    1. A tube of C.E.T. enzymatic vanilla-mint flavored toothpaste if you want to get rid of your dog or cat's plaque and smelly breath for good.

    Lindsey/Chewy, Chewy

    Promising review: "Our 4-year-old American Bully started getting plaque on his teeth. I added toothbrushing in three times a week and his teeth are like a puppy's again. Pearly white. I prefer to prevent dental disease than have to anesthetize and pay for costly dentals. This routine is working." —SaraJ

    Price: $10.18

    2. A step-in cat scratcher toy with catnip (!!) to save your beloved furniture from your those claws of fury!

    Kaylee/Chewy, Great/Chewy

    Promising review: "My sister recommended this to me because my cat would scratch at the couch. I never thought he would love it so much. He tore the whole box up and is almost down to the bottom of the box. This is all within about five months, so it definitely holds up for a while. Ordering another one!" —Kalee

    Price: $10.98

    3. A container of Musher's secret paw protection dog wax since you want to keep their precious paws soft. This will heal and protect against dryness and cracking (especially in winter)!

    Pearl/Chewy, Tintin/Chewy

    Promising review: "BEST PRODUCT OUT THERE!!! I would give this 10 stars if I could! My TWO Frenchies are super sensitive to EVERYTHING, and this helped their poor cracked feet from running constantly as Frenchies do LOL — this with the scrubber and sanitizing wash was a miracle! Must-have for Frenchies!" —5stars

    Price: $14.99+ (available in three sizes)

    4. A Furbo HD dog camera with a treat dispenser so you can keep an eye on your furry friend, talk to them, AND give them treats even when you can't be home. It'll give you both peace of mind!

    Syd Robinson/BuzzFeed

    It's got great night vision, and you can also set up push notifications that alert you when they're barking.

    Promising review: "You need this in your life!! If you've been on the fence about ordering a Furbo, just do it! I wish I had ordered mine sooner. I love the peace of mind knowing what my dog is up to (especially knowing whether he is barking while we are gone)." —TaterTot

    Price: $169 (originally $199)

    5. A dog life jacket for dogs who love to splash, swim, and float in the water...but need a little bit of extra support and safety.

    AshleyJ/Chewy, Amypug/Chewy

    Promising review: "My dog LOVES the water, and we have been wanting to get her a life jacket for a while. This jacket is perfect for my Smarty. She stays botany when she’s just swimming and even when she’s attacking the water. Also the neck thingy is perfect and keeps her mouth up and out of the water when swimming. It helped her stay in the water longer as she got way less tired. Also the two back straps were exactly what I didn’t know we needed! We could grab her so much easier and pull her out (something she hates and fights every time). If you have a water loving dog I HIGHLY recommend this life jacket!" —MollyKillers

    Price: $17.97+ (available in sizes XS—XL)

    6. An extra-wide ceramic elevated two-cup cat bowl so you can ease neck strain and whisker fatigue and motivate your kitty to eat up!

    A reviewer's cat eating from the elevated bowl

    Promising review: "This is the second of these bowls I've purchased (I adopted a second cat), and the first is still holding up great! I chose this bowl because of its unique elevation, which helps to prevent reflux, and its shallow design, which prevents whisker fatigue and allows the cat to eat from all areas of the bowl. It's easy to clean and looks nice sitting out. It's a little pricey, but they're well-made, so it's really more of a one-time investment." —Sydney

    Price: $17.99 (originally $23.99)

    7. A box of wheat-free peanut butter cake mix with frosting because you've always wanted to celebrate your dog's special day with cake and candles, but can't give them real (human) cake.

    A reviewer's dog licking the peanut butter cake

    Promising review: "Made this cake for my pets' collective birthday party and it was a huge hit! Very easy to make with just a few ingredients. Added peanut butter to the icing to make it go further. Was able to cut into twelve pieces. Both pups took a whole piece in their mouth and gobbled it up, then froze the rest for future enjoyment. Would highly recommend for any pet parties!" —Mama2FurryBeasts

    Price: $6.99

    8. A lock-and-crock small animal dish that will actually stay in place while your lil' friend eats and drinks. Say goodbye to messes and wasted food!

    Sarah/Chewy, Chewy

    Promising review: "Finally they can't tip them over! I have two rabbits who think water bowls are to be thrown around. I love these! They can grab at them and try as they might, they cannot remove them from the holder." —Cassondra

    Price: $5.12+ (available in two sizes)

    9. A creamy vanilla pet odor exterminator candle so your house will smell amazingly delicious, even though your beloved pets are a little stinky.

