    1. A bottle of pet stain and odor remover spray that works on carpet, tile, and hardwood, so any corner of your home can be liberated from stains and stinkery — even if the stain is from a really old bathroom accident.

    Promising review: "I have a large family of fur-babies, some very young and one senior. Accidents have been happening a lot around my house. I have used products from the pet store, grocery store cleaners and home remedies. Nothing completely got rid of the smelly pet odors and stains. I saw a review for Rocco & Roxie Stain & Odor Eliminator online and thought, 'I don't have anything to lose.' So I ordered a gallon of the product. It was delivered quickly and I was ready to go. Oh my gosh!! ONE application of this product COMPLETELY removed a pet stain on carpet that had practically been cemented in from all of my other attempts to remove it. TOTALLY GONE! So was the smell! Since I didn't have anything to lose, I used this product across a whole variety of flooring. Carpet, cement, vinyl and wood. Yep, even my expensive wood floors. On the carpet, I used the product as directed. It removed every single stain. ALL OF THEM. And it also removed that faint, lingering smell of pee. For the cement and vinyl flooring, I sprayed on the product and bye bye odors. The people at Rocco & Roxie cautioned me to be careful using the product on my wood floors, since it is a water-based product. I would recommend this product to anyone who has pets. It reasonably priced, customers service is readily available and best of all, it REALLY WORKS!" —V

    2. A silicone-bristled paw washer, because damp paper towels are no match for dirty puppy feet.

    Promising review: "I have to admit that I was skeptical...but this is worth EVERY PENNY and more! Our Great Dane's paws would track in huge amounts of dirt/mud, and wiping them down with a towel was never good enough. This is definitely big enough for his huge feet, and he doesn't even fight it. I wonder if it feels good on his paws? The fact that the rubber 'bristles' are removable for cleaning out afterwards is an awesome bonus, too. You can actually see all the dirt it's cleaning off. I'm sure it will also come in handy when we take our dogs RV-ing!! Thanks for a great product!!!!" —Bitsy C. :-)

    Price: $12.99+ (available in three sizes, six colors, and with or without lid)

    3. An inflatable protective collar, so your poor pup or kitty doesn't have to deal with a large plastic E-collar (AKA The Cone of Shame a la Pixar's UP ) when they're recovering from surgery or another injury. They can safely eat, sleep, and play while wearing this adjustable donut, because it doesn't impede their vision or balance.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my female dog who was just spayed. She is a rescue dog who had been abused in the past, and is easily scared. She was scared of the plastic E-collar we got from the vet. She would put her head down toward the floor when she wore it, and not move. She needed it but I couldn't stand watching her like that. A friend told me about these inflatable donuts, so I purchased one for her. What a huge difference! It goes around the neck and is attached to the collar, very simple to get on/off. She can rest her head on it, sleep, even get water with it on. I saw a huge difference in her. I highly recommend these over the plastic E-collar. Much more humane and comfy, especially when it's important their stitches need to be kept dry. Excellent product." —Loyally SandyB

    Price: $11.88+ (available in sizes XS-XL and two colors)

    4. Or a soft donut collar that looks like a literal donut (or toast, or avocado), for small cats who don't like the feel of a hard plastic E-collar and owners who want to take 10,000 Instagram pictures.

    Promising review: "This product worked like a dream. My cat got spayed and her incision got infected due to a reaction to the sutures. She hated the cone they put on her. This was an amazing alternative. She didn't mind it at all. She kind of used it as a pillow and slept on it a lot. It was comfy for her to sleep on and it didn't choke her. It was small enough that it didn't impede her walking or using the litter box. She was able to eat and drink water with no problems. The collar is adjustable as well, which is good for bigger or smaller cats. I highly recommend this product for anyone who needs an e-collar and doesn't want to use a cone. Will definitely use again in the future." —Tiffany

    Price: $13.99+ (available in three styles)

    5. A tub of dog ear-cleaning wipes for pups who struggle with itchy, irritated, or stinky years.

    Promising review: "Our dog had really smelly ears and these made a huge difference with regular use. It also helped to clean out the wax and dirt build-up." —Nicole Joyner

    Price: $12.99 or Subscribe & Save for $12.34/ month

    6. A no-spill water bowl that releases water as your pet drinks, making it way more difficult for them to splash, spill, or otherwise turn your kitchen floor into the smallest, saddest Great Lake.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical when I ordered this. I have a 100 pound lab Shepard mix, and after he drinks, he leaves trails of water and a big puddle where the bowl is. He also is notorious for moving his food dish to exactly where he wants it, laying down, and flipping it over so it spills in front of him for easy access. I had little hope he would actually drink out of this and not chew it up. I also didn’t know how it would do with spillage. This thing is AMAZING!! No spillage, easy to clean, and it prevents his face folds from soaking up too much excess water, so only a drop here or there. I would recommend this to anyone. I’ve used it for a month now, and I’m still giddy every time I go to clean and see a dry mat. I’ve had my dog for five years, and that’s a record of being puddle-free." —FurMom

