Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Below are our frequently asked questions, if you have a question that is not listed here, please feel free to email

1. What is it made of?

Branded polyester (therefore always made to the same high specification), with a double woven backing covered in latex.

2. Is it non-slip?

No.  But we have non-slip.

3. Can it be put straight on the floor/concrete?

Yes, Vetbed can either be used inside a plastic oval bed or direct onto the floor/carpet or even outside in the kennel.

4. Is it washable?

Yes, completely machine washable, and quick drying. In fact, Vetbed(TM) is the only pet bedding available that can be cleaned and sterilized in an autoclave.

5. How long will it last?

It can last up to 10 years in normal domestic use.

6. Does it come in other colours?

Yes, it comes in many colors, see our Vetbed ® Original page for more details.

7. Is it the Original?

Yes, Petlife’s Vetbed has been going for well over 60 years now, and although there are a lot of look-a-likes on the market, no-one has yet matched it in quality (this is why it costs more than the cheaper look-a-likes on the market today). Vetbed Original is printed as such on the back.

8. What is the difference between this and the cheaper versions?

They may look very similar when they are new, but Vetbed™Original from Petlife stands the test of time. It is a superior construct. Check out it’s properties versus the competition on our technical page. It can be washed and washed and still looks good – users tell us it last and lasts.

9. Is it resistant to chewing?

No, if your dog’s going to chew, it will still chew this, although it is probably the strongest veterinary bedding because of the double woven backing covered in latex it’s very strong and durable.

10. Do you ship to the US?

Yes we do, and we have a handy Currency Converter that you can locate at the top of the site to see what the exchange is.

11. Are there special washing instructions?

Yes there are. CLICK HERE to see them.
