Earlier this week I posted about treats and if I should start this with my dog. It was her birthday this week so I took some of the advice that was given in my previous thread. I got her some bully sticks for the first time. I made sure they are made in the US and are all natural. Dang, they are expensive. I paid 12.99 for package of six, six inch sticks. The package said for dogs up to 20 pounds so I cut one in half and it seems to be plenty for her. I finally gave her one today. She is going nuts with it! Two questions, (1) how often do you give these to your dog and (2) are they healthy and fairly low calorie? My dog is an adult and is now just under six pounds with a controlled diet (I measure her food). The way she is going at this thing, I can see that it would be good for her teeth. Thanks....again I am new to the dog scene!
