    Default Question about deer antlers

    A friend who hunts is bringing over some deer antlers tonight, what should I do to them before I let Presley have them?

    Only thing I can think of would be to wash them well. If they are large you could saw them into more controllable pieces but you want them large enough that they can't swallow them.

    I was wondering the same thing. Macy is a chewer as everyone knows and someone told me to buy her deer antlers. So i did and she chewed on it for about 2 min and hasnt touched it since despite my encouragement.

    Yep thats what I do. Wash them really well and saw them to more manageable pieces and take sharp tips out.

    @webster03 somebody suggested soaking them in beef or chicken broth to keep them from getting brittle, maybe this will help catch her interest? I finally bought some for all my fur kids for their stockings so hopefully they will love them as much as everyone elses pups do. Got one for my mils pup too.

    @cali~jenn That's a great idea. But don't boil them. You don't want to give it to them cooked. I really wouldn't do anything to them. Just hand them over to the dog.
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    But grind down any sharp edges or points. They could sure do some damage!

    When we buy them we pick out ones with marrow exposed, then Lola will grind the marrow out slowly but surely...they last us about 3 months each

    It took me a few months to convince myself to buy some. Now I wish I would have known about them years ago!
