I was thinking about trying the deer antlers too because of allergies as well as digestive reasons. I read that they don't splinter or expand...is that correct? Are they pretty easy on the digestive tract?
Funny story about the bully sticks...I was in the feed store with my 2 sons (9 and 10y/o) buying dog food and near the checkout is a box of HUGE bully sticks...like 3 feet long...each of my boys picks one out of the box and they start pretend sword fighting with them (I know this sounds obnoxious but it's a small family run shop and we were the only ones in there and we know the owners so they are more comfortable to be obnoxios,lol). I say, "If you knew what those were you wouldn't be playing with them." They both get a concerned look on their face and ask what they are. I tell them I'll tell them in the car and the owner just laughed and said she had the same conversaion with her sons. So, we get to the car and I tell them and they both say in unison..."Do you have any hand sanitizer!!!"
