Bully sticks are a single ingredient dog treat. They are beef pizzles from grass-fed, free-range cattle. This makes them 100% beef treat. An important fact to take into consideration is the fact that beef pizzle is made up of only Beef muscle which means they are 100% digestible, because not all dog treats are completely digestible.
To make Bully Sticks, the beef pizzle is cleaned, hung vertically, and then dried. The beef muscle is then slow-roasted and smoked to lock in the natural beef flavor that dogs love. Our proper preparation of Bully Sticks preserves them without having to use any chemicals, artificial preservatives or other unhealthy additives. Our dried Bully Sticks are tough, rigid, and have a three-year shelf life. Compared to other dog treats on the market, they are very durable.
We previously mentioned the 100% digestibility of Bully Sticks, but we wanted to go into more detail about why theycan be considered a safe chew to give your dog. Unlike rawhide treats, where the beef hide is sometimes difficult to fully digest, Bully Sticks will not cause blockages in your dog’s stomach. Bully sticks are an entirely digestible treatandcompletely break down, so your dog has an easier time of passing them through. You don’t have to worry about blockages in their stomach, so you can have peace of mind while your dog spends days chewing away!
As with any treat, though, supervision is recommended. Bully Sticks are 100% digestible, but be sure your dog isn’t breaking off huge pieces that can pose a choking hazard.

Remember how we explainedthat Bully Sticks are a completely natural dog treat made from 100% beef? There is more of a benefit to that than just the great flavor that your dog will love.
Since Bully Sticks are a 100% beef treat, they are incredibly high in protein. Dogs are technically omnivores, but they are descended from wolves. Which means that their ancestral diet involved eating large amounts of animal protein. The protein content of Bully Sticks helps them mimic this diet.
“High protein means high fat then, right?” Nope! Bully Sticks are low in fat. This combination of high protein and low fat make them a healthy chew option for dogs with weight problems. That doesn’t mean you can give them endless Bully Sticks in a day though (although we’re sure your dog would love that). Be sure to continue limiting their caloric intake and feed Bully Sticks as treats, not meals. Take a look at the guaranteed analysis below.
