    28 Underrated Pet Products That Are Actually Worth Purchasing

    Your fur baby will thank you, too.

    1. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement with salmon fish oil, omega-3 fatty acids, and natural probiotics to help alleviate your pet's itching and scratching while improving their digestion and adding shine to their pretty lil' coat. Now your pup can proceed with being a ~very good~ girl or boy without discomfort from allergies. ❤️

    2. A reviewer-beloved broom for pet hair that'll loosen all the fur trapped in your carpet (!); plus, it has a built-in squeegee for cleaning up liquids (or broken glass!) and a rubber head to remove hair on wood and linoleum. PS: The handle extends from 36–60 inches, so it'll be able to reach pretty much any mess you or your mischievous fur angel makes.

    3. An adorable stuffed duck — it's basically tear-resistant, and dogs L O V E it. And since this thing is built 👏 to 👏 last 👏, you can stop spending oodles of money on toys that your pup destroys in less than 30 seconds. A win-win if there ever was one.

    4. A mountable cat-grooming brush to act as a ~third scratching hand~ if your fur baby's demands for petting are, in a word, CEASELESS. Just attach its adhesive to a corner and witness both of your lives changing for the better.

    5. A bestselling stain and odor eliminator for cat and dog accidents so you can *finally* get rid of the stain from your furry friend that has been haunting you and stinking up your carpet, floor, or couch for too long. It also works for cleaning up kennels, pet carriers, and litter boxes!

    To use, apply the product to the stain and let sit for 30–60 minutes. Then blot and let air-dry.

    Promising review: "My Yorkie developed kidney disease and now drinks more than her body weight in water only to have it promptly come out the other end. She no longer seems to care whether she hits the pee pads, and I literally spend my days cleaning up urine, fecal matter, and barf from this animal. Despite people raving about Nature's Miracle...I discovered immediately that it did nothing to rid the smell deposited by this seven-pound peeing machine! I tried Clorox, Resolve, Furry Freshness, and the list goes on and on. I finally decided to try Rocco & Roxie's and was SHOCKED at how well it worked! I have resisted writing a review because I honestly believed it was too good to be true and that at any moment the smell would return. But after four years of using it (over six gallons worth), I feel it's finally safe to say the smell is NOT coming back!!! Does it have a strong smell when using it? Yes...quite a bit. BUT...the smell DOES dissipate, and it truly does neutralize the urine smell!!! I can happily say that it ALSO gets rid of the stain!!! I have used this on urine, feces, AND vomit, and it rocks!! a whole lot of time; buy this product! It is worth every penny!!!" —K. Foster

    Rocco & Roxie Supply Co. is a family-owned small business named after the family's Labradoodle and rescued tabby. They specialize in pet tools, treats, and toys!

    6. An automatic pet feeder so you can make sure your angel darling is fed on time even if you get home late, are (bless) napping, or in a Zoom meeting.

    7. The ChomChom pet hair remover roller to once and for all conquer the mounds of hair your furry friend has showered your home with (and the LOTS of not-so-visible hair that you didn't even know was there, as reviewers attest to). Prepare to be wowed, *literally*, by how clean and, well, new your stuff will look once you've put this thing to the test.

    8. A nail file board so that nail clipping will be a FAR less stressful experience for you AND your pup – meaning less time wrestling with each other over the dreaded pair of clippers. All you have to do is rub your pooch's nails on this pad, and you're done.

    9. A cat hammock your kitties will *love* gazing out of and sunbathing in, with powerful window-suctioning capabilities and ample space. I need a human version TBH!

    10. Some calming bites for anxious, high-strung, or extremely high-energy pets, formulated to soothe without causing drowsiness. They're particularly useful before traveling, after meals, or during frightening thunder and fireworks.

    11. An ergonomic litter scoop if you want to revolutionize the way you scoop poop. Ahem: The scoop has tall side walls to ~excavate~ more litter than regular scoops *and* keeps your hands blissfully far away from the waste zone. It also holds several loads (!!!) so you don't have to make as many trips from the litter box to the trash can.

    12. A pack of matatabi chew sticks in case catnip is just not your kitty's thing. Matatabi is a safe catnip alternative and a plant native to Japan. Even better, the stick helps keep their teeth clean.

    13. Or a wall-mounted catnip toy that is sure to make you your kitty's favorite hooman. This fun groove board contains four all-natural flavored balls to delight and pique their interest — catnip, silvervine, gall fruit, and cat sugar. It also helps improve your feline's oral health, reducing dental plaque and odorous breath as they lick and bite the rotating balls.

    14. A ridged slow feeder bowl for preventing your dog from inhaling their food in what can only be described as a lightning fast amount of time — and as a result, help improve their digestion, reduce bloating, and keep their mind active.

    15. A delightful Wobble Wag Giggle ball with a battery-free internal noisemaker that'll engage your pup's curiosity and instinct to play. It has four ~clutch pockets~ so your pet can roll, carry, and shake the toy with ease. It's safe to say this will be your best game of fetch ever.

    16. A creamy paw butter for cats and dogs to moisturize dry, cracked paws and snouts. It's made with natural ingredients like oatmeal and shea butter, so it's A-OK if they lick or swallow it.

    17. A pack of paw-cleaning tablets to soothe your pup's itchy, irritated paws, especially if they've been licking off the salves you've applied. These tea tree oil and aloe-packed tablets dissolve in water, so just five minutes of soaking your babe's paw pads will help hydrate *and* clear away irritants from walks and everyday life.

    18. An automatic water fountain that'll encourage your kitty to stay hydrated, since a lot of cats dislike still water due to (in short) evolution — so they may well prefer a fountain with running water.

    19. A wood polish to conceal the copious scratch marks your pet's nails left on your wood floor and the bottom of your doors.

    20. A soft, impossibly sweet fruit tart pet bed you truly won't know who loves more — you or your fur baby. PS: The pieces of fruit double as moveable cushions 😭

    21. A durable three-level cat tower that wins the prize for being practical yet fun. It sports a plush cat bed on top and a hanging ball on each level for your babies to bat around as they please. Your kitties will *love* the privacy this cat tree offers along with the spacious windows they can poke their sweet heads out of to chill with you at their ~leisure~. Did I mention it comes preassembled??!!

    22. An easy-to-use, tasty dental powder to sprinkle in your pet's food that'll protect their chompers from plaque and prevent bad breath. It's formulated by veterinarians with probiotics and nutrients like zinc, taurine, cranberry powder, and vegetable fats that support gum health.

    23. A food tracker so you can keep track of whether someone already fed Sparky breakfast (because we know his sad puppy dog eyes can't be trusted), and make sure your pet isn't being under- or over-fed.

    24. A soft, touch-activated purring cat toy for soothing anxious kitties by simulating the calming, familiar sensation of curling up to another purring "cat."

    25. An interactive, much-beloved cat toy that'll simply (literally?) knock your kitty off its feet. Prepare for all the other toys you've purchased over the years to pale in comparison.

    26. A pack of, in a word, awesome recordable answer buzzers if you've seen the TikToks of folks training their pets to "talk" and need to try it out for yourself (same). Gone are the days of worrying about whether your pup needs to go outside to pee or not — now they can just tell you.

    27. An under-the-door cat toy, because in case you didn't know there are toys made specifically for using *under* a door, there sure are. This knitted plaything is perf for kitties who love pawing or biting at strings (or fingers) under doors.

    28. A set of stylish yet functional stainless steel elevated cat bowls fit for your princess or prince. The bowls are specially angled to reduce neck strain, and feature a deep, wide design to help prevent whisker fatigue (aka overstimulation).
