While most veterinarians advise staying away from antlers for dogs, if you do choose to give your dog an antler, it is a good idea to supervise him while your dog chews on it (or any chew toy).

Start by playing fetch in a narrow hallway with the fake antler to get your dog excited. The hallway eliminates distractions and keeps your dog focused on the shed. Move this process outside eventually, and then start hiding the soft antler in your backyard or a dog park.

I believe that hard plastic or nylon chews, sterilized bones, cow hooves and antlers are too hard to be safe for most dogs.

Hard chews such as deer antlers can also cause bleeding in the mouth or internally if they splinter and blockages if swallowed, two more reasons to avoid them.


" For many people, it's probably a good choice, because everyone knows that dogs like gnawing bones thought (even the raw bones), that is very good for dogs, but experts and veterinarians with experience do not think so.

In fact, deer bone is not quite good for dogs.

Feeding your dog homemade deer jerky will have her begging for more.

Making jerky treats for your dog at home might be easier than you may think.

Processing your own jerky with deer, chicken, beef or other meat ensures that you are serving quality meat and eliminates the need for preservatives.


per day or small dogs.

Feeding double that amount of liver only 2-3 times a week is another good strategy.

Just to be safe, don't exceed those amounts as there is some possibility of vitamin A overdose if large quantities are eaten.

liver is readily available in most grocery stores.


Avoiding Health Complications from Antlers

Antlers that break or splinter can get lodged in your dog's mouth, throat, or intestines, causing dangerous blockages that could require emergency surgery.
