in large quantities. The braided kind and the regular kind. I can't seem to figure out who to contact and was thinking maybe a meat department in a grocery store but I don't know about that. If you know, please let me know. Thanks.
Funny story on bullysticks (haha)...a friend of mine bought a few from the petstore a couple of days ago. She gave them to her dogs, who are nearly done with them. She asked me yesterday what they were, exactly, since she had no idea, and only knew that almost everyone she had spoken to on the forums or seen posting used "bullysticks" instead of rawhide.
Well...I told her...and she refuses to touch them ever again. LOL
what kind of dogs does she have ? i tried the bully sticks because everyone says they last for a long time. but my dogs ate them up like they were pretzel rods. so for the price and how long it took them to demolish them, its not worth it at all. its like a vey expensive dog cookie.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
I didn't know slaughter houses did things like that, but, I guess, where else would they come from? Seem likes a good place to check...local butcher or order from the cheapest place online. Though I have to pay $14 for a three-footer at our pet supply store...it's just unreal. I'd think they would be cheaper...bulls aren't in short supply...and erm, what else do they use those things for that they should be so darned expensive?!
I got Daisy and Bentley each one at this pet supply store in the mall- ( no pets just high end doggie items) and i got them each the longest one i think its about 12 inch long- and they were like 15.00 for 2 of them if i remember right- they were very exspensive but the lady working told me dogs love them and they looked like they would enjoy chewing them- They chewed on it for a day maybe and both of them are still hole and barly even chewed on- I do have tons of chew things like that- my dogs like the hoof thingies- i call them the toe nails- my kids wont touch them..lol they look like a toe nail--lol
They are little dogs and i dont think they have ever finished any of the chew treats i get them, they do have many of them to fill a hole toy box so they do pick and choose but they dont sit there and chew on them all day- I thought they would but they dont- Now i really watch for things i get to make sure they are digestiable-
You have to be careful buying bullysticks. Just because they're labelled that way doesn't mean they're the "real" thing. The real good, long-lasting ones are not cheap. The cheaps ones can be chewed through almost instantly. A fake bullystick is nowhere near as long-lasting as a real one. If the advertising of the product does not tell you that it is a bull p*nis, then it's probably not.
