Default WARNING - STAGbars and antler chews, pls read

DENTAL VETS WARNING

In the last few weeks we have experienced an unprecedented surge of fractured teeth from STAGbars and other antler type chews sold for dogs as "natural tooth cleaning". The teeth damaged all have buccal slab fractures of the upper carnassials (see below). Many have fractured so severely that surgical extraction is the only treatment possible.

How strange, I was just talking to someone about these.

I'm convinced it was a stag bar that damaged one of Blue's canines when he was younger. Nothing as drastic as above, but certainly abnormal wear.

Shame.

How come something that seems like perfectly okay always end up being bad. Too much of a good thing usually not true then...

I don't like them, I bought a couple but they are rock solid, unlike real raw bone which the dogs can scrape with their teeth and gnaw at, these don't give at all

I am not really surprised to be honest, they are rock hard.

My three have got them but fortunately they just take them out the box now and again for a chew an nibble then give up.

I won't be removing them from their toy box as they only spend a short time knawing on them, then go on to something else.

May be if they were really strong chewers I would remove them pronto.

Raw bones and raw hide. Chews give my boy squishy poops. He completely destroys any other rubber type chew. He has an extra large nylabone that he will have a gnaw on from time to time. Antlers I thought would be good for him till now! I'll continue with them but with greater supervision and shorter periods of time.
