Talking Bullysticks everyday?

Is it okay to give my spoo a bullystick everyday or should I limit it to a few per week? I recently ordered some in bulk when they were on sale. I just bought the regular ones but am now wishing I had gotten the odor-free ones. These are much smellier than the one I have bought at our local Fleet Farm. Stinky!

my only concern isthat itmay be more "fiber" per say going through the body and could result in softer poos

I give Swizzle free access to bullies. In the beginning he went through a lot but then it slowed down a lot once he got his grown up teeth. I have not had loose stool issues.

Exact same experience with my mpoo! I try to buy the odor-free ones, but even some of those can be rather, uh, pungent. Worth it though, they're Chagall's favorite chewy.

When Nickel (mpoo) was small, he had one every other day. Then he has more interest hiding them then consuming them. No soft poop from bully stick.

Hmm I was just wondering the same thing. In the past, Bully Sticks had been a very rare treat. But I finally bought a bunch from Best Bullies and was thinking of making them a more regular treat!

If you do that CM don't be alarmed if they get scarfed down fast the first few times. When they realize bullies will be around it slows down. Swizzle finds chewing bullies and his tracheas very soothing. If I run out I notice the difference. I am bummed I missed the bully sale.

Thanks all for the feedback. I am going to try just leaving them out for Jewel. She has a little tartar buildup on her teeth and I am hoping the bullysticks help with that. I also did buy some of the Himalayan Chews but she does not seem to like them.

My minis get one a night each. They chew on them while lying on the bed and that is the nighttime ritual before I put them in their crates to sleep.

Ive had better luck with these..
Clean Run: Beef Strap Tendons (The Claw)
They dont smell at all and they get my dogs teeth cleaner. They are natural and I give them every day...until I run out..like now :-) I bought some frozen knee joints from my new pet store...that has kept Madonna busy and is not too messy either. http://www.vitalessentialsraw.com/ht...t/FZKcaps.html

I use their tiny bits of freeze dried raw food for training treats..
