Aaaarrrgghhh – we’re now taking orders!

Well this certainly feels like a nerve wracking time! After months of planning, and with the help of a website developer and many hours of research – we’re now ready to offer our beloved antlers for sale!

At the outset we have 4 sizes available.

  • Small Antlers
  • Medium Antlers
  • Large Antlers
  • Gig-Antlers (we reckon that’s a pretty cracking name!)

General consensus is that we will offer whole antlers at this point – but will be happy to offer split antlers in the future if that’s what people want. Just give us a holler and we’ll only be too happy to help!

I guess all that’s left to do now is start spreading the word and hope that all the people that assured us they would buy them will actually front up!

Our first orders will be shipped out on Wednesday, 25th of April – so if you’d like to try one of our ‘farm fresh’ antlers – dont hesitate to check out the shop page!

Imported dog treats have been poisoning Australian dogs

Recent claims by pet owners and vets that dogs and cats have been poisoned by contaminated, imported pet food has thrown the spotlight on the largely unregulated pet food industry. Vets and pet owners are calling for a government watchdog to oversee the pet food industry, claiming that at the moment the industry relies too much on self regulation.

Vets across the Australia have seen an increase in the number of dogs being diagnosed with kidney problems after eating certain imported jerky treats.

The dogs have shown a decreased appetite, increased thirst and increased need to urinate. Many of the affected dogs had been fed dried jerky type dog treats, specifically chicken or duck. While a cause is still unknown, all the treats were identified as originating from China.

The warning is very clear – make sure you read the label of any dog food treat you feed to your dog and avoid any treats imported from China. Furthermore, claims have been made that poisoning may occur from the high levels of irradiation which ALL pet food imports are subject to.

This potential toxicity alert is another reason to check to be sure that any meat products you give your pet are sourced in Australia.

And if your dog does start to drink more and stop eating as much, go to your vet at once: prompt treatment can be lifesaving.

Our antlers for dogs are about as natural as you can get. The antlers are collected from the paddocks, cut to size and then sent straight to your door. They’re so farm fresh, it’s likely there will still be traces of dirt and grass from our farm still evident on your antlers – and you cant get much more natural than that!

In addition, as our antlers receive NO sterilising, boiling or processing at all – they’re just the way nature intended – which makes them even┬ámore delicious & interesting for your dog.
