Holy Bullystick!

I am embarrassed to say that I just found out what bully sticks are made of and decided I should share it with you, just in case you don't know either. Bull or steer PENIS! That is correct. For some reason I never really thought about it before but in my latest "Your Dog " journal, there is a brief article on bully sticks.
Not only was I surprised to learn what they are made of but also to learn that they are considered a by-product and are RAW. Just like any raw food they may be contaminated with bacteria that can cause illness in both pets and people and therefore should be handled accordingly. In research conducted at Ontario Veterinary College, it was discovered that out of 26 treats analyzed, more than 10% contained potentially dangerous bacteria.
And that is not all you need to know. Bully sticks are high in calories. A 12 inch stick may contain anywhere from 150 - 264 calories. WOW! It wouldn't take too many of these to make your dog obese.
SO, now that you have the facts, think twice before giving your pooch one of these treats. There are so many other healthy choices that are delicious and low in calories.
