Best Deer Antler Chews for Dogs


Gnawing on hard chews can help your dog’s dental health, removing plaque, preventing tartar build up and stimulating circulation to the gums. Deer antler dog chews are hard, long-lasting and appealing to your dog because of their taste and texture. They’re appealing to owners, too, as they’re not smelly and won’t stain things they touch!

However, watching your dog as they chew and picking a quality product is particularly important with antler dog treats. If your dog is large and/or tends to bite down directly on chews or tries to break them in half, antler dog chews may not be ideal, particularly if they’re made from older or more brittle antlers.

Deer antler treats are not ideal for aggressive chewers and dogs with high jaw pressure. Antlers are much safer for dogs who take their time when they chew, so if this doesn’t sound like your furry friend consider an antler bone alternative such as teething treats for dogs or the Nylabone deer bone listed further down below. Like any very hard dog chew, they can cause cracked teeth or they may splinter, damaging your dog’s mouth. Vets advise taking antler chews away if your dog tries to bear down on them or if they become small enough to swallow, and not allowing your dog to chew more than an inch of the antler per day.

The deer antler we reviewed below already had the sharp edges removed for safety, however, dog owners should also check deer antler dog chews for sharp edges and remove them with sandpaper if needed.
