Chew on This

Antlers shed by wild deer and elk might seem more fitting inspiration for a Georgia O’Keeffe painting than for a pet products entrepreneur. But the nutritional value of the discarded appendages wasn’t lost on Allison Sims, who collects shed antlers and uses them for healthy, long-lasting dog chews that are chock full of vitamins and minerals.

Allison got the idea to sell antler chews after seeing how much her own dog, Kai, enjoyed chewing on antler remnants. With the help of her business partner, Will Nichols, she gathers the antlers, which are naturally shed each year by deer and elk, and then sizes, cleans, and packages them. The antler chews won’t splinter, stain or smell, and they’re packed with calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, and other beneficial nutrients. Our canine testers loved gnawing on them -- and dog owners can take comfort knowing they’re free of hormones, antibiotics, steroids, and animal byproducts.

A naturally irresistible chew... what more could a canine ask for?
