Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
I had a dog with a bowel blockage caused by a swallowed lump of rawhide.So no more of them for my woofits.
I shall have to take a walk to the Duke of Buccleuch's estate ,a couple of miles from here, and see if I can find any deer antlers but I don't suppose I'd be allowed to take any.
By the way you can now get antler chews in the UK. I believe this is the only place that sells them at the moment: http://www.puredog.co.uk/our-products.php
I have just ordered a couple and I have to say the boys love them and it keeps them occupied for quite a long time.
Well, I should keep collecting deer antlers to sell, having seen what small pieces of antler are selling for!
I just pick them up in the field beside the house or up on the hill. The deer come down here every night to drink water from the river or eat the grass in the valley, and they sometimes shed when they are down here
Deer antlers last for years as dog chews, even a small roe deer antler will last at least two or three years.
They are the hardest thing I have found for dog chews, so long term they are probably cheaper than buying other dog chews
And yes, they are very safe, no risk of splintering .
