    Chewy, Kathy/ Chewy

    Promising review: "I feed some community cats, and they like to eat on my porch railing. I was forever having dishes knocked off and broken, so I decided to get some stainless steel bowls that couldn't break. I love how shallow and wide these are. The cats took right to them. No more broken bowls!NannyJ

    Price: $5.71+ (available in one or two count packages)

    2. A snuggly pet blanket, because if you have your very own cuddly blanket reserved for Saturday night binge-athons, maybe it's time to give one to your precious Yorkiepoo, too. And this blanket is also machine washable, so keeping it clean won't be an issue.

    Promising review: "I purchased three of these to give as gifts. They are so nice, soft, and comfy, I ended up keeping all three. My puppy loves to snuggle in them. I ordered the black blanket with the multicolor paw pattern on it. The paws are such a bright nice color. I have already washed these blankets several times, and they come out perfect. No shedding or shrinkage!" —OscarsMom

    Price: $5.19+ (available in two sizes and four colors) 

    3. A jar of enriched fish flakes with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin C, so your gorgeous fantail goldie stays healthy and happy. Since these flakes won't leech the color from your tank, you also won't have to worry that your fish are swimming around in unclean water.

    Promising review: "My goldfish love this food. They seem to can't enough of it. When it's time to feed them, they stay at the corner, waiting to eat. As they continue to grow and grow." —LadyNRed

    Price: $3.10+ (available in four sizes) 

    4. A pack of parakeet treats made with seed, corn, honey and other wholesome ingredients, for spoiling all your feathered friends. PS — you can also hang these treats inside the cage, so even if you're away, your birdies can snack away for hours.


    Promising review: "My birds just love when I give them extra treats. It makes them feel really special and I know that they deserve something different." — Birdlady

    Price: $3.99+ (available in two sizes) 

    5. A small animal vitamin C supplement that will come in handy if your guinea pig, rabbit, or chinchilla buds could use the energy boost.

    Promising review: "Both of my piggies love it. I bought these to ensure that one of my guinea pigs was getting enough vitamin C since he’s struggling with a URI, and I’ve noticed a huge improvement! I also started giving it to my other guinea pig — who is a very picky eater — and he seems a lot happier and has been more active." —Brandi

    Price: $7.19

    6. A pack of catnip mouse toys because if your cats seem bored with all their current goodies, these will definitely pique their interest. Plus, because these toys are soft and have a tail made of string, your kitty can chew them for hours. Now, you won't have to worry about chewed-up shoelaces again.

    Promising review: "These mice are the best! My cat (13) doesn't usually like to play with cat toys. Over the years, I've bought mice, crinkly balls, feather toys, wands, etc., and he's always been more interested in playing with a hair elastic if anything. I bought these mice as part of a deal when I last purchased cat food, and I'm so glad I did. My cat loves to play with these, and I'm so happy that he's having fun and getting exercise, especially at his age. It's top-notch entertainment for both of us — his spastic scrambling when chasing these is fantastic. I would definitely purchase these again." —Oldman

    Price: $2.78+ (available in three and five packs)

    7. A roll of terrarium liner that fits a variety of habitats, so your gecko, snake, or bearded dragon always has some comfy carpeting inside their little pad. This liner is also nonabrasive and easy to clean, so all those icky odors are kept at bay.

    Promising review: "We have a 75-gallon tank for our lizard, and, in the past, we’ve had to cut other mats to fit it, and they still didn’t fully cover it. We found these and they are absolutely perfect. They meet all the edges perfectly! Now that we have a mat that fits. It doesn’t seem to get kicked around as much either, which is great!" —Ella 

    Price: $3.39+ (available in eight sizes) 

    8. A 100% natural beef bone for delivering savory flavors directly to your dog's tastebuds. Because this bone has marrow inside of it that your dog can only reach by chewing, Mr. GoldenDoodle will never be plagued with boredom again.

    Promising review: "I've ordered these for years and only purchase bones made in the USA. I took a small break recently because we sold our ranch and moved into an RV with all four dogs while looking for new land to build on. They have missed their bones, so I'm putting these back on auto-shipping. My goldens and daughter's husky mix love these and dance impatiently as I take them out of the wrapper. It's definitely a great way to keep them happy, their teeth clean, and no naughtiness going on. I've never had an issue with them, and as soon as they start breaking off pieces of the bone, I toss them." —goldenhappytails

    Price: $4.29+ (available in three sizes) 

    9. A bag of pond fish food filled with fish meal, corn, fish oil, wheat germ meal, and alfalfa meal ingredients, so all your koi kuties stay in good health. As this food is easy to digest, it won't cloud your tank water, either.

