That is our unfortunate experience. Quinn got an antler for his birthday last year and was having a fine time chewing it. Not too long afterwards as I was doing a routine toothbrushing, I observed that he had chipped the tips off his upper carnassials, both sides. The chips aren't deep enough to cause a problem but no more antlers for him.

Oh gosh! No more antlers for my boy, either! Yikes! I'm even worried about giving him raw, frozen beef knuckle bones now. I think I'll do a more thorough teeth check tonight after seeing this!

Apache 10-1/2 & Kiya 9 both have worn teeth from years of chewing. I look at Lakota's perfect pearly whites and only hope they stay that way. Poor girl has grown up without tennis balls, only a few marrow bones but a much wiser me.

My vet had concerns about broken teeth with Antlers. I am especially skeptical with a 14 year old in the house her teeth can only be so strong. I think I am going to put them away.

Check bestbullysticks.com. Rudy loved the rolled cow cheeks, beef trachea, and knotted bully sticks. Unfortunately, he can't have them anymore.:cry:

I did find a "kong senior" in the store yesterday. Softer than the regular kongs.

I was giving her bully sticks, but they stink, so aren't so great indoors.

Everything else she eats so fast! :(

ETA: I was also worried about where they were made, and if they were preserved with anything, like those awful treats from China that made all those dogs sick

Bestbullysticks.com are not from china, and they have an odorless version. No antibiotics etc. They are the only brand I would give.
