Elk, deer, or moose...what's the difference? - Paws & Co Dog Chews

Elk, deer, or moose...what's the difference?

There's a lot of antler chews on the market. Different sizes, styles, and even raw material.

Here's how you can tell the difference so that you can choose what's best for your furry friend.

Moose antler chews

Moose is the softest and has the highest marrow content of all antler chews. 
Most dogs like the taste of moose antler chews; however, since they are so soft they do not last very long. 
Moose antlers are cut into "slices" and are often flatter than other chews.

Deer antler chews

On the other side of the spectrum, deer antler chews are the hardest on the market. They have a tough exterior and a low amount of marrow. Though they are tough enough for aggressive chewers, but they are often too hard for some dogs.
Deer antler chews are often skinnier and generally smaller in size.

Elk antler chews

Elk antler chews are the perfect happy medium - they are tough enough to be long-lasting but not too tough for your dog's teeth. They have a good amount of marrow for your dog to enjoy, and are often the fan favorite.
Elk antler chews are thicker and generally bigger in size.

At paws & co, we use elk for our antler chews. We believe that it is the best option for your furry friend at home.
