I hereby stand on my soapbox to tell the world that it works 95 percent of the time! I don’t feel it is a placebo effect because one of my converts says that her arthritic dog, who always slept on her bed and struggled to the floor each morning, literally bounded off after the second night of being “soaped.” You can’t tell me that the dog knew why there was a lump in the bed!
Perfect for and older or arthritic dog bed
We all like a nice comfy bed so why wouldn't your dog. Find a dog bed that has a nice cushion for your dog. This is particularly important for older dogs who may be suffering from arthritis or are just starting to get tired and weary. A good cushion will also provide insulation from harsh temperatures. If you dog sleeps outside the insulation will provide protection from cold or hot ground. I like a bed that has the filling stitched into place, like quilting, as this stops the filling from bunching up on one side and reducing the cushioning effect fro my dog.

A dog with arthritis can have a lot of trouble sleeping, but this problem can be significantly reduced depending on the bed. That's why a special dog bed tailored to arthritis and joint conditions can offer your pet a sounder night's sleep. The best dog bed
I've had my Kuranda Heavy Duty Dog bed for a couple of years now. It is as fabulous as the first day we set it up - unlike the other dog beds I purchased. Our arthritic 16 year old German Short-haired pointer sleeps on it throughout the night without needing to get up to adjust his aching bones.
Luv my pets
Alberta, CanadaThink about it: You wouldn’t want to sleep all night on a bean-bag chair, would you? You’d wake up pretty stiff, even if you are perfectly healthy. That’s why our orthopedic beds are meant for every dog, not just dogs with arthritis, hip dysplasia, and other joint problems. Lying on the floor can put pressure on your dog’s hips, shoulders, and elbows, and a traditional puffy bed does not do much to reduce that pressure. As you can see, the benefits are quite real, and your dog will surely appreciate them. For dogs suffering from hip dysplasia or arthritis in particular, a memory foam dog bed will greatly improve your friend’s quality of life.
