Re: Antlers
 
Here's the thread that was started some time back on antlers as chews http://www.k9diabetes.com/forum/show...hlight=antlers

I don't buy the split ones (some are sold split in half) as I think they have a risk of splintering but I haven't had any trouble with the regular ones.

They don't affect Ali's blood sugar at all unless she gets into an intense chewing session...then it can actually drop her bg.

The only problem I had was when I bought one from a place that also sold venison. The antler was fresh I believe instead of naturally shed and actually had blood draining from the marrow - yuck. I tossed it and made sure I only purchased shed antlers from then on.

We've had several different kinds. It's nice when the edges are sanded down so they aren't sharp. Our favorite are from www.crookedcreekantlerart.com. They offer a coupon code for return customers. Ali usually does well with a medium from there.

She has about 4 of them in her basket and I find them pulled out and scattered in the yard every day without fail :D.

I would like to try this for Beau but I was wondering can they ship to California? Since it is illegal to have any antlers from game in California? Anyone out there in California has ordered these? California has so many rules.

Really? I didn't know that. Is it because of poachers?
Antlered animals shed their antlers naturally once a year. You could try calling the CA Dept of Fish and Game http://www.dfg.ca.gov/ or see if the company you're ordering from knows. The hunting laws talk about tags for antlered animals http://www.hunter-ed.com/ca/course/c...egulations.htm.

Let us know what you find out.

Probably if they are prohibited they won't ship them, but I'm thinking they will be OK. I did a quick Google search and it looks like shed antlers are OK, but not from a fresh kill unless you have a hunting license. If you order forma company and have a receipt I wouldn't think it would be a problem, plus it is in your home. Next time my hubby and kiddos go camping I will have them be on the lookout for some shed ones. We will have to smooth anything too pointy- the German Shepherd pup isn't too bright yet, and of course Izzy can't see. That could be dangerous to ME :)

Finally we have Antlers available in the UK. I know not many on here are from the UK but for those of you in the UK you can get them from www.puredog.co.uk and they are called STAGbar. I have ordered some to see how my lot get on with them.
