    Default Vetbed

    I want to buy Sally an original oval vetbed to go inside her plastic bed. Can anyone recommend a good UK retailer online? I have seen them on some websites but I'd rather buy from recommendation as I don't want a 'fake'. I've tried all kinds of beds inside her plastic bed including old pillows but they only last a few washes and they go all lumpy. I've heard Vetbeds last a long time and withstand washing. Does anyone also use Vetbeds for their Cavs?

    I use them, and they wash and dry very easily, I brought mine from Pets at home.

    I wouldn't use anything else personnally!! I bought a 10 metre roll around about 5 years back now, it's the chew resisitant one and am still using the cut down pieces from it now!! Just throw it in the washing machine and it comes up really nicely, it will clump together a bit but that's normal.

    You'll find out more here

    They even make the fleece's for nursing homes etc!!!

    I CANNOT feel the canvas backing no matter how hard I push my fingers through the fleece this means the fleece is really dense and thick, initially the canvas backing is pretty rigid when you wash it, but as time goes by it becomes more supple. Also, check out the colours you can get hold of!! Can't beat the stuff!!

    The profleece looks quite good. Is it similar to vetbed? I'll have to measure Sally's plastic bed it's a big one at 30" but will have to check exact dimensions. Don't think I'll need a roll just enough to use in her bed.

    Sally's bed is oval shaped and 30"x20". I'm just wondering Cathryn does this material bend easily? I'm thinking of getting the medium which will be too big 36"x24" but if it bends at least it will fold over the edges of the bed? Better than being too small

    I would advise cutting it to size, allowing a little extra for shrinkage, then wash it, this will soften the canvas backing which at first is rather stiff, once washed though it soon softens without losing any of the fleece's softness etc.

    Can't recommend this bedding enough in all honesty, my pups are delivered on it and they spend the rest of their lives here with me sleeping on it!! the more you wsh it, the better it will get, it really is chew resistant too, I have had many puppies try to chew on it with no success to ever dispute that claim!! (I have NO affiliation with this company, I'm just a VERY satisfied customer is all!)

    HTH???

    I bought the medium size so I'm looking forward to it arriving now. I will let you know what Sally thinks of it when it arrives.

    Am sure she will love it! When I got my 10 Metre roll we had it all unrolled in the lounge and every-one was lying on it and refusing to move it's so comfy!!

    I remember one year we had a lot of snow here and it was when one of the Championship Shows was on at the N.E.C, Ladies Kennel Association (LKA) which is held in December. Anyway, a lot of the traders couldn't get home, they were snowed in, and the Pupps Rep told me he slept in his van on the Car Park!

    "It was the most comfortable nights sleep I've had in ages" he told me, Guess you can't get a better recommendation than that eh??

    Do you not find that the fluff comes away quite easily?

    My dogs always had loads of fluff stuck to them!
