Hey I have heard alot of you talking about bully sticks on here. We give our pups greenies for treats but after the recent post on here about those I dont think they will be getting them any more. I have never been a fan of giving my dogs pig ears and raw hides it kinda grosses me out. What is so good about these bully sticks? why are they soooo expensive? Any thing else you recommend?

AS they are Beef Tendon,they are a natural chew thats SAFE. I buy them from a all natural web site.They offer them in 6 or 12 in. They last a VERY long time and are completly safe.They donot SWELL up like rawhide(I have stopped giving these because of that) & my boys LOVE them. The ones they sell in the pet stores are very thin in comparison to the ones from the web site I buy from.They also help clean the teeth.

I have always been told they are made from a bull's penis (which I suppose is a tendon of sorts). Should this not be true, then I've been had.

Found this on a website:
Macho Stix are a unique dog chew. These chews are made from, well how should we say this, BULL penises. We'll wait for you to stop laughing. ... ... Done? All NaturalThese are not rawhide chews. These come fresh from USDA inspected meat processing facilities. Not rendered meat like many other bully sticks (including many of our competitors). Your dogs will love them and you can feel comfortable knowing your dog is enjoying the highest quality chew treat you can get. This is a natural product so size does vary.

Found another site:
Bully Sticks are 100% Bull penises, Not a tendon, and not processed meat strips.  Bully Sticks are dried, lightly smoked or natural flavor and delivered to your door. We never try to hide what they are by giving them little cute names.[/B]

And for all of us who were squimish about lamb lungs........!

I never knew where bully sticks came from.

They say it's a good day when you learn something new. I dunno - maybe TOO much information?

ewwwwwwwwwww, I just bought one and it is 12"
then I decided to search here for it and see if it is safe. I don't think this is natural. I gotta go wash my hands now.

L.E. loves her bully sticks. Whenever someone asks us what she's chewing on we say "her peepee!" We all start laughing and then they ask what it really is and we say "her peepee!" It is kinda gross, but she loves them. We usually give her a little drink of water afterwards and before she licks us!
