The world moves on, new things are invented every day and innovations like the elk antler chews for dogs are created to eliminate some of those annoying moments that we never thought we could get rid of. There are few people who don’t love dogs, but dogs, like all other animals, have some habits that sometimes give us a lot more work than we’d like. Chewing is a habit that will not go away and yet can create many unpleasant consequences (aesthetically speaking), from torn bed sheets to scratched furniture – not to mention what happens to the dog that ends up swallowing textile, plastic and wood.
The dog treats like the elk antler chews for dogs were invented as a solution for that problem: not dangerous for dogs (some even healthy – nutrients can be added to the elk antler for dogs), fun and attractive for the dog to look at and play with, created especially so that they don’t split easily (becoming chew material for long periods of time) and distracting your dog from the furniture and other chewable things in your house, they are the perfect way to harmlessly allow your dog to continue a habit that he has no chance of breaking anytime soon.
The elk velvet antler for dogs is basically made out of deer antler – which is a bony material, strong enough to last and to stay a challenge for your dog, while at the same time soft enough to allow chewing. The elk antler chews for dogs vary in color and sizes (you will have to pick based on the size of your dog – too small may mean your dog can swallow it, which is definitely not recommended) and are the perfect way to allow your dog’s chewing habit to go on, while still controlling what is actually happening.
Before buying the antler chew, make sure it is large enough for your dog. Also, check to see there are no sharp edges that could hurt your dog. Before allowing the dog to use it, wash it with warm water and soap, to eliminate dust and other potentially harmful substances. Make sure the dog just chews, and not breaks the antler. Try to limit your dog to chewing just one inch per day – it is not recommended to offer him more.
The elk antler chews for dogs have the advantage of being odorless, which means that you won’t have to worry about unpleasant smells in the house. The dogs find them tasty – so it will be an experience that will be pleasant not only from the chewing perspective. You will have to watch the dog from time to time when handling the antler chew – for the simple reason that, occasionally, the dog may try to break it, in which case the dog’s teeth may not be safe.
Generally, the elk antler chews for dogs are harmless and can bring a lot of benefits for you and your dog both.
