Stupid Bully Sticks

Grrr, it's 5:30 a.m. and I just spent the past hour or so steam cleaning my daughter's room and the hall and mopping the bathroom, living room and kitchen b/c Cassie our Golden just had diarrhea on the carpet in her room and some in the hall and she threw up in my kitchen. The ONLY thing different she has had was a braided bully stick she got from Santa. She ate the entire thing. I think she also ate Izzo's bully spring too. I will never give these to either of my dogs again. Have any of you had any issues after your dogs ate them? Dog ownership stinks at the moment (pun intended) I should be sleeping :/

Oh, and by the way, I cannot get my siggy pic to resize. I have it in Photobucket and have resized there but it is still the same size in my siggy. What do I do?

I only give mine the Merrick brand of flossies and we've never had a problem with them. What brand were they?

So sorry she was sick! I agree that it "stinks", especially when it's during the night. It's like when the kids are small and you wake up to one of them shaking you to tell you they threw up. Ugh! Hope she feels better and you get some sleep.

Yuck! Sorry you had to deal with that. My dogs have had the flossies before, but I never had that problem with them.

My guys love these and have never had a problem. My guess would be that it was a combination of (1) the newness of the treat, (2) the volume consumed (especially if she got them both) and (3) the speed at which it was consumed (large chunks I'd bet).

And some dogs just have sensitive stomachs.

Sorry that you had a "stinking morning". Hope the furballs are well.

I give mine Merrick Flossies too. I get jumbo size and cut them into half. When they eat the entire thing, they don't have diarrhea but the stool is softer.

Best, Poornima

We are sending get well wishes for Cassie. If I had those results from the Bully Stick I wouldn’t give them either. I switched to the Merick Flossies, the bully stick's smell is to strong for me. I buy the flossies by the case and have never had an issue with them other than Galen does not eat on Flossies days, she gobbles them down, Smarty will chews on hers for days.

Get well soon Cassie!
Oliver and Comet love flossies and would gobble them in a minute if I'd let them
PS- I'd love to know a good carpet cleaner if that ever happens to Oliver and Comet. Can anyone recommend a good carpet cleaner

Sally,((Oliver)) Comet and Pennie too!

So sorry to read about your stinkin' morning, Nicole. Here, we only give the Moo Brand Odorless Bullies or Merrick Flossies and have never had a problem. But, Tori, like Smarty, makes hers last for days and days. She has never eaten an entire one in a single sitting, but I'm sure she wouldn't be feeling so great if she ever did.

Hoping Cassie's feeling better.

Sharlene got me to thinking about this and several of us have bought the Bissell Pro Heat. I got this one that is little and very light weight. I did my great room carpet one evening around Thanksgiving and have cleaned up several spots though out the holidays from spills and such. No more hands and knees spot cleaning for me.

PS, $149. at Bed Bath & Beyond and with the 20% off coupon around $120.
