Throughout the Mountain West, wild elk graze the native grasses. Every spring they shed their majestic antlers to begin the process of regrowing from velvet to fully mature, strong, nutrient rich antlers that they will shed again the following year.
Old West Antlers gathers these antlers from the mountains to provide you with the finest premium grade A+ dog chews for your canine companion. We guarantee the healthiest chews that will benefit not only your dog's entertainment but also their teeth and gums, bones, coat and overall health.
For centuries, humans have known about and used elk antler as a dietary supplement. Deer, elk, and moose antlers have recently become a very popular alternative to rawhide chews for dogs. Every year, male elk naturally grow and shed their antlers in their natural habitat. Antlers start out as layers of cartilage and slowly mineralize into bone and can grow up to an 1" per day. As they become large and the velvet begins to grow, the blood flow lessens and they become bone. Every year, when the antlers reach full growth, the animal naturally sheds them.
Because of the nutrient rich bone marrow in the antlers, dogs love these cut up pieces of antler. Not only do they provide entertainment for your canine, but they also have a number of other benefits.
