Eco-friendly pet beds aren’t just great for the environment, they’re great for pet health as well!

Pets are family. And we want our family members to sleep on beds that are gentle on their skin.

I’ve been a dog owner my whole life. And many of my former dogs have had skin issues that, collectively, I’ve spent thousands of dollars trying to treat. What didn’t help any of the situations was the fact that they slept on synthetic dog beds—and I didn’t put two and two together until years later.

All pet beds are prone to dust mites, fleas and other allergens, but synthetic beds make the situation twice as intense.

Let’s compare a cheap synthetic bed to a bamboo fiber bed as an example. Did you know that bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial? Anti-bacterial means less germs hang around. And less germs mean a cleaner and healthier sleep environment for your pet.

That’s why you should consider an eco-friendly bed instead.

Environmentally friendly pet beds are made from fabric and material that’s natural and organic. Organic cotton, bamboo, wool and hemp are a few excellent examples to consider when shopping for a bed.

What makes an eco-friendly bed a better buy than the conventional version?

Natural and organic means that it’s nontoxic and free of pesticides, insecticides and other hazardous additives that your pet breathes in and rubs onto its skin.

Hence, if you have a dog with sensitive, itchy skin, this is all the more reason to make the switch. Many beds and bed covers that are produced from synthetic fibers, tend to be infused with chemicals such as flame retardants. And these chemicals act as allergens that trigger inflammation, hold on to germs, and also create odors.

Let’s take a look at some high-quality eco friendly pet beds, and begin the journey to improving your pet’s health.
