The box came with this information card.
Hatchables Bat-o-Lantern – Retail Value $14.99 (currently on sale for $10.99)
This is a plush toy. I was confused about the name until I realized it had an opening in the back…
This is what it looks like inside out. This one is a little on the small side for Nyx so I am probably going to pass it along to a neighbor’s dog to enjoy. It is a pretty cute idea, though.
Lucky Premium Treats Spooky Jerky Straws (3 oz) – Retail Value $6.95?
I’m not sure this is exactly the same item as this one here, but it is pretty close. These treats are single-ingredient treats with no grains (great) though the main ingredient is chicken, which can be a problem for some dogs with allergies (unfortunately, Nyx can’t have chicken because of her IBD). These are made in the US, which is really important for jerky-style treats.
Bone Polish (6 oz) – Retail Value $8.99?
These are green, dental chew-style treats. They are Pet GiftBox branded so I had to estimate the value (they offer some of their private label items in boxes, but not for sale in their shop). I estimated a value based on a similar size of Greenies. They also have similar ingredients to Greenies. Also based on Greenies size information, these are probably too small for an 87-pound dog.
Vegalicious Healthy Treat Bars, Crazy Coconut Flavor (1.2 oz) – Retail Value $2.99
This is a Canadian-made product (fine for dog treats). You can break these bars into smaller pieces so they are good for dogs of various sizes. They are grain free (they do have buckwheat, which is not related to wheat) and they are also free of animal proteins, making them excellent for dogs with limited diets. I gave Nyx a different treat this weekend, so we have to wait awhile before I can try this with her, but I don’t see anything in the ingredients to be concerned about (I just have to give her a treat and then wait to see digestive effects before trying something else; it is a slow process with her).
Zippypaws Pumpkin Spice Donut – Retail Value $7.99
Nyx loves Zippypaws toys and she has a hard time destroying them. This is a plush but like the whole inside is a single, ring-shaped squeaker. Nyx had a ball with this one and you will see evidence of that below.
Here are some photos of Nyx enjoying the donut toy.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $42 for the October Pet GiftBox for dogs. That’s a good amount over the cost of the box and the donut toy was certainly a hit. It is also nice to receive a treat that I will be able to try out with Nyx (doesn’t happen often with her IBD). However, this month was not the best for Nyx, as I felt that some of the items were too small for a large breed dog. Do remember this box is for dogs with a rather wide range of weights (50 pounds and up) and if your dog is closer to 50 pounds, the box contents this month may be more appropriate.
