Bully Sticks are hands-down one of the most popular chews for your dog. Unlike other chews, they’re made from a single ingredient of beef muscle, making them safer and easily digestible. Since they’re made of beef muscle — a high-demand protein and ingredient worldwide — bully sticks are increasingly becoming more expensive and difficult to source due to raw material shortages. To combat this need and rising cost, Natural Farm created a competitively priced bully stick alternative made from 100% grass-fed beef cheek muscle & pizzle sheat: Power Bully Sticks.
What Are Power Bully Sticks?
Meet your dog’s powerful new chew: Natural Farm’s Power Bully Sticks. Through Power Bully Sticks unique construction of beef cheek muscle wrapped in a natural beef pizzle sheet, Natural Farm is able to keep prices lower and makes for a rich and savory taste. The dual-texture product is highly-digestible and is a great, positive outlet for a dog’s natural chewing instinct. Since beef is a complete source of amino acids, it supports your dog’s muscles, brain, skin, and coat, making it a nutritious chew, too. Since these treats are free of artificial chemicals, additives, and preservatives, they’re perfect for dogs with allergies or sensitivities. They can even help clean your pup’s teeth by scraping off plaque!

Bully Sticks Rising Costs
Bully sticks are incredibly in-demand and prices are expected to continue to rise. Because of rising costs and sourcing issues, bully stick alternatives are becoming more popular. Like many other products that increased in popularity during the pandemic, Bully Sticks were one of them! Many dog owners — new and old — turned to this tasty treat for its long-lasting ability to keep dogs occupied and happy while at home.
Not to mention, meat prices in general have risen overall. And since it’s made of beef pizzle, it’s more difficult to source as it requires a high quantity of livestock. Companies are having difficulty keeping this product stocked and meeting the demand. Natural Farm has fantastic bully stick alternatives that come from local suppliers of free-range, grass-fed cattle, like the Power Bully Sticks. Many of Natural Farm’s products include nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin to support joints for improved mobility and flexibility. They are naturally fun for dogs without unnatural ingredients like chemicals, preservatives, and additives.
Next, we have rawhide chews. These chews are made from the outer layer of cow hides. Rawhide chews can be a risk for dogs as they may cause digestive issues, choking and blockages, contamination, chemical poisoning, and allergic reactions. We recommend steering away from rawhide altogether to ensure your dog can safely enjoy a chew without the above health risks.
Whenever you’re introducing a new treat, it’s important to monitor your dog and provide plenty of fresh water. We recommend minimizing chewing time to three to five minutes at first and increase over a five-day period. Also, be extra attentive to young dogs and puppies, and steer away from chews altogether for puppies under three months of age.
