Yes, it's Boots & Barkley bully sticks from Target.
They are made in the USA, but they are also sold at Target, lol. We don't recommend buying any edible dog products at Target, Walmart, K-Mart, Walgreen's, most grocery stores, Costco, etc.
What??? I thought if it said made in the USA it didn't matter where you buy it. what's wrong with walmart, target and especially Costco? I bought some toys from Costco....
It doesn't matter if made in the USA...lots of products, treats, food and toys made in the USA can be harmful and recalled. I know Wallmart sells many unsafe products but also some good ones so for me I would only buy products in Wallmart or the above stores if I know for a fact they're safe by constantly checking the re-call lists or have used them before. Its the same for humans. I always read labels as well, so many harmful additives in some foods and treats. I would also watch out for toys made in China, they can harm pets.
Most dog toys are made in China, no matter where you buy them. The Good Toys group has suggestions on toys that are not made in China, and there have been other discussions about this in the main forum as well.
But I said not to buy "edible dog products" at these places; toys are not really edible, although many dogs seem to think they are, lol.
The stores listed, as well as most grocery stores, do not carry any of the brands we have researched and recommend in The Food group, and lots of things that can seriously harm your dog. If you are well-informed on brands and ingredients, you might be able to find safe products in these stores (I have yet to see any), but most people do not know what "menadione sodium bisulfite" or "propyl gallate" on a label means, and do not want to have to read labels at all, so we give this as a rule of thumb.
Good grief, Bull penises? That's it! my dog might have to be a vegetarian!!! That's disgusting....I'm learning a lot here on this forum! I will probably only buy antlers because I know that they are humanely made. Please don't anyone burst my bubble lol...I'm picturing people out in nature collecting deer anlers into their little baskets...lol.
lol. I love watching people's reactions when they find out what they are. Seriously though, I think it's great that all of the parts of the animal are being used. My previous dog always loved them, my mom's dogs love them, and I will be letting Bailey have them as treats.
My holistic vet cautioned me about bully sticks in general, said that glue is used and when I did give Mojo one anyway on a long car trip to keep him busy I saw the bully stick had white goop at the chewed end and puppy some white goo on face and paws, it was so hard to wipe off. Any thoughts on this issue.
