Antlers are unique to the deer family and are made of bone-like material, which regenerates each year and branches out. They grow on the heads of more than sixty kinds of male deer, including moose, reindeer, caribou, and elk. Antlers dog chews generally come from deer and elk.
Now you can learn everything you ever wanted to know about antlers and then some! Antlers begin as layers of cartilage that gradually mineralize into bone. When the antlers have reached their full growth, the protective covering dries and the deer will rub it off on trees. The antlers fall off the deer in winter, and with each passing year, the antlers branch into more points until the deer has reached his prime.

Antlers make excellent dog chews because they are made of a bony material, which makes them hard, long-lasting and fascinating to a pooch!
