Are Bully Sticks Safe?

Yes, bully sticks are generally considered safe for dogs to chew on. Bully sticks are made from dried bull penises and are a popular and long-lasting chew treat for dogs. They are commonly sold in pet stores and are known for their durability and ability to keep dogs occupied.

Bully sticks are a safe alternative to other types of chews, such as bones or rawhide, because they are easily digestible and pose a lower risk of splintering. It's important to supervise your dog while they are chewing on a bully stick and to use a holder to prevent choking hazards. Ada used a gift holder in the video, but holders like the one linked below are better because they come with a clamp to secure the bully stick and are available in a variety of sizes to match your dog's weight.

Like any chew treat, there are a few things to keep in mind when giving your dog a bully stick:

1. Size: Choose the appropriate size bully stick for your dog. If the stick is too small, there's a risk of choking. If it's too large, it may be difficult for your dog to handle.

2. Quality: Look for high-quality bully sticks made from natural ingredients. Avoid products that contain additives, preservatives, or chemicals.

3. Allergies: Some dogs may have allergies or sensitivities to certain proteins. If introducing a bully stick for the first time, monitor your dog for any adverse reactions.

4. Supervision: Always supervise your dog while they are chewing on a bully stick to ensure their safety. If the stick becomes small enough to swallow whole, it's best to take it away and replace it with a fresh one.

Remember, every dog is different, and it's always a good idea to consult with your veterinarian about the best chews and treats for your specific dog's needs.
