Dental health is as essential for dogs as it is for us. Dogs like to chew things. Like puppies, adult dogs also chew for comfort. They like to put just about anything in their mouths when roaming outside or playing. Of course, if what they find is edible, they will find a way to get to it, even if it’s in a trash can. They need to chew! It’s in their nature.
Antlers Promote Dental Health for Dogs
Chewing helps keep your dog’s teeth and gums healthy. A good chew treat will help you care for your dog’s dental health. You can keep their teeth clean and their gums free of infections.
I found that deer, elk, and moose antlers are the best dog chews. They don’t splinter, are fully digestible, and have nutrients beneficial to the dental health of your dogs.
Antlers are full of calcium and phosphorus. They are naturally shed by deer, elk, and moose every year. They are one of the fastest-regrowing natural resources. Wild deer, elk, and moose shed their antlers once a year as part of their natural process. After shedding, they re-grow another set. So no animal is harmed in collecting these chews for your dog either. You can feel good about supporting the dental health of your dogs this way.
Antlers are Affordable
Further, antlers are wallet-friendly. Antlers last much longer than other chews. So while the individual chews cost a bit more than bully sticks, they will last for weeks. As a result, they will be cheaper in the long run. As supporting the dental health of your dogs is an ongoing process, naturally, cost matters.
My dogs always have some antlers available to chew when they feel like it. It has made a huge difference to the dental health of my dogs. I was about to take them for teeth cleaning before I found these. Now all the tartar and plaque are gone from chewing on antlers. They truly are nature’s toothbrushes.