    Price: $15.99+ (available in three colors)

    7. A nontoxic nose balm for pups with schnozzes that are dry, chapped, or otherwise in need of some loving care.

    A reviewer's before-and-after shot of dog noses: on the left, dry and scaly, before application of the product; on the right, a smooth-looking nose

    Promising review: "Our vet told us our pug would need surgery in order to get rid of the crust that was growing on her nose. Having never owned a pug before, I believed him and began saving up for the expensive surgery. After doing a little research, I stumbled upon stories about pugs and dry noses. More research led to nose butter and the various brands. I took a chance and purchased this one. My pug's nose is completely healed WITHOUT surgery! Give it a try, I promise it works! I swear by it!" —Savannah Salas

    Price: $4.95+ (available in scented and unscented formulas, in 8 sizes, with 70 different breed images)

    8. A fur-removing broom that will clean up your best buddy's fuzzy little "gifts" from wood, tile, carpet, and even upholstery.

    Promising review: "I bought this broom two years ago and it is still going strong! I have four large breed dogs and we have fur EVERYWHERE! This works so, so well! I am always amazed at what this picks up, even after I just ran the vacuum. If you remove the head from the handle, you can use the head to do all the crevices along baseboards where fur gets trapped. I also use it that way to do the carpet corners on the stairs. Lastly, I use it to get dust and cobwebs off the floors and ceilings. It truly is a super tool." —Roseann

    Price: $12.44+ (available in six styles)

    9. A package of chemical-free eye wipes for dogs and cats that will soothe irritation, help remove tear stains, and get any crusty gunk outta there.

    Promising review: "I am on my third container of these wipes! I love them! My Yorkies, Bella and Chloe, struggle with tears that stain and leave goop around their eyes, giving them what we call 'eye boogers.' Yuk. I use these wipes every other day or so to ensure their eyes and hair around their eyes stay clean. Chloe is especially susceptible. If we go to long without using them, the build-up is too great, and she actually develops clumps of scab-like stuff near her eyes. These are excellent! They are not really scented, except that they smell fresh and clean. The moistness is just right—not too wet and not too dry. The all-natural ingredients work well and do not irritate their eyes nor their skin. My groomer is a huge fan—it makes her job easier. We can't live without them. Definitely recommend!" —Yorkie Mama

    Price: $16.95+ or Subscribe & Save for $15.25/ month (available in regular or biodegradable)

    10. Or a set of two tear stain combs, because it's a 100% natural way to gently remove crust, mucus, and other eye-related gunk from the fur of light-haired shih-tzus, poodles, Pomeranians, and others.

    A reviewer photo of the comb

    Promising review: "I was originally skeptical of this product. Having had 'weepy-eyed' dogs most of my life, I know what a mess it is trying to clean them up. This product is AMAZING!! One of my dogs is old and hates it when I clean her eyes. This comb made the goo slide right off! She didn't even mind! No fighting, no fuss! No more wipes, liquids or soapy messes! One slide of the comb, and the eye mess was GONE!" —M. Hilt

    Price: $5.95

    11. A massaging bath brush that will help you remove your pup's loose fur in the tub without pulling or yanking, and rub in shampoo for a deeper clean.

    Promising review: "If you wash your own dog, you have got to get this brush! It made a night and day difference washing my German Shepherd — and she loved every minute of it, and she's not usually a big fan of water! This brush really helped penetrate her fur, so I could rub her special shampoo into her skin. It was like a massage to her, while she got the best deep clean she's ever received from me. It also helped pull off a lot of her hair during the wash, and the hair is super easy to remove from the brush. I was so impressed with this brush that I ordered one for my sister the day after I used mine." —tjbythebay

    Price: $8.97+ (available in one or two packs)

    12. An organic, hypollergenic, alcohol-free paw balm, because dry, cracked, irritated paws are fun for exactly no one.

    Promising review: "Our Shetland Sheepdog was suffering from very dry, cracked paws this winter, due to a mixture of the cold weather and the dry heat in our home. With the temperature dropping, the pads were particularly irritated and our Sheltie started constantly licking them. We narrowed our search down to this product and it is fantastic! Received it yesterday and upon the first application, his pads instantly improved in look and texture. But MOST importantly, our Sheltie was comfortable again and has not touched his pads once." —Tony Stark

    Price: $14.99+ (available in 2 oz, 4 oz, and 8 oz)

    13. A USB-chargeable, water-resistant light-up collar that has three light settings and runs for over eight hours, so you and your canine companion could safely play literally all night. I mean, your dog definitely wants to. Do you even have anything that important to do in the morning, anyway?

