Bully sticks

Charley loves bully sticks and can go through a 6 inch stick in a day. I'm just wondering, are bully sticks ok for a dog to chew on. I watch and make sure he doesn't swallow the end piece (although yesterday one disappeared somehow).

If not bully sticks what else. I used to give him himalayan chews but he goes through them so quickly now and they are expensive (>$8 per chew).

My two like them, and when I find a smaller piece I just toss it. Target now carries bully sticks and bully braids made in the USA for $5 a pack. I was giving them flossies, but it seems they're really thin and flimsy now. I bought Antlerz for Pixie and she was not impressed, and sweet potatoes give her UTI's.
I just know Mig has swallowed a piece before, but all ended well, no pun intended!....

Beth, Pixie Puff and MiG too

There are those who think bullies are great and those who think they are terrible for our dogs, Mine love them but are watched when they have them to make sure no chunks are bitten off, so far so good, I keep them for special occasions, not daily. The ones I buy locally come from my state

I have really wondered about these. Charley loves them but I feel suspicious about them. Thanks for chiming in.

Tillie gets a bully stick maybe once a month, once every other month.. they are GONE very fast and we hate the smell, even the 'no smell' moo ones stink!
I have yet to try himilayan chews, she does have 2 antlerz, one real antler from our neighbor who hunts and one of the cut in 1/2 ones from the store.... she chews on those when she really needs to gnaw on something. thankfully she isn't a huge chewer, never has been.

once a month. gee, Charley needs something all the time. I can really sense his restlessness when he doesn't have something else to chew on. I'd like to find some options to bully sticks? Something he can chew on but not ingest.

Have you tried hooves? Timmy likes them and I stick one of his squeaky balls inside so he works on trying to get it out for a while. I have also given him beef knuckles. I'm running low on these but he also like Yaky Puffs. Have you heard of them? They are made by the Himalayan Chew company and they remind me of rice cakes. I can only find them at one store and I'm not up that way too much so I need to go soon and stock up. I give Timmy one of these types of treats nightly after I feed my cats, he's learned if he stays quiet and well behaved he'll get something, it also gives me a chance to sit for a while he chews away.

My pup loves Yaky Puffs too. I buy them in bulk at bestbullysticks.com because they get kinda pricy at the pet shop. The Yaky Nuggets are really fun too because you microwave them before feeding them to your pup. However, my baby lovessss bully sticks so I give them to her once a week/every other week. They are 100% a-ok to give to your dog. Hope this helps!

What happens when you microwave them?

They puff up! It's like a cheesy piece of popcorn (so not long lasting but very amusing for me and my pup). Plus it's just cheese so it doesn't smell bad. It's also a bit hot after the microwave (go figure) so I normally pop it in the freezer until it cools (a few minutes).

I found this youtube video for them.
