Here are some of the reasons we think that you should try out bully sticks for your dogs.
Reason 1 - Fully Digestible and Easy to Digest
Bully Sticks are made up of buffalo pizzle, they are also sometimes called pizzle sticks. They can be given to aggressive or non aggressive chewers. They can be given to young adults , mid-aged dogs and seniors as well. These dog chew are neither too hard or too soft, protein rich , so they are just perfect for dogs of all ages. Unlike other chews these chews are completely edible and leave no residuals. It is protein rich and has a lot amino acids which are good for the development of muscles, development of skin and coat and support all round healthy development of your dogs. The only caution we'd like you to exercise here is to not overfeed as these are calorie rich and you may need to adjust the overall calorie intake of your dog accordingly.
Reason 2 - Dental Health Benefits that come along
Dogs love to chew and bully sticks are a perfect chew that engages them in the way they like. Along with all of this however, bully sticks do provide stellar dental benefits. The accumulated tartar and dirt from chewing all those carbohydrates and other chews can result in a load of deposit in their teeth which needs to be cleaned. Bully sticks have been known to provide stellar dental benefits.
In fact, as dog parents we must be careful to ensure that the dental health is given a high priority. Teeth and gum health if maintained properly can lead to a graceful ageing.
Reason 3 - Curbs boredom and stimulates mental health
Dogs loves bully sticks. We would like to say that apart from all the other benefits one of the overlooked factors is the mental health, boredom that your dog is likely to suffer if you're not able to give him all the time he needs. Well we are not advocating that you ignore your pets here by choosing bully sticks, that is a big NO! from us, but we all have a life beyond a dog which includes all the other monotonous things you'd like to avoid. Yes! it is for these situations when a bully sticks can be given to your dog and then can be taken back....well if they let you that is!

Reason 5 - The safety angle
So we get this question in varying formats:
- Are bully sticks safe for dogs?
- Are bully sticks safe for puppies?
- Can I give an adult dog a bully stick?
Well, we'd like to throw in our perspective here. First of all, bully sticks are completely edible and easily digestible. So even if your dog accidentally swallows it, it will be processed like other food and digested. So fear not.
However, there are some aggressive chewers who would like to swallow the whole thing, or puppies. For them, we'd just like to say that supervise your dog always when he or she is chewing. Never leave a puppy alone or an adult dog alone when it's chewing. This should at least be done when you're not very familiar with the chewing behavior.