    A reviewer's photo of the candle lit up

    Promising review: "I started noticing my basement had a pee smell (we have old carpet). I got this candle in hopes that it would help with the smell until I can replace the carpet. WOW, I am a believer!! It covered the pee smell for a couple days, and then I’d have to relight it again (I say covered because this candle doesn’t do magic and make the smell go away since the smell is in the carpet). I thought I’d have to keep it light each time I was down there." —ShivsMom

    Price: $7.95

    10. A reptile lamp stand to safely suspend a lamp fixture above your enclosure and keep your lil' reptile nice and toasty — the adjustable knobs mean the perfect level of heat and warmth!

    reviewer's picture of the lamp stand warming a reptile tank with five-star caption "great for beardy baby"

    Promising review: "This light stand is perfect for almost any enclosure, I own two for my turtle, and this stand is sturdy and well built. Everything fit together perfectly, this is the best option for a lamp stand, hands down." —Turtleman

    Price: $15.99 (originally $29.99)

    11. An EZ mount cat window perch so your kitty can have the perfect elevated spot to watch the birds outside...or nap in the sunlight.

    reviewer's cat lounging on the window perch
    haven /Chewy

    Promising review: "My two sibling rescues love, love, love their new viewing shelves. My overactive eight-month cats laze, sleep, wrestle each other, 'argue' over the same shelf and even do somersaults on these sturdy window shelves every day since I put these shelves up for them. These were definitely worth the money and are a big hit with my competitive kitties." —Evie

    Price: $28.91

    12. A two-pack of washable leakproof pee pads that will protect against those who accidentally wee-wees again and again.

    Reviewer's dog curled up next to three large pee pads

    Promising review: "Our pup has Cushings and IBD, and between those two issues and her medications, she has a lot of accidents (not her fault!). She uses these pee pads — we have two down, always — at least twice a day, no matter how often we take her out. We wash them after every use. Since we bought them I estimate these have been through the wash about 60 times or more. They work wonderfully, haven't fallen apart, and they are large enough to prevent any spill over. Saved our carpets and floors and allowed us to sleep through the night and not take her out at 3 a.m."KLee

    Price: $15+ (available in four sizes)

    13. A support harness so dogs who are disabled or recovering from an injury can still move around easily!

    Human using the handles and support harness to help a large dog walk up the stairs

    Promising review: "Our German shepherd mix, Fancy, is close to turning 14 years old. She was recently diagnosed with cutaneous lymphoma, which, for her, has been rapid and aggressive. Our biggest challenge was coming up with a way to support her mobility. We owe this company so much gratitude for offering a product that has given us precious weeks with our Fancy that we would not have had otherwise. It is EXACTLY what we needed. It's wide, Velcro straps allow it to be used on dogs of different sizes, and it couldn't be simpler to use. It's comfortable for her, its handles are the perfect length for supporting her without having to bend over, and I have zero fear of the stitching failing at the times when we need to support 100% of her weight." —Gratefulowners

    Price: $27.95

    14. A unicorn covered cat and dog bed because only a bed this *magical* will finally convince your pet to stop taking over your bed.

    A reviewer's cat snuggled in the unicorn bed

    Promising review: "I ordered this cat bed because it is just too cute. I mean, who doesn't love unicorns, right? When it arrived I was surprised at how much better it looks in person. It has a rainbow mane, wow!  As soon as I put it down, each cat took turns getting inside. They all LOVE it! I have several cat beds they pay zero attention to. They literally fight over this one. My Princess Chanel has laid claim to it and barely leaves it in fear one of her siblings will take over. I'm amazed at their response to this bed. I going to have to get a few more to keep the clan happy!" —8catmom

    Price: $21.99

    15. A waterproof treat pouch that makes it easy to store your phone, keys, and LOTS of treats, thanks to the multiple pockets. Plus, the hinged-opening means it *actually* stays open when you're trying to get the treats out!

    A reviewer's dog waiting patiently for their owner to dispense the treats from the pouch

    It also features multiple clips and loops, so you can easily attach it to your backpack, waist, or leash while walking.

    Promising review: "Was just what I needed for my nine month Pomeranian to start her first class in puppy school. I am 67 years old, and hands and coordination are difficult when holding the leash and getting Kiwi to train and getting treats ready for reward quickly. This holds phone and keys out of the way, and opens and closes easily too. Very well-made and strong." —Darleene

    Price: $15.95 (available in three colors)

    16. A combo dog brush with two specialized sides to maximize grooming. One side removes tangles while the other redistributes natural oils for that ultimate silky, shiny coat.

    Greatrating/Chewy, Chewy

    Promising review: "My pup is picky about how he’s touched and brushed. The soft side of this brush really helped to get him to love being brushed and now he even enjoys some detangling." —Gazpacho

    Price: $5.47

    17. A dog DNA test because it's the best way to find out exactly what breed(s) your dog is — which can help you better understand the needs and behavior of your dog!


