Deer antler as chewing toy - does it wear down teeth?
My 7 month old loves to chew ... bully sticks and a favorite marrow bone he's had for ages - he has always chewed with his front teeth as though sharpening his teeth. We've said he's 'chewing like it's his job' and laughed when we hear him in another room grinding the bone down repetitively. Last week I gave him a deer antler (from reputable pet store) which he loved. I don't know if it's my imagination, but it looks like he's filing or grinding his lower front teeth down a little. I never noticed it before with any other chewing bones/toys.
I tossed the deer antler just in case ... has anyone else noticed this with your dog?
