#1 fact about bully sticks– They’re 100% Digestible!
Bully sticks are made from a single, natural ingredient that is 100% digestible. In fact, in the United States, the USDA regulates the production of bully sticks to ensure they’re made from all-natural ingredients and free of pesticides, dyes and chemicals. The treat is purely beef pizzle; in other words, it’s 100% meat. Bully sticks are one of the only fully digestible chew treats on the market.
#2 reason we love Bully Sticks – They’re Healthy
Aside from being made from a single, all natural ingredient, bully sticks are full of other health benefits. They are very high in protein and low in fat, making them a suitable choice for dogs trying to lose weight. Because they’re low fat, you can offer them more often without worrying about adding excess fat to your dog’s diet. Beef is also an excellent source of amino acids, magnesium and calcium to promote your dog’s skin, coat, muscle and brain health. Bully sticks are much less likely to cause a blockage like rawhide because of their digestibility and they don’t splinter or break into chunks.
#3 Fact about Bully Sticks – They Promote Dental Health
Bully sticks are an excellent way to promote dental health in dogs. Since periodontal disease is increasingly common in our canine companions, combating it can be difficult. Although they won’t replace regular dental cleanings by your veterinarian, the chewing and gnawing required to work through a bully stick scrapes off plaque and tartar before it sticks to your dog’s teeth.
#4 Fact about bully sticks – They’re Good For All Dogs
Bully sticks come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, which means there’s a perfect bully stick for every dog – whether you’ve got a 2-lb. Chihuahua or a 200-lb. Great Dane. There are regular bully sticks, braided bully sticks and extra-thick bully sticks. They also come in various twists and shapes to spice things up a little bit (mostly for the owners, as the dogs seem to love them all the same). Trial and error will determine which bully sticks are best for your dog and it will depend on how heavy a chewer your dog is and how long the treats last. They are all packed with the same health benefits regardless of shape or size.
