After months of wanting to order some Antlerz for Tiggles to try, I finally found them at a natural dog boutique.
• 100% natural
They DO NOT contain:
Here is what the company says about them:
"ANTLERZ are made from a natural material that is rich in minerals, does not splinter and comes from a completely renewable source: Deer Antlers! Wild deer shed their antlers once a year as part of a natural process, after which the deer re-grow another set. These shed antlers are gathered by ranch workers and transported to QT Dog's manufacturing facility. The antlers are cut to the appropriate size, cleaned, and packaged to produce ANTLERZ™ brand dog chews. ANTLERZ™ hold up substantially longer than most traditional chews made from plastic, bone, or compacted starch. A minerals analysis of ANTLERZ™ show high concentrations of calcium and phosphorus, with trace amounts iron, zinc, and sodium. Unlike processed livestock bones ANTLERZ™ don't chip or splinter when they are being used by even the most aggressive chewing dogs. A dog's chewing action grinds ANTLERZ™ down slowly. "
So you can see I was super-excited when I had found them. I immediately gave it to Tiggles to try.
She sniffed it, licked it, gave it a nibble-and that was the end. It now remains in her (open) toy box.
Looks like it will be given to our neighbor's dog :D
This one didn't appeal to Tiggles or Tracksie, but I would recommend trying it with your dog. I have heard nothing but great things about Antlerz, and I still believe it is an exceptional chew.
