grow older, and as a result, the market for comfort inducing pillows, mattresses and cushions designed to relieve back stress and provide soothing relief has boomed. Orthopedic mattresses and backrests are ideal for anyone suffering from back pain or simply desiring a comforting rest.
It only makes sense that as we have come to recognize the need for back pain relief in ourselves, we extend that courtesy to our pets. Large dogs have a tendency to also experience common muscle and bone ailments as they grow older, and so many pet supply companies have sought to alleviate your pet’s pain and stress with the introduction of orthopedic dog beds.
