    deer antler chews

    I've read posts recently about deer antler chews being great. What pet stores carry them or are they only available online?

    Re: deer antler chews

    I'm lucky enough to have a locally owned store nearby where I can get them. There are several members here that have ordered antlers on line and are very happy with them. You might try searching for threads on antler chews - I believe you might find the name of the online source there.

    Good luck

    Re: deer antler chews

    This may seem like a silly question but are you guys talking about real deer antlers? Or is it just some deer antler looking chew of some sort? Uallis has a real deer antler that we found in the woods that we brought home, washed up and gave to him about a week ago. He's a very aggressive chewer and hasn't been able to do hardly any damage to it. He hasn't even been able to chip little pieces off of it or anything.

    Real antler. But our dogs destroy it. I bought 2, 1 med and 1 jumbo and the med lasted less than a week they're still working on the jumbo but the newness has worn off so they're not all vying for it constantly anymore. I think they're great. You're so luck to have found one.

    Chrissy, the Antlerz brand is not something I would recommend. They crumble and are destroyed easily I think they over process them which dried them out.

    The good antler chews are real antlers - cut into different sizes - they are never a stark white in color. They are either cream or a grayish color with a darker substance in the middle.

    Yes, I know several people that have friends or family that hunt and if they're lucky enough to get a buck and they beg for the antlers. Or you find a rack in the woods that have been naturally shed - grab them ---

    Actually FriendsofZoe mentioned an online source that she was quite happy with.

    Yup, real antlers. Finding them in the woods is like hitting the lottery. Lucky you.

    I guess its lucky...We have two more antlers that we have found but my boyfriend wants to keep them because he said that they are too nice to let the dogs chew on...I think he's weird for wanting to keep them...LOL!!

    Thx Renoman, good to know. I'll have to look for a new source. Bummer I have such a hard time finding companies that will ship to me here.

    Chrissy, try Pet Expertise. That's the online source FriendsofZoe used and she was happy with the product.

    Some hunting stores will sell real antlers in the decoy section. People use them to rattle together to attract aggressive bucks. They aren't really cheap, though.

    Hehe, why so "Ewwww"? Isn't an antler the same as any other bone?

Luckily we work together to to do it so we can get it done faster. We usually write between 150 -200 cheques a month though. Ugh! I HATE PAPERWORK!!!

    My "puppy" who is now 9 1/2 mo old LOVES deer antlers. She's going through them a bit faster now that she's older. She's 40 lbs and I buy her ones that are usually 4-6 inches in length and 2-4 inches round. The Red Bandanna Pet Food stores in GA sell them, but call first, they may not always have them in stock.

    I have also recently found tons on eBay. You might have to cut them smaller though. Just make sure they are not too old.... You want ones that are on the darker side (i.e. they don't look bleached => old).

    You might also call around to some local deer processors and see if they have some to sell or give away.

    Woo Hoo!!

    After talking about wanting to find some antlers for weeks, one of the large animal vets I work for brought me two!! One is a deer/elk type thing, and the other a huge moose antler! I admit, I think I might actually keep the moose one for myself
