Bully sticks

Can they eat them? Like all the way?

Our 12 week old loves them but the one time she worked hard enough to break a piece off I freaked out and took it...

Yes they can eat them all the way. I would highly recommend purchasing from www.bestbullysticks.com

They can eat them all the way but should still be supervised as if a chunk breaks off it could become a choking hazard. Better to just get rid of the chunks.

No. When they get down to about 2 inches take it way. That last bit can get slippery and if they gulp it can choke on it or cause an intestinal blockage.

One other thing - do they get "old"? Ours have lasted over a month already and if this is the pace - they will last like 6!!

It's my understanding that they won't get "old". That being said, Fitz was taking ages (7-10 days) to eat them at first and he's 7 months now and can down one in about twelve hours if left to his own devices, so they will probably start going a little bit faster than they are now.

They are fully digestible, but if he eats them too much/too often (because if it was up to him, any time there isn't kibble or peanut butter in his mouth, he would be chewing a bully) it makes his tummy hurt and he gets backed up. Just something to be aware of!

What do you do if your dogs lose interest in the bully sticks?

My dogs chew moose antlers instead. They love them, and last MUCH longer. One of mine is beef intolerant, so no bully sticks around here! Besides, I HATE the way they smell!(even the ones that are supposedly "odorless")
