Q: Are Antlers safe for dogs?
A: Deer antlers make a long lasting, tasty and completely natural chew for your dog. They are hard enough to withstand the most enthusiastic of chewers and are unlikely to splinter and leave sharp edges but as with any natural product you should never leave your dog unsupervised to prevent accidents. Be especially cautious if your dog has particularly powerful jaws as your dogs’ teeth can break if they bite too hard.
Q: Are Antlers sustainable?
A: Because of the way deer antlers grow they naturally shed each year, meaning they are a highly renewable resource, excellent for the eco-minded dog owner looking to be kinder on our planet.
Q: Are Antlers suitable for Puppies?
A: For puppies, Antlers are suitable as chew from around twelve weeks of age. Chewing helps with the transition from milk teeth to permanent dentition, as the new teeth can erupt better and pain is relieved. Especially our Split Deer Antlers are a perfect chew for puppies or senior dogs.
Q: Are Antlers easy to digest?
A: It takes time for your dog to reduce the antler in size and only small pieces are worn away and ingested but since antlers naturally contain calcium, zinc, iron and potassium, all of which have various nutritional benefits for your dog they are digestible.
