Bones and Antler Treats for Dogs
Bone and antler dog treats are an ultra-long-lasting treat for your dog. Occupier treats are a great source of behavioural enrichment and can help promote dental health. Deer antlers and goat horns are very popular for their natural taste, allowing your dog to gnaw, chew and lick for hours and hours.
Best bone and antler treats for dogs based on our customer reviews
|Wag Kangaroo Large Bone||This bone took Pippa a couple of hours to finish. She really enjoyed it! - ERIN|
|Wag Goat Horn||Our cavoodle LOVES the goat horn! He would chew on it for hours! It's a Bit softer than the antler, so he goes through it faster, but it seems a bit gentler on his mouth while still helping to clean his teeth & gums. Highly recommend! - SONIA|
|Wag Whole Antler Chew||I really just can't say enough good things about the antler! It's all natural, great for maintaining our dogs' teeth and breath and keeps her occupied. Plus it lasts ages and there's no smell or mess. We have a German shepherd and the large size lasts months with her pretty much constantly chewing on it. We've tried goat horns, cow ears, kangaroo tails and everything else imaginable and it's the antler is the only thing that is worth the money and doesn't get demolished within an hour or less. Best thing ever! - DOG LOVER|
Frequently Asked Questions
What are antler treats for dogs?
Antlers are hard animal products usually sourced from deer species. Antlers are hard extensions of the deer's skull, which is composed of cartilage, bone, fibrous tissue, skin and blood vessels. The longevity of this treat has made it a popular option.
Are bones and antlers safe for dogs?
Although bones, horns and antlers are excellent occupier treats, it is so important that you do not leave your dog unsupervised. Especially if your dog is an enthusiastic chewer.
Bones and antlers are designed to be slowly gnawed on. Selecting the right size for the dog and discarding when the treat is small enough to fit in their mouth and be swallowed are additional safety measures. You should never give your dog cooked bones and extra care should be taken with air-dried bones, as these can be more brittle than raw bones.
So how can I help my dog's dental health?
Many veterinarians have concerns regarding safety and suitability surrounding bones, antlers and horns. Choking, foreign bodies and bacterial contamination are some of the issues surrounding these treats. I recommend reading Are raw bones safe for dogs as an introduction to the subject. . The gold standard of dental care for dogs is daily teeth brushing with a dog-safe toothpaste (human ones are not appropriate).
