Every year across North America millions of male elk shed their antlers. Using antlers as dog chews for your canine companion offers many advantages over other dog chews. First, and most importantly, a dog's natural instinct is to search out and chew bones. Antler is bone, but unlike skeletal bones that primarily have a soft center, antler is solid bone thereby making it virtually impossible for your dog to break. Antler dog chews will not splinter, making them safer than bones as well as long lasting. Because it is bone, antler is naturally rich in calcium and minerals.
While antler dog chews have no detectable odor to us, they have an appealing scent to your dog's discerning nose. Deer, elk, and moose antlers have some minor variations in composition, but the main distinction is made by your dog. The scent for each species is distinct and you may find that your dog enjoys one variety over the others. The benefits to your dog are equal regardless of his antler preference.
