What are Antos Antler Dog Chews?
Chewing releases, feel-good chemicals from the brain and keeps dogs happy, busy and using up energy.
Antos Antlers satisfy a dog's natural urge to chew, whilst also helping to strengthen and clean teeth.
Eventually, the dry marrow is exposed as a lovely treat when the outside has been worn away.
Antos antlers are a naturally grown chew so don’t contain nylon like some long-lasting chews. They are not an ‘empty’ chew like rawhide and contain important minerals.
They clean the dog’s teeth, rather than bung them up and they’re great for dogs with sensitive tummies.
Even dogs who are losing weight can enjoy Antos antlers because they only contain a tiny amount of fat. Naturally, they don’t contain additives or preservatives.
Antos antlers are ‘clean dog chews’, leaving no stain or mess on the carpet and they are also very low in odour – some say they have a very faint smell of fresh soil. They are effectively ‘raw’ and so retain all their goodness and safety.
Antos antlers are sourced from naturally shed Red Deer and Fallow Deer antler, much of which is from Scottish highland herds.
Make sure your dog is gnawing on the antler chew and not trying to break it in half. Don’t hold the antler chew for him as this may cause him to bear down on it. Leave it for him to work out how to enjoy it. Please don’t leave Antos antler chew toys outside in the elements, where other creatures can get to them, to safeguard your dog’s health.
Like any dog chew, the following is very important: To avoid a choking risk, take the Antos antler chew toys away from your dog once it gets worn down to a small enough size that your dog could easily swallow. Always supervise your dog when chewing the antos antler chew toy.

What size Antos Antler is best for my dog?
Because it is a natural product and impossible to achieve uniformity in each size category, there are many occasions that a medium will look longer (and thinner) than a large which might be fatter and shorter. However, it is the weight that decides the category, not the length or girth. Product images demonstrate the natural variations in size within each size category.
Just like with any chew, buying the right size for your dog is important. For example, whilst a toy dog could take on an extra large antler, it would serve no benefit at all and would be quite overwhelming for the dog. Likewise, a giant breed should not be given a small antler.
Small (50 - 75g) - suitable for toy dogs
Medium (75 - 150g)- suitable for small to medium dogs
Large (150 - 220g) - suitable for medium to large dogs
Extra large (220 - 270g) - suitable for large to giant breeds or dogs with strong jaws
In the very unlikely event that your dog isn't interested in chewing the antler, try rubbing it with sandpaper or a nail file. If your dog still isn't interested in it, try smearing on a small amount of peanut butter or honey, or soaking it overnight in water in the refrigerator.
Remember, Antos antlers are incredibly long-lasting so you may find your dog leaves and goes back to the antler chew many times before it’s finished.
