Chewing comes naturally to dogs of all ages and sizes. For dogs, chewing has been shown to provide many health benefits such as stress alleviation, improved gum health, and dental health. Moose Antlers, as a natural chew, are an excellent alternative to rawhide dog chew, and can be beneficial for dogs of all shapes and sizes.
Chewing on mineral-rich bones releases endorphins that help relieve stress and anxiety.
Benefits For Dogs
Dental & Heart health
Dogs naturally chew to maintain good oral health by mechanically wearing down teeth to help eliminate tartar buildup, remove plaque, and promote good blood flow. Studies have shown that good dental health has direct benefits for heart health.
Good for joints
When a dog chews on a bone, the dog’s jaws exert a certain amount of pressure on the bones to create friction that forces the jaw joints to work. This can help strengthen joint cartilage and improve muscle flexibility.
Many studies have shown that dogs that are anxious or stressed will often chew on objects to alleviate this anxiety. In addition, chewing can provide a distraction and stimulation for dogs during times of separation from their owners which can help keep them calm during times when you go to work, grocery shopping, and other activities outside the home.
Chewing on antlers helps break down food in a dog’s stomach before it enters the intestines and helps relieve constipation. It also acts as a source of calcium which is important for healthy bones and teeth.
