antler chews for dogs

FAQs

Do we sell whole antlers for art/craft purposes?

Unfortunately not. For storage purposes we don’t keep whole antlers. They are cut to size as soon as we collect them. 

Choosing antler chews – which is best for my dog?

Fallow straps have more easily accessed nutrients & marrowey centre but they probably wont last as long as antler chews. These are suitable for pups, older dogs or softer chewers.

For an added boost of goodness – check out our flavoured fallow straps which have been soaked in bone broth and dehydrated for an even more nutritious chew.

Whole chews are suitable for dogs that love to chew. They’re available in small, medium & gig-antler sizes.

Chewy brutes come from the toughest part of the antler and include the burr (the bit that attaches the antler to the deer’s skull). These are suitable for super chewers that make short work of other toys or chews.

How long will my antler chews last?

Antler chews will last much longer than regular rawhide chews or bones. In many cases they will last weeks or months. They’re like a long lasting, slow release nutrient hit for your dog.

Will my dog like them?

Most dogs go absolutely nuts for antler!

However, sometimes it might take them a while to figure out exactly how delicious they are (though this has been quite rare in our experience). If your dog seems a little indifferent, try soaking them in broth and offering it to your dog again – that should do the trick and they’ll become completely addicted!

Are antlers good for my dog’s teeth?

Antlers provide hours of chewing & gnawing and are therefore excellent for keeping your dogs teeth & gums healthy. Antlers are also a natural source of calcium, phosphorous and other minerals which support dental health.

There have been reports of dogs breaking teeth on antlers (not with ours… phew) so we suggest that all hard-core chewers are supervised and taught to gnaw on the antler rather than bite down on them. Alternatively, we have fallow straps which contain all the goodness of antlers but they are softer, with the nutrients more readily available which makes them suitable for older dogs or those with sensitive teeth.
