All three of the antlers pretty splintered. Those pieces are dangerous! If you are not actively watching your dog while they chew, they could get seriously injured from these pieces. I consider our dog to be a medium chewer. If your dog is a very light chewer, these may be safe. But if you dog actually likes to chew, these are dangerous, and would recommend something different.
My dog ate a bunch of splinters from an antler and threw up. I thought maybe it was a fluke, so I gave her another antler, and she immediately bit off another splinter and swallowed it. This has never happened with other antlers I've bought.
Our many dogs are crazy chewers. We've replaced floors, couches, food bowls... all things that taunt them apparently. We hadn't tried antlers before, they seemed a little intimidating. The truth is, they are so much better than the other bones we tried. Our yard was full of every size bone possible. They just eat them and discard most of them by burying them. No idea why bones aren't good enough, but wholesale sized stacks of paper towels are so delicious to them. Thank God we found these things! The dogs seem to like the texture and the challenge of getting the marrow out. Not a single antler is in the backyard buried. The dogs literally hoard them in their crates! We're guessing the neighbors are appreciating not seeing a boneyard in back anymore, too. Another plus is that when we clean their crates, it's not gross touching antlers like it can be with other things. They also don't seem to splinter like most bones we've had, so its nice not stressing about the shards getting lost and poking anyone when we're outside. So many good things about these antlers!
My pup loves to chew on sticks and branches, but when I came across the split antler I thought to myself she has to try this. I was shocked when she immediately took it and chewed on it for a long while before falling asleep. If she is happy I am happy.
You can not really beat the price and quality of these Pupfords elk antler dog chew My pup is an aggressive chewer but these can totally stand up to him They last so long and the price Compared to purchasing them elsewhere you are getting such a good deal Love this and highly recommend
I gave these to my three dogs who are medium chewers. They were all splintered badly within 10 minutes. Not a high quality product, I do not recommend.
We got these for our Golden Retriever and wish we had gotten the pack with 3 in them. She loves them! Thankfully they last a long time we will definitely be reordering tbese in the future
I have 3 labs and this package came with 3 antlers. They chewed them right up so fast I was super bummed, especially after reading the reviews. I had to pick up so many small split dangerous sharp pieces. I will not buy these again.
This chew is not for every dog. My dog was curious about at first but after a few days she stop liking it. Maybe depends on the dog size.
These are one of my favorite chews to give to my dog. They last SO long and my puppy loves them and will chew on it forever. They do not smell! They do not leave behind a mess and they are a great size for the price!
