Reducing your pets toxic load is 1 of the top 2 recommendations for preventing pet cancer. In a 2008 EWG report, it stated that dogs and cats test results showed they had 48 of 70 industrial chemicals tested and many of their levels tested higher than found in humans! One example is the cat’s test results showed 23 x’s higher in flame retardants. Flame retardants are commonly found in your furniture and mattresses which I why I wrote the non-toxic mattress blog.

In this blog, I will help you find pet beds that contain the least amount of chemicals, yet provide the support and durability you are looking for in a dog bed or cat bed.*Visit my mattress blog for Certification definitions of GOTS and GOLS.

Non-toxic Orthopedic Bolster Dog Bed

Non-Toxic Dog Bed 3 yr warranty

Non-Toxic Dog Bed made with 4″ of CertiPUR foam, waterproof liner, and 3 yr. warranty.

Rated top orthopedic dog bed by one website, this pet bed may be ideal for your senior dog, cat or dog with arthritis. You can buy this CertiPUR dog bed in 2 versions, One is a rectangular bed with no bolster and the second is a dog bed with a bolster (dog bed with back and sides, pictured here).

I am excited that this bed allows you to completely remove all the material and wash only the cover! Some pet beds do not have removable covers and if they do, you may be only able to pull out the bottom layer but not the bolster layer.