    Chewy, Mell/ Chewy

    Promising review: "Pellets are in a variety of odd shapes with small and larger pieces. My big fish love them. The smaller fish are able to enjoy the food, without having to crush or break them down." —Mell

    Price: $4.99+ (available in three sizes)

    10. A Kong squeaky dog toy that you can use for indoor and outdoor play, so you and your pup can play hide-and-seek and fetch till you're both out of breath. Because this toy is also tough and durable, it will last through all those bites and chews without getting totally destroyed in the process.

    Promising review: "I love this ball so much, I keep ordering more! Both my dogs love to chew on them, and they seem to stand up to the chewing, which amazes me after seeing so many chewed-up balls and toys. They squeak just enough to make them happy, but they seem to not squeak more than a few times. (Godsend there!) They love chasing them, and that puppy would rather run after one of these balls more than any other ball (save the glow-in-the-dark ones at night). They come in great colors, and, well, a perfect investment into your happiness. Oh, and your puppy will love playing fetch with you too!" —Anniesmom

    Price: $2.19+ (available in four sizes) 

    11. A bottle of aquarium water conditioner if you use tap water to fill your tank and want something that can reduce traces of chlorine, heavy metals, and chloramines from it. Aloe vera is also added to this conditioner, so all your finned friends' slime coats will stay healthy and protected from damage.

    Promising review: "After adding new angelfish, the fish stayed in one corner for two days. After product introduced, it perked up and is now swimming with the other fish." —Bonn

    Price: $1.79+ (available in eight sizes) 

    12. A litter scooper with a caddy that clips on to the side of your cat's litter box, so the task of cleaning is a piece of cake.

    CatWoman/ Chewy, Chewy

    Promising review: "It attaches to your litter box, so I always know where it is, and the caddy collects any debris. Love it, and would definitely recommend it."  —HotFlash 

    Price: $4.90

    13. A flying trapeze toy to keep your parakeets, cockatiels, and lovebirds swinging away to their heart's content. Because this toy has a seagrass mat, colorful chains, beads, and links, it's the perfect toy to help your birds relieve stress and get their daily exercise in.

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to buy this at first, but now I wish I bought this for my cockatiel years ago! HE LOVES IT! I was not sure if he would go in it, but once I removed the little hanging toys from the top, he basically lives in there now. I can tell he feels safe in there. He sits in it, looks out the window, sings, sleeps, and eats his millet and veggies. It’s great. Would definitely recommend this." —Sammy 

    Price: $11.97

    14. A small animal hideout that rabbits, guinea pigs, and chinchillas can use for burrowing or nesting, so your small animals have a safe spot of their own. As this hideout has a spacious top, one of your piggies can lounge on the top while the other is inside the trunk — so wave goodbye to fights over space!

    Zeus/Chewy, Jeanie/ Chewy

    Promising review: "My pigs love it! They have their own cage, and the trunk fits perfectly. They don't chew it because they have their chew toys. When I clean their cage, this is where they go, and, at night, when I check on them, they are inside their house trunk sleeping." —masslady

    Price: $2.99+ (available in two sizes)

    15. A suspended hammock so your bearded beauty can lounge out like royalty. Since mounting this hammock onto your tank is easy, you can remove it and reattach it each time it's time to give your scaly baby's terrarium a deep clean.

    Promising review: "The giant size fits our massive female yellow-bellied slider! Surprisingly, the suction cups work even if they are wet. The grommets are a great addition to the giant size. I feel like that will greatly help with tearing. Carol loves it!" —BosMom

    Price: $5.99+ (available in three sizes) 

    16. A tented pet bed that will fit puppies, bigger cats, and other smaller pets perfectly. Now the whole gang can have a hangout spot to snuggle and cuddle together!

    A tent covered cat and dog bed in a beige color

    Promising review: "This tented cat/dog bed exceeded my expectations. Light in weight but very well made, my cats immediately made use of it, and now is where you will most likely find them! The room inside can fit two average size adult cats cozily. The unattached bed pillow has one side that's soft and fur-like while the other is soft and velvet-like (same material as the entire tent). I can see being able to throw the pillow in the washer/dryer. The tent collapses neatly once you remove the pillow and store it flat, but will keep its shape very well once the pillow is placed inside. Long story short, I love it!" —Sonnet838

    Price: $18.22+ (available in two sizes) 

    17. A package of small animal chew treats made with corn and rice, because if you have a stash of treats for all your other household pets, of course your bunnies, guinea pigs, and mice deserve some too. Because these treats promote clean and healthy teeth, they'll also help strengthen your fur baby's teeth with each bite.

