Dogs Need to Chew
Lot’s of dogs love to chew, which is a great way to release some of their energy, but it can be very discouraging when it’s one of your favorite pairs of shoes or your furniture.
Moose antlers are a great dog chew that will help deter them from chewing your prized possessions. Let me explain why moose antlers are so beneficial to you and your dog.
Moose Antlers are safe.
Moose Antlers are found in the woods after the moose has naturally shed their antlers. No additives or chemicals are added to them, so they are made up of only calcium and minerals. Moose antlers are non splintering and when your dog chews on it, it is gradually ground down.
This puts me at ease knowing a piece will not break off and damage my dog’s intestines. Compared to regular bones or marrow bones which can cause mouth and tongue injuries, get stuck on your dogs mouth, cause a blockage in their intestines and even scrape or poke through their intestines if small fragments break off.
Great for their teeth.
Because a moose antler is very hard and your dog will gradually grind it down they are great for their teeth. When they chew on a moose antler it will help plaque and tarter from building up on their teeth.
Way better in my opinion than bones and especially marrow bones which can break your dogs teeth!
No mess or odor.
Moose Antlers are dense so even when chewed on for a while they do not get soft. They will leave no mess on your carpet and they have no nasty odor to them like many raw hides or bones.
Economical Dog Chew
Compared to other bones and even other antlers like elk or deer, moose antlers are the most dense, making them extremely long lasting. Moose Antlers also grow the largest making it possible to provide a safe sized antler for even the biggest and most aggressive chewers.
Hypoallergenic and Healthy
Moose antlers being made up of only calcium and minerals are a great treat for any dog even those with the most sensitive stomachs or allergies. They also contain no fat so are a great treat even if your pup is on a diet or has pancreatitis.

The key for your dog to enjoy all these great benefits is purchasing the right size for your pet. We prefer and love Acadia Moose Antlers and follow their size chart when purchasing antlers from them.
