The box included an information card with a list of items and a monthly message.

petpackdog-august-2016-toy

Harry Barker Gingham Bone Toy (large, green) – Value $14

This was not the longest-lasting toy ever, but Nyx liked it pretty well (see below).

Holistic Select Drizzles Baked Probiotic Drizzled Snacks with Pumpkin, Banana, and Yogurt (6 oz) – Value $10.42

These have natural fiber from pumpkin (really nice to help dogs get firmer stools if that is a problem with your dog) as well as digestive enzymes and probiotics. They are free of wheat, which is great, although they do have oat and barley so Nyx can’t have them. They will be passed along to another dog to enjoy.

petpackdog-august-2016-tea

Exclusively Dog Peanut Butter Bone with Flaxseed (3 oz) – Value $4.49

This is made in the USA and is free of wheat, corn, and soy. You can break it up into smaller pieces (probably what you should do, as it is a large treat even for a large breed dog). I’ve been seeing this brand a lot lately in dog subscription boxes but it seems like a good brand that uses high quality ingredients, so I’m all right with that!

Tea for Spot Tea Party (20 tea bags) – Value $9.95

Well, this is interesting. It is (caffeine-free) tea for dogs. Obviously you wait for the “tea” to cool before letting your dog drink it and in addition to things like rooibos, decaf green tea, and turmeric, it has chicken and chicken broth. These last two ingredients are probably why dogs would drink it! It comes with a warning on the side that says “If your dog is pregnant, nursing, taking medications, or has a serious medical condition, consult a holistic practitioner before use.”

First off, Nyx definitely is on medication and has a serious medical condition (inflammatory bowel disease and now also Cushing’s disease as a result of being on prednisone long term), plus she can’t have chicken, so this is out for her. But, I would also strongly urge you to consult a licensed veterinarian with a DVM degree rather than a generic “holistic practitioner” in any case. (Some DVMs do holistic medicine in addition to traditional work.)

Here are some shots of Nyx enjoying the bone toy.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $38.86 for the August 2016 PetPack for dogs. That is one of the best values I’ve seen for this subscription box, and it exceeds the cost of the box plus shipping by a few dollars. Nyx enjoyed the toy and the two treats seemed pretty high quality. Not sure what I think of the tea, but if anyone has tried it on their dog and has an opinion, do let us know in the comments!

What do you think of the August 2016 PetPack? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?

  1. I was pretty happy with this box this month. The toy has somehow miraculously survived with my brood, the treats were a hit and I thought the tea was interesting! I get a lot of doggie boxes and it was the first time I’ve seen an item like it. Haven’t used it yet, but I think it will make for an interesting treat for my doggies!

  2. Love that expression on Nyx’s face. It’s the I’m-busy-working-on-a-seam concentrated face so many dogs get when busy at destruction! :+)
