Do you have a dog with a bad habit of chewing anything and everything they can get ahold of? If so, you’re not alone! Dogs have an innate drive to chew, and they aren’t afraid to focus that energy on your favorite shoes or the leg of a chair if there isn’t a suitable chew toy available. It’s a struggle that many dog owners face, but it can be overcome. Many products on the market will offer your dog a safe and suitable option for gnawing. Unfortunately, as we learn more about our dogs and how their bodies work, we have learned that many of the most popular solutions, like rawhide bones, can pose a health risk for our pups. A natural option that you may not have considered is to purchase an antler chew. Animals like elk and deer naturally shed their antlers. In the wild, these antlers are often a source of nutrition for a variety of animals, including mice, squirrels, porcupines, foxes, opossums, and more. Shed antlers have a durable exterior with softer marrow inside. This marrow is not only a tasty treat for your dog, but it’s also packed with vitamins and minerals. Interested in trying an antler for your pup but unsure where to start? We have put together a list of the best antlers for dogs as well as the answers to a few of the most common questions about dogs and antlers.
