VetPet Box (Multi-Cat Version) January 2020 Review

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

I did not receive an information card this month. There is also 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 was about dental health. They seem to do a dental health box about once a year but that is fine by me because it is an issue that affects one of my cats quite a bit (Angus).

There was also a letter indicating that you can buy some of the items in the box from the new VetPet Box shop. You’ll find some links there to products in the review below.

 

And there was a brochure from one of the brands in the box, which offers several oral health products for dogs and cats.

Vetradent Water Additive from Dechra (17 fl oz) – Retail Value $18.99 (on sale for $13.99)

I am pretty excited about this. I have tried water additives for a dog I used to have but there was a strong flavor (or so I assume, based on the scent) that would likely turn cats away. I also like that this doesn’t have any of the ingredients that aggravate Angus’s IBD, because Angus has bad teeth (he’s had one dental cleaning and we’re working on his obesity problem so that it’s safe for him to do anesthesia again). I am waiting to give this to him until he is out of his cone, though. (He got into a little tiff with Madison and ended up losing, best I can tell, though there were no witnesses. We used several first aid products from past VetPet Boxes to clean him up and stop the bleeding.)

 

Feline Greenies Oven Roasted Chicken Flavor (2.5 oz) – Retail Value $2.99 (on sale for $2.49)

These are crunchy treats that are supposed to help clean the teeth as they get chewed. Most of them are going to Sneaky, for whom they might be beneficial since she usually eats wet food. But I am not sure that she actually chews! Anyway, she does like them and they help us get her into the bathroom for her asthma treatments.

 

Dechra Dentees Stars (4 oz) – Retail Value $14.99 (on sale for $11.99)

I had never come across these before. They are dental treats but because they’re a little large for your typical cat, the cat is actually forced to chew. Even Sneaky, despite what I said about her just above. I wish I could give them to Angus but they do contain wheat starch and wheat protein and, unfortunately, we have to avoid wheat products with Angus.

From the Field Silvervine Sticks – Retail Value $6.99 (on saale for $5.99)

From the Field products are always huge hits in my household. Silvervine is a plant that attracts cats — in some cases, more than catnip. Madison has always been a huge responder to silvervine and he did like these, although I couldn’t get him to bite one for a picture. I think these will be “supervision only” toys because I’m not sure how they hold up over time. We will see.

Yeowww! Heart Attack – Retail Value $7.99

Yeowww! toys are some of the best out there in terms of sustaining long-term interest from cats (including my three seniors). They must really have some strong catnip. This one also has two different textures, although sometimes little bits of the fuzzier side come off on the carpet.

Yeowww! Catnip Cigar – Retail Value $3.99

I think this was my cats’ favorite item in the box. While I was doing some work on this review prior to taking cat pictures, Angus (pre-cone) and Monkey kept getting in the box and trying to take this out. Monkey licked it a lot during photo time (didn’t make for great pictures but he sure enjoyed himself). And it made Madison go crazy and roll all over the floor. I’d say that was a win.

From the Field Catnip Spice Essentials Catnip and Silvervine Pellets (74g) – Estimated Value $5.49

The sizes I could find for sale were in ounces and this was in grams, but this is close to 2 ounces (it’s a little higher). These are compressed pellets of catnip and silvervine. I find them quite nice for refreshing scratch pads because they fit in the cardboard base of the pads I buy they’re not as messy as ground up leaves.

Pet Toothbrushes – Retail Value $5.99 (on sale for $1.79)

I’m calling the small one a bonus; it is probably meant to go with the item below. I did find the big one for sale online. I am a little afraid to try brushing Angus’s teeth (right now we do a chlorhexidine rinse) but honestly, he’d probably put up with it for a minute or two. Some of the others sort of need it as well but I’m not sure how easy it would be to brush Sneaky’s teeth. I’d probably end up needing stitches.

Virbac CET Enzymatic Toothpaste, Poultry Flavor (0.4 oz x 2) – Buy 2.5 oz for $9.44

I’ve linked to a full-size product but I don’t think this is available for retail sale in sample packets. This goes with the toothbrushes. This product also comes in other flavors. Most are meat flavors and contain meat digests, so if I am going to brush Angus’s teeth, it’s probably going to be with vanilla-mint because that one is unlikely to have meat. But, I know this is a product recommended by (and sold by) my vet for both dogs and cats.

Gratuitous cat pictures:

 

Verdict: I calculated a total value of about $67.42 for the January VetPet Box for cats. That’s a great value for this box, and honestly for any cat box, at more than $20 over the month-to-month cost of the box. I appreciated the variety of approaches to oral health and I learned about some new products, including the rinse, which will even work for Angus. The toys and treats were hits as well.

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!
