    1. A wrinkle paste to clean up tear stains and underneath wrinkles, keeping your K-9 clean in (basically) every nook and cranny.

    A reviewer's bulldog sitting beside the tube of wrinkle paste

    Promising review: "This cream is a miracle worker. My English bulldog had yeast in his wrinkles. I cleaned every day with hydrogen peroxide but it didn't clear it up. It just kept it from getting worse. One night I came across this product. Within 24 hours of using it I noticed a huge difference. Within 48 hours it was almost gone. By 72 hours it had cleared up. I clean his face before bed and apply the cream. I can't say my bully loves it, because seriously what bully likes having their wrinkles cleaned? He tolerates it and I love that it works for us. It has no smell, it's natural, and it WORKS!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $20.43.

    2. A pair of mini clippers you can use to spruce up the spots around your critter's paws, eyes, ears, face, and rear end...making sure your pet isn't behind on the latest haircut trends.


    Promising review: "I have a 13-year-old Yorkie who is a rescue. He has always been nervous to go to a groomer, so I have learned to groom him. When the hair between the pads on his feet gets long, it causes him to slip on the hardwood floors. It is very difficult to get in between them with a regular pet grooming buzzers, because it's too big. We always wrestle when it comes to this part, but it has to be done. When using this product for the first time, he honestly fell asleep. He will fall asleep while I'm grooming him laying down, and I'll have to roll him over when needing to trim the other side. It is very quite, and he actually enjoyed, for the first time, trimming the hair between his toes and pads of his feet. I'm delighted to have found and purchased this item!" —Renee Rice

    Get it from Amazon for $18.89+ (available in two colors).

    3. And a pair of larger, low-volume clippers that'll keep your pet feeling comfortable and help you stand being around your shedding sweetheart in the summertime.,

    This clipper includes four guard combs and has a rechargeable battery.

    Promising review: "This is my first time ever using clippers on my dog (we have always had shorthair). I got this to try to save about $50 a month and I am not disappointed in the slightest. We have an Aussie doodle with A LOT of hair, with it getting hot here recently he has been miserable and before I took him to the groomers I decided to see what I could do. It turned out great! He looks great!! I was also able to do my mother’s dog. She has a cocker spaniel, chihuahua, shitzu mix with very coarse hair. They still worked great. We have already gotten our monies worth!!" —Ashley Smith

    Get them from Amazon for $39.99 (available in four styles).

    4. A pet hair dryer you can use if you hate the smell of wet dog so much you'd rather have just not washed your pup in the first place. This dries your pet's fur, makes it shiny and slick, *and* can relax stressed out pets with its warmth, even when you aren't washing up.

    Promising review: "I can’t say enough good things about this little brush! It’s super lightweight and compact, the dryer is quiet enough to not scare my pets, and the brush is soft but sturdy enough to get them completely dry in minutes!! I used to worry that I would burn my dog with my hair dryer, even on the lowest setting. This little brush is the perfect temperature and I could tell she even loved how warm it was while she was drying off. My cat was not exactly ready to model for the camera but was very well groomed after using the brush! This has made bath time 100 times easier!" —Maricarmen

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in two styles).

    5. An Aquapaw Slow Treater that'll keep your fluffer in the bath long enough to finally get her fluffy! Just throw some peanut butter or other pasty treat in the grooves and let her lick away while you scrub her up!

    This is safe to put in the dishwasher and freezer AND it's made from FDA-grade silicone.

    Promising review: "I just finished cutting toenails on my three dogs with their total cooperation, thanks to this product. I just put squirt cheese in between the nubs of the slow treater, laid it on the grooming table, and the dogs were happily licking away while I worked on their feet. No pulling away, no second person to hold the dog, just me, some cheese, and the Slow Treater. I’m a fan!" —D. Dipietro

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    6. An instant shampoo for moments when your little critter is smelling...less than fresh.


    This is suitable for hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs, and other small animals.

    Promising review: "I love this stuff! I have a rabbit that doesn't like to sit still for too long, so I can't give her a bath. After just a spray or two of this she smells so fresh and clean!" —Amber Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

    7. A tube of chicken-flavored toothpaste that'll taste so good to your hungry pup that they'll actually sit still while you clean those teeth. Now you'll no longer be too ~chicken~ to shove a brush in Buddy's mouth., Amazon

    Promising review: "This is my dog's favorite toothpaste! Every night he comes upstairs to have his teeth brushed and won't go to bed until this demand is met. He only likes this brand, funny boy!" —FeFe

    Get it from Amazon for $12.61.

