\nAt Bow Wow Labs, one of our top priorities is providing our customers with the best quality bully sticks that are not too big or too small for your Bully Buddy. Not all products that are sold on the market are made with the high standards that we have in place. So what is one of the reasons why our bully sticks are the best? They are low-odor!\u00a0\u00a0\nSome bully sticks have a strong odor caused by excess moisture that can be unpleasant, making your dog\u2019s breath stink and causing you to gasp at the thought of those slobbery morning kisses.\n\n\n\nWhat causes bully sticks to have a strong odor?\nThe odor of the sticks is related to the amount of moisture in them. The difference between a pack of bully sticks with a strong odor and the Bow Wow Labs low-odor sticks is the drying process. Sticks with strong odor have not been dried or baked long enough to release excess moisture. This causes the moisture to be released when your dog starts to chew on the Bully Stick.\nWhat is the Bow Wow Labs' bully stick drying process?\nBow Wow Labs bully sticks have a three-step process that contributes to their low-odor nature:\n\nThey are hung to dry allowing excess moisture to evaporate\nThey are thoroughly cleaned to remove bacteria that can cause strong odors\nThey are baked in an oven at a high temperature so that you don\u2019t have to worry about their scent lingering on your pet's breath or anywhere in your home!\n\n\nI\u2019ve seen bully sticks that are marked as \u201cno odor,\u201d what does this mean?\nWe are glad you asked! Bully sticks are an animal by-product, so naturally, they are going to have a smell to them. Sticks that are marked as \u201cno odor\u201d sticks are usually not completely odor free.\nSome have added chemicals such as formaldehyde and bleach that mask the natural smell. Not to mention these sticks are more processed and are not as tasty for your treat-deserving pup!\n\nOur low-odor promise\nAlong with our longer drying process, thorough cleaning and baking at high temperatures, Bow Wow Labs' bully sticks also have no added chemicals, no dyes, and no artificial colors.\nOur top priority is to give your dog the best, safest and tastiest bully sticks for their Bully Buddy!
