    1. An ear treatment to clean your poor pet's ears of buildup and prevent inflammation and irritation. These ear drops are designed to protect against a variety of fungal and bacterial infections, like yeast and staph infections.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog has had chronic ear infections for years now. Every other month or so she’d get an infection and $200 later we’d have meds from the vet who confirmed what we already knew. I finally decided to give an unprescribed treatment a try and it worked AMAZINGLY. Followed the instructions for a week, and her ear is completely healed! Much easier to pay $20 as opposed to $200 when you get the same results! I highly recommend." —Fromal16

    Get it from Amazon for $21.98+ (available in three sizes).

    2. A pack of paw protection cream you'll use year round to guard against scorching hot sidewalks and sand in the summer and ice and salt in the winter. It's made with vitamin E to keep the paw pads moisturized, but some reviewers use it on their dry, cracked heels as well as their tattoos.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog has extremely dry and cracked paws, so rough she gets stuck to the carpet. I've tried just about everything, all failed for various reasons. This product works. I was only able to do one paw the first time, she fought me like a demon. Next time she let me do all four with little fuss, she likes the result. I followed everyone's lead and put it on right before walks. I've noticed that she wants to run and jump more, and genuinely is happy with her feet. One downside is because it softens the pads you have to be careful where they step; she picked up a thorny branch where before the treatment it wouldn't penetrate. Fair trade in my opinion; now we can play and snuggle without her scratching me up. Bottom line: love it, the dog loves it, good value little goes a long ways.Peggy

    Get it from Amazon for $12.74+ (available in eight sizes).

    3. A pet brush that'll do the hard work of detangling your pet's matted fur while also removing dead hair to reduce shedding and keep your vacuumed floors fur-free. The stainless steel blade is packed with tiny teeth that are long enough to grasp loose hairs in your dog's or cat's undercoat.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great product! I have a five-month-old lab who would scream when I brushed her. With this brush she relaxes and I get five times as much hair off. I didn't know she had that much loose hair! Buying another for my brother!" —Katie Boone

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    4. An antibacterial toothpaste for pets that'll help prevent plaque buildup and is safe to swallow. The vanilla mint scent won't make you want to barf like meat-flavored animal toothpastes, and your fur baby will love the taste.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I write this for Pabu, a Shih Tzu. The vanilla mint flavor disappeared for a long time and Pabu would refuse all other flavors. This arrived yesterday and he went right for the first link. Happy breath and dental care again. Woo-hoo!" —Mikah

    Get it from Amazon for $9.

    5. A bag of oral hygiene chews to loosen built-up plaque and tartar on your dog's teeth. Think of it as a treat to them and yourself — no more expensive cleanings at the vet's office.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We have small dogs with dental issues. After second cleaning, vet recommended trying these chews. Results amazing! Reduced existing tartar. Clean teeth for two years now. A little pricey, but you avoid vet cost and risk of sedating pet. Sometimes the chews are too hard for our chihuahuas, so I place in a wet paper towel and microwave for 20 seconds. Let cool and they are good to go." —M. Thomas

    Get them from Amazon for $10.83+ (available in four sizes).

    6. An easy-to-use dental powder you sprinkle in your pet's food to protect their teeth from plaque and to ward off bad breath. Each sprinkle is packed with probiotics and nutrients like zinc, taurine, cranberry powder, and vegetable fats to support gum health.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I began to use this product on my doberman at about one year. He is now four years old and the vet says his teeth and gums are amazing. I have never done any dental work with him and do not brush his teeth. He has fresh breath and no tooth decay or gum issues. I absolutely credit Perio Support for his healthy mouth ans will always use it on my dogs." —HappytoGrill

    Get it from Amazon for $15.

    7. A cleansing wrinkle cream that'll wash away tear stains and prevent moisture from building up in skin folds. This is especially useful for squishy-faced breeds — like Frenchies, bull dogs, and pugs — but long-haired breeds can also benefit too.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "AMAZING!!! My baby has wrinkles on top of wrinkles. This product has saved him! He was rubbing his face so hard on things to scratch in between his wrinkles that his whole face would break out and get irritated and his tail pocket gets so yeasty, red, and irritated. I put this product in every little crevice he has. It is soooo amazing!! We don’t ever travel without it! I will forever buy this product. Lifesaver!" —Heather Erin

    Get it from Amazon for $20.72.

