Specifically, you’ll want a dog bed that provides orthopedic support for your dog’s hips, spine, and skeletal system. If your dog is a bigger dog then having this support with the bed is extra important.
Fiber-fill pillows are great also and they have the bounce back factor so the shape doesn’t get distorted and the quality of support isn’t compromised. You should get a polypropylene pillow liner because they become de-contaminated when you wash them. To get the best orthopedic support you need a high memory foam and high-density pillow.