    Promising review: "We have three of these collars and they are used for night time walks. They go on and off the dog very easy. The lights are bright and we can see our dogs when they are in the woods. We live on 20 acres of woods and love these collars! The green is the best for visibility. We have two 70 lb. Labs, and the large fits perfect. We also have a red medium and that is a bit snug on our black lab, but we use it. The blue color is somewhat less visible from a long distance. Quality is good and they hold a charge for a good 10 hours. Recharging is easy and fast. The lights don't bother our dogs at all. They get excited when I grab them and turn them on, as they know its time for a walk." —jeffmc29

    Price: $18.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and 11 colors)

    14. A Burt's Bees waterless cat shampoo, for felines who think baths should be illegal (so, pretty much all felines).

    Promising review: "We have an older cat who absolutely HATES bath time and water with a passion. We've used wipes on him in the past and he will accept those, but decided to try this waterless Burt's Bees shampoo, since I trust the company's products. To my surprise, he didn't mind the mist being sprayed on his fur as I brushed him. Didn't put up too much of a fight at all, until his underbelly started getting too wet. Still, a lot less stress for him than an actual bath, so that's a win. After being dried off, his fur is clean, soft, shiny, and smells nice."The David

    Price: $5.83+ or Subscribe & Save for $5.54+/ month (available in three sizes)

    15. A pet toothpaste that freshens breath and reduces plaque and tartar, so you can finally let your puppy kiss you without holding your nose. Plus, it's safe to swallow!

    Promising review: "Wow!! I don’t usually write Amazon reviews, but for this stuff, I had to say something. About a month and a half ago, our vet told us that our dog was starting to develop some buildup on his teeth. She recommended buying expensive treats or brushing his teeth. So we decided that buying this and brushing his teeth with this product (and a normal human toothbrush) every other night was the cheaper and healthier option. And what a difference it has made! A couple weeks later and there is a visible change in the appearance of his teeth—not to mention that his breath is so much better. 100% worth the time and effort. Also, our dog loves the poultry flavor! As soon as we unscrew the cap and tell him it’s time for brushing, he starts wagging his tail and licking and salivating uncontrollably. It is absolutely amazing how much our dog loves getting his teeth brushed with this stuff! Do not hesitate, buy this product immediately!" —Shannen M.

    Price: $9.39+ or Subscribe & Save for $9.39+/ month (available in three flavors)

    16. A paraben-, dye-, and soap-free medicated shampoo for dogs that fights fungal, parasitic and bacterial skin infections, and soothes rashes, hot spots, and flaky, itchy and irritated skin.

    A reviewer photo showing "Before," with dark fur with heavy dandruff, and "After," the same fur, post-shampoo, with no dandruff

    Promising review: "I've been fighting severe dandruff with my 13-year-old chihuahua for a few years, with veterinarian-directed treatments. The dog had not wanted me to pet or hold her much anymore, which I assumed was because of her arthritis and chronic slipped disc in her neck. In desperation over the flaky mess that recently increased again, I tried this shampoo—and even my veterinarian was impressed with how much my dog's coat cleared up after just one use!! After the third shampooing, the dandruff was almost completely gone, even a week later. The best part, though? My dog suddenly wants to be held and petted non-stop!!! I guess her skin irritation was causing enough discomfort previously that she didn't want her skin touched. Now, she seems to feel better and her coat looks great!" —Jodi

    Price: $8.96+ or Subscribe & Save for $8.51+/ month (available in two sizes and one or two packs)

    17. A grooming glove that will let you brush your comb-hating kitty or doggo without their even knowing it. The glove's nubs massage your little buddy as you pet them, and also catch loose and shed fur. Sneaky grooming! The best kind of grooming!!

    A reviewer photo of the glove, covered in pet hair

    Promising review: "This glove is perfect for our one kitty who hates to be brushed. Our family recently added kitty number three, a big, beautiful, long- haired Maine Coon who despises being brushed or bathed. It was such a struggle as fine cat hair started taking over our life. Honestly, I did not think this grooming glove would work, but let me just say it is wonderful. Our kitty Nicki just loves the feeling it gives him, and we love the astounding amount of kitty hair that is now in the glove and not on every surface in our home. We LOVE this glove." —Colleen5991

    Price: $7.99

    18. A bottle of aquarium water clarifier, so you can keep your water clear, make sure your filter is running as efficiently as possible, and give your little aquatic buddies the best environment possible.

    Promising review: "What kind of sorcery is this? About a month ago, my aquarium went algae green. I'm uncomfortable using chemicals, so I've been doing frequent water changes and cleaning. I managed to get rid of about 75% of the green water, but It was still really cloudy. The big brand products didn't work at all. I came across this while scouring Amazon for an alternatives. After mixing it into a jug of water, I slowly poured it Into the tank and went about doing other things. I came back a couple of hours later and the water was crystal clear!" —MatthewGB

    Price: $4.99 or Subscribe & Save for $4.99/ month

    19. A vegan wrinkle paste for pugs, Frenchies, Boston Terriers, and other smooshy-faced breeds. The paste soothes and heals redness, chafing, infections and sores, and helps eliminate crust. And if their folds are a little, shall we say, less-than-fresh-smelling? It helps with that, too.

