The box came with this information card.
Tea Pet 6 Assorted Bags – Value $5.06 (buy a 16-count box of any one of these flavors for $13.50)
These are herbal teas for dogs. And they really have herbal tea ingredients like chamomile, rooibos, and lemongrass. Nyx associates the scent of lemongrass with punishment because I spray her with citronella when she misbehaves (citronella is extracted from lemongrass species)…but anyway, if you were wondering how that sounds good to dogs, these also have bacon, chicken, and beef in them (one meat per flavor). I am pretty sure Nyx would love this, but I’m a little afraid of what it will do to her IBD so I’ll be passing these along to some other dog lovers for their pets to enjoy.
Paws Pizzeria Dog Pizza (5.5 oz) – Value $10
The primary ingredients here are chicken and sweet potatoes, though there are a few starches as well (it’s grain free, though, and everything is made and sourced in the US). This is kind of big to give all at the same time, but you can break it into smaller pieces for your dog to enjoy over the course of a few days. The boxes are also made from recycled material.
Le Petit Treat Coq au Vin (8 oz) – Value $9.99
These are heart-shaped cookies that are grain free and soy free. It also has apples, beets, and rosemary (no actual wine, though!). We received treats from this brand in several different dog subscription boxes this month. Although Nyx can’t have chicken, she definitely liked the peanut butter ones we got elsewhere, so if your dog *can* have chicken and likes hard cookies, you should know that this brand, in general, seems to use good quality ingredients. Use fairly quickly after opening since there are no preservatives.
Zippypaws Nomnoms Croissant – Value $6.99
This is on the small side for Nyx (but not too small). We get a lot of Zippypaws plushes in dog subscription boxes and I have to say, they usually hold up pretty well for plushes (Nyx is a destructive chewer for sure). I had no idea what this was supposed to be until I looked at the information card (I thought it was a crab for some reason?) but now that I know it is supposed to be a croissant, I can kind of see it. You can see some photos of Nyx enjoying it below.
SPOT Mini Skinneez Lamb – Value $7.90
This is a stuffing-free dog toy that Nyx seems to enjoy. I really have to watch her with it because she can stuff most of it in her mouth at one time, so do be careful if your dog is on the larger side. I definitely appreciate the lack of stuffing, though, because Nyx can’t pull out and eat stuffing that isn’t there.
Here are some photos of Nyx enjoying the croissant toy.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $39.94 for the September Pet GiftBox for dogs. That’s almost $15 over the cost of the box and I definitely discovered some new products this time around. Nyx enjoyed the toys quite a lot and even though the treats were off limits, you have to remember that she has an EXTREMELY limited diet due to her IBD and the treats will definitely be OK for most dogs, even a lot of dogs with food allergies. I thought the treats were off the beaten path this month, which was also fun.
