I am new to D&D and I am looking to start. I would like to start a Druid(Sentinel) from Heroes of the Forgotten Kingdoms whose animal companion is a bear.

My Druid would dislike his animal companion getting hurt, so would it be possible to get armor for my bear?

There are a number of items that fit into a "Companion" item slot. You can see a listing of them by checking the online compendium, selecting Items and then in the drop down below selecting "Companions" and hitting "Filter". They start at L4 and my understanding is that they are designed for beast companions. This is not exactly armor, however there are items that do improve their defenses. Specifically, Companion's DefenderDDI.

Honestly if your Druid is concerned about getting his beast companion hurt he might want to consider a profession besides adventuring. It tends to be a dangerous line of work.

Macrame perhaps? Druids dig macrame. Or so I heard. –  Adriano Varoli Piazza Aug 9 '11 at 13:30
    
Thanks @F. Randall for the link and the specific item suggestion –  wax eagle Aug 9 '11 at 17:39
    
I find it curious that there is no mount or companion armor that isn't magic. –  GMNoob Aug 10 '11 at 11:23

@Adriano Macrame is horrible on pets. If I had a copper piece for every time a bear inadvertently hung itself or choked to death on beads.... –  user179700 Aug 10 '11 at 22:49
    
@GMNoob, in the case of a Sentinels animal companion, you have to assume that if the Armour wasn't magical, then it wouldn't be able to appear with it when the animal is summoned from the primal plane. –  Mark Booth Dec 8 '11 at 0:48

No, at the moment, it is not possible to get armour for you bear.

The Compendium search page can be used to find all items which can be used in a companion slot by selecting "items" in the Search: list box and "companion" in the Category: list box, before selecting Apply.

At the moment, this lists half a dozen items from Adventurers Vault, none of which are armours. As wax eagle's answer suggests, the closest thing to armour would be Companion's Defender, which provides a scaling bonus to all defences.

After seeing the comments here, I asked the What options are available for a Sentinel Druids Animal Companions item slot? which I was able to answer myself after hearing wax eagles answer.
