Pet Treater February 2018 Review

There’s not a traditional information card with this subscription so there’s not always a stated theme, but you will usually see some commonalities running throughout the box contents. This month, I honestly wasn’t sure, but then Nyx doesn’t care about themes:

You get some pictures of dogs so that’s always fun.

There are also usually some coupons and/or vouchers.

Dog Whisperer Dog Treats Beef Lung Bites (2 oz)

Dog Whisperer Dog Treats Beef Lung Bites (2 oz) – Retail Value $10.99 (found here for $2.99)

This is a single-ingredient treat with no preservatives. Unfortunately, Nyx can’t have beef due to her IBD, so we’ll pass these along to a dog in my extended family to enjoy.

All for Paws BBQ Grillers BBQ Rubber Crunch Bone

All for Paws BBQ Grillers BBQ Rubber Crunch Bone (m) – Retail Value $15.75

This is a rubber bone with flavor infused. It also has something inside, like water bottle texture, that makes a crunch sound. This definitely has a strong odor. At any rate, Nyx really wasn’t interested in this toy and wouldn’t chew on it, which is unusual for her.

Water Bottle

Water Bottle – Estimated Value $7

This is the “for your human” item for the month. There is absolutely no identifying information on it other than the initials “JM,” which I tried searching but with no luck (too generic). This had an insert indicating it was BPA free, which is nice.

Emmy’s Gourmet Canine Creations Cookie

Emmy’s Gourmet Canine Creations Cookie – Buy 6 for $6.50

Most months, you will get a cookie from Emmy’s in Pet Treater. They’re generally seasonal. You don’t always see the same ones on the Emmy’s site, but I did find these. (This may be a clearance price since I am writing this review after Valentine’s Day, but no other pricing was available.)

Animal Planet Plush Toy with Rope and Squeaker

Animal Planet Plush Toy with Rope and Squeaker – Estimated Value $7.50

These Animal Planet toys (which you will get a lot of in Pet Treater) appear to be discontinued. I’m using the MSRP from a similar toy. This had a variety of textures, including some fuzzy hair, that Nyx really liked trying to pull off the toy.

Romeo/Juliet Kerchief

Romeo/Juliet Kerchief

Romeo/Juliet Kerchief – Estimated Value $3

This kerchief is made from some really flimsy material that wrinkles easily, as you can see. It fits Nyx (there are pictures below) but she really did not like wearing it and kept trying to get it off. In general, while I will snap a photo of Nyx in a kerchief, I tend not to put clothing on her. (I save that for the kitties.)

Wags and Wiggles Massaging Bath Mitt

Wags and Wiggles Massaging Bath Mitt – Retail Value $6.99

This is sold out everywhere but eBay, though some of the sold out prices match the eBay price, so I’m just going to list it here. This is supposed to help remove loose fur during bath time, which is definitely useful. (Nyx gets a bath with medicated shampoo every two weeks to deal with a skin condition.) You can add shampoo to a reservoir in this item, too, although it’s way too small for the amount of shampoo we have to use on a dog Nyx’s size.

Polka Dog Treats Wonder Nuggets (4 oz)

Polka Dog Treats Wonder Nuggets (4 oz) – Buy 8 oz for $7.95

These are vegan, so they are suitable for dogs with protein allergies. They do contain barley flour and rolled oats, though, so they won’t work for grain sensitive dogs. These are soft and a good size for training. Polka Dog Bakery is a small business in South Boston and a new brand for me.

Nyx spent all her time with the bone toy trying to chew on the kerchief. She liked the other toy much better.

Verdict: There were 8 items in the February 2018 Pet Treater box. I had to estimate the values for about half of them, as a lot were closeouts, sold out, not available in the provided sizes, etc. Although I can make educated guesses about the values, I don’t know how useful it is to provide a total. This subscription costs $24.99 on a month-to-month basis, so you are paying about $3.12 per item this month, which seems like a pretty good deal, even if one or two things don’t end up working for you. Large dog toys typically cost quite a bit more than $3.12 each, as do full bags of treats.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, your subscription would start with the March box.

Coupon – Use coupon code DOGBED to get a free dog bed with the first month of the Pet Treater Dog Box. Or, if you’d rather save money off of this box, use coupon code PT-5OFF to save $5.00 off your first box.

Value Breakdown: At $24.99 for the box, you are paying about $3.12 per item.

  1. Oh, how I wish I listened to the online reviews! But I like to give unknown businesses a chance, so I (regretfully) subscribe to Pet Treater.

    Before you read my rant, my main issues with Pet Treater are poor customer service, difficulty accessing online account, and they bill you even though they fail to send out your subscription!

    I ordered my first box Jan 7th and received it soon after. I was initially impressed by it, and although I knew the plush toys wouldn’t survive my rambunctious labs, the treats and pet owner gifts won me over. I even gave them a glowing review on You Tube which I regret now.

    My second box was billed Feb 7th and I waited eagerly for it’s arrival. And waited. And waited. Nothing. My online account (when I could actually log in without having to reset my password, but that’s ANOTHER issue) showed “processing, will ship soon” for the whole month of Feb!!! By March 1st there was no update and I was over it. I called the customer service number several times, left several messages and no one returned my calls. By March 7th I check my bank statement and realized Pet Treater billed me for a March box and I HADN’T RECEIVED THE FEB BOX YET!!! I tried calling again – left message and no return call. I finally went on their facebook page and messaged them and FINALLY they replied that they will let the office know and someone would contact me. SIDE NOTE…it says a lot when a company has their comments turned off on facebook. Yes, Pet Treater does not allow you to leave a public comment. Hmmm, I wonder why?

    Anywho, no one called me, but I received an email March 8th stating they’ve cancelled my subscription and will refund my March charge (today’s March 13th, so still waiting for that refund to hit). BUT I STILL HAVEN’T RECEIVE THE FEB BOX I PAID FOR! So, I’ve emailed them…AGAIN, to see if they will refund my feb money or send a box. If not resolved I will definitely contact the Better Business Bureau.

    I’ll just stick with Bullymake and Bark Box!
