29 calories an inch....

that is how many calories are in a bully stick. I guess size does matter.

I use the moo brand but in searching for calories I found them on the redbarn site...if you click on a product it will give you the info. It says the steer sticks on the lower right are only 6 calories an inch but I think it is a mistake because the top ones are also 29 calories an inch.


so a 7 inch bully stick is 203 calories. we've started cutting them in half.

Yep, I guess size does matter Missy, LOL. And yes that's a lot of calories, Molly is on 250 a day so one inch would be all she could have. LOL

Oh, that's funny, Missy ! And enlightening! I knew they weren't "light", but yeah...a whole flossie is about 250 calories, then! hmmmmm...... I never did let the boys eat a whole one, would remove it from them when they were halfway, but I'll have to let the store owners where I work know and if any customer asks, at least I'll know what to say. Thanks for the info, Missy !

Missy, how do you cut it in half? I'd love to do that, but it's so thick and hard. I'm pretty sure it would break my wimpy scissors.

Missy- That cracked me up!

You can cut them with kitchen shears if you have them. I try to break the flossie with my hands first, it won't break all the way through, then cut the small part that won't break by hand. It's easier that way since they're so tough.

Missy- you also might want to think about the jerky for dogs. I know that is pretty high in calories too. My friend with the newfies started making it and then realized how many calories were in there and switches between that and charlie bears when training

I use some very sharp pruning shears to cut flossies. Haven't tried to cut the bully sticks . . . I think Jackson thinks he's cool carrying that huge thing around He doesn't eat enough of it at one time to worry about the calories, but I do appreciate knowing the calorie count for future diet needs!

I don't think that flossies would have as many calories per inch as a bully stick, though. I'm guessing a lot less. I give the braided bullies and there's no way that Kubrick gets through an inch in a sitting... Hitchcock might be able to, but I'm guessing not. Flossies, on the other hand, are fast to go.
