How to choose the bed for dogs and cats?

There is a wide variety of beds on the market, depending on their materials, sizes and shapes, so it is sometimes difficult to choose the right one for your pet.

It is important to determine where the animal will sleep to choose a mattress or a bed, explains Verónica Wug, Marketing Manager at Banana-Pet. We must also take into account the size and weight of the pet, to acquire the bed in which it can sleep peacefully. You have to consider that there are dogs that like to chew on the beds, so they should have toys at their disposal to avoid damaging them, Wug recommends.

In this regard, Mónica Leiva, manager of PetClick GT, points out that beds for dogs and cats must be resistant to bites and scratches, which can quickly deteriorate those that are not of good quality. We must also take into account the manufacturing materials and not so much the aesthetic aspect, he adds.

It is essential to change the bed or mattress as soon as it is damaged, because if the animal ingests the stuffing, it can even cause death, says Leiva.
