Unboxing the May 2013 Pawalla Mini Box

1. Lucky Dog - Peanut Butter and Berry Amazing, 12 oz 

Full size cost: $13.99 for 2 12 oz bags
Estimated retail value $7.00

These treats are made with 100% natural ingredients. I appreciate that these treats are free of corn, wheat, soy, preservatives and artificial colors. The nutritional information states that each treat is 23 calories with a minimum of 29% crude fat! Due to the high calorie and fat content, I will sparingly give these treats to our dog. 

2. Earth Heart Canine Calm Spray, 2 oz
Retail value $12.98


This spray is an interesting concept - it's a natural remedy to help calm dogs. It contains bergamot, tangerine, lavender and ylang ylang essential oils to promote stress reduction. I appreciate that this spray is packaged in a BPA-free container.

Retail value $6.99

These treats are also made with 100% natural ingredients. I appreciate that these treats are free of grains, preservatives, artificial flavors and colors. These treats are 9 calories each, so these contain too many calories to be used as a training treat for our small dog, but would be nice as a 'once a day' treat. We adopted our dog from a shelter, so I appreciate that Wigzi donates a portion of their profits to animal rescue groups and shelters.

4. Amazing Pet Rope Ball, 3.75 inch diameter

Retail value $5.99

This rope toy is made of durable material and helps to clean teeth, exercise gums and remove plaque. I like that it is machine washable. Unfortunately, we were sent the largest size, which is not size-appropriate for our small dog (the rope toy is almost as large as our dog's entire head)! Also, according to the toy label, it was made in China. This toy will be donated.


Summary:

Total estimated retail value: $32.96

Product tally:
Lifestyle = 1
Treats = 2
Toys = 1


Verdict:
Size: I was happy that we received 4 full size items!

Products: We received a good variety of high-quality products this month. Our dog is most excited about the Wigzi Tasties Treats. I am most excited to try the Earth Heart Canine Calm Spray. As mentioned previously, I am disappointed by the Amazing Pet 3.75 inch Rope Ball as it is not size-appropriate for our small dog. I appreciate that all the edible goods were made in the USA and made with 100% natural ingredients.

Value: Good. We received over $32 worth of products this month. Normally, pawalla mini boxes are $18 to $20 per month. We purchased a 3-month pawalla mini subscription on Fab for $38.
