True Carnivores Water Buffalo Horn
Water Buffalo Horns, what are they? These horns are growths that protrude from the skulls of the animal and are made up of two components:
The bone is the center, or core, of the horn and is fused to the bone of the skull. The bone core is covered by a resilient sheath (protective covering) made of keratin. This sheath is what makes these horns.
What is keratin? Keratin is a tough, non-mineralized protein that not only makes up the sheath of the horn but is also a primary component of the buffalo’s hair, nails, claws, and hooves. Keratin is a family of proteins among the most important and versatile compounds in nature.
Keratin is a tough protein that when chewed turns slightly gummy. These horns are a perfect, long-lasting treat that will make your pet happy and satisfied!
