Elk Antlers are Fun and Healthy for Your Dog

Elk Antlers LargePeople require certain nutrients to maintain a healthy life, and our bodies absorb vitamins and minerals from our foods. Unfortunately, much of our food these days is highly processed, so we take vitamins to make up the difference between the nutrients we get from our food and the amount our bodies need. Humans aren’t the only ones who require these essential nutrients. Dogs need them as well to help their bodies function properly.

Amazingly, nature provides minerals essential to canine health in the form of an all-natural chew toy. Antlers from animals like deer, elk and moose contain high concentrations of calcium and phosphorus as well as iron and zinc. At Barkworthies.com, we know antlers are Nature’s chew toys, which is why we offer elk antlers in a variety of sizes perfect for any size or breed of dog.

Small dogs will love Small Antlers, a elk antler cut to between 4 and 6 inches in length. At their maximum, these smaller antlers are just 1.5 inches in circumference, which is perfect for smaller mouths to chew all day long. Unlike processed livestock bones, antlers do not chip or splinter while being chewed, so they are incredibly safe for your canine best friend.

Dogs in the medium-sized range will bark for Medium Antlers, which are sized from 4 to 6 inches in length with a 2.5-inch circumference. The perfect size for medium dogs, the natural grinding action of canine chewing slowly grinds down these antlers releasing the nutrients within. Antlers are also available in bigger sizes. Try Large Antlers or Extra Large Antlers for canines with a bigger bite. For big dog with a big need to chew, you won’t go wrong with Giant Antlers, which are 2-3 times the size of Extra Large Antlers.
