Bully sticks smell like....

Ugh. They seriously stink. Please do recommend a truly odorless one, I haven't found a real one yet.

And if this smell does not affect you, what is your secret?

Yeah. And then the dog's fur and face smells like an outhouse.

What do you expect? Think about what they are, why they don't call them cow-sticks. Ick! Sorry, I don't give them out, well, I don't buy them. If someone gives them to me, yeah maybe they have have them outside.

Hooves are about as bad though. Stink!!!

I buy the Red Barn bully sticks from Petco. They have a "extra large" (they might call it giant, don't remember) variety that are about 10-12" long and thicker than normal ones- about 3/4" thick. They have no oder at all. I sort through and buy the thickest ones. If they are 1/2" or thinner, I don't buy them. The thicker ones last much longer.

I just saw a recall on a certain brand (think they said it was sold at Target) for salmonella.

I bought some at Costco. I usually buy them at specialty stores and don't notice an odor...but these stink. They smell like what they are.

I didn't vote,because the smell isn't really comparable to anything that I know of. I give them regularly to my dogs here.

The ones that smell have not had the fluids emptied from the urethra.
