What to do with bully stick ends?

Hey everyone, just wondering if there's anything i can do with the collection of bully stick pieces I've taken from Nova? I take them when they reach a size that I know she's daring enough to try swallowing ... but shouldn't. Any way I can stick them all together or into a block or something? Google didn't help, so maybe I'm thinking crazy here lol.
Thanks!

Throw them away. A friend just had to have a piece surgically removed.

How long are the pieces? Someone else had posted that they'd clamped vice grips at one end of the bully stick to keep their dogs from swallowing the last few inches of it. Never tried it myself, but it might help you get more "milage" out of them. I would still supervise as some vise grips/locking pliers release easier than others, one swipe of the paw and it's off, others require a loss of skin form your fingers to release.

I've seen ground-up bully stick sold as a food topper somewhere. It seems like if you save a pile of them, maybe they could just be run through some kind of grinder to make "sprinkles."

I soak them in water for a day or......wrap bacon around them.....a coating of brown sugar and a smattering of bbq sauce...30 minutes at 350 in the oven and serve them to our guests for appetizers.


Always a hit....but never give up the recipe to those who ask.

LOL. Seems like a good answer, with a little variation: Serve to the doggie guests.

Perhaps it's a trial and error situation. Soaking in liquid would likely be part of the solution. Maybe add some beef broth to the water. If you experiment with different ways to moisten & heat the pieces, you might find something that works well. Boiling in broth with a microwave might be something to try.

Deja swallows the ends. Never had a problem with the at least hundred she has eaten over the years so far.
