Q and A: Laminated Cotton Dog Mat?

Q: I am wondering if laminated cotton would do well for a dog bed? My daschund recently was diagnosed with Diabetes and is peeing all the time, even on his bed.

I am hoping I can use this material in a pretty pattern and sew up a cover for his bedding.

Thank you!

A:  I have so been there, but with a cat!!! It's so hard on both of you, isn't it? We did the same thing for our Willow Kitty and it helped a lot with clean up, you can just whip it clean. I can't guarantee that it won't hold the scent but it's better the the alternative.

Laminated cotton is BPA and PVC free and waterproof so this is a great fabric for families and pets.

If you make a cover and put in a zipper or snaps you can throw it in the washer. Washing changes the fabric a bit but it's not going to hurt it.  This way you could removed it if once it's beyond whipping clean.

All my best,

Can you tell me the fabric in the picture that is the orange with the blue floral? Thanks. I would love to purchase some of it.
