This is what my vet sent when asked about the antlers and knuckle bones for pups. Basically said to wait until adult teeth were in, I don't want anything to affect those adults when they come in! I want him to have that full mouth of good teeth for biting and grip. :-D

"Anything hard (bony) may damage his deciduous teeth (baby teeth) or may affect the permanents as they come up. How about puppy nylabones? The puppies usually like them, they are safe if they eat them and no damage to teeth."
