I need to provide some way for my 55lb dog to get on and off my bed as vet has recommended he not jump on and off due to current neck/back sprain and perhaps to avoid future ones. He has slept on it for 8 years so I cannot just ban him from getting up on it plus not sure how I would sleep without him next to me :) Thanks for any input

We made our own (for getting in and out of the SUV) out of layers of 2" Styrofoam insulation board; Liquid Nails to hold the layers together and secure some carpet pieces to the tops of the steps. Very lightweight so you would want to add some Velcro or maybe a piece of heavy plywood on the bottom so they wouldn't slide around when dog used them. Cheap and easy. The Liquid Nails takes a couple days to dry fully tho.
