I had stopped giving these to my Super-Chewer, Regan- he'll chew for a few minutes, then- VOILA! GONE! Half of the stick is swallowed intact. I worry about them obstructing. I have read that they're more digestible than rawhide ( which we do not give), but I worry. Any advice????

Has anyone had experience with the petco bully sticks? I love that Toorc stays busy chewing his but the smell is just awful. And it makes his breathe wreak and it lingers on your skin if he licks you. Are the Oder free ones better? I haven't looked at the Costco ones... Maybe I should see if he would like antler.

I'd be a little worried about choking, myself. Maybe a raw beef knucklebone instead?

I don't really like the Petco bully sticks. I think you'd be better off ordering somewhere else. I'm lucky - I can get locally made bully sticks around here. They're expensive, but far superior to anything else I've ever gotten.

Bully Stick Dog Chews in Bulk - Free Range, All Natural

So far, these have been the best deals I've found. They offer 6" and 12" bully sticks anywhere from regular to jumbo, braided, straight or curly, low-odor or stinky, in bulk or smaller orders, and if you order more than $49, the shipping is free, and there's no tax.

I just wish the owner, Jess, wouldn't use USPS for shipping as they take so much longer to arrive than say, UPS or FedEx. But they're worth the wait. My dogs love 'em.

For any health-conscious owners who like to know the whereabouts of the animals sourced for these things, I inquired about the origins of the bulls used for these, and Jess kindly replied to me with the following info:

"I did a little research and found this:

Nutritional Analysis: Crude Protein: not less than 80%, Crude Fat: not less than 1%, Crude Fiber: not more than 1%, Moisture: not more than 15%, Ash: not more than 2%. 15 Calories per inch.

Hormone-free, antibiotic-free and chemical-free USDA inspected free-ranging beef."

Have you tried the unscented ones? Never smelled them myself but my friend swears by them.

I did try them... I'm censoring how they really smell lol... Saying it smells like she stepped in her own poop is not 100% accurate... Maybe I'm getting the wrong brand, I don't know... The pups absolutely love them so I deal with it, I would prefer to find them non smelly but have had no luck yet... The ones in packages are even worse (btw)....

The website I recommended has low-odor sticks. Check 'em out.

The ones from the pet store give Nala the runs and I'm not sure why. Best Bully sticks she tolerates just fine, but even with the jumbo we have to keep an eye on her so she doesn't swallow the last couple inches!

First - sorry that I'm resurrecting a somewhat old thread, but I just wanted to post this information here in case anyone in Ontario was looking into buying bully sticks. And on top of that there are a few threads on bully sticks, so I didn't think the info warranted a whole new thread.

This month I e-mailed Creature Comfort to get their prices for bully sticks this is what I was told:

"We do sell Bully sticks. For Beef, 5-6" are $4.50 each, 12" are $6.99 each and the 16" are $15.99 each. For Waterbuffalo they are $3.99 each for 5-6" and $7.99 each for the 12". All of the previous pricing is for the thicker "supreme" bully sticks. If you buy them in quantity, the 5-6" Supreme beef are $32.00 for 8 , and the 12" supreme beef are $48.00 for 8, and the 16" supreme beef are 4 for $60.00."
