    Promising review: "The selling point to these bags is the size. I have a golden retriever who well... leaves mammoth-sized gifts and I live in an apartment and I am a responsible dog owner so I purchase these. Actually just purchased my second box yesterday. I love these bags. I went through several varieties before I discovered these and they are well worth the cost." —xayekim

    Promising review: "I bought these expecting that my girl wouldn't try them. Her favorite treats were out of stock so I went with these. She's very very picky and hates trying new things, but she immediately went for these! I just had to hold it out and she snatched it right out of my hand. She absolutely loves these! I think she has another favorite. My other rabbit and guinea pigs also love these!" —Mariah

    Promising review: "These little bamboo sticks are awesome! I have three bunnies (2 mini lops and a Netherland dwarf) and they are all so different that it is hard to find a treat they will agree on. Enter these sweet bamboo sticks. They are all so excited when they hear the bag and they run around to find the perfect spot to enjoy their stick alone. If one of them finishes first, that bun will chase the other ones for the scraps. Aside from their stamp of approval, I love this sticks because they are much healthier than the treats you can buy at a chain store. Plus, chewing sticks like this helps keep the buns' chompers trim. I have already ordered these twice and will be ordering them again." —RaeMae

Whenever they see me with one in my hand, they get super excited and run to me. I've bought these around five times now!" —Mariah

    Promising review: "New hamster loves this food. Well, he saves the brown log things for last, but I think that's because all the other stuff tastes better (I would too). There's corn, split peas, a variety of different seeds, fruit-loop looking things, it goes on and on. Great variety and I'm happy to feed it to my daughter's new hamster." —C. White

    Promising review: "I always buy this sand for my hamsters to bath in because all of the pet stores around me only sell dust which is bad for them since the dust can cause breathing problems. My 4 little hamsters always enjoy getting fresh new sand, jumping right into it and doing barrel rolls." —Whitney

    Promising review: "Not full of junk, and our rabbits think they're getting treats! After a long day of lounging about on the living room rug or exploring the kitchen for stray snacks, a couple of tablespoons of these take the edge off the inevitable return to the cage before the humans go to bed. We also will put these inside of boxes, plain brown paper lunch bags, or glue-free paper towel or toilet paper tubes, fold over the edges, and give them to the rabbits as toys. There's nothing like seeing a rabbit run around the living room carrying a lunch bag!" —Chronic Pedestrian

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (or Subscribe & Save for $13.29/month; available in three sizes).

    16. A package of cage liners made with the odor-controlling powers of Arm & Hammer so cleanup is a breeze and you never have to tolerate a funky smell again.,

    Promising review: "These are very good at absorbing all the pee from our rabbit and do a very good job at keeping the odor down. The pads are nice and big, covering almost the entire bottom of the cage. When it's cleaning time, everything just slides right out because the pad keeps anything from sticking to the bottom of the cage. A little spray with cage cleaner and a wipe down with a paper towel and the cage is ready to refill and put the bunny back in.

    I'd say the biggest difference between these and any other brand of cage liner is the odor control. Nothing else I've used even comes close to being as good." —Jack H.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.94 (or Subscribe & Save for $13.24/month).

    17. A package of guinea pig food with hay to support digestive health, vitamin C, prebiotics, and probiotics because your GP deserves a delicious meal that'll keep them nice and strong.

    Promising review: "My guinea pig really likes this food. It's packed with long lasting vitamin C so that's good. It's also timothy hay based which is better for your GP than alfalfa based. No corn ingredients, no mixed seeds and junk that is bad for your GP. The only problem is that my GP doesn't seem to care for the hay strands in the bag. He just likes the pellets." —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97 (or Subscribe & Save for $6.62/month; available in four flavors).

    18. A bag of starch-free food for ferrets that includes protein, probiotics, prebioitics, enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to keep your fur baby's tummy happy.

    Promising review: "I’ve been feeding my ferrets for three years with this easy digestive formula (the regular formula did gave them terrible diarrhea) My ferrets are more energetic and healthy." —RandB

    Get it from Amazon for $24.79 (or Subscribe & Save for $24.79/month).

    19. A gentle ferret shampoo with aloe vera and jojoba oil so your pet's coat stays shiny, while enzymes work to fight any odors.,

    Promising review: "This stuff is great. Baby ferret is happy! Huge bottle of soap if you have one ferret and only wash it twice a year." —Sativa Verte

    Get it from Amazon for $5.39 (or Subscribe & Save for $5.39/month).

    20. And a bottle of cage cleaning spray for deodorizing and sanitizing your pet's home without irritating your pet's respiratory system.

    The bottle of cleaning spray

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of the claims of this product and the reviews I had read since it seems like a pretty mild cleaner, but I used this on my two male mice's cages, tunnels and hideouts and I'm blown away. I previously didn't think anything short of running the blazing waters of the underworld with mild soap over their stuff for several minutes would get the stank out of their stuff, but this stuff works... It doesn't take a crazy amount nor does it take several attempts to get things nice and neutralized either. My only regret is honestly not purchasing this sooner." —Mu
