This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in January of 2020. If you are like most people, your pets are more than just friendly faces waiting to greet you at the door. They are a full-fledged member of your family, which means they deserve a safe, cozy place to sleep. We have selected a range of mats that offer various features, such as cooling, warming, and orthopedic support to help you choose the best bed for your furry friend. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

June 18, 2021:

We made two important changes to this wiki this round. One was upgrading to the Riogoo Heating Pad, which is perfect for young pets who have trouble generating enough body heat to stay warm on cold nights. Second, while the Casper Memory Foam remains one of the top plush beds on the market, we added the Furhaven ThermaNAP as our new #2 because of its durability, reputation, and range of available colors and sizes. It comes in two types; one's slightly padded, the other decently padded, and both offer impressive construction quality. None of our other recommendations have changed recently.

It does not matter if you have a dog, a cat, a rabbit, or even a bird, as a pet owner, you want the best for your animal. Critters of all sizes need safe and cozy sleeping quarters, and that is where this list comes in handy. Choosing the best pet mat does not have to be challenging, as long as you know what features are essential for your pet's comfort, as well as for upkeep.

You want to keep certain factors in mind, such as the size of the mat. Most usually come in a variety of sizes, so you can ensure you are selecting the size your pet needs. Another factor to keep in mind is the material and craftsmanship. You want something that is comfortable, but since this is an animal we are talking about, you want something that is durable and ready to stand up to scratching, digging, and flip-flopping around. How the bed is cleaned is another important detail. Many have removable covers for washing, and there are even some that you can toss in the washer as a whole.

Some mats, like the MidWest Deluxe, are made to use inside a crate or on its own. Others, such as the Petnf Heating Pad, provide your furry buddy extra warmth during the cold months, while the Green Pet Shop is the perfect cooling pad for hot days and nights. Where you live, what size and kind of pet you have, and features are all things to keep in mind as you choose the best pet mat.
