Well, we are here to help answer your questions.
Are antler chews too hard?
To answer that question, it's important to go through the types of antler chews. First - let's talk about moose antler chews. Moose is the softest antler but since they are so soft, they do not last very long and puppies can chew through them faster. On the other side of the spectrum, deer antler chews are the hardest on the market. For this reason, we don't recommend deer antlers for puppies. Finally, we have elk antler chews. They are the perfect happy medium - they are tough enough to be long-lasting but not too tough for your puppy's teeth. All of the chews we offer are elk antler!
What kind of antler chew is best for puppies?
We recommend our split antler chews or our dipped antler chews.
The split antler chews come from either the base or tines of the elk antler, and then the antler is split into halves or quarters. The split chews are best because your puppy will have access to all of the yummy marrow.
The dipped antler chews are split antlers that are dipped in USA-sourced liver, adding extra yummy flavor for your puppy! They are also slightly softer because of the dipping process.
What age can puppies have antlers?
We recommend puppies 3 months and up can start chewing on antlers. But we do recommend limiting your puppy's chew time to less than an hour per chewing session, to help protect their growing teeth!
Are antler chews good for teething puppies?
Antler chews are a great chewing option for puppies, especially when they are teething. Chewing can help relieve the discomfort of their adult teeth coming through.
