Put down that raw hide and do away with those splintering bones! A nice reward for waiting patiently while I take conference calls from home or have dinner with friends, bully sticks are always popular in the Cusson house.
This month, Chewy.com sent us a scrumptious 5-pack of 6-inch "I and love and you" Free RangerTM Bully Stix. As 2-pup household, I really prefer even packaging :) It's like the age-old question of why hot dogs are sold in packs of 10 while buns come 8 to a bag! And they were not of the no stink variety -- although that is offered by this brand -- so air circulation was a must. Some of the benefits to treating with bully sticks include: reducing tartar buildup, introducing a single-source protein with no fillers or grain for sensitive tummies, its long chew life and tendon that won't splinter or cause internal bloating like some natural bones and raw hide can. So, as far as bully sticks go, these did not disappoint!
RECALL Alert! Just a week or so after our stix were delivered, "I and love and you" issued a voluntary product recall of their Cow-Boom! Strips because Salmonella was discovered in a routine sample test. I contacted Chewy.com to ensure their were no additional recalls in the works for other products and only after I was assured that the Bully Stix were safe did I allow the boys a taste test. It's so important to stay current on recalls and check expiration dates and storage instructions as many natural pet treats require refrigeration. Stay healthy my friends!
Tip: Bully sticks of any brand might stain your rugs or upholstry; have the pups enjoy them on a hard surface or use a towel as a buffer.
