I was given this site info from Sabine. One of the biggest things she likes about this product is that it is radiation free. Not all bullies are . And from free range bulls. Who'd of thunk bull penis would be good for our dogs teeth.
Here's the site info.
Are all bully sticks created equal? What are the differences?
The first thing that one should consider when purchasing bully sticks or any other all natural dog treats is the
country of origin. Most of the bully sticks found in major pet stores are from India or other parts of the world
outside of South America. The living conditions of people and livestock in these countries is less than
appealing and as such we only sell product from free-ranging South American cattle. This cattle is considered
“green cattle” as it is not given hormones or fed feed. This cattle typically grazes freely on open grass fields
and grows naturally. Many people ask why not make bully sticks from North American cattle? The reason for this
is that it is expensive, and also most of the cattle in the US is kept in feedlots and encouraged to grow at a
much faster rate (growth hormones) than free-ranging cattle.
Another difference between bully sticks on the marketplace is whether or not they are vertically drained and then
baked. It is much cheaper to sun dry bully sticks and other natural treats, but it is much riskier as potential
diseases and bugs can enter the product much more easily. All of our treats and chews are all-natural and oven
finished, which is more expensive but keeps the quality of the product high.
We are also routinely asked about “odor-free” bully sticks. Quite simply put there is no such thing. Bully
Sticks are an all-natural beef product and as such should have some odor to them. If you ate a banana or even a
steak your expectation is that it would smell like a banana or a steak..and if it did not you would be concerned.
Many manufacturers currently selling bully sticks wash their products in peroxide (bleach) and other chemicals
which are not healthy but cause the product to have no smell at all. Again, we prefer to offer products which
are truly all-natural and as such they may have a slight odor.
Lastly, we recommend asking the store where you purchase treats and chews like bully sticks from if their
products are irradiated. A lot (most) of the bully sticks on the market today are irradiated (treated by
radiation to reduce the chance of infectious diseases) ours are not. All of our products are lab tested in
country and in the US by both the FDA and USDA and are approved without problem or disease. We don’t know about
you but we would not want our dogs treats or food undergoing radiation therapy to make sure that it is safe to
eat. As long as the correct manufacturing processes are in place a bully stick or any other dog treat should
never be irradiated. It is common for manufacturers to hide whether or not their products are irradiated so make
sure to ask!
We hope that this clears up any confusion and answers some of the common questions regarding bully sticks that we
get on a regular basis.
