There’s not a traditional information card with this subscription, but you get a couple of other inserts relating to themes, products, etc.
There was also a subscription referral card to pass along to a friend or family member with a dog, along with some treats.
Magic Coat Hypoallergenic Spray-On Shampoo (7 oz) – Value $9.99
Nyx has to use a medicated shampoo for baths, but every once in awhile, I want to clean a cat. Most of mine don’t take well to water (Monkey is an exception) and I do always try to keep something like this on hand. This will go to good use. (And it is currently still in production if I want more.)
I Heart Pet Head Playin’ Dirty 3-in-1 Towel – Value $9.99
This is a towel/massager combination item. It’s a bit small for Nyx (we use three extra-large towels when we dry her) but could definitely be useful for someone with a smaller dog, so I will be passing it along to a neighbor. I believe this one has been discontinued by the manufacturer.
Terry Border Bent Objects “Spooning” 500 Piece Puzzle – Value $4.50
There is always a “For Your Human” item in Pet Treater and this month, it is this puzzle. I am having surgery in the next few months, with a long recovery time, and this could keep me busy some afternoon. (This is a closeout item that can be found at a variety of prices online.)
Bow Wow Pet Canteen Ruff & Tuff Toy – Value $4.90
Nyx enjoyed playing tug with this. It did not last a super long time (the rope ring came off) but it is size appropriate and she had fun for a few minutes, anyway. (Nyx is super destructive, to be fair. Pet Treater does not guarantee their toys are suitable for heavy chewers.) This seems to have been made by one company and printed with logos from various toy brands.
Bow Wow Pet Floppy Fish Toy – Value $5?
Nyx also enjoyed this. You can see some action shots of her with it below. She pulled one of the fins off within minutes, so again, not for heavy chewers. I couldn’t find this item for sale online so I’ve estimated based on the fact that it also seems to be discontinued, like the other toy, but has the same manufacturer on the label. (So I am assuming a similar price point.)
Health Bone Thins, Pork Liver Formula (5.29 oz) – Value $3.52
One area where Pet Treater has improved a lot this month has been with treats. These don’t expire for more than a year after I received them. They’re wheat, corn, and soy-free, and made in the United States. They have omega-3 fatty acids including DHA (omega-3 fatty acids are great for skin and coat health). Unfortunately, they contain pork, which Nyx can’t have, and also “animal plasma,” which I believe is a flavor ingredient, but I don’t know what animal it came from (I do give my cats treats with this ingredient, which they love). This will be good for dogs with grain sensitivities, anyway, though.
True Hemp Chews (7 oz) – Value $13.75
These are grain free and made in Canada (for food safety purposes, Canada is A-OK). These were not expired but the packaging has been updated from what you see in the picture. These have omega-3 fatty acids from fish, fish oil, and hemp. These should be good for heart health as well as skin and coat health.
Nyx enjoyed this fish, although she removed one of the fins pretty early on. (For the record, we’ve been to the vet for a nail trim since these pictures were taken…)
Verdict: I calculated a value of $51.65 for the August Pet Treater dog subscription box. I was pleased that the treats were so far from expiration (as well as being grain free) and Nyx did enjoy the toys, although they weren’t particularly durable.
