Scout & Zoe’s raise awareness about the importance of dental hygiene as it relates to overall dog health. According to a March 1, 2011 study in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, “Inflamed and diseased gums are associated with inflammatory affects in other parts of a dog's body, such as the kidneys,” Am Vet Med Assoc. 2011 Mar 1;238(5):601-9.The American Kennel Club also urges dog owners to check their teeth frequently, as a way to detect potential mouth infections that can lead to serious problems in the gums and other parts of the body, including the heart.
Dental hygiene is something a lot of people never consider when it comes to their dogs, but it can have a tremendous impact on their health and quality of life,” says Cindy Dunston-Quirk, owner and developer of Scout & Zoe’s Natural Antler Dog Chews. “And it’s so easy to address, with just a little time and attention, along with the right choices.”
Scout & Zoe’s Natural Antler Dog Chews are 100 percent natural premium elk antlers, gathered only after they’ve been shed naturally as part of the animal’s life cycle. Scout & Zoe’s Antler Dog Chews contain trace minerals such as calcium and phosphorous. The minerals help dogs maintain clean, healthy teeth and aids overall pet health.
In developing Scout & Zoe’s chews, Cindy discovered that natural antler products have a number of advantages over other kinds of chews. The chews help dislodge food particles that might turn into harmful plaque. In addition they don’t splinter and stick between teeth like bones and they don’t wind up as a gooey mess like rawhide products.
Antler chews grind into a powder that leaves no trace behind. They typically last longer than other chews for a span of four to six weeks.
Scout & Zoe’s chews are available in a variety of sizes to suit every breed. No animals are harmed and no violence is imposed on any elk during the gathering of the antlers.

“Scout and Zoe love it when we pay attention to their teeth – it’s part of our lifestyle,” says Cindy. “We developed Scout & Zoe’s chews to try and make a difference in the lives of all dogs. Nothing makes me prouder than to know we’re helping maintain happy and healthy mouths for all of our furry friends.”
