MANY MANY small dogs will chew on AN ANTLER STEEPED OVERNIGHT IN BEEF BROTH.
Some dogs won’t chew anything at all! (Except Antlers in Broth)
If your dog chews in Greenies then you know by now, that they go down TOO FAST and they’re NOT scrapey enough – so they don’t serve to remove dental calculus.
And you may also see that your dog is a wee one. And like a lot of nonworking small breeds, they’re not much into chewing actual COW (beef) bones.
For dogs that’ll chew them: I like BEEF SHANKS, BEEF KNUCKLES (Always beef, never ribs, never PORK.)
But MANY smaller dogs won’t chew on beef bones of any kind.
Some small dogs which hate bones will take a HIMALAYAN TREAT.

First: Dogs prefer beef broth over chicken broth. For what it’s worth.
Second: Antlers are available in a “sectioned” or half-round-cut form, and an uncut form. The sectioned form takes flavor better. The round, uncut form is harder for the dog to break.
But we’re talking about small dogs here.
- So get a small, half-round or “cut” deer antler (or Elk, whatever) and use that.
- Boil up some beef broth (real or artificial) and take it off the heat.
- Drop the antler in that. And let it cool all night long.
In the morning (or whenever you’re giving it) take it out of the broth and give it to the dog. Likely they will start by licking it, and then carry it off to the bed and chew it. DO NOT STAND OVER IT AND MAKE A BIG DEAL. Just stand next to it and pretend not to notice anything.
