Although most humans think that recovering dogs need lots of fluffy pillows to lay on, what they really need most is a low profile bed with extra firm support. New Tripawds are often adjusting their position to be comfortable and can have a hard time turning around on traditional pillow-style beds.
Fluffy beds can also act as a sponge for post-op moisture, bugs and odors. Consider making your own dog bed, or review this selection of the best recommended dog beds for restful recovery after amputation surgery.