    8. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement for dogs with skin allergies. These soft chews deliver a dose of probiotics and other nutrients to improve immune function, aide digestion, promote healthy skin, and add shine to a dog's coat.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Absolutely the best product. It saved my itchy goldendoodle! We tried changing food, Benadryl, medicated shampoo, fish oil, everything you can imagine... nothing worked long-term. He was itching his face so badly he would make himself bleed. Had sores and scabs all over his face and neck. I bought these because they had good reviews and I was desperate. It changed his life! He no longer scratches AT ALL! His coat looks great and all of his sores are healed. He’s the happiest he’s been which makes me a very happy momma. He is also very picky and never eats treats... he eats these every time so that’s an added bonus!" —Darcie Nation

    Get them from Amazon for $25.97.

    9. Or! An anti-fungal antibacterial spray made with cooling aloe to treat a range of skin conditions, including allergies, cuts, hot spots, infections, rashes, and scrapes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My Frenchie chews on his paws night and day. I’ve tried raw diets, but it was not a food allergy. My dog just produces too much yeast in his paws and tail pocket that he just can’t help it but gnaw in this paws for hours on and scooting his butt to get that itch in that tail pocket. I’ve tried foot soaks, balms, and so many other products, wasting so much money. This is the first product that worked! The smell is very pleasant and easy application; be careful don’t let your dog ingest it. I love this product and won’t be using any other product. Since I’ve been using it, his paws are starting to look normal and not all red/raw and chewed up. I would recommend this to any animal owner to use this if the pets have skin issues." —Uyen Mai Thi Tran

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    10. An eye rinse that'll clear away debris that could be irritating your dog's eyes. Plus, it'll help get rid of tear stains — aka those annoying reddish streaks some dogs have around their eyes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have two Shih Tzus. They had watery eyes and a little tear staining, but this eye solution has worked wonderfully. One drop in their eyes every morning after I’ve cleaned them. At one point I stopped doing it for awhile, and my male ended up with a sty, so back to every day." —CG

    Get it from Amazon for $4.47.

    11. A medicated dog shampoo for managing dandruff, mange, and fungal/bacterial infections. It's designed to treat inflamed, itchy skin and is paraben-, dye-, and soap-free.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Naturally, because of the ingredients, it has a strong smell. However, it does seem to leave my dog's skin feeling dry and provides good relief for her poor itchy skin. My dog Molly is a nine-pound mini dachshund whose little chest makes contact with the grass all the time so her skin gets itchy and irritated. I’ve been bathing her regularly with this shampoo and it is giving her some relief. No more greasy, flaky skin. Her skin and fur is now dry and soft." —Climbyourarms

    Get it from Amazon for $7.72 (available in two sizes and styles).

    12. A nail grinder to trim your pup's claws so you can cuddle without getting scratches all over your legs and arms. It's super quiet and smooth, which is ideal for dogs who get spooked by regular nail clippers.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My older dog (15) has been suffering with long nails for some time. It's affected her ability to walk, and she's always falling. I've taken her to the groomer, tried to clip them myself, taken her walking and none of that helped. I even took her to the vet and had them put her under anesthesia to clip her nails. That didn't do much at all and they recommended I not do that often because of her age. So I got this and hoped for the best. I am beyond impressed and thankful! In one session this has made a huge difference. My dog didn't move or jerk around like she normally does. She just laid there and let me take care of her nails. I could not believe it When we were done and she got up to walk, I could no longer hear the loud tapping on the floors. She is gonna have to get used to walking normally again." —georgiadiva2k

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (also available as a kit with six sanding bands).

    13. An electric pet shaver so trimming your pet's fur is a breeze. This set comes with four guard combs so you don't accidentally nick the skin, as well as a set of clippers. Reviewers say it's quiet — a plus if your pets are sensitive to noise.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this clipper to use on my blind, longhair Persian cat. She was incredibly matted and I had been been neglecting her, dreading the shaving process. I had a different clipper that did not work well and got snagged in her fur. When we used this Oneisall clipper, it was a breeze! It was extremely quiet, clipped easily through her fur, and didn't freak her out. We were able to do her whole body at one time instead of in spurts. I would highly recommend this clipper. It's great!" —Nancy Z

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in three colors).

    14. A blow dryer for your dog that'll save you so much time after your pup's weekly bath. It has two heat settings to avoid burning their skin, plus it's safe to use on pets from teeny-tiny cats to large dog breeds.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's now March 21, 2019, and I bought this back in October 2017. IT STILL FREAKING WORKS Y'ALL. In two years, my dog has never had a mat in her life (with the exception of small mats but I can comb that out!) nor have I ever needed to bring her to the groomers. This is truly the best best thing money can buy for a broke poodle owner on poodle fur maintenance. I'm saving hella money guys!" —Mary Estrella

    Get it from Amazon for $70 (available in two colors).

