    Default Antlers safe for Puppies

    Are Deer/Elk antlers safe for puppies with puppy teeth still?

    We gave them to Bacon and he loved them, still does. Just make sure they aren't so small that they can be swallowed whole

    Okay great! I ordered some from yellowstone and got size medium...They look pretty big. Tuni LOVES bully sticks, but I'm so afraid every time we give them her I hold it the whole time and watch her like a hawk that she's not breaking any pieces off. I hope she likes the antlers the same since they're safer! She's teething so bad and just wants to dig her teeth into something, she's not interested in nylabones at all.

    To my knowledge. Ellie has been working on one from day 1 and loves it. Like any other chew toy, just observe and use good judgement.

    Antlers are excellent and good for them too. They won't splinter so you shouldn't have to hold it for her. Just throw them away when they get worn down to a size that would be small enough for her to swallow!!

    Don't be surprised when she can't make a dent in the antler, the one that we got Bacon six months ago is still 95% intact. They are seriously hard to the point that Bacon will only play with his on the mat upstairs or the carpet down stairs because the sound of it on hardwood floors bothers him.

    No bully sticks!! I just got xlarge elk antlers and let me tell you...they are HUUUUGE! my vet said they actually had vitamins/minerals in them and just to take them away before they can fit in their mouths. Also, if they get dry..toss them. We do have a member whose vet told her absolutely not..so I suppose there are two opinions! We've been using them and never had a single splinter.

    I really hope she likes them...it seems like shes interested in something (nylabones, kongs, stuffed toys) for .5 seconds then she's on to attacking us...it's really hard. My fiance used bully sticks with his last bulldog and bought one and I was amazed at how it keeps her attention. FINGERS CROSSED she feels the same with the antlers, I would feel much better about it. I'm a nervous wreak to begin with her and the bully stick just adds to it!

    Yes sir, totally agree!

    As for the antlers...yes sir totally agree yes.

    I have one also for over 6 months and it barely has any marks on it at all. My newest puppy has been using it for teething.

    Good Day~