    Promising review: "So far, so good. We’ve been using it about a week and a half, missing a day or two, and so far we’ve seen a significant reduction in the amount of acne on our dog’s snout. He’s a pug mix, which makes him extremely prone to acne. What’s even more important is that there is no more redness or inflammation around his acne, which means he’s not irritated by it or itching it anymore. No more itching, no more scabs, and in addition, it helped to quickly heal the scabs he already had! I would definitely recommend it for acne or irritation." —J.R.

    Price: $14.95+ or Subscribe & Save for $14.20+/ month (available in three sizes)

    20. A set of self-adhesive furniture shields that you can use to protect leather, wooden or upholstered chairs, couches, tables, and anything else your favorite little monsters like to dig their claws into.

    Promising review: "I wish I had found this sooner, it would have saved my favorite chair from my cat. I put these on every piece of furniture that the cat likes to scratch and no more scratching. Wish I could give this 10 stars!" —Rose

    Price: $14.99

    21. A portable pooper scooper with built-in bag dispenser, for folks who love to take their dogs for walks, but never quite got used to the part where you have to carry that gross little baggie all the way home in your hand. It even clips onto your leash or key chain!,

    Promising review: "I’m in love with this. I appreciate not having to feel the warmth of the poo while picking it up, and it helps contain the smell if we have to walk a bit before we can dispose of it." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $13.99+ (available in sizes M-L and two colors)

    22. A small cordless trimmer that is especially good for cutting down the hair on ears, feet and between toes.

    Promising review: "I love these dog clippers! Hands down the best I have ever used. So easy to cut around small paw pads. Did a super job. Quiet. The first time I used these clippers to trim my nervous Pomeranian's paws, she fell asleep!" —PomMom

    Price: $18.88+ (available in two colors)

    23. A package of hypoallergenic, alcohol-and-paraben-free pet wipes, so you can clean up newborn puppies, pups who've had surgery or an injury and can't bathe, or just doggos who could use a little day-to-day spot cleaning (yes, I'm talking about butts). Plus, the wipes are made from bamboo, so they're more ecologically friendly than other wipes!

    A reviewer photo of one of the wipes

    Promising review: "Love these wipes! We have two large rescue dogs, and one has sensitive skin and grass allergies that make him chew incessantly on his paws. He also HATES baths and pretty much refuses to take one, so these things are a miracle. I used about six wipes on him from nose to tail and he seemed to really enjoy the experience. He was visibly cleaner afterward, with a shiny soft coat and a MUCH more pleasant smell about him! We got the 'unscented' variety, due to his sensitivities, and there was no adverse reaction. The wipes still have a very light fragrance, though, something that’s clean and fresh; I’m guessing it’s coming from the aloe, awapuhi, and/or some other ingredient. I’ve also used them to wipe out the other dog’s ears and they worked like a charm for that, too. I would definitely recommend these to other pet owners. In fact, I think I’m going to get another pack to keep in the car for pet and human use alike! :)" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $11.99+ or Subscribe & Save for $10.79+/ month (available in scented or non-scented, and four sizes)

    24. A self-cleaning brush that lets you take "clean out the dog brush" off your to-do list. Just push the brush's button and the bristles will disappear, leaving you with a big chunk of fur to throw out, wear as an avant garde hat, etc.

    Promising review: "So easy to pop the hair out of the brush after using it on the dog. I can't believe what a time saver this brush is. Our dog loves getting brushed, but after only a few strokes, the brush would be filled with hair and we'd have to stop to pull it all out. Don't need to do that anymore! One push of the button and the bristles pull back, the hair drops out, and we can keep brushing. It has made a huge difference in how much hair we have around the house on the floor, because we're brushing it out rather than letting him shed it. Highly recommend this because it works so well and our dog loves it!" —Alice

    Price: $15.99

    25. A bird poop cleaning spray, because it makes removing poop odors and stains easy...and when you're talking about cleaning up poop, you absolutely want the word "easy" to be in there.

    Promising review: "This works quickly and easily to clean bird poop off of all kinds of surfaces. I spritz it, leave it for a few minutes, then wipe right off! Way better than the soaking, scraping, and scrubbing I’ve always had to do. So much easier! Especially on the wooden perches, and my window sills where my birds love to sit. It has a very nice, clean smell that’s kind of plant-y and very fresh. Awesome for bird lovers, so glad I gave it a try and won’t go without it for now on!" —Leah
