VetPet Box (Multi-Cat Version) August 2020 Review

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

You always get a pamphlet with information on a health topic. This month’s topic is related to first aid and emergency visits. Sadly, we are all too familiar with emergency vet visits. Like when Mr. Kitty’s eye ruptured or when Angus pulled out two of his toenails, or when Monkey had lower urinary tract disease, or when Mouse (you all never met her as she passed away in 2012) had a clogged feeding tube. In fact, Sneaky and Madison are the only 2 out of the 6 cats I’ve had who haven’t been to the emergency vet. (Luckily they are not far at all from my house…) Sheesh.

 

There was also some product literature.

On to the items:

 

First Aid Kit – Retail Value $39.99

I have some first aid items from getting this subscription for awhile and from having cats like Mr. Kitty and Angus with *problems.* But I actually didn’t have a lot of the items from this kit so it is nice to get them all in one convenient package. I really hope I never have to use the tourniquet! But I do feel better having it on hand. I also like the little packets of antibiotic ointment — I can’t use this type of product on myself because I have a skin reaction to it. And big tubes get wasted if I just keep them around for the animals. Also I don’t really want to use my eyebrow tweezers on a cat. But this collects a lot of handy things in one place.

Da Bird Super Refill – Retail Value $12.99 (found here for $7.99)

Somewhere I have a wand for these but it actually works pretty well as just a feather toy on its own. Sneaky chewed on the feathers (couldn’t get a good picture of it) but they are still attached so I guess it is well made. This is one I would probably put away when I wasn’t around, though, just in case.

From the Field Shelby the Hemp Mouse – Retail Value $11.85

I really like toys from this brand. They make Madison go crazy, which I like to see, since he has been something of a stick in the mud lately. At any rate, this made him very excited and he spent quite awhile rolling around on top of this, all over the floor. He wouldn’t let the other cats have access to it.

Feline Greenies Dental Treats Tempting Tuna (2.5 oz) – Retail Value $2.99 (found here for $2.37)

These are crunchy treats that are supposed to help clean your cat’s teeth while they are being chewed. I don’t know if that really works or not because the three cats I have right now have pretty good teeth. They do all like these, though. (I think it’s kind of funny that the product page says they are good for life stage “adult 1-10 years” as my cats are 12, 13, and 14 and I don’t think special treats are made for senior kitties. But these worked fine. Also they don’t smell bad.)

Mad Cat Purrito Kicker – Retail Value $7.99

Although kickers are typically Monkey items, Mad Cat toys (with silvervine and catnip) are Madison items. Madison did roll on this, although he was already pretty loopy from the hemp mouse toy. It is a little crinkly (the foil “wrapping”) and I also think it is adorable. This is on the large side but not the largest kicker I have seen. Anyway, it was a hit with my crew.

Henry Schein Lean Treats (3.5 oz) – Retail Value $3.35

These are semi-moist treats that are supposed to be good for maintaining weight (e.g., low in calories). I actually have the opposite problem, in that Monkey and Madison should probably put on a little weight, but being honest, Sneaky is going to be eating most of those anyway (before and after her asthma treatments), and she is kind of chunky these days. All three cats liked these quite a bit.

Verdict: I calculated a total value of about $79.16 for the August VetPet Box for cats. That’s a really good value for this box, I think. It was a nice mix of useful items (like the first aid kit) and fun items (like the toys and treats, all of which were appreciated). One thing this box is really good at is picking toys the cats will actually play with, even seniors like my three. The treats are also generally quite well-received, and I have stocked up on some useful supplies thanks to VetPet Box 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!

Value Breakdown: At $45 for the multi-cat box, you are paying approximately the following per item:

  • First aid kit $22.73
  • Feather toy $7.38
  • Hemp mouse $6.74
  • Greenies treats $1.70
  • Burrito toy $4.54
  • Lean treats $1.90
