While I have not seen this in your photos, do your dogs only have beds on the floor or trampoline beds as well? The reason I ask is a man I met outside work who also has a shepherd was told by the surgeon (for a cruciate injury with the same surgery as Quynne) that trampoline beds even very taut ones are not recommended for dogs especially dogs that alert like shepherds. I was told the same thing by Quynne's physio but it didn't register as she no longer had one.

This is because when they get up in a hurry the way they push off the bed, positions their legs in such a way that injury is more likely to occur - this is what happened to his dog. By this same reasoning, I imagine that dogs with elbow or hip problems would also put pressure on these joints when trying to get up using these beds more than floor beds. I've known plenty of dogs with these beds with no problems but it is worth being aware of this issue.

hugging to you and gentle massages to Cooper.

Oh wow thank you Alison hugging That is really interesting, I thought you were going to say that trampoline beds were better. I do have one that Molly had as a puppy. She ate the fabric so I just have the frame.

So here they just have 3 single mattresses on the floor and then some cheapie dog beds also on the floor. I have thought about getting some memory foam ones but then think well surely the mattresses would be ok.

Thank you for thinking of my boy hugging
