WHAT ARE BULLY STCIKS?
Dehydrated Bull Pizzle, Yes Pizzle.
You can safely give these treats to your pet and watch him devour them with joy.
Bully sticks are not only an excellent choice for your pet because they are yummy (according to some dogs I know), but they also have many health benefits for your loyal companion. Let’s see what they are:
Your dog can’t complain of a toothache, that’s for sure. But he could be hurting without you noticing anything out of the ordinary because all animals hide their pain well.
If you think that bad teeth can’t be a serious issue for your dog health, think again. Dental problems might lead to life-threatening infections if you don’t detect the problem on time. That’s why it’s imperative that you take a good care of your pet teeth.
Bully sticks and brushing your dog’s teeth regularly can help you do that.
Since these healthy dog treats are tough and don’t break easily, your dog will spend a significant time chewing on them, which will strengthen the teeth. Moreover, the mechanical chewing motion reduces the build-up of plaque and tartar and cleans the teeth thoroughly.
That’s not all. Using these healthy treats as a dog chew prevents gingivitis, bleeding, loose or decay teeth.
Since bully sticks are made of 100 % beef, they contain around 80-85% animal protein and only about 1-2% of fat. Most of these treats also contain essential mineral and vitamins for your dog’s optimal health such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorous.
The high protein and the low-fat make these natural dog treats a healthy choice for any dog, especially if they have a weight problem.
Nevertheless, moderation is necessary. An average 6-inch stick would have around 90 calories or about 10% of the daily requirement for a 50-pound dog. Take that into account and don’t overindulge your pet, no matter the sad puppy eyes begging for just one more.
Unlike a rawhide dog chew, bully sticks are easier to digest because they are made of natural ingredients and contain only beef. They break down completely once in the stomach of your pet, and the risk of a blockage is almost non-existent.
