Question bully sticks

Ok....I know rawhide is a NO NO, pigs ears are NO NO's, and Brick LOVES them. But I've read too many stories of rawhide and tummies and he won't be getting anymore.

I bought him a bully stick today....I do remember a post a long time ago, I believe Carina was involved in this one! I know what a bully stick is now ( a bulls penis) and Brick LOVES the damn thing, as gross as it is!! LOL Are they any better than rawhide or just as dangerous?

We got him a beef bone (thigh, I think it was) and when he was chewing on it, it splintered into little sharp bits so I took it away and am scared to give him another one!

He loves to chew bones and we want to give him something that is good for him and won't splinter....but the search is endless!! Any other suggestions??

Bully sticks are fine, if somewhat gross.

As for beef bones, I stick with marrow and rib bones. You should have no problem with those.

Knuckle bones are also good to give.

I started to give my guys Greenies...They love them.

My pet store sells them in single packages.The size goes by the weight of the dog.I get the jumbo for 100+lb dogs.
