Dog Bed - Draper with Holofiber

There was a little squib in the March/April AKC Family Dog magazine about the Draper Senior Bed. It is made with holofiber in the fabric, which supposedly helps promote oxygen flow, which can relieve stiffness and soreness. Here is the bed -- http://drapertherapies.com/canine/in...hk=1&Itemid=26.

I am considering this bed for my 7 year old golden retriever, but I don't know whether to think this a good product or a total scam. Has anyone had any experience with any holofiber products?

Hi Diane,
I can not speak to this bed specifically--but I did buy Vinnie(my sheltie)a temperpedic mattress bed for his bum leg. He has trouble getting up and down or out of the way quickly,and I think this has really helped him. He loves it. This one looks much nicer then what I bought Vinnie,but his is about 2-3"thick.It helps fit to his body. I was thinking about replacing it with a much thicker one I saw in the PetEdge catalog. It is 4-5"thick.

I hope it works. I kept trying new beds for my arthritic dane. It's so hard to watch them be uncomfortable...

He wouldn't try anything new would just cry and cry, loved his flattened old bed, so I tried to sneak new beds inside the cover...it only worked once.

Hope you find something wonderful. And, man, do they have to totally make you take out a loan to pay for these big dog beds?!
