Q: Does anyone else give their dogs this?

Does anyone else give their dogs this?

I have been giving my dog natural deer antlers instead of bones, does anyone else think this is a good idea? I haven't had any issues with them and they don't break or splinter like bones.

Antlers are GREAT chewies. And, by the way, so are raw bones. COOKED bones splinter. Raw bones fresh from the butcher do not.

Deer antlers are actually sold as natural, long-lasting chew treats at some pet stores. They should be fine, as long as you monitor what your dog chews the same as you would with a bone or a rubber chew toy.
