    Promising review: "So I've been really scared to cut my dog's nails myself. I still haven't tried to cut my large dobie's nails, but I used the small set of clippers for my little rat terrier. She has white, clear nails. I learned some tricks for checking to make sure you don't catch a vein online (best suggestion was to look under the nail, and my vet recommended to cut even with the toes - no shorter). First time went smoothly and I didn't need to styptic powder. I'm so relieved! This is going to save me a ton of money on trips to the groomer." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $8.03

    2. A pet hair remover for the pet lover who doesn't *love* having hair all over their house. There's no better way to keep the sweaters you've been pulling out for fall in mint condition than swiping them over with one of these.

    Promising review: "This thing is so easy to use and most importantly, IT WORKS!!!!! My dog is a double-coated long=haired Aussie/golden mix so the fur just floats through our house. I will still keep the lint rollers around, but this is an awesome tool to have in the fur battle arsenal. This will definitely save money and sanity and reduce the "OMG your house is so furry eww" comments from my non-pet-owning friends. Maybe they'll even sit on my furniture. Maybe." —🌟 Emma Elizabeth 🌟

    Price: $24.95

    3. A professional strength stain and odor eliminator because there's nothing worse than a smelly house. It has incredible reviews and is gentle enough not to further damage your carpet or upholstery but strong enough to get the job done.

    Promising review: "I have two cats who peed and pooped on my carpet because I left for a while due to military. So with them being upset they 'acted out.' I followed the instructions they sent in the email, along with what was on the back of the bottle. Now to truly test the products 'odor eliminating' claims, I left the house for a few hours to see if I could smell the urine upon return. About five to six hours later there is still no smell except for what the product scent is. Very Satisfied with this product. Will continue to use. Saved a lot of money and trouble with this company." —Rachel Simmons

    Price: $19.97+ (available in two sizes)

    4. An automatic self-cleaning hooded litter box so your pet can have privacy while they do their business and you won't have to deal with the cleanup. Plus, it has leak protection and odor control. What more could you ask for from a litter box?

    Promising review: "So far the cats seem to love it. It provides entertainment plus a tidy box for them to do their business in. I would recommend getting the Forever Tray ($50 on Amazon) instead of the disposable trays that come with the ScoopFree. It's expensive upfront, but will save you money overall since the disposable trays don't last too long and are $15 each. With the Forever Tray you only need to pay for crystal litter which you can get anywhere." —K

    Price: $169.95 (available in four styles and three colors)

    5. A pet grooming kit that will keep your pet feeling safe and protected while you take care of their necessary hygiene process. It comes with a zip pouch, electric hair trimmer, and seven combs so you can be sure your pup's hair is at the proper length.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this product in hopes of saving some money on grooming costs. My dog wasn't afraid of the groomer or traditional grooming tools. I thought with the way this product functions it would be easy enough for me to try at home. I was right! I have groomed my dog twice with great results. By the second grooming, I had more confidence on how much to cut and I would only assume it would improve from here. I have a 7lb. Yorkie and I will say I haven't found a way to use this around the face and legs. What I have been doing is either taking the clip off and using the scissors or a secondary pair of scissors to use around the face and legs. With two groomings under my belt, this item has already paid for itself! For the low cost of this product, I would highly recommend this for anyone to try. In fact, I have recommended to all of my friends. Especially those with multiple dog households. For me, I don't think this will completely replace the groomer. I'll probably head over a couple of times a year for a professional cut but this will and has already saved me a substantial amount of money!" —J.B. Shopper

    Price: $39.95 (available in two styles and two colors)

    6. A Wi-Fi-controlled treat-tossing camera for the dog who's not easily amused and needs a little extra entertainment. Plus, it's Wi-Fi-operated so you can watch your pup and join in on the fun!

    Promising review: " I knew I loved my Furbo before today but today it proved itself a lifesaver (or wallet saver I guess). I came home to see my dog with a rat in her mouth. After releasing it outside and praising her for catching it I began dreaming out how the heck a rat got in in the first place. I decided to review videos on Furbo. Well as you can see my dog brought in the rat!!! So thank you Furbo for saving me all the money I was about to go and spend on rat traps and pest control!! Also, we love checking on the dogs during the day and giving them treats =) the cats also love the treats!" —Erin

    Price: $199.00

    7. An orthopedic plush sofa, because some pets need a little extra comfort. It's a perfect solution for older dogs or pets suffering from arthritis. Make your pet as happy and comfortable as possible with this orthopedic bed.

