Sharp edges on Anlertz after being chewed
My Cairn Terrier, 8 mo. old puppy has had 2 Antlertz. He absolutely loves them and is the only thing that actually occupies him for a time. However, He really chews to get the marrow out, leaving rough, sharp edges. I found one of the pointed pieces (very small) on the couch and it was hard like a rock and very sharp. I am concerned if he swallows those that he would have problems. Are the Antlerz supposed to be soft if swallowed and go thru the digestive system? I love this item, but want to make sure small pieces will not harm him. He's had 2 and they both do the same thing. I don't know how I would trim the edges off because it's hard as a rock. Please let me know your thoughts, as I want to continue buying them for him. If those sharp pieces aren't anything to worry about, that would be great.

I'm wondering if they soften when wet and being chewed. I wonder this because when I've picked up my dogs antlerz before, I've never felt a hard or sharp point, in fact it's usually pretty soft and slimy. Just a thought!

I don't let my dog have any treat that I find sharp pieces after the fact. I've seen my tea cup take a large bite and not chew it. Sometimes they will gulp things down. Ive not tried this product.
I use Busy Bones her all time favorite and Nylarbones - apple & lamb & Turkey & Sweetpotatoes .
These are chewie bone shaped treats. I don't do rawhide because of the same issue your having.
In my city there hard to find in stock ,so I use auto ship. it's so easy and she always has her treats
