VetPet Box (Multi-Cat Version) July 2019 Review

Every month, VetPet Box sends toys, supplies, and wellness items:

Vet Pet Box Cat July 2019 - Booklet Back TopVet Pet Box Cat July 2019 - Booklet Front Top

Vet Pet Box Cat July 2019 - Coupons Back TopVet Pet Box Cat July 2019 - Coupons Front Top

Included was an information card with more information about the items in the box. Due to some preferences at sign-up, you may not receive every item on the card, and you may occasionally receive an item that is not listed. This month, there were also some coupons for products that have appeared in this box in the past or are related to this month’s wellness theme.

There is always educational material in a full-color, fold-out brochure that is sturdy enough for storage and later reference. There is a different theme every month (this material is considered to be one of the benefits of paying for the subscription, so it is not reproduced here). This month, it was about 4th of July safety.

Vet Pet Box Cat July 2019 - Fruitables Wildly Natural Chicken Flavor Top

Fruitables Wildly Natural Chicken Flavor (2.5 oz) – Retail Value $2.99

These are made in the USA and are free of wheat, corn, and soy (they do have barley and rice-based ingredients, though). They don’t actually have fruit, that’s just the brand name (some of the dog treats from the same brand *do* have fruit). Anyway, these are small crunchy treats and Sneaky, Madison, and Monkey all liked them.

Vet Pet Box Cat July 2019 - Fruitables Wildly Natural Tuna Flavor Top

Fruitables Wildly Natural Tuna Flavor (2.5 oz) – Retail Value $2.99

These are basically the same as the ones above except for they’re tuna-flavored instead of chicken-flavored. These were also well-liked. They come in a resealable bag that actually works so they remain fresh.

Vet Pet Box Cat July 2019 - Bird Toys Top

Hopped Up Harry the Hemp Bird by From the Field (2 count) – Retail Value $11 ($5.50 each)

You’ll get a lot of From the Field toys with this subscription but my cats absolutely love them so I am not at all sad about that. These are medium-sized hemp fabric sacks with catnip and valerian inside. Valerian is kind of stinky but it drives cats wild. Both Madison and Monkey loved these, and that’s pretty good since they’re both older cats, at 12 and 13 or so, respectively.

Vet Pet Box Cat July 2019- All for Paws Catzilla Cuddler Top

All for Paws Catzilla Cuddler – Retail Value $9.69

I will preface this by saying that my cats are not normally into large wrestler or kicker toys like this one. But this was quite possibly their favorite item in the box. Monkey got into the box while I was taking photos and licked this until it was wet. Later on, he rolled all over it on the floor. But I think Angus’s reaction was the best. He wrapped his front legs around it and wrestled with it and tried to bite its eyes off. (Yes, there are pictures below!)

Vet Pet Box Cat July 2019- Hunter Cat Collar Top

Hunter Cat Collar (2 count) – Estimated Value $12.98 ($6.49 each)

I didn’t find the same exact design online, but I did find a collar that appears to be the same style and a different design, so that’s what I’ve linked to above. This month’s wellness theme is 4th of July safety, and of course all the loud sounds are likely to spook your cat, so putting a collar on your kitty ensures that if he or she gets lost, you can be contacted. These have bells which will hopefully warn birds that a kitty is approaching, and they are breakaway and reflective for extra safety.

Vet Pet Box Cat July 2019 - Sentry Pheromone Calming Collar Top

Sentry Pheromone Calming Collar – Retail Value $25.70 (found here for $17.99)

This is sealed in an envelope that starts releasing pheromones as soon as it is opened, so I didn’t take it out of the package to photograph as that would have reduced the efficacy. This is a product that is supposed to help calm your kitty. We have used Feliway diffusers in the past and those have worked, but if your cat leaves the room where they’re plugged in, they don’t help so much. I have put this on Sneaky because she is pretty tightly wound and even seeing Angus causes her to have a fit and she has asthma and a heart murmur and I don’t want one of her fits to cause further problems. (She’s on medication for her asthma and she gets EKGs periodically to monitor the heart murmur.) It is great to get one of these to try since they are expensive, but it would be totally worth the cost to me to buy again if it works (it’s too soon to tell, I feel like I need a few days to gauge any behavioral changes). We shall see.

Angus really liked this toy a lot.

Just to be clear, rolling around on the floor is what Madison does when a toy gets him high on catnip/valerian/etc.

He also liked the treats.

Monkey rolled around on this toy a lot.

He licked this toy, but I didn’t get any great pictures of it.

And he ate the treats as well.

Sneaky, of course, lives for food.

Verdict: I calculated a total value of about $65.35 for the July VetPet Box for cats. The treats were quite popular with all three cats who can eat them, Madison and Monkey loved the hemp birds, and Monkey and Angus loved the Catzilla cuddler toy. So there was a little something for every one of my cats this month, which was great. I’m hopeful the pheromone collar will help Sneaky chill out a bit, and while my cats don’t normally wear collars in the house, I think it is useful to have them around in case we have to take them out of the house (i.e., to the vet or a specialist or some such) or if there are contractors doing work and external doors might be open for an extended time, etc.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? New subscribers usually get an introductory box. However, if you contact VetPet Box, you can get a past month’s box (like say you really want to get the dental one more than once, because your cat has bad teeth).

COUPON: Use code VetPet15MSA to save $15 off your first box!

  1. Always so nice to see happy, playful kitties! Angus seems especially pleased to be out of the cone 😉

  2. I was considering the Sentry collar for my youngest cat until I read the nightmare reviews for it on Amazon. So please be careful!!!

    • Cathy- I think you’re confusing the Calming Collar with a flea collar

      • Nope. I actually bought the calming collar BEFORE i read the reviews, so i know its the calming collar. Just look it up on Amazon

  3. Monkey is such a handsome boy.
