VetPet Box (Multi-Cat Version) September 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 hairballs.  Madison and Monkey have a lot to tell you about hairballs. Like did you know 5:40 AM is a great time to have one? That way the people wake up and can’t get back to sleep before the alarm goes off.

 

On to the items:

Feline Greenies, Chicken, Hairball Control (2.1 oz) – Retail Value $2.99 (found here for $2.34)

These have fiber that is supposed to help in conjunction with a hairball control diet. Unfortunately neither Madison nor Monkey eats a hairball control diet. Monkey requires a prescription urinary diet and Madison eats a calorie control diet, not because he needs to lose weight, but because he literally refuses everything else. So I am probably not getting the full benefit of these treats. (I haven’t mentioned Sneaky but she has short hair and has never thrown up a hairball.) These are low in calories, crunchy on the outside, and softer on the inside. All three of my cats do like them.

Feline Greenies, Tuna, Hairball Control (2.1 oz) – Retail Value $2.99 (found here for $2.34)

Here is another flavor. Since this is the multi-cat box, there are usually several bags of treats. My kitties also like these pretty well. They don’t smell too bad even though they are tuna flavored. If you are worried about artificial food dyes, you don’t have to be with these, the color comes from fruit and/or vegetable juice. Also I don’t know why this is but for a lot of cat treats from different brands, chicken is color-coded orange and tuna is color-coded blue (salmon is usually reddish or pinkish). I guess that makes flavors easier to identify.

VetriScience Pro Line Feline Furball Pro (3.17 oz) – Retail Value $17

These are so expensive because they’re considered to be a dietary supplement rather than just a treat. This product line is typically only distributed by vets’ offices, but you know how you can find tons of stuff like this on Amazon these days. These have psyllium fiber which is supposed to help the passage of materials through the digestive tract. If you give your cat a lot of fiber like in treats like this and hairball control food, make sure plentiful water is available as well. These also have some flax oil and fish oil, which may also help with hairballs. We have been giving these to Madison and Monkey for a few days and it’s hard to say whether they work yet because the weather is getting cooler so they’re not shedding as much. (We’ve also been giving them to Sneaky because she paces back and forth while the other kitties get them and she tries to steal…) This is about one week’s worth for two cats so I probably won’t be buying more, but it’ll be nice if I get even a few days’ worth of relief from having to spot-clean the carpet! (These are soft or semi-moist, by the way, and do tend to dry out fast once the bag is open.)

 

Kong Zoom Groom – Retail Value $9.99 (found here for $6.49)

Monkey tolerates this better than he does a regular comb, which is something. It removes loose hairs but it isn’t really a detangler. Monkey’s hair is such a mess most of the time that we have to cut out large knots with scissors but this, used regularly, should help get rid of some of the loose hairs that he swallows when he grooms. You can see what it looks like after a few passes over Monkey in the second picture.

Fat Cat Showgulls (x2) – Retail Value $9.98 ($4.99 each)

Fat Cat toys are well-liked by my cats, especially Monkey, who licks them until they are wet. These also have feathers, so Madison is interested. And they’re small so the cats can toss them around, even when I’m not around. I don’t think I’ve seen this particular toy in a subscription box before, either.

Multipet Felted Ball with Feather

I couldn’t find this for sale with an actual price listed anywhere. This is mostly a Monkey toy as he likes to bat around small balls. (Angus would’ve loved this as well. Can you believe he’s been gone six months already? Doesn’t seem that long ago.) I’ve gone ahead and done the value breakdown without it because it’s probably only a couple of bucks, at most. (But simple toys are great when it comes to cats!)

Fat Cat Kitty Kickz, Mice Cream Cone – Retail Value $5.99 (found here for $5.68)

This box was really a box designed for Monkey, I think. This is another toy he loves. He goes into the home office in the morning as that’s where the sun is at that time of day and he plays with toys on the floor right where the light comes in through the window. He especially likes kickers at that time, which is funny since he’s 14 years old and you’d expect he’d slow down at some point. He also licks this one; it is from Fat Cat after all.

Verdict: I calculated a total value of about $48.94 for the September VetPet Box for cats. That doesn’t include the feather ball, which easily puts the value up above $50. It isn’t necessarily the highest value I’ve ever seen for this box, but it does beat the month-to-month cost of the box and the health items were particularly useful for Monkey, especially, and Madison, who both get hairballs fairly often, being older, longhaired boys. The toys were also well-liked. Sneaky will have to content herself with eating hairball treats though she doesn’t get hairballs but it would be odd to get a themed box for her problems (asthma and heartworm).

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!

  • Furball pro treats $15.63
  • Kong groomer $9.19

  1. Such beautiful photos! I have two of the purple combs/brushes. I bought them for a particular baby who didn’t like the brushes that I already have. They do a pretty good job, but would I recommend the “Love Glove” that I found on Amazon over everything that I’ve tried so far. I would like to find a left hand Love Glove as well…and I did try the new-ish silicone dishwashing gloves, but the material is too soft to use as a “brush”.
