    Poor quality control

    By on

    I ordered one of the med pods and we could not get the included clamps to go onto the box by hand no matter how hard we tried. My husband tried to tap one onto the pod with a hammer and the edge of the pod broke off. Chewys sent me a replacement and six different people at my office, including a mechanical engineer, tried to put the clamps on the box with no success. This 2nd box was also warped and one corner would not close all the way leaving a 1/3" gap. Chewy issued a complete refund but this is not a product that should have such sloppy QC problems as it just added to the grief of an already traumatic experience of losing a beloved pet of 21 years.

    Pretty and well made

    By on

    When our cat was diagnosed with cancer, we decided on a natural burial when it was time to say goodbye, which happened much sooner than we expected unfortunately. The pod is sturdy and well-made, pretty, and snaps closed tightly. The medium was the perfect size for our 12 lb boy. We lined our pod with Chewy packing paper (he loved that more than the famous boxes) and had enough room at the tops and sides to add flowers. This is the first time I've had the luxury of a planned goodbye for one of my pets. The pod was a beautiful piece of our send off, and allowed us to do something special for him one last time.

    The small is too small and medium is really big

    By on

    The small is too small and medium is really big. They need a size in between the small and medium. My chihuahua weighs about 6 lbs, and I could fit at least 4 in the medium pod. I have no choice, but to keep the medium! Unless you have a 2-3 lb teacup furry friend, you will need the medium size. Otherwise, the product is well made, and biodegradable. Love the customer service at Chewy.com

    Perfect but...

    By on

    It itself was perfect! But I was unsure what size too get. Just letting anyone know in the unfortunate circumstance, this size is perfect for an adult rat. And our flowers sprouted from it within two weeks. This made losing him ALOT easier to cope with all around an very well thought out product.

    Appears perfect

    By on

    I hope I don't have to use this for a LONG time, but it appears to be exactly what I will need when the time comes. Felt insensitive when I bought it, but the WONDERFUL Chewy folks assured me I wasn't and it was just good planning.

    Great product, but....

    By on

    Love the durability of product. Only thing fasteners are not well made. Was supposed to come with four, received three and the fourth was broken. While trying to fasten, one broke so only had 2 to fasten. Ended up using cable ties to make sure pod was shut tight.
