Pet Treater February 2019 Review
There’s not a traditional information card with this subscription so there’s not always a stated theme, but you will occasionally see some commonalities running throughout the box contents (there was sort of a Valentine’s Day theme this month):
There isn’t an item list with this subscription (it is my understanding some items may vary), but you usually get a picture of a dog. There’s also sometimes an ad or a bit of product literature.
Cookie from Emmy’s Gourmet Canine Creations – Buy a Box of 4 for $5
You’ll get one of these almost every month. If they are seasonal, they may be available for purchase (this one was) but sometimes they are custom for the box as well. What I like here is that they are new and fresh and there is an ingredients list (which is not something I can say for every box that sends dog cookies from small bakeries).
Boone K9 Jerky Sticks with Real Chicken (6 oz) – Retail Value $4.95
This is a new brand for me. If you do some digging, you find out they are made in Thailand. I have not heard anything about treats made in Thailand, which probably means there is nothing wrong with them. They are not just plain chicken but do have some added flavors and texture ingredients. The expiration date was pretty far into the future.
This looked really familiar to me and I figured out why. They sent the exact same one in the February 2018 box. I don’t necessarily mind getting some repeat items in boxes (especially treats Nyx can have, or backups for toys she’s destroyed), but I don’t really need two of the same Valentine’s Day kerchief.
I wonder if these are being discontinued if that’s why they’re marked down 75%? I am pretty sure, on the other hand, that I have received this treat in Barkbox in the past, and it is a brand that definitely appears in other dog subscription boxes as well. These have pineapple and pork and although they are not grain free, they are free of wheat, corn, and soy, and they are made and sourced in the USA.
Wetnoz Go Fetch Spring Roll (large)
I definitely received the large sized one of these (they also come in small and medium) but I can’t find the large one for sale online. I found a lot of the small one, and at wildly different prices depending on the color (see here for one example). Anyway, this rolls and it has a hole in the center where you can put a treat (the jerky from this box might be a good one to try). For Nyx, due to her dietary issues, we just put a little peanut butter in there and it keeps her busy (plus it is easy to wash).
Petlou 14” Unicorn (Pearl) – Retail Value $15.22
I couldn’t find this particular variety online, but I found several others of the same size (one linked to above) that were all listed for this price, so I figured it was a good estimate. I guess the horn is supposed to make this a unicorn? It looks more like a bear or something to me. Oh well. Nyx doesn’t care what it looks like. She quickly found a squeaker that I didn’t even know was there (it has a lower pitch than most dog toys and is slightly less annoying as a result). And it seems to be holding up to rough play pretty well, too.
Nyx is still enjoying the unicorn toy even after several play sessions.
Verdict: There were 6 items in the February 2019 Pet Treater box, for an average value of about $4.17. I couldn’t find everything online and/or sold individually, although if you want to buy the treats in bulk, that is definitely an option for both the cookies and the Tiki Treats. I am impressed with the longevity of the unicorn toy; usually, Nyx manages to destroy these in a few minutes. Not really sure we needed another of the same kerchief; I guess they printed up a bunch last year and had some left over. But overall, this was a pretty good box for us.
