    Personally, if I were a pig dog pup and someone squirted boar stuff on my nose, I would never catch another boar in case they did it again.

    I had a mutt take a sika head away and hide it. So I didn't feed her for a couple of days, then let her off and watched her. And she took me to it.

    Apparently they get calcium from the antlers - and they are softer than bone so are good for their teeth? I dunno, im very new to dog owning

    A decent soup bone once a week is all you need.

    Brisket bone is the go, soft enough to be digested fully
