Orthopedic dog beds - thoughts?

Hi! I hope this is the right place for this thread! Our Deedle is still a spry gal, but she is getting on in years (she's 14), and she has some arthritis in her hips. I am thinking about getting her an orthopedic dog bed (one with memory foam) and am curious about people's thoughts and experiences.

Thanks!

I imagine it would be very nice for an older dog. I would love a memory foam mattress for me!

What about memory foam on one of those heated pads that should make the hips better all warm. Soft so don't hurt hips and heat make it nice kind a extra.

the memory foam beds are pretty thick, i'm not sure the heat would go through from underneath. but they do make heated inserts for beds - that may work.

and by all means, i'm sure your "pup" would enjoy it. some are like memory foam chips, i'm not sure how that would be. BUT if you want a nice thick foam bed (not memory foam) and your dog isn't distructive, you can go to the craft/fabric/upholstry store and buy some really thick foam. I've done this for an insert in a bed
