These are from real buffalo, not from water buffalo. They come from a ranch in the U.S. and have been cooked and cleaned. The horns are all from cows (i.e., female buffalo) and measure 12" to 18" long on the outside curve. The horns are hollow on the inside. Only the very extreme tip is solid. These horns are from ranch raised bison that have been killed for the meat.
The #3 Grade have imperfections such as broken tips, holes, etc.
Many of our customers use buffalo horns as dog chews. We have checked with our supplier and these horns are simply boiled with salt to kill any bacteria. No other chemicals were used in cleaning these buffalo horns. They are completely natural, and are often used as long-lasting dog chews.
Any dog chew presents a choking hazard. Please supervise your pet when using this product. If you have any concerns about the chew being a hazard to your pet, please take away the chew and throw it out to remove any risk.
The horns come from ranch-raised buffalo and are a by-product of the food industry. The buffalo were not killed just for their horns.
All shipments outside of the U.S. require a U.S. Fish & Wildlife export permit.
For exports outside of the USA, please check with the customs authority in your country before ordering to make sure you can import these into the country. We cannot provide a veterinary certificate for these horns. It is impossible to import these into Switzerland without a veterinary certificate.