    8. A mod lounge scratcher for feline friends who prefer keeping their claws clean and filed all by themselves.

    A reviewer's cat lounging on the cat scratcher and yawning

    Promising review: "This is amazing. I bought mine over a year ago now and my cats LOVE them. I have two cats, one we got as a kitten — she knows to scratch on it and has never scratched our furniture! I hung them up like shelves and the cats love to climb up high to hang out on them, sleep, stretch, and survey the house. My friends don't even realize they're cat shelves until the cats jump on them! Fast-forward to over a year later and they're still in pretty good shape. These are worth the money!" —Jayni

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95 (available in two colors).

    9. A hydrating body spray that's gonna add a long-lasting lovely scent to your pet's coat without drying out their natural oils.

    The Bark Shoppe

    The Bark Shoppe is a great stop for pet parents who are focused on supporting Black-owned businesses!

    Get it from The Bark Shoppe for $9.99 (available in four scents).

    10. A paw plunger that'll keep your four-legged friend's feet clean as a whistle (you know, that whistle you do to convince them to "Get out of the mud this instant!").

    A reviewer's before and after photo of their poodle's very dirty paw with the fur completely clean after using the brush mug. There is still some minimal residue in the footpads.

    Promising review: "This was the best money I've ever spent on my dog's feet. My dog has curly hair and large paws, and our yard is 95% sand. In the past three months I've been wiping his paws ineffectively and spending most of my housekeeping time sweeping/vacuuming all the sand that he brings in. Our new veterinarian, upon hearing me whine about the situation, recommended I buy this product because she uses it with her own dogs. From the first time I used it I was sold! It looks like one of those oversized water jugs you can get at a convenience store, with a fitted insert for paws and legs. I stuck my hand (and my kids') inside to try it out and the bristles inside are very soft and will not hurt sensitive paw pads. I wish I'd found this years ago; it would have saved my sanity and my floors many times over. I've already recommended it to my friends and family with dogs who understand the struggle." —Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two colors and sizes).

    11. A flea and tick repellent, because finding any creepy crawlies on your best friend while brushing is sure to ~bug~ you both.

    Promising review: "This rosemary and cedar wood spray keeps the mosquitoes and buffalo gnats from eating me and my dog alive! I am so grateful for this all natural, non-toxic product! I can't go outside around the neighborhood without it. One application lasts my dog all day. I love this stuff!" —Autumn

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in four scents).

    12. And a flea comb that's gonna comb out any insects that dare touch their derriere.,

    Promising review: "I'm sold. My dogs have never had fleas but I bought this for ticks now that we've been finding them on our dogs so frequently. The dog's hair should be without tangles but my dogs have fairly short hair and don't seem to mind when it catches sometimes. I've used it a few times now in the two days I've had the comb. We combed a tick that we could visibly see on the dog's legs and the comb caught it and kept it between the tongs — dipping the comb in water got it right out. I'm hopeful it will get ticks that we don't see immediately too." —Tanya L

    Get it from Amazon for $4.60.

    13. An undercoat deshedding tool for deep-cleaning your short haired, shedding loved ones.

    Promising review: "I definitely recommend this!! My big ol' 75 pound Boxer, Bruiser, is the best lap dog and cuddler but his coat sheds sooo much and leave tons of white hair EVERYWHERE! I can’t leave the house without looking like walking toupee. After reading reviews for this product/model, I decided to give it a shot. After just the first pass of the tool, it remove even more hair than after his bath! I continued for about 10 minutes and Bruiser sat there patiently and actually seemed to kind of enjoy it. I love the concept and the visible release of hair and I’m excited to see long term progress after regular use." —Monique

    Get it from Amazon for $30 (available in four styles and three sizes).

    14. A box of chlorhexidine wipes that can be used as antiseptic cleaning and relief of irritated or inflamed areas on pets who suffer from allergies or acne (TBH, same).

    Promising review: "The first picture of our Doberman was taken on April 18th (above, left). He was getting really bad chin acne and when he’d bump into you or boop you the acne would start to bleed. Sometimes the scabs would bleed and it was a never ending cycle. We tried a lot of creams but nothing was working. I ordered these wipes the first time back in April or May and I would use them twice a day to start. His acne slowly started to dry up, leaving only scabs. The bleeding became less often and soon stopped. After that the scabs went away and his little chin hairs started to grow back. It is now June 16th and the picture is how his chin looks this morning (above, right). This is going to be our daily routine and is something that needs to be maintained for our pup since it works! I’ve also used it in between his paws when he starts to itch or on hot spots. So far I haven’t found anything it doesn’t work on. Our dobie doesn’t really like the smell but it’s not a bad smell. I also use this formula to clean his ears. If your pupper is going through puberty or has some hot spots I recommend trying these wipes." —Caroline Cypres

    Get it from Amazon for $11.04.

