Are There Chemical Toxins in Your Pet’s Bed?

Have you ever wondered what your pet’s bed is made out of? This is not a common thought for most people who are picking out a new bed for their dog or cat. However, as a pet parent, it’s something you should be aware of.

Is Your Pet’s Bed Safe?

If your pet’s bed isn’t very high-quality, it might not be safe for them to use. Many low-quality pet beds are actually infused with toxic chemicals in the material fibers for coating, durability, or stain resistance. Some even have fire retardants.

When your pet lays on a bed with these chemicals day after day, they are breathing in toxic off-gases that can lead to serious health effects over time. These effects are detrimental to your pet’s longevity and overall quality of life.

How to Ensure Your Pet’s Bed is Safe

When you’re shopping around for a new bed for your pet, make sure to do your research! Not only do you want something that’s going to be comfortable for them, but that also won’t be harmful to them.

Make sure the bed you order is made of organic, natural fibers. For example, an organic latex bed is a good option. Just do a simple Google search and look for listings of organic pet beds to find a good quality material. The extra effort will be worth it for your peace of mind!

Keep those pets healthy and happy everyone!
