Bully sticks vs steer sticks

In the world of dog chews, two popular options are bully sticks and steer sticks. While both treats are loved by dogs, there are some key differences to know about so you can choose the best one for your dog.

Bully sticks

Bully sticks, also known as pizzle sticks, are sourced from bulls making them tougher. They are a single-ingredient treat which means they're all natural and a suitable option for dogs with allergies. Bully sticks tend to be more appropriate for medium to large dogs due to their density and toughness, however it does make them a longer lasting chew.

Steer sticks

Steer sticks are similar to bully sticks but are sourced from a neutered steer making them softer. They offer the same chewy texture and savoury flavor as bully sticks, but may vary slightly in size and shape. Steer sticks are also suitable for dogs of all sizes, but they may be a better option for smaller breeds or puppies due to their softer consistency compared to bully sticks. A bonus about steer sticks is the fibrous texture can aid in digestion and promote gastrointestinal health in dogs.
