We made cushions from a 1-inch-thick piece of foam covered with a quilted fabric sewn on all sides like a pillow. This rectangular cushion provides a soft surface for cats and small dogs when we place them on their backs to retrieve a urine sample (cystocentesis) or to visualize their underside. The best part: The cushion can be thrown into the wash between uses. It works great and this way the animal doesn't have to lie on a hard table.
