What are bully sticks made from?
Bully sticks are made from a single ingredient, 100% beef. The beef they are made of comes from a bull’s pizzle or penis. Yep. In many parts of the world, humans actually eat this product for the same health benefits that our dogs enjoy from bully sticks - bully sticks are low in cholesterol while high in protein, vitamins and minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
How are bully sticks made?
Bully sticks are made from 100% beef, more specifically, the bull’s pizzle or penis. The process begins with the bull’s penis, typically 23”-25” long. Once the bully stick is cleaned, it is hung vertically for the fluids to drain. The smell of bully sticks comes from these fluids, so this draining process is a key step. In the next stage, bully sticks are dried and stretched to 30-40” long. At this point, our sticks (which is not the case with all bully stick suppliers) are cooked in an oven for a short period of time to kill bacteria. Our sticks are drained, dried, and cooked longer than normal bully sticks to reduce the odor even more than the standard process would. The bully sticks are then cut into pieces, often of varying sizes, ours to 6”.
When should I give my dog a bully stick?
Bully sticks are handy whenever you can’t entertain your dog yourself. Give him one anytime to keep that wet nose out of your business while you do chores, catch up on work, or spend time with (human) guests. These long-lasting treats are also great as training rewards or for good old-fashioned spoiling!
How long do bully sticks last?
The shelf life of a bully stick from the time it is produced is 2 years making bully sticks not only a long-lasting product once your dog gets a hold of one, but also beforehand. Any bully stick you receive from Bully Bundles will have at least 18 months of shelf life remaining.
Are bully sticks safe?
Yes! Bully sticks are a 100% digestible dog chew that are made from just one ingredient, beef. Unlike many other bully sticks you might find, our sticks are baked in an oven to kill off bacteria, contain no pesticides, preservatives, or chemicals whatsoever, are produced at a human-grade facility and are USDA and FDA tested and approved. Additionally, bully sticks do not have the same risk of breaking into sharp pieces - and potentially lodging in your dog’s intestines - that many other popular dog chews have, such as rawhide or antlers. Nevertheless, as with any dog treat or chew, when feeding your dog a bully stick, make sure he has plenty of water available. Keep an eye on your dog and remember that bully sticks are not intended to be swallowed in large pieces.
