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):

Pet Treater February 2019 - Booklet Front Pet Treater February 2019 - Booklet Back Pet Treater February 2019 - Ad Front Pet Treater February 2019 - Ad Back

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.

Pet Treater February 2019 - Cookie

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).

Pet Treater February 2019 - Jerky

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.

Pet Treater February 2019 - Kerchief 1 Pet Treater February 2019 - Kerchief 2

Romeo/Juliet Kerchief

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.

Pet Treater February 2019 - Tiki

Healthy Dogma Tiki Treats (5 oz) – Buy 6 Bags for $35.70 (found here for $9)

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.

Pet Treater February 2019 - Toy 1 Pet Treater February 2019 - Toy 2

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).

Pet Treater February 2019 - Unicorn

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.

  1. oh, no, no, no…i am positive this sub says the treats they send out are all from canada or the US…

    wth is something from thailand doing in there…?!?

    • Hey Tammy!

      Our website says mostly from the US or Canada, but never from China. These are are made in Thailand, and we haven’t had any issues with some items being from there. But we are pretty selective about our treats.

      Thank you!

  2. Are the dog treats chewy or crunchy? My dog only eats the chewy kind and that is a fabulous deal so I’d love to buy some!

    • I don’t have the bag with me at the moment but they don’t have any of the ingredients typical of soft treats. (Nyx can’t have grains and they do have some grains — usually indicative of cookie-like treats — so I’ll be passing the treats along to a coworker or relative with a dog.)

  3. I got that bear-pig-unicorn in the small bag version of this sub and my dog fell in love. He took it everywhere with him and I got quite a few adorable pictures. It has the deep squeaker in the body (sounded like a pig grunt to me) and high pitched ones in the feet I didn’t know about. Then after a few days he decided that was enough and proceeded to remove all of the stuffing. Lol. At least it was clumpy so easy to clean up!

    • LB, I’m so glad to hear your dog loved the Unicorn! We loved it too!

      Thanks!