    Promising review: "I bought these critter pops, and my bunny goes crazy over them. I am amazed at how much my bun loves these things. This is a must-buy, and, for a reasonable price, you can’t beat it. I would highly recommend these tasty treats to anyone who owns a small pet." —Oreo

    Price: $1.45+ (available in two counts and two sizes) 

    18. A digital thermometer that can measure terrarium temperatures, so you can always make sure your turtle's tank has the perfect level of warmth. And because this thermometer comes with suction cups, it can stick easily onto your tank without falling off.

    Jessica/ Chewy

    Promising review: "I didn’t know how dangerously hot my turtle's basking area was getting. He had stopped basking, and it was recommended that I check the temperature, and no wonder! Now I can keep an eye on temperatures and not slowly cook my pet." —Stephanie 

    Price: $8.88 

    19. A pet slicker brush for keeping your pooch's coat shiny and oh so purdy. As this brush is sensitive-skin safe, you won't have to worry about pulling or raking your dog's fur as you brush him.

    A reviewer's image of a golden doodle

    Promising review: "This brush works great on our poodle. He has a very soft, dense, curly coat, and this brush goes through it like a hot knife through butter. No pulling, no sticking, no problems! It also easily slides through the long fine hair on his ears. He enjoys being groomed with this brush, and his coat looks fabulous after grooming. I wish it came in a smaller size as it is a bit big to maneuver around where his legs meet his body. Highly recommended!" —CarmieJo

    Price: $4.36

    20. A pack of dog poop bags if the bags you are currently using always manage to leak and fall apart, even if you double bag them. The even better news is that while these bags are scented, they aren't too overpowering, so they won't set your nose off in a tizzy.

    Corgi4life/ Chewy

    Promising review: "If you're looking for a decent-priced sturdy poop bag, this is the one for you. I purchased the refill set with a scent, and, honestly, it's not overpowering or overwhelming at all. It has just a tiny hint of scent to it. I haven't noticed if it really hides the smell because, really, I'm not going to do the serious sniff test. With that said though, I haven't been offended by any lingering odors while using this bag for dog walking. And they are sturdy and don't leak." —DoodleMom

    Price: $6.81+ (available in scented and unscented, and two sizes)

    21. A dental water additive for cats that reduces plaque and tartar, improves gum health, and freshens breaths — so when your kitty covers your face with kisses in the morning, you won't smell like their stinky breath afterward. This additive also goes a long way — just 1 teaspoon is added to the water bowl.


    Promising review: "At first, when I added the small amount to their water, they sniffed it and didn't want to drink it. But after an hour or so, they were drinking at the water with no problem. It seems that now when I pick them up and give them their forced mommy kisses on their cheeks, their breath is much better! It takes just a small amount, so this stuff will be lasting me for a little while." —Nena

    Price: $11.99 

    22. A pack of Bio-Bag filter cartridges so your tank stays free of harmful contaminants and odors. You'll also love that these cartridges also have a decent shelf life, so you won't have to change them often.


    Promising review: "Great multipurpose filter for the price. I've used these for 10 years at least." —Gomer

    Price: $8.99 

    23. A package of styptic-stop powder to stop bleeding and discomfort on the spot, so next time you clip your pet's nails too short, they won't even feel a thing.

    A bottle of safety powder to stop bleeding

    Promising review: "I’ve had this for a while, just in case it was needed. Today I cut a nail a hair too short, and I quickly applied this. My puppy didn’t even notice what happened. The bleeding stopped immediately." —unusualrocket 

    Price: $3.95+ (available in two sizes)

    24. A bottle of small animal cage cleaner so you can nip pet accident stains in the bud before they even begin to set in. This cage cleaner spray is also nontoxic, so you won't have to worry about it harming your pets as you use it.

    Erin/ Chewy

    Promising review: "I use this to clean my bunnies' cage and I've definitely noticed the urine smell is less strong. I like this solution! It has a gentle smell that is not too overpowering. It definitely erases smells and stains like magic! I definitely recommend it for all pet owners, I will keep buying these." —Bunnifer 

    Price: $7.99 

    25. A bag of terrarium sand that gives your tank a beach-like feel, so you can make your new hermit crabs feel like they're back in the ocean. This sand also won't foul your water — or change its water chemistry — so all your aquatic inhabitants stay safe.

    A reviewer's image of a fish tank with terrarium sand inside

    Promising review: "I mixed this sand with some Fluval black stratum for a nice mix of black and white in my tank, and boy does it work. This stuff is so soft to the touch and has a very nice natural shimmer under black lights/UV. My fish love it, even the soft bellies. Plants take to it very well." —tKet

    Price: $3.98 (available in two colors)
