Merrick Wishbones

I found a deal through Amazon for a 50 count box of these for $72.50. That would work out to $1.45 ea. I've been paying $2.49 ea at the Ag supply so I'm shopping around. Has anyone seen a better deal or should I just get these?

Never mind... I thought you were talking about flossies. haha!

I'm not sure what the regular price for the wishbones is but I do know that flossies are cheapest from Amazon, so it would make sense if Wishbones were too.

Yeah I got in on the cheap deal on Amazon last year for the flossies and I still ahve some left! I haven't seen another deal that good though! Rufus can go through a flossie pretty quick and the wishbones last longer for him now! Shamouti loves the flossies, but the thing he loves the best is always the thing his brother has LOL!

Are the wishbones more challenging? I will tell you mine LOVE the braided sticks. I know they smell but all 3 of them will take the braided ones compared to anything. I think it works their teeth more.

Amanda, did you end up trying the Moo brand bully sticks when someone (I think Missy) mentioned them? I bought the braided kind and they don't smell AT ALL! Kubrick loves it.

I bought a few braided ones at the dog show. It has been run and hide with the braided one for the last two weeks at my house. I thought I could trick them and put down the flossies but the braided one wins at my house- it smells though so we face bath and then put it up but I ideally I want braided ones without smell- do they exist?

The Wishbones are more challanging then the flossies. I can't really tell you why though? Maybe the flossies are stretched when they are curled? The wishbones are small and sorta thick but I would guess a braid would be harder. Rufus just really goes for the wishbones! He'll choose them over a flossie or a bully!

Yes, they do! That's what I was saying in the previous post... get the Moo brand braided bully sticks. They don't smell at all. Here's a link to the place I bought it from:

http://www.heartypet.com/proddetail....free_6&cat=361

Here's the info on it:

Quote:
- Bully Sticks come from Free Range Brazilian cattle that graze on the lush, green fields of Brazil and drink from fresh, clear, sparkling springs and streams. They are given NO hormones, NO antibiotics, and NO animal by products are added to their diets like U.S. and Canadian cattle that are kept in feed lots.

- Brazilian cattle are internationally known as "green cattle" because they are raised free-range. All meat products exported by Brazil are first inspected by the country's Ministry of Agriculture in accordance with international sanitation standards.

- All treats are manufactured in our own facilities in Brazil. All products are inspected at all stages of manufacturing, and meet all the strict USDA standards.

- Because of our correct manufacturing practices, Free Range bully sticks and tendons are guaranteed to be ODOR FREE!!

I have the Moo Sticks and they are truly odor-free. Worth the price.

Lina - what a great avatar of Kubrick. I just love his coloring...because he would match my house.
