Thanks T! After I read your thread I put the ones they were chewing in the freezer.Lisa, just pop them in the freezer after they chew on them, and the ones that aren't being used. It just keeps them fresh longer. Since the ends get so gummy, they can grow bacteria that can make your babies sick.
Sarah & Rache, put them on your SS wish list.
That's a good idea too! I never thought of that either. Like a dummie I just left mine out, laying around the floor. Since my pups really only nibble at those things, it could be months down the road and the bullies would still be next to whole. I would only throw them away when they started looking dry. I have no clue what I was thinking. :lol: After they got sick, and the Vet and I went over everything even close to food related (anything that went in their mouth), they said not to leave them out like that anymore. I felt like a dummie. But now I'm wondering about the Antlers.Thanks T! After I read your thread I put the ones they were chewing in the freezer.
When I take their bullies away I usually leave them on a piece of parchment paper to harden, and that's where they stay until I give them their bullies again.
I'll have to put the new ones in the freezer too.
We didn't get the big ole' rack type thing. It's just a 4" tip off the ends. But it would be the same as far as storing it, I guess. That's the way ours are too. No change. Those things are like rocks!!!!My stepdad gave me a deer antler for mine ages ago, at least two years. They actually have been unable to do much damage to it and really do not mess with it much anymore but I havent really thought much about leaving it for them this long. There has been no change to it.
Yep, just pop em' in your freezer. Keeps em' fresh.this is something new....I didn't know to freeze the bullies but sound like a good idea....my don't really like the antler.....
