Yup. I made the mistake of ordering the 'monster' size or whatever the XXL was called from Dr.s Foster and Smith.
They were pricey and smallish compared to the advertised measurments.
Dogs showed great interest but I threw them out after a few minutes because I could see Ilda or Smitty biting the end off of one whole, swallowing it and ending up with a GI blockage.
So, having heard good things about them I went online to research and find better quality. Apparently there are different grades and some can be 'dry' and brittle. Elk is better then deer or moose or moose was better then elk and some were too old and what to watch for when buying antlers, naturally shed vs farmed deer.........and none of them cheap.
You would think a antler is a antler, right? Not so much. I have had some last months & some that were gone in a week.
10 minutes, that has to be a record
I have to agree. Not all antlers are created equal. My dog has one she has had for over a year and it is still mostly there except for where she chewed the marrow on the ends. Others she has gone through in less than an hour. The ones I ordered online didn't seem to last as long as the ones I've bought at the local pet food store. And, ten minutes has to be a record!

Too many to list waiting at the bridge but remembering them all
I agree with the others, I've had some that only last a day or two and some that have lasted months. It depends on the individual antler
