Vetbed was originally developed for use in veterinary clinics, but it is now widely used by dog breeders and pet lovers alike! This material makes great whelping pads, cage liners, pet beds, kennel pads, and upholstery covers, the uses are endless! It is knitted from a durable, chew-resistant yarn; this material is also one of the densest materials available at 1300 grams/m2. With a pile length of over 1¼" means your pet will stay high and dry! Made from 100% polyester, the vet bed is hygienic, non-irritant, and non-allergenic. You will not find anything this soft, comfortable and durable anywhere else! In addition to being soft and functional it can be rolled up for storage or transportation and will last for many years.
If your pet pushes the material around its cage, try the rubber-backed version.

VetBed can be easily cut to fit your exact needs! The material will not unravel after it has been cut. Buy a piece that fits your needs - or buy a roll and cut your own! Contact us for sizes not listed.
It is SUPER easy to clean! It is machine washable up to 194ºF. Quick drying, though it can be tumble-dried on a cool setting in the dryer. However, DO NOT use fabric softener as the build-up of fabric softener on the fleece blocks moisture from going through, and prevents the fleece from doing it's job. The fleece will not shrink - although sometimes the pile may mat or bunch a little.
