Antler Treat Facts
All natural, No additives, Almost No Fat, High In Calcium, Super Low Odour
There are roughly sixty breeds of deer in the world. The one thing they all have in common is the ability for male deer to produce antler each year.The growth of antler is a natural occurrence that is part of the normal cycle of life and the shedding of antler occurs with no harm coming to the animal.
Antler grows at a very fast rate and is accompanied by a layer of what’s called velvet during the growth period. After the velvet has been worn off the antler then hardens further and takes on the qualities that makes it a tasty treat for dogs.
The reason for dogs liking antler is what’s inside. The outer layer is a bone like material while the inner fibrous part is a form of dry marrow which dogs love. Most importantly the bone and the marrow contain calcium, magnesium, zinc, manganese, potassium, and phosphorous as well as a very low level of fat being less than 1%.
Aside from the healthy aspects of what’s in antler, they also make for a fun treat for dogs just to chew on. Some breeds of dog which are known to like to chew find antler particularly interesting as the bone part is long wearing and helps clean their teeth. The long wearing nature also makes antler a great addition to a dogs diet without the problems of having to give your pet a new one each day. And add to that the extremely low fat content and you have an ideal treat for your pet.
