A cool chew

I’m a lucky poodle!  My humans just gave me a new, gigantic chewy:  an antler!

It’s long lasting and way healthier than my old bone.  If I do scrape anything off of it, it will be packed with good-for-me minerals, like calcium.  Tip from my “mom”:  If you get an antler & it doesn’t smell much (so why bother chewing, am I right?),  have your humans sand the surface a bit to release some smells.

And keep it safe.  Only chew antlers from the USA.  Here’s some grrreat advice from mom’s fave place to buy antlers:

Supervise your dog. Do not allow your dog to attempt to break the chew in half with his back teeth.  Do not allow your dog to consume more than 1/2″ to 1″ per day.  If you need to get the antler away from your dog and he doesn’t know “drop it”, you can trade him for a tasty treat such as a piece of meat or cheese.

Best part, dawgs:  No Rudolphs were harmed.  Woof!  ~Rusty~
