Bully sticks are also known as beef pizzle.
Ok..so what is beef pizzle? Beef pizzle is bull penis. Pizzle is an all natural muscle meat similar to tendons and jerkies.
Your first thought, like many, is probably "Ew, why would I ever feed that to my dog."
However, while it might be sound gross to us, dogs love it. They have a strong flavor and taste.
Since pizzle is a muscle not a bone, it is fully digestible and offers many wonderful benefits.
Bully sticks are not only good for your dog, but helpful for the planet and farmers.
Did you know that beef requires more land, fertilizer, and water compared to other food sources. This adds to the greenhouse gas emissions. To make it worthwhile, we want to be able to use all part of the animal.
At Jack's, we work with local Texas slaughters to take what might be thrown away and put it to use. Outside of the pet industry, most parts of the cow besides the meat, is thrown out and considered byproducts. While most people shy away from byproducts, they actually offer many nutritional benefits. This does not mean that these parts are inedible to humans, they are actually considered a delicacy in some cultures.
Bully sticks are made from bull penis. After the cow has been slaughtered, the raw meat is sent off to different places to be used. The muscle is then cleaned, stretched, and either sun dried, baked, or smoked.
At Jacks, we smoke our bully sticks in small batches. After they have been smoked, we dehydrate them to finish the cooking process and naturally preserve them. Smoking gives the bully sticks a natural BBQ flavor.
We pride ourselves in sourcing the highest quality ingredients we can find and maintaining high standards for all our treats.
