I would think the velvet antlers are a bit softer, because they are just grown in. I'd go with both types. Though seldom do the antlers with velvet still on shed naturally?

I agree, The velvet covering the new growth is rubbed off in the spring/early summer. Antlers typically don't shed til late winter, kind of strange the ad would give that option.

The Velvet ones were from a different place that offer venison for human consumption - so I guess they are a by product of the deer meat industry?
They also sell deer tail, deer willy and deer testicles

I'll order some of the big ones above

Well, a velvet antler is from a dead deer or cut off before naturally shedding... I don't want to think about it

They look alright I have heard deer antlers don't last as long at Elk antlers. If your looking for a long chew. I think I would suggest an Elk antler instead.

I know people who have heavy chewers and it lasted 6 months. I just got one for my boy and his stools are perfect and he hasn't made a dent in it, plus the price at the place I get them from is fa-nominal I get an 11in whole for $24!!! I mean that little of money for something that lasts a long time!

http://www.facebook.com/MTAntlerChews?fref=ts There is where I get mine from. They sell them at petstores, but the quality it usually really poor and the price is nuts. My dogs poop was horrible on rawhides and knuckle bones and he could split a knuckle bone in half in two seconds and a foot long rawhide would be gone in half hour he would chew huge chunks and cough and everything. NO more rawhides for me.

They are currently working on their website, but its not ready to launch.to order : You can send them a facebook message you can ask for price list and reccomdations based on your dogs and they will take your order there then if you give them your email they will send you an invoice to your email to pay via paypal once the antler is ready to ship they dont want to hold onto your money without the antler being ready to ship. Or you could just send them an email at: mtantlerchews@gmail.com
