Many who have not given there dog Deer Antler Dog Chews often have questions about them. This Questions & Answers about Deer Antler Dog Chews section will give those who do give there dog antler chews already some interesting information about these wonderful dog chews.
I thought dogs like bones, why should my dog enjoy a deer antler chew?This is a common question. Why a dog would even be interested in deer antler dog chews? The answer is quite simple. Deer antlers are an external bone. Your dog is a natural forager for bones. Why not let your dog get exactly what they already want.
In addition to the antler chews being bone, they are very delicious to dogs.
Why are there different sizes of Deer Antler Dog Chews?
Dogs that are the size of a Great Dane, which is a large breed dog can fit nearly anything in his mouth. However a small poodle or Chihuahua will have a hard time fitting that same item in its mouth for chewing.
Regarding the same example, a chew that would be a perfect size for a small dog such as poodles or Chihuahuas would be a tooth pick for many large breed dogs like Great Danes and large German Shepherds. So picking a size that your dog would love is made according to your dogs size.
Why do you say choosing the larger size of antler chew is the best solution if unsure of your dogs size?
A full grown large breed dog would not be happy with a chew that is 4-6 inches, its just to small. While many small to medium size dogs can still enjoy a large size chew.
Another reason is for safety. A large dog may be able to swallow any small sized chew, which is true of all types of chews. This is why when in doubt of the size to choose, its safer to choose the larger size.
Are these real deer antler chews?
Yes, these are absolutely 100% real antlers shed by deer. Our antler chews are of real North American deer antlers. They are clean and contain no added chemicals or chemical processing.
Why not just sell whole antlers as dog chews?
There are a number of reasons for this.
The largest reason being safety. A deer's antlers serve a number of purposes to them before they are shed. One of the reasons is self defense and attack. When male deer challenge each other, they challenge each other in a battle with their antlers. This can even result in one of the deer dying from puncture wounds received from the battle.
That is why we reduce the antler down to a straight or curved shape
chew. There are no shape tips to scratch, pierce or poke you or your dog. This is safer for everyone. Your dog will thank you for making
it so easy and enjoyable to chew on delicious deer antlers.