    15. A pack of grooming wipes so you can wipe away messes in an instant and get your dog smelling as fresh as the daisies she was just destroying in the back yard.


    Promising review: "I use these to wipe my pup's paws after walks and to do a once-over when he's had play dates and comes home smelling like an assortment of other dogs. The first thing that I noticed was the fabulous texture. The thickness and texture really make paw-wiping a breeze. I also noticed after just a day of use, my pup's fur felt SO soft, but without a residue feeling. It's also not causing any kind of reaction with his sensitive skin. There is a mild scent, but nothing that appears artificial or over-powering. I will purchase again (and again, and again)." —Yoo Ar

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99 (available in two scents).

    16. A dog raincoat that'll keep you from having to give Fido a full-on bath after he's already walked out in the rain and seems officially fed up with water for the day.

    A product shot of a dog wearing the raincoat with the hood over their head

    Promising review: "I love these raincoats. They are tough, cute, and keep my dogs dry. I have purchased other flimsy raincoats that did not keep my dogs dry. I am extremely pleased with these. The little hoods are cute too. I got these so that I only have to dry off their feet when they return from their walk. These sturdy little coats are great. My furry kids seem to like them and they stay in place without slipping and sliding. This is a fantastic price for great product. Awesome!" —Barbara N.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL).

    17. A grooming rake for pets whose summer shedding season is a far bigger job than raking leaves in the fall.

    A reviewer's German shepherd sitting in front of this handheld raking brush and a massive lump of fur

    Promising review: "I wish I could give this thing seven stars, but five will have to do. I was able to pull entire sheets of undercoat out of our husky without disturbing the topcoat. I've never had anything work so well. It's even easier to keep the fur pile together. The fur stays clumped, instead of getting spread out and floating around. This thing really digs the loose stuff out so much faster and easier." —pvfjr

    Get it from Amazon for $11.89.

    18. An oatmeal conditioner to make your pup feel so fresh and clean they're gonna think this stuff is the (Burt's) bee's knees.

    A reviewer holding up the bottle of conditioner with their dog in the background

    Promising review: "My senior basset hound has very dry skin. This conditioner was nice and helped moisturize without making his coat oily. It has a pleasant smell that isn't overpowering." —Katherine W.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.52 (available in three styles).

    19. A self-grooming cat toy you can attach to any corner of your home to give your cat a spiffy space to self-soothe *and* clean themselves off.

    Promising review: "I got this for my three-legged cat because he can't scratch his left side. He'll be trying to scratch and all you see is his little nub going crazy. I found these and he immediately LOVED it! The expression on his face when he first tried it was priceless (pictured above). The only downside is that it's possible it'll fall off because it was hard for me to get all pieces of tape to stick on a corner at the same time, but I can always buy more double sided tape so not a big deal to me. The product is for Floyd, not me, and he's happy so five stars." —Pippa Runs

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    20. A slicker brush that removes surface mats and detangles so even long, wirey coats can be clean and look luscious.,

    Promising review: "We are using this for our 85 pound oh-so-shaggy golden doodle (pictured above, right). It has changed our lives for the better! No more mats with the regular upkeep and it will save us from having to take him to the groomers and ending up with a shorn pup. This is definitely a great purchase for those with shaggy or blended coat breeds. My fellow doodle owners will understand!" —R. Langshaw-Simon

    Get it from Amazon for $4.82+ (available in two sizes).

    21. A nail grinder that'll trim your dog's nails so well you won't want to ~file~ this away for later, you'll want your paws on it right now!

    A reviewer trimming their dog's nails with the nail grinder

    Promising review: "Our 11-year-old border collie mix has never been a fan of having her nails clipped. My husband was the only person who could come near her with a clipper and even then, our dog got very anxious. I was not entirely optimistic that this nail grinder would be any easier to use. I did as suggested, and acclimated our dog to the grinder for a couple of weeks by letting her see it, smell it, feel it (while it was turned off), and gave her treats for every instance. When we tried actually using it on her for the first time, she didn't react at all. Except to jump up and run over to the cabinet where her treats are kept when we finished with her nails. The grinder does make a noise, of course, but it's not loud or scary to my dog who is afraid of everything. It's easy to use and does a good job. I'm very pleased with this purchase!" —DLyman

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in two colors).

