    Your pet would most definitely tell you how much they love these budget-friendly products...if they could actually talk.

    1. A large plush toy shaped like a duck about to become your dog's favorite thing in the world (besides you, of course). They'll fall in love with the squeaker, how huggable it is, and how it stays together even through endless hours of rough play with sharp chompers.

    2. A slow feeder dog bowl designed to prevent your dog from scarfing down their food in one minute flat and ending up with an upset tummy. This bowl will also help reduce bloating and vomiting that lots of fast-eating pups can often struggle with.

    3. A cozy window hammock that your cat will think is so luxurious, they'll feel like they're sunbathing at a 5-star hotel on the French Riviera.
