Antler Dog Chew information:

All antler chews are cut from naturally shed elk and deer antlers.  There is no artificial ingredients or preservatives added.  All cuts have been sanded to remove any sharp edges.All antler chews come from wild and free-roaming deer and elk. No game farm antlers.

 Antler is a very strong material with a hard outside layer and a softer sponge-like center.  Dogs love the flavor of the antler and will try and chew the center out.With the strength and the hardness of antler, the chews don’t tend to splinter like bone and will last a very long time.  Antler is essentially dead bone with a water content of 40-50% and a mineral content of approximately 20% calcium, 10% phosphorus.

 The amazing antler cycle starts in the late winter or early spring after the previous years antlers have been shed.  The antlers start growing with a rich supply of blood and minerals through the pedicles on the top of the animal’s head.  The antler is covered with a soft skin called velvet during the growth period.  The growth period lasts from 90 to 150 days with most of the hardening or mineralization occurring within the last 1/3 of the period.  Bulls and bucks then rub their antlers on trees and shrubs to shed the velvet.  By mid to late winter the pedicle begins to develop again and the dead antlers are shed.

Like everything else, all dogs and antlers may not be the same.  Most dogs love the antler chews and will be very happy with them.  Some may be too aggressive in trying to chew them up so customers should monitor how the dog deals with them.  If the chew should ever become small enough to be a choking hazard it should be taken away from them.
