    Default Are bully sticks supposed to smell this bad??

    I picked up my first bully stick for Lola this afternoon, after hearing a lot about them on there. Holy moly this one smells so gross! I got a small one, but she's been chewing at it for a while, and it's all I can smell! :-( I'm wondering if the quality of this one is bad? If I ever get one again it will be from a different store! LOL

    Well, it's a bull's penis. They smell like bull penis and pee. We got one once and it stayed in the house for about 10 minutes. Wally wouldn't touch it, he just stood and barked at it. I think he was offended by the smell too.

    There are odor-free ones, but we never tried, we just went for antlers instead.

    I got Penelope a bully stick, because everyone here raved about them. I let her chew on it for a few hours, and then I got sick from the smell and sight of it and had to throw it away.

    well i was going to get Lola an antler when she got a little bigger. I'm also nervous about rawhide things b/c she's so small still. the bully stick seemed just her size...but yeah GROSS and Melody I think that is what's going to happen at my house too! Good thing it was only $2!

    I've read that the odor free bully sticks are treated with some nasty chemicals to kill the smell. We have found raw marrow bones and antlers to fulfill our Pugs' chewing needs.
