    I don't allow Bully Sticks in my house since that time Bertie decided to share with me while I was sleeping and dropped the darn thing in my mouth! Took forever to get the taste and the thought of what it was out of my head!!!!!!!!!!

I was working in my craft room and gave it to Tank on his mat positioned on 3-4 feet away. He was about 5 months old at the time. He REALLY was enjoying it and I was getting some much needed uninterrupted craft time. After enjoying the bully stick for about 40 minutes, I hear a thud, look over and Tank is flat on the floor. I immediately thought I was going to have to do doggy CPR, but luckily he had just gagged causing him to throw up and that caused an anxiety attack which caused him to collapse. Within minutes he was fine and wanted the bully stick back, but No No No ~ no more bully sticks! It's just not worth it! Now I give him raw marrow bones. He loves them, they last a very long time and are not a choking hazard.

    Bully sticks also seem to stay moist and will be a breeding ground for germs. I used to give them to my Yorkie but one day she got sick. She was throwing up and also had diahrreah. When I spoke to the vet he mentioned that the bully sticks tend to get rather funky and are a total playground for bacteria. I stopped giving them immediately. Now they only get nylabones or the deer antlers.

    I see elk antlers mentioned, but are deer antlers safe to give them?

    Yes..we have Alice here whose vet says no! But my vet says they are fine and we've never had any problem at all.i usually get Deer but this time got Elk! They are huuuuuge! If you get Deer get large or extra large. The elk I got were xlarge..I'm thinking large next time! Yellowstone antlers is a great place to check out.
