Elk Antler Chews for Dog Dental Health

If you’re a regular reader of the blog, you know that Elk Antler Chews are one of my favorite finds for dog health and wellness. Since February is National Pet Dental Health Month, I thought it was worth a reminder of the many benefits of Elk Antler Dog Chews and a description of the three options available through pupsplace.com.

Antler Chews are naturally-shed from ranch-raised elk. The edges are sanded to remove sharp edges for safety. These products typically last longer than rawhide and are great for healthy teeth and gums. Elk Velvet Antler is a renewable, all-natural dietary supplement that has been used as a primary health tonic and treatment for humans in Eastern Medicine for over 2,000 years. It’s consumed today by millions of people and domestic animals to promote strength, stamina and energy while supporting the immune system to restore and maintain good health. Naturally rich in vital components and nutrients – including glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, collagens and more – Elk Velvet Antler has been the subject of extensive research and clinical studies in the U.S., Canada, Japan, China and New Zealand. These studies have shown benefits for arthritis, hip dysplasia, degenerative joint disease, Cushing’s disease and more.

Some of the many benefits of Elk Velvet Antler: Continue reading

I’ve sung the praises of elk antler dog chews on a number of occasions. These are, by far, my favorite dog toy to recommend for tough chewers. Chewing is an important part of keeping dogs healthy so finding a toy that they can chew on for hours and won’t get destroyed is a challenge for every pup parent. Elk antlers last a really long time, dogs love them and they are 100% natural. But the health benefits of antler chews for dogs are also amazing.

  • Relieve joint stiffness
  • Support positive kidney function
  • Increase bone density
  • Boost energy levels
  • Aid muscle recovery Continue reading

Busting Dog Boredom

Well, it is yet another day well below freezing outside in the middle of winter and the dogs are longingly staring out the window. No more squirrels and rabbits to chase, no more rolling in the leaves or long leisurely walks. Winter time means time to find more indoor activities to keep the dogs entertained. Although Emi is quite satisfied curling up for the day with an occasional belly rub, Luca gets a little restless on days like this.

When it comes to keeping their minds sharp and stimulated I LOVE Continue reading