    15. A portable paw washer so your floors aren't covered in muddy footprints after letting your dog inside. Inside the container are soft bristles that lift dirt and grime from the pads of your pup's feet — all you need to do is add water.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Honestly so happy I bought this. My husband would get frustrated trying to clean the dogs' paws off when the yard gets muddy and I would end up cleaning mud off of our furniture. This is so much easier and even our finicky dogs allow us to use it with virtually no struggle. Easy to empty and refill, feels sturdy." —Jessica A Suggs

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

    16. A tube of FDA-approved sunscreen for dogs to prevent skin damage. Using sun-protection spray is ideal if your dog is having fun in the sun for a few hours, especially if you own a breed that's predisposed to skin cancer. This spray blocks the harmful UVA and UVB rays and offers protection equivalent to SPF 30-40 in human sunscreens.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a white boxer who gets sunburned very easily. Plus, has super sensitive skin. So far out of all of the sunblocks I have tried, this seems to be the only one that does not have perfume in it, and does not irritate his skin, and it works." —julie

    Get it from Amazon for $16.

    17. A 14-piece grooming kit for pets who freak out the moment they hear a razor. Each set comes with seven comb lengths as well as removable gel inserts for the finger holes so you get a better grip.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this product. My 8-year-old rescue pup is absolutely terrified of the electric trimmer — it used to take three people to give him a haircut. Now he’ll sit for me and let me trim him. Granted, it takes longer, but it’s worth not stressing him (and the household) out so much! Pretty even cut and blades are durable." —Sarah Malanga

    Get a 14-piece set from Amazon for $34.99.

    18. A pack of stain-removing pads for the inevitable messes that come with owning a pet. Pee? Check! Poop? Check! Vomit? Check! (You can even use them to clean up your wine spills.)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Our poor older pup started having some incontinence issues and had several accidents in the house. I was really frustrated until I found these. They work amazingly well. They're small, so if the area was larger I had to use two or three, but they pulled up stains and saved the house from being smelly. I even used one on an older stain (that I'm pretty sure wasn't pet related) and it came up after leaving it on for about 24 hours. I make sure to keep a supply of these in the house at all times now." —MC

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $24.99.

    19. A pet hair remover for anyone who's tired of getting fur all over their clothes. Roll it over your couch, bed, favorite blanket, you name it, and watch it lift the fur away. See, we can own nice things!!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes, but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing — he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    20. A handheld vacuum for when you need a heavy-duty solution to pet hair. It has a special rubber nozzle that picks up fur with ease, especially on hard-to-vacuum areas like stairs. There's no bag, so simply pop off the canister when you're done vacuuming and dump the contents in the trash.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy crap!! Are you skeptical when it comes to buying stuff online? ME TOO! That's why I figured all of these rave reviews were a crock of crap. I've seriously bought every kind of vacuum out there, including the Rumba, which is about as intelligent as a cotton swab. But I have four cats and a golden retriever, so I was getting desperate! I believe the saying is… a picture is worth a thousand words. Check mine out (above)! Of note — the 'before' picture was taken of my dog's bed AFTER it went through the washer and dryer. Look at all of that left-behind hair!!! And the 'after' picture was taken after only THREE MINUTES spent vacuuming her bed. I. Am. SOLD! BTW, I've NEVER taken the time to review a product before, just FYI." —Luka Chan

    Get it on Amazon for $30.99.

    21. A plush Snuggle Puppy that'll stand up to even the roughest pup. It's a great companion for pups who are being crate-trained, plus it produces a heartbeat that anxious pooches may find soothing. It's so durable that it'll last your dog from puppyhood to adulthood — and that's saying a lot.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This puppy is amazing. We ordered it after our first two sleepless nights with our chocolate lab. He cried and whined and barked. He is now seven months and this thing is still his BFF. It has held up amazingly well. No holes and he chews and sucks on it daily. No other stuffed toy has lasted, but this one has. It’s dirty and well-loved and still has all stitching and stuffing intact." —L. Arm

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95 (available in three colors).

    22. Or an equally adorable and basically tear-resistant stuffed duck that squeaks and will last your precious pup many fun-filled years.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog Hazel LOVES this duck! She has had it for nine months now, and it’s still intact! It somehow made it through her teething as a puppy. She rips and tears apart all of her toys, but this one still looks decent!" —Emily A

    Get it from Amazon for $7.90 (also available in a pack of two).