    Promising review: "I give Wisdom Panel a 100% perfect score for DNA testing of my furrbaby. I was not sure about this DNA test kit and if it would be accurate, but it was worth the money. There were traits that I knew my sweet puppy had, but I wanted to see if these traits that showed various other breeds in my puppy's actions would show up in this DNA test and they really did!! Now I am going to buy another DNA test kit for my special kitty because I see certain traits in him too and I want to see what his behind his cool heritage! This is a great kit, and Wisdom Panel is very professional in its presentation of its DNA findings. I highly recommend." —Robynne

    Price: $89.99 (originally $99.99)

    18. A two-way squirrel baffle that will *actually* confuse those squirrels and keep them away from the bird seed!

    Reviewer's photo of the squirrel baffles hanging above their bird feeders

    Promising review: "Finally! Something that works! We have a 'squirrel proof' bird feeder that is supposed to keep squirrels out. However, our squirrels are persistent and figured out how to get in from the bottom of the cage where the opening was a little larger around the edges. I even ordered a different squirrel proof bird feeder and it kept the squirrel out, but the bird feeder design resulted in half of the bird seed spilling in the ground, so I returned it. I ordered the Two-Way Squirrel Baffle and it has solved our squirrel problem. Hallelujah!" —Bethereyesterday

    Price: $14.99

    19. A stainless-steel professional nail trimmer to make clipping those dog nails so much easier, especially thanks to the nonslip grip and safety guard.

    reviewer holding the nail clipper next to their dog's paw

    Promising review: "I got these for my medium sized dog with black nails. He didn't love getting his nails cut, but these are nice and sharp and made clipping easy. When I take them out now he actually gets excited to see them. You can go in and make fast small clips with no problem. Very easy to use and I can still easily see the underside of the nail when I need to." —NanV

    Price: $10.93

    20. An API freshwater aquarium master test kit that will make it easy peasy for you to measure the six most important aquarium levels so you can keep your fish healthy.

    Katec/Chewy, Chewy

    Promising review: "Perfect for people who care about their fish. Extremely easy to use, with a very informative booklet. Even if you're a beginner and words like "nitrate," "nitrite," and "pH" scare you, you'll be able to get comfortable with this. This kit definitely isn't some menacing demon back to haunt you from your high school chemistry class. It's unbelievably easy to use and understand, and, above all, it might even save your fish :) " —hannahjking

    Price: $24.58 (originally $34.99)

    21. A nylon cat harness and bungee leash because some kitties love their walks just as much as dogs, and this secure harness comes in six fun colors!

    A reviewer's kitten wearing the purple harness

    Promising review: "Received this harness and leash today! Out cat loves it. It fits perfectly. This is his first time to feel grass under his feet and chase lizards. When we bring him inside, he whines and cries for us to put the harness on him and take him back outside! I'm extremely happy with this produce and so is our cat." —Raine

    Price: $14.95 (available in three sizes and six colors)

    22. A set of four colorful collapsible silicone bowls so you never have to worry about not having a water bowl handy. These bowls fold down and easily clip to your backpack or leash!

    the four bowls (red, blue, green, and yellow)

    Promising review: "These are awesome! I use them when I’m traveling with my dog or going on hikes. They fit easily in my bag (I was using Tupperware before!) and dry super fast. She’s about 80 lbs so I sometimes fill the bowl twice, but no problems otherwise! I like the multipack as I can rotate which ones I’m using and I like having extras anyway. Awesome purchase!" —FionaB

    Price: $7.69

    23. A snazzy blue doggy daypack with four expandable pockets since hiking is a whole lot easier when your doggo can carry their own water, toys, and treats!

    A reviewer's medium sized dog wearing the daypack on a hike

    Promising review: "I ordered this with the idea of maybe slowing down our Lab/Coonhound/Australian Cattle/Siberian Husky dog mix. With that mix there is a lot of energy going through her, but it worked! No more pulling me as we hiked. She had so many people stop us to ask where we got it from. Had no rubbing or irritation on her skin. Good that it is light-colored and breathable for hiking when it's sunny. She now carries her own water, dish and bags. I can't believe I haven't bought one of these before this!" —Michelle

    Price: $17.84+ (available in sizes M—L)

    24. An extra-wide, 30-inch auto-close pet gate so you can keep your pet safely contained wherever you need. It works indoors, outdoors, in doorways or patios, and can open to the left or right.

    A reviewer's photo of the gate installed on the patio, keeping the dog from roaming around the yard

    Promising review: "I love this gate! I needed a walkthrough gate for a doorway into a bedroom that was being used for a couple of foster kittens (for a month). This worked perfectly and did not require any permanent screws or adhesive pads on the door frame. I followed the tip to leave the zip tie on the gate until everything was solid and aligned and it worked great the entire time I needed it. It will also come in handy (with the extensions) for the future when I need a gate across a large archway into my living room. A truly QUALITY product." —SueInGilbert

    Price: $34.99 (available in three colors)

    25. A sherpa-lined and airline-approved deluxe pet carrier to make traveling hassle-free for you both.

    A reviewer's dog in the carrier

    Promising review: "My cat loathes having to go in the car. He rarely has to travel, probably about eight times a year, to and from major holidays back home. Usually he gets motion sick and won't stop complaining the entire ride home but with this carrier, he is 100% comfortable and doesn't make a peep. When we're at home, this carrier is now his favorite bed to sleep in during the day, as it's the perfect size for him to feel cozy, as if he were in a box, but also comfy because of the Sherpa bed. The shoulder strap and additional grab handles on the top make carrying this carrier extremely stable, and much easier than any carrier I've had before. With entry points from both the front and top, it is also much easier to get my cat into the carrier. If your cat dislikes travel, definitely get them this carrier, it has helped me and my cat so much!!" —Julie

    Price: $35.99 (originally $73.99, available in two colors)
