If you don’t sleep on organic, toxin-free bedding, have you ever worried about the chemical-laden mattress and sheets you sleep on at night? And what about your pets? What’s in their bedding?
Five years ago, I realized I wanted non-toxic, organic bedding for myself and my furry family members as well. But I was in for a big surprise, because I couldn’t find non-toxic pet beds... anywhere!
I realized there was a huge need out there for an organic pet bed that I and other pet guardians could trust to keep our best friends safe. After all, our pets are a part of our family. We love them and want to protect them from the flame retardant chemicals and other potential toxins often found in non-organic bedding materials.
This revelation resulted in the Premium Pet Bed – what I recommend to give your pets a comfortable, safe place to rest and sleep.
And why is this so important? Well let me shed some light for you on the many reasons why pets need a toxin-free space...
The Many Dangers of Flame Retardant Chemicals
Just like human beds, pet beds are also sprayed with a very toxic group of chemicals called flame retardants.
Items sprayed with flame retardants are supposed to burn more slowly in the event of a fire. However, these chemicals don’t stay confined to the furniture they’re in. They continually off-gas, so you and your pets could be inhaling them on a daily basis.
One particular type of flame retardant chemical called polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) is particularly dangerous. Studies show PBDEs may contribute to health problems in people and pets.
Other flame-retardant chemicals include boric acid, a toxic respiratory irritant; antimony, a metal potentially more toxic than mercury; and formaldehyde, a well-known hazardous toxin.
Similar to human beds, if a pet bed is not marketed as organic and free of toxic flame retardants, you can assume that it has been treated with these chemicals. As I mentioned earlier, I found it extremely hard to find a pet bed that was not sprayed with toxins, and met my high standards -- which is why I’m excited to have finally found the one I’m introducing to you.
Nasty Indoor Air Pollution
Another way your pets greatly benefit from their own organic pet bed is having an option for a non-toxic sleeping surface within the house.
Most pets, especially cats, spend a large amount of time indoors and are therefore more negatively influenced by indoor air pollution from toxic chemicals in the home.
Flame retardants can be on everything from the carpet, to beds, to couches… all the places where your best friend likes to nap. There are also many other potentially dangerous chemicals on these surfaces.
That’s why it’s vital to give pets a non-toxic place where they can go to escape the overload of toxins in their environment.
This is especially important for older animals with health problems, younger pets that are still growing and developing, and pregnant females. These animals can be especially vulnerable to the effects of chemically-treated surfaces and would benefit greatly from pure, organic materials instead.
Why Cats Are More At-Risk from Toxins
Another thing to consider is that it’s extremely important to give cats a non-toxic sleeping surface.
This is because kitties are constantly grooming themselves and ingesting any toxic chemicals that have collected on their fur and skin. Studies show that many cats have much higher levels of flame retardant chemicals, namely PBDEs, in their blood. Ingestion of these toxins has been linked to possible serious health issues in cats.
So a non-toxic bed is not only important for dogs, but especially for cats as a way to give them a safe place to escape these dangerous toxins.
Safe, Organic Cotton and Silk Pet Bed
Since flame retardants are obviously a significant hazard to companion animals, I wanted to introduce an organic pet bed option that would be safer and healthier for them...
My Premium Pet Bed doesn’t need dangerous flame retardant chemicals... since it’s made with organic cotton and silk which are both naturally flame resistant materials.
When I thought about the type of bed I wanted for my own pets, I asked myself, what would I want to sleep on? What is best for my health? And then I took those qualities and applied them to a pet bed...
My Premium Pet Bed is:
- Completely safe and non-toxic
- Free from flame retardants and other chemicals
- Made of organic cotton, organic silk, and a non-toxic poly-microfiber fill
...not to mention the bed is incredibly comfortable. My pets love it!
A Durable Pet Bed
One question you might have is, “What if my pet tries to chew through this bed?”
As the guardian of two pit bulls who are very aggressive chewers, I can assure you my Premium Pet Bed has withstood all of their rough-play.
How is this possible, you ask?
Well, the bed is made with an outer organic cotton shell, an organic silk lining, and then a poly-microfiber fill. Both the organic cotton and the silk are very soft but extremely strong, resilient materials, making them very tough to break through. This creates two layers of heavy duty protection for animals that like to chew on their beds or drag them around the house.
This Bed Is Also Allergy-Free!
Another great thing about my Premium Pet Bed is that unlike the synthetic pet beds on the market, this one actually helps prevent allergies.
Both cats and dogs can suffer from allergies and develop “hot spots,” an irritating condition that leads to sore, red, irritated skin. My Premium Pet Bed can help prevent hot spots and allergies, since the organic materials help reduce overheating. Hot spots and other skin problems tend to develop in overly warm, moist environments. The Premium Pet Bed helps regulate body temperature to prevent overheating.
Another problem for both dogs and cats is dust mites, which can be found in carpeting, upholstery, mattresses, and bedding, and can cause annoying itching, scratching, and irritation for pets. Dust mites cannot survive in silk because it is uninhabitable for them, so your pet will be safe from these critters in the Premium Pet Bed.
Easy-to-Clean Outer Cover
My Premium Pet Bed has an outer cover that is mold-resistant and easily removed for washing.
Many pet beds are not washable, and if they are, it can be a real chore to get them truly clean, completely dry, and reshaped. For pets with allergies, it’s important to wash bedding regularly to help control skin irritation.
Regular washing of the outer cover will help keep the Premium Pet Bed fresh.
