    DefaultAntler chews

    Anyone else give antlers as a bone to gnaw on? I was always reluctant to give Diesel any type of rock hard bone for fear of dental injuries, but caved & gave him a marrow bone not too long ago. He vomited & had horrible diarrhea, the vet said it was possible the marrow was too rich for him - he does have a sensitive stomach.

    Last week at the pet store I found antlers sold individually - hadn't bought them before as a pack of two went for almost $30! But figured I'd try the single for around $15. He LOVES this thing!!! Though I still shudder when I hear him gnaw so hard it sounds like he's snapping a tooth off!

    *fingers crossed*

    Yep. It's the only thing my Sadie will chew on. She loves them.

    Saba can't tolerate bone marrow either, he also gets really bad runs after it. But he's had antlers for a bit and there doesn't seem to be any issues.

    Mine has been working on the same antler for about 18 months, so they seem to be a good investment.

    Definitely a good investment! I have had 2 since we brought Maxx home in September, one for him and one for Emma, and they are both still intact. Maxx chews his constantly, he has been known to hide both in his crate! Marrow bones also give mine the runs. It does sound like Maxx is going to break a tooth on it, he chews so hard, but so far it has been fine.

    I buy antlers for my pup. The ones that are round are great - I try to choose ones with a little nub off to the side. Once I bought an antler that was sliced and had to take it away within a few hours. All the insides were gone and the remainder was getting too small. Now I only get the ones that look whole.

    Sedona and Keegan love their antlers and they last a really long time.


    Isn't it great to have a sister

    18 months? That's awesome! Glad I invested, it's working out well & after he's been chewing on it for hours he just passes out