    22. Or nail clippers for rambunctious pets who don't have a ~lick~ of patience and need a faster solution.


    Promising review: "I bought these for my Siberian husky and they work perfectly. Her nails are thick and they were able to cut through them without a problem. I highly recommend them." —Olivia

    Get them from Amazon for $8.69

    23. A nose and paw balm, because your dog nose a little lotion will help their dried-out areas after a day of play.


    Promising review: "I got this stuff for my boyfriend's dog. In just a week his nose shed its dry skin. I always appreciate before and after photos when it comes to reviews, so enjoy (after/before images pictured above)!" —Miki

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    24. Or a de-shedding glove that'll make your friends say, "I've gotta ~hand~ it to you, your pet's fur looks fantastic."

    These gloves are gentle and particularly helpful for aging, arthritic pets. You can read my BuzzFeeder coworker's post to learn why pet owners swear by this brush.

    Promising review: "First let me say that I almost NEVER write product reviews. We have two hairy, senior, sister German Shepherd dogs. Lots of dog hair to be had — it seems like just looking at them makes hair fly off of them. Regular grooming with the Furminator removes a lot of hair but the dogs will only tolerate its use on their backs and sides, due to tender arthritic joints and generalized soreness from aging. So, I thought I would give this product a try — what a difference! While the gloves do not remove quite as much as hair as the Furminator, there are other distinct advantages for their use. They can be easily used over the whole body — including legs, soft belly, tail, and even the head. All areas can actually be massaged, which the dogs clearly enjoy. The dogs LOVE this. In fact, as soon as they see the gloves they go into their happy dance, happy face mode, while hip-checking each other out of the way to be first in line. Since using the gloves for a while now it seems that the quality of their coats is actually better. Their coats are softer and more glossy. Bottom line: these gloves have been absolutely great for my aging, hairy dogs." —celtic wife

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    25. A bag of dental dog treats to help your pup ~brush up~ on their oral hygiene.

    Greenies Dental Treats

    Promising review: "My dog LOVES these treats. He even opens up the closet where I keep them and carries the bag around in his mouth to remind me to give him one!" —Karen Klein

    Get them from Amazon for $14.98.

    26. A handheld shower attachment so you can finally wash Skippy without getting a shower yourself.

    A dachshund being washed with the handheld attachment. The water stream is long and thing, so you can brush the water over their body easily and gently.

    Promising review: "Owners of long-haired/thick-coated breeds: this is what you've been looking for. I've waited over 20 years for this and have used everything from custom heads to kitchen wash heads. The water flow from this even at low pressure is excellent, the adjustments on the handle are thought out well, and this WILL get right through a thick undercoat." —Animal Doctor

    Get it from Amazon for $33.

    27. A pack of shower gloves that'll be massively ~handy~ when scrubbing a pet who prefers snuggles to showers.

    Amazon, Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    My husband and I use these on our cats and it has made bathtime much more efficient! The cats love being pet and it makes lathering so much easier. Ever tried to wash a cat's armpit? I'm pretty sure it's only possible thanks to these. And this has nothing to do with grooming per say, but you can also get your pet a similar pool float for bathtime fun/Instagram worthy photos.

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $11.99.

    28. A soft grip cat comb that'll brush away bugs, dirt, shedding hair, and other types of tiny gunk that gets on your adventurous kitto.,

    Just FYI, this isn't a flea comb. You'll want something smaller if getting rid of fleas is your goal!

    Promising review: "This comb is excellent. The loose hair collects in the teeth and does not cause a mess by flying everywhere. The hair then slides right off in a nice, tight little bundle. My cat loves being brushed with this comb. Be careful not to press down when using this comb, just run it softly over the coat and it will sink in on its own and remove the loose coat hair. I am very pleased with this product." —Nickname Sin

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    29. And finally, a small pet grooming kit so that grooming your littlest pets doesn't have to be a big job.


    This kit includes a pin brush (to reduce shedding), a bristle brush (that'll make fur shine), and chew treat, and nail clippers.

    Promising review: "This is a great product at a great price. My guinea pig loves getting her nails trimmed and these scissors are great quality and sharp! It’s a snap. She loves getting brushed and throwing around her toy as well. I would buy this product again but I don’t think I will need to for a long time because they are going to last awhile." —I<3MyWife!

    Get it from Amazon for $7.10+ (available in three styles).
