Questions & Answers

9 Customer Questions

I’m curious about the texture of the freeze dried bully sticks. Will it last just as long as a dried stick for the dogs to chew on, or are they easy to break off and eat like other freeze dried treats?
Answer by ChewyAug 03, 2018
These sticks are still chew treats, but the freeze drying process intensifies the flavor for picky dogs who may not utilize chew treats as much as their pet parents would prefer. They do not have the same texture as freeze-dried raw kibble.

Are these treated by irradiation?
Answer by ChewySep 04, 2019
Vital Essentials does not treat their bully sticks with irradiation.

how many calories in one bully stick?
Answer by ChewyNov 08, 2017
Due to this being a natural product, the weight can differ so every ounce will contain 84 calories.

How long are the sticks? Looking for 12"
Answer by ChewyOct 12, 2017
Each treat is approximately 6 inches in length.

Zero stars

These are the worst bully sticks I’ve ever purchased. My little 15 lb dogs swallowed these in less than a minute. I typically give them a bully sticks for 10 minutes a day and one bully stick from another brand lasts me weeks. This is not a chew stick but rather a food treat. I will not be repurchasing. Such a let down because I’m a life customer of Vital Essentials freeze dried food.

Dogs like the Bully Sticks

My Border Collies liked the Vital Essentials Freeze-dried Bully Sticks. I put them in a Bully Stick holder to prevent the dogs from trying to swallow them without chewing. They do chew them quickly.

still hard chews

I tried these for my small pups (under 12lbs Chihuahua, terrier mix & Chiweenie) in hopes that they would be able to work on these being hydrated and hollow but they were still too hard for them to chew. My medium to large pack members who already get bully sticks will be enjoying these. Our deaf Corgi/Aussie mix loves them.

Package is tiny & expensive

Honestly I don’t care if my dog loves these - or how nutritious they might be - when it costs $13 for 6 chews. And they are SMALL. My blue heeler will absolutely demolish these in a few minutes when I’m really looking for something he can chew on for hours. These would only last longer if you give it to a Chihuahua. Maybe. Seriously disappointed in the size of the package & how empty it is for this price.

Great Treat!

My dogs are relatively heavy chewers, these held up for about 3 minutes before they finished them, which is a little bit longer than it takes on others. They’re about the same size as ones I buy in store, maybe a bit bigger! They have pretty similar sizes in the bag, which is nice when you have two large dogs.

Great treats

My Shiba inu is very picky when it comes to treats and I didn't have much high hopes for him to like this treat because that's just how he is with other treats. Surprisingly, he loves these treats. Definitely a great find!
