Every spring deer and elk naturally shed or drop their old hard antlers and start growing new antlers. They then are collected to be cleaned to become dog chews. NO ANIMALS ARE EVER HARMED. The All-natural deer antlers contain a healthy source of calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, iron, zinc and manganese. All of these healthy ingredients in a compact, odorless and mess-free dog chew. And because the chews are all natural they contain no fat and dogs with pancreatitis, IBD, weight issues or other health problems can eat these chews with no problem. These will not easily break, chip or splinter like cooked or raw bones might. Your dogs chewing action and the digestive saliva found in a dogs mouth naturally slowly dissolves the antler into morsels for your dogs enjoyment. Because these chews are so hard there is no risk of splinters, pieces becoming impacted in the dogs bowel/intestines and requiring surgery to remove. They'll satisfying the dogs natural instinct to chew. Antler chewies are long lasting, safe, tasty and mess free. Because antlers are an all natural product, each chew is different. The antlers are only processed by a power-wash to clean and remove excess dirt and miscellaneous organic material with clean water from a mountain well. The antlers are then cut into manageable sizes and sliced in half. For sizing purposes, please refer to the photo to see how the size compares to the pocket knife. This listing is for 1 antler.
