May 2014 PetBox Review

Last week we received our May PetBox.  It was a few days late, but PetBox was quick with their communication explaining why this is so.  I was happy with them emailing me to explain the situation.  This month, I did not choose to pick my own, I wanted to be surprised. The review for the April PetBox, in which I hand selected all items, can be read HERE.

The Goods

My Little Wolf Turkey Bliss Treats.  Approximate retail value $10.31  Grain free soft treats with decent ingredients.  We received some treats from this line in our April PetBox, which I selected because Faolan means "Little Wolf."  Unfortunately, my little wolf didn't care for those treats, but Neeko and Bruce gobble them right up.  I am still happy to have received these, and am hopeful that Faolan will be more receptive to them as they are turkey-based.

Slurp N Fresh Oral Hygiene Solution.  Approximate retail value $13.24.  While this actually has good ingredients, it is not something I would normally buy.  My dogs have pretty fresh breath and clean teeth, thanks to their raw diet.  I will be donating this, or gifting it to someone.

Sweet Pea Oh My Apple Pie dog treats.  Approximate retail value $6.99.  These are limited ingredient, biscuit type cookies with simple ingredients.  They are vegan, which means very little to me, as I am of the belief that dogs are carnivores.  I am still undecided as to whether or not to keep or give these away, as I am fairly certain Faolan will not like them.

Blue Dog Bakery Softies.  Approximate retail value $3.58.  Any peanut butter soft treat is a hit in my house, with all three dogs.  Unfortunately Bruce cannot have these, because they do contain brewers yeast, and he is allergic to yeast.  But I am pleased to have received these, and Faolan (treat snob) has already shown that he is a fan of these.  Win.

Slurpabowls, 6 pack.  Unknown retail value.  This is a clever concept.  Water resistant cardboard bowls that fold up small.  They can easily fit in a purse or a pocket.  They can be pitched, or reused.  Each bowl holds two cups of water.  I am sure these will come in handy this summer, if I am out with one of the dogs and don't feel like carrying the doggy backpack with our fabric water bowl, amongst other things.

Dura-Brite Ball.  Unknown retail value.  This is a ball within a ball.  It has a tennis ball core, that is covered with a rubber "open" ball.  The outer rubber would be easily chewed off by my crew, so we won't be keeping this one for ourselves.  Also, this toy is made in China, and I am kind of disappointed in PetBox for that.

The Honest Kitchen Quickies.  Approximate retail value $9.99.  I am a huge fan of THK, and am very pleased to have received these treats.  Only one ingredient (wild caught haddock) is present in these treats.  They are also a cute little heart shape, and the tube fits easily fits in my pocket or purse.  The smell is very enticing to dogs.  Whats great about these treats is they can also be given to cats, and I think my chickens would like them as well.

Overall, I like this month's PetBox.  We received seven products, which is more than I have ever received in a subscription box.  I think one might have been a bonus product because of the delay in getting the boxes out.  To try PetBox for yourself, click HERE.

  1. Out of all the treats, the Sweet Pea Oh My Apple is the only one that we've tried. The boys ate them, but Bentley will eat almost anything. : )

  2. Wow that sue was a box of goodies. Happy Farther's day to your daddy and have a lovely serene Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Nice! The Pet Box is so cool! After my other subscriptions run out, I might try one of these!
    Happy weekend!

  4. Those look like some great treats. I would love to get Quickies for the pups, but those treats are out of my price range :P


Thanks for the howls!!
