February is National Pet Dental Health Month.
Last week, I shared some of my personal tips with you to make brushing your dogs teeth easy, and no longer a chore for #dogdentalhealth month.
This week, I would like to introduce you to a chew that I use, which helps keep your dogs teeth super clean, with some added health bonuses as well.
My huskies are huge fans of antlers.
But there are right ways, and wrong ways to give your dog an antler.
Before we get to that, let me share some benefits of giving antlers to your dog.
- Naturally shed antlers are 100% natural
- Great for dogs with sensitive tummies or allergies
- Antlers from this n that do not splinter or chip
- no scent
- no mess - no carpet stains!
- High source of protein, calcium, glucosamine, and chondroitin.
- Works wonders for cleaning teeth
From extra small, to jumbo size for the big pups out there!
You can get antler "buttons," split antlers, or whole antlers.
I always get the large whole antlers. They last
the longest. An antler can last months depending
on the chewer. As with any hard chews, or bones,
it is important to supervise your dog with their
antler. Be sure that your dog is gnawing on it,
rather than literally trying to chomp it in half. If
your dog is a chomper, this may not be for you
as you could potentially end up with a cracked tooth.
Antlers are fabulous for a teething pup who just needs
something to gnaw on.
Antlers last a super long time in my house. My huskies will destroy a toy in seconds, but with these, they just love to gnaw on them for a little bit when they get bored.
The health benefits are fabulous with antlers, so it is well worth the money.
You can find antlers at almost any pet store.
I get them from my local pet store, and they are from a company called This N That.
It is important to research the company before you buy the chews to ensure that the antlers have been 100% naturally shed from deer.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday.
