Mammoth Outlet’s Hypoallergenic Beds Provide Comfort
Similar to people, dogs can exhibit symptoms of allergies to certain substances within their environment. Commonly, canines can interact with the outdoors without it posing discomfort or harm to their health, but there are breeds more prone to skin irritations, respiratory or digestive issues as a result of allergies than others. These include Terriers, Setters, Retrievers, and flat-faced breeds such as Pugs, Bulldogs, Boston terriers, or mixed breeds with one of the above dominating their genetic makeup.
If you see your dog’s skin becoming itchy, red, moist or scabbed, if there is increased scratching, if your pup has itchy eyes or ears, if she sneezes, has suddenly begun snoring (likely due to an inflamed throat), if she is chewing on her paws, these are textbook signs of an allergy. Often in the springtime these can be caused by trees, grass, weed pollens, mold spores, dust, or other forms of dander. If your dog is exhibiting these symptoms only at specific points of the year, the cause is likely to be environmental.
The good news is that your dog’s allergies can be mitigated with a few smart choices. Keeping your dog’s indoor environment clean is a solid first step, but this can be difficult to sustain when they’re bringing outdoor allergens into the house, and you’re unable to pinpoint the root cause. Thankfully, Mammoth beds can help with keeping your dog’s resting place a spot where they can sleep and breathe easy.
All of our orthopedic dog beds are hypoallergenic — which means they actively keep allergens at bay. Our latex oblong bed (which comes in any breed-specific size all the way up to extra extra-large) is the top bed we’d recommend for sensitive dogs. Latex is very durable and has been proven in independent studies to be inherently antimicrobial. It inhibits the growth of mold, mildew, fungus and bacteria — and the latex oblong bed is also easily washable. It provides ideal comfort for dogs suffering all types of ailments and the large and extra large latex oblongs come with a 4″ mattress which can support even heavy breeds like retrievers.
The oblong dog bed also features our popular removable cover system for quick and simple laundering, and you can choose covers created from canvas or soft microvelvets. The bolster is further made from a high memory fiber fill providing optimal comfort and support.
For an allergic dog, this bed does not utilize plastic based polyurethane foams, safeguarding against sensitivities to synthetic materials. The latex rubber furthermore conforms dynamically to the natural contour of the body, cradling any aches or discomfort your dog may feel as a result of allergen exposure.
The season for allergies may be upon us but that doesn’t mean your dog has to be uncomfortable. Providing her with a hypoallergenic bed from Mammoth such a as our latex oblong will make the change of seasons much easier on her body, and it will also prevent toxins from festering and growing in her resting place. She’ll feel more energized when she’s not so distracted or congested, allowing you both the chance to better enjoy your time spent outdoors.
