Deer Antlers | L'Barkery
A long-lasting all-natural chew for your dog and Cat!
Ingredients: 100% Naturally shed Australian deer antlers.
Antlers are an excellent all-natural, long-lasting chew. Antlers are made of true bone which is fed by blood ,this blood is carried in the outer velvet of the antler before shedding.. Once the antler has achieved its full size, the velvet is lost and the antler's bone dies causing the antler then to be shed. Antlers are shed and regrown each year.
Chewing mechanically disrupts any accumulating plaque on your pet's teeth, and is, therefore, a self-cleaning action (Hennet, 1995). Chewing also stimulates the flow of saliva, which contains antibacterial agents that help clean the mouth (Gorrel, 2001). Therefore, chewing‟s initial physical abrasions as well as the resulting saliva flow help keep the mouth clean.
WHY CHOOSE DEER ANTLERS
They do not splinter ( if the antler has not been split )
Are not a slaughterhouse by-product they are naturally shed and sourced within Australia
Long-lasting: last much longer than any traditional chews
Antler marrow is a rich source of calcium, zinc, phosphorus, iron, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. All excellent for your dog’s bones, teeth and gums, and overall health
Various shapes and sizes: no two antlers are the same, your pet will feel like he or she is getting something new every time
(select the right sized antler so there is no chance of him or her swallowing it and remove when it has been chewed down small enough to swallow.)
Allergen-free: suitable for all. Ideal for those with food intolerances, puppies and kittens, seniors, and special-needs pets
Added bonus: They do not have a smell (not to the human nose anyway) therefore they do not attract ants or bugs. Even better they do not stain or make a mess!
