Pet bed

QUESTION:

I'm looking to buy a bed for my 70 lb. German Shepherd. I was hoping to find something organic but my main concern is that it does not have anything toxic in it. I came across a bed that is made out of 100% natural latex rubber with a bamboo blend fabric cover. The company selling this is Precious Comfort Pet Beds. On their website, they describe the materials and the manufacturing process in detail.

The company obviously claims the bed is safe. Any thoughts? Better yet, has anyone purchased this bed? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

DEBRA'S ANSWER:

Erring on the side of caution, I would just point out that natural latex has a odor of it's own that some people (like me) don't tolerate, so it would be possible that pets may not tolerate it too.

I couldn't easily find the part of the website that describes how they make it.

I would choose a pet bed with an organic cotton cover and natural fiber fill.
