Is deer antler velvet kosher? I'm referring to this: http://www.esupplements.com/products/dvx-pro-liquid/?mobile=1

Or this: http://www.esupplements.com/products/deer-antler-velvet-pro/?mobile=1

I remember learning somewhere that bones of non kosher animals are permitted because no one eats a bone. Also does using the spray product and spraying it under the tongue constitute eating, the spray under the tongue is meant for the substance to be absorbed under the tongue rather than it being swallowed. Please let me know on both products and in general deer antler velvet extract.

    Deer is a kosher animal. (It would need Shechita of course.)

  • I'm saying would it also apply to non shected properly deer, which that's usually the case with these products.

  • I don't get why a non-kosher bone would be permitted as dogs eat bones and usually dogs are used as the test as to whether a product is classified as food.

  • Does the deer need to be slaughtered if one is not eating it? I don't see any problem, either way. Jews wear mink and fox fur coats, coming from non-kosher animals.
