Elk Velvet Antler refers to the Velvet Stage (the first stage) of antler growth.


During this first stage of growth, the antler is made of cartilage and it is covered with a soft fuzzy coat of hair that 

is referred to as velvet.


In the Velvet Stage, the antler will grow approximately 2 cm per day. This rapid growth is a result of an amazing combination of Nutrients and Natural Growth Hormones that are only present at this stage.

 The antlers are humanely removed while still in this cartilage stage, prior to them starting to calcify into bone.

The antler is then dried and the skin and hair are removed and it is ground into powder.

It is this powder that I bake into my Canine Cookies.

Male elk naturally shed their antlers and grow a new set every year, therefore E.V.A. can be harvested from the elk annually.