    Promising review: "Dog beds are expensive. This one isn't. My dogs have been using this bed for the last two months and it has held up well. Other dog beds cost twice as much as this one, I can't imagine they are that much better. Save your money and buy this one instead." —DJA

    Price: $54.99 (available in six sizes, five styles, and 15 colors)

    8. A rechargeable electric nail trimmer so you can save yourself a trip to the vet every time your pet's nails get unruly. It'll save you major money on grooming costs, too.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have three pugs with varying degrees of drama when it comes to nail trimming. The stay at home order had me faced with trimming nails by myself. I decided to try a grinder. The research led me to this one. Not too loud. Easy to handle and clean. Strong enough motor. I started out slow and would just do no longer than five seconds of pressure on the grinder at a time. We are finally getting a routine down and I doubt I’ll take them to the vet for nail trimming again. The grinding also leaves the nail smoother than a clip. Saving money and now that the nail is the correct length I just need to maintain the nail. A really great purchase." —Diana G

    Price: $29.99 (available in two colors)

    9. A pet hair removal brush that is an incredible way to combat pet dander and keep your house looking tidy. It has a squeegee and telescoping handle that extends so it can reach the smallest and farthest of spaces, too, so you'll know it's doing the job right.

    Promising review: "This broom does what a vacuum can't! With some elbow grease, I saved money and electricity! Even my stair carpet looks groomed! I did short brush strokes and collected fur into small piles. I used my vacuum's tube to suck all the fur piles up so that it was less work for the vacuum." —curveballamu

    Price: $12.98

    10. A deodorizing pet grooming brush for the pet who isn't always the most clean. If you're worried about your pet tracking dirt or bacteria into the home, this is the product for you.

    Promising review: "We have a 2-year-old girl, so I purchased this brush to reduce the number of bacteria on our dog. It is really easy to use. Compared to chemical sterilization, this brush saved me so much money and time to make our dog more hygienic. I no longer worry about bacteria and odors from my dog." —Angel Shaffer

    Price: $26.39 (available in two colors)

    11. A pet gate with small door, because sometimes you need to keep your pets confined to certain areas of the house and keeping them out doesn't have to be hard!

    Promising review: "Save your money, this is perfect. I can't believe the prices for some of these other carriers. This is perfect. Sturdy, easy to assemble, etc. Not a cheap piece of plastic. It's great and reasonably priced!" —Sadie

    Price: $26.90 (available in three sizes and three colors)

    13. A pet botanics training reward that are an ideal way to keep your pet's bad habits at bay and even help them pick up a few new tricks on the road to positive reinforcement.

    Promising review: "Great training treat. Using these saves money because they cost almost 2X as much as competitors. I have a subscription and it is very economical." —A. J. Leitell

    Price: $12.74 (available in three styles, five flavors, and five sizes)

    14. An all-weather mesh harness for any kind of pet that loves the great outdoors. It's soft and breathable and has three safety features, making it an excellent choice among dog and cat owners alike.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The product had no issues, although I had to order another different large size because my dog was outgrown it too quickly, if you have small do the smaller size should be fine but if you have a large breed puppy, I advise you to monitor the change in size and order a bit larger because it will save you time and money." —daniel Ayoub

    Price: $13.99 (available in seven sizes and 27 colors)

    15. A bottle of calming hemp oil for pets because we could all use a little help chilling out sometimes, including your pets. It's a great way to combat anxiety and soothe nervous pets, no matter the situation.

    A reviewer's image of the pet hemp oil bottle
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this hemp oil for my dogs and cat. I have a few seniors and a dog with separation anxiety. Instant fix for all. One of my senior dog's legs would shake randomly. the shaking has stopped. The paw licking for my other senior has stopped. They all act like puppies again. My dog with separation anxiety has stopped chewing significantly. She pretty much sticks to her bully stick now. I tried another brand that was good but I was going through it so fast. I’m happy I gave this one a chance too. Better value for the money." —C. J. Ling

    Price: $19.89

    16. A pack of dog flea and tick prevention so both you and your pet will be protected from the inevitable invasion of pests. It's an easy solution to a problem before it becomes a problem. Also, it's super easy to administer and fast-acting.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve reordered this box twice now for my two Labradors and the fleas cycle has ended in our home. Of course when the weather is warmer and flea might hitch a ride into the home (no flea medication repels fleas), but they're sure to die after one bite of the pet. We’re a completely flea free household, thanks to PetArmor and we’re saving money over what we would pay for Frontline." —Robert Cox

    Price: $35.09 (available in four sizes)

    17. An extreme weather dog and cat door that's a great way to save on heating costs while making sure your pet has access to the outdoors while they need it. If you're out and about during the days, this is an incredible investment to make sure your pet gets the outdoor time they need.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got this to replace my current cat door, which at the time was the largest I could find for a cat. This is slightly larger than that, so I’m going to need to get some tools to enlarge the hole in my door. Right away I can tell this is far superior to our current cat door, which only uses a stiff plastic flap. It is so noisy, and so drafty, that I had to place a space heater in our kitchen (where the cat door is located) in the winter just so that I could tolerate being in there long enough to cook. this is a triple flap system to help keep bugs and cold air out, which is just what we need. I am sure it will save us some money on our heat bill!" —Cross-eyed cat

    Price: $104.95 (available in three sizes and two styles)

    18. A set of pet stairs for the pet who may need a little assistance getting on the bed at night or into the car. This is an ideal purchase for older dogs that need a little boost. Plus, it's super durable so you know it'll support your pet to the fullest.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these pet stairs. It took my Cavalier King Charles puppy only a couple of tries before he was running up the steps without being coaxed by a treat! Before the stair steps, because the bed is high, Charley needed help getting on the bed. With the pet stairs, he can get on and off the bed by himself. I placed the steps at the end of the bed frame (on carpet); they do not wobble when Charley is on them. I also saved money by buying these steps at Amazon.com." —TeacherGal

