Why Do Veterinarians Believe in Big Barker?

It can be very difficult to find the right bed for our dogs. They are a member of the family and we want to make sure they have the best. At Big Barker, we strive to make the most comfortable and supportive dog bed the industry has to offer. But don't take our word for it. We are proud to have the support of hundreds of vets from around the country. Check out what they have to say about the Big Barker Bed below:

"When Zeus, a 120 lb Shilo Shepherd, came to the Animal Therapy Center, he recently had surgery to repair a ruptured disc in his spine, and was suffering from bed sores on his elbow. See why Dr. Mayers immediately used a Big Barker bed as part of Zeus’ recovery process to heal his wounds and to protect his joints from further stress." Animal Therapy Center (Bethlehem, PA)

"I’ve been a veterinarian for 20 years, and I’ve never found a better bed or better product than the Big Barker… I have found this bed to be amazing. Not only is my own dog happy, but I can’t get him off this bed!" All Pets Veterinary Hospital
(Drexel Hill, PA)

"Many pet parents don’t realize that their dog’s bed has a tremendous impact on the dog’s quality of life. Thin, flimsy, flat beds cause pressure points that hurt tender joints making it hard to rest and harder to sleep soundly. Big Barker beds are specifically designed to eliminate pressure points and reduce pain, even in animals without any previously diagnosed joint issues." Victoria Park Animal Hospital (Ft. Lauderdale, FL)


Dr. Dana A. Vamvakias, DVM, CCRT, cVMA, CAC

"The pain experienced by big dogs with joint conditions is made worse by sleeping on unsupportive surfaces. The Big Barker has shown to reduce joint pain by eliminating the pressure points between the dog and the floor below, which makes for a happier and less painful life." Vanguard Veterinary Hospital (West End, NC)


These vets believe have seen the impact a true orthopedic bed can have on the healthy and happiness of a dog. Our innovative three-layer foam design ensures that dogs of all sizes are supported and eliminates pain on pressure points.
