I had to throw out the mattress to our dog's bed. So I used packing peanuts with a freshly laundered cover to replace it with. Works fine!

Did you make a removable cover so that you can wash it when it gets soiled?
Sounds like a great idea, but please check the cover frequently for tears or holes! (Better still, use shredded paper or wood chips.) My cat almost choked to death on a styrofoam peanut! Fortunately, I was at home when it happened and was able to rush him to the vet who dislodged it from his throat. I have never even brought those peanuts in the house since then.
Please be very careful with them - a tragic accident can happen in an instant.
