We recommend organic pet beds because, most of pets are sleeping on toxic couches, toxic carpets, or chemical laden mattresses. All pets deserve protection from these chemicals and you deserve your rest. Their bodies and organs are so small, if they are exposed to chemical flame retardants, formaldehyde, found in most homes, they are more vulnerable to cancers. Chemical flame retardants, such as Chlorinated Tris is the most popular chemical flame retardant on the market. Tris has been banned in crib mattresses, yet it is in everything including most all mattresses. Protect your fur babies with an organic pet bed from Mountain Air Organic Beds. Especially the older ones who have health issues, give them the comfort and protection they need.
