Antler Dental Chew!

Rosie loves a raw hide chew, especially after her dinner – probably why she has quite good teeth for an old girl. She can be quite bossy and persistent when she doesn’t get one. The problem is they only last 15-20 minutes, and then she either comes to demand another, or takes one that one of the boys has got bored with. I saw these ‘stag horns’ in our local pet shop. The owner had seen them at Crufts and was pleased that an antler lasted her collie quite a few weeks. So far it seems to be keeping Rosie quiet , and the others take their turn when she has finished. I am amazed that there haven’t been any squabbles over the antler. Best wishes Sarah

Thank you Sarah, my dogs love to spend time chewing and the antler sounds the perfect way to help clean the teeth while keeping the dog amused for hours!

Is that the pet shop in Lanchester villages Sarah - they look very interesting.


Sarah and Tony said...

Yes, from Lilydale. It's nice and clean, no mess. If they lose their taste, apparently you can refresh them with a bit of sandpaper.

are they true deer antlers that have been treated?

Sarah and Tony said...

Yes, marketed as 'stagbar', but definately antler. Not as hard as bone, but tougher than raw hide chew.

From Stuart Yearly:
Has Rosie eaten the rest of Bambi already?

Popped into Lilydale while passing today - three sets of antlers bought and three happy bedlingtons quietly spending the evening on their bed "cleaning their teeth"!!!