    Price: $44.90 (available in four styles and four colors()

    19. A UV flashlight, because sometimes you need to track down the root of the problem when it comes to pet odors and this light helps you do just that. It's a great way to target the problem areas in order to begin resolving the problem.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this light to determine whether a new kitten had a skin condition that could be contagious to my other cats. The light worked fabulously, as the cat did not have the condition. This saved us quite a bit of money in terms of vets bills and expensive dips and medicines, and it saved my precious kitten weeks of quarantine and the stresses associated with the dips and medication. This purchase was worth every penny!" —Karen H.

    Price: $12.99

    20. A pet stroller so your furry loved one can experience all the outside world has to offer, no matter their age or health. It's super comfy and roomy, so your pet won't feel cramped or smothered, beyond all the attention they'll be getting.

    Promising review: "I purchased 1 originally from Petco which actually cost more & shipping time was definitely longer-so I took a chance and ordered...Needless to say I was worried for nothing! This stroller was exactly the same in every way but overall saved me money and now both my girls have their own little kitty mobile which they absolutely love!!!" —Donna

    Price: $59.99 (available in three styles and five colors)

    21. A three-piece pet food storage container that is a perfect way to keep your pet's food fresher longer. This way you won't hesitate when you think about buying in bulk, which means major savings for you.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was a little weary buying something like this on Amazon because I didn't know exactly how big it would be. I was not disappointed though! It was exactly what I wanted. The scoop is an added bonus, being two cups is perfect for each feeding. I can finally save money and buy the larger dog food bags and not have to worry about where to store the open bag. I kept the wheels off, and it fits perfectly in my kitchen and I love the blue color. It is slightly darker than in the photo, but personally, I like the color in real life better! Definitely recommend." —Morgan

    Price: $23.74 (available in five colors)

    22. A commercial enzyme cleaner for the pet who sometimes makes accidents. It's an ideal solution to cleaning away yucky odors and leaving you and your pet's environment good as new.

    Promising review: "We had a room size area rug that had been peed on. After reading about this product, I called the company and talked to customer service about my issue. They were so helpful and suggested the best way to clean our carpet. I purchased 2 gallons of product and a garden sprayer. Diluted product 50:50 with water. Laid out a tarp and sprayed the backing first. Then flipped over and sprayed the pile. Left the carpet to soak for 24 hours. Then power washed carpet until water ran clear. So happy with the end result. Saved us a lot of money in not having to replace our carpet!! Very happy with the results." —Cynthia Zolman

    Price: $19.97 (available in two sizes)

    23. A multi surface pet brush, because sometimes there are places a normal brush can't reach. It removes debris and pet hair with just a few swipes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Saving time and money. My wife loved the Bissell CrossWave. It makes cleaning the floors so easy and does a great job. what I was using before didn't do anywhere near the job the Bissell CrossWave does. Love the fact it's easy to clean and replace the rollers and even saved the time from vacuuming the floor and cleaning the ceramic floor." —Abdullah Furiah Alshammary

    Price: $16.50 (available in four styles)

    24. A pet fountain so your fuzzy friend can stay entertained and hydrated. It's a great way to remind your pet to drink water, too, because you aren't the only one forgetting.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have two of these now so I can put a fresh one down each week while I clean and disinfect the other one. It's just easier for me that way. Since my three cats no longer have to go to the vet with urinary tract infections because they love their fountain and drink lots of fresh water, I can afford to buy two of these fountains with the money I've saved not going to the vet! " —girlfromtexas

    Price: $44.95 (available in four sizes)

    25. An automatic pet feeder that's ideal for the pet owner on the go who needs to schedule everything, including meals. It has a voice record feature and an adjustable timed feeding schedule so it works for both you and your furry loved one.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I thought the portion sizes the feeder gave out was very small amounts so I chose my own size that I thought would work best for my baby. However, I was proven wrong after seeing his food starting to pile up and I gave up and put the recommended amount they stated and now he eats the full amount every time my recorded voice pops up! It's hard putting your babies on portion control for food but I know it's for his health and he is already losing some weight as well as saving me money on food!" —Tania Garcia

    Price: $57.99 (available in two colors and sizes)

    26. An elevated dog bed for the pet who likes to stay cool, light, and breezy. It's resistant to fleas, mites, mold, and mildew. Plus, it will feel like sleeping in a hammock for your pup.

    Promising review: "Bought this for our dog who we have literally gone through at least 25 dog beds in the past eight years. She is a mini dachshund and has never outgrown chewing and destroying her beds, toys or blankets. I wish I would have discovered this all of those years ago because I could have saved a lot of money!" —Momof3wifeof1:)

    Price: $24.95+ (available in three sizes and six colors)

    27. A heated cat bed, because we aren't the only ones who get cold during the winter months. If your cat is like mine, they love the sunlight, but when that subsides, this is the next best thing.
