Large All Natural Antlers Center Cut Dog Chew Treat
Antlers chews make wonderful chews for dogs and last for weeks. Approx 6-7 inches. A great chew for indoors - no mess. Split down the centre for added flavour. Long-lasting and hypo-allergenic.
Naturally shed Canadian antlers are composed of many minerals including calcium, phosphorous, zinc (see chart above) and can be as much as 50% water. Studies have definitively confirmed that the chondroitin sulfate in velvet antler actually "helps restore joint function". Antler velvet's nutrients, such as glycosamino glycans, calcium, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, contribute to joint support and relieving inflammation. Recently however, research has established that the high level of chondroitin sulfate found in velvet antler acts like a "liquid magnet" attracting fluid into the proteoglycan molecules to ultimately help support animal cartilage. This is critical because this fluid acts as a spongy shock absorber and attracts nutrients into the cartilage. Without this fluid, cartilage becomes malnourished, drier and more fragile.
As with all consumable chew toys, please supervise diligently your pet when providing this antler chew. Once this chew has become worn down to a size that could pose a choking and/or swallowing hazard to your pet, please discard responsibly, and replace with a new one.
