If you don’t already know, Bull Pizzles (a.k.a Bully Sticks), are basically the private part (to put it nicely), of a bull/steer cow.
Made of pure fibrous muscle (a by-product), these chews are low in cholesterol + fat, yet, high in protein. Once cleaned and stretched, bull pizzles are twisted into some interesting and functional sizes, shapes and forms, varying slightly in thickness and color.
Not containing any chemicals, additives or hormones, these chews are great for all life stages (puppies, adults, seniors) and are easy to digest (great alternative to Rawhide). Depending on the size of a Bull Pizzle and how aggressive a chewer your dog is, they can provide hours of chewing/gnawing entertainment, which is perfect for teeth cleaning; reducing tarter. Our suggestion, the thicker and bigger the pizzle, the longer lasting it will be.
tha Bully Pretzels are Great for Puppies!
If you are worried these chews are too fattening (high in calories), then just limit the amount given to your dog (remember, its a treat). We like to compare these bad boys to Snicker’s Bars. We personally wouldn’t eat 1 everyday, but once a week or even two weeks, isn’t that bad…right?
– Quick Note: Treats should make up no more than 10 percent of your dog daily calories –
Additionally, similar to the Antlers, if your worried about the protein content upsetting your dog’s stomach, monitor the intake. Allow your dog to chew between 1-2 inches and then take it away (Quick Note: Bull Pizzles can be freezed in a ziplock bag to keep them fresh). If all is well, continue this process, but increase the intake each time (like giving sugar to your kids for the first time, at some point you start to know when enough, is enough).
– Quick Note: Bully Bites are a good place to start (top picture), as they already come in 1-2 inch size sticks –
Afraid of being exposed to E-Coli or Salmonella Bacteria? Simply put, WASH YOUR HANDS (as with any raw meat)!
