    36 Pet Products We’ve Included In A *Ton* Of Posts Because They Just Work

    They're our faves for a reason.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement so you can calm your dog's skin sensitivities ASAP and put an end to the licking and scratching. These soft chews deliver a dose of probiotics and other nutrients to help improve immune function, aid digestion, promote healthy skin, and add shine to a dog's coat.

    2. A broom for pet hair to loosen the fur trapped in your carpet. It works just as well on wood and linoleum, with the rubber head working as a magnet to attract stray hairs. There's also a built-in squeegee for wiping up liquids or for cleaning glass. Plus, the handle extends from 36 to 60 inches so it can reach practically any mess.

    3. A grooming rake that'll loosen fur, lighten your dog's undercoat, and prevent future mats. This brush is specifically designed for pooches with thick, dense fur or double coats.

    4. A hair-removing glove for curbing your dog's shedding as well as satisfying his endless desire for some rubbies. It's great if your dog or cat goes running at the sight of a brush.

    5. A pet hair remover if you love your fur baby but hate how much they shed...on everything. Roll it over your couch, bed, favorite blanket, you name it, and watch it lift the fur away. See, we can own nice things!!

    6. Or a devastatingly effective handheld vacuum because it'll make you ask, "What fur?" when you're done. 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.

    7. A Bissell Little Green Pet Pro so you're not spending hours on your hands and knees scrubbing cat vomit from the carpet.

    8. A mounted brush to satisfy your cat's ceaseless demands for scritches. Just mount it to a corner with the included adhesive strips and watch as your beloved babies leave you for the warm embrace of this gray and white piece of plastic.

    9. A bottle of Urine Gone, a stain- and odor-eliminating spray that'll penetrate carpet and break down dirt and grime. It's also safe for wood and tile, as well as on beds and couches.

    10. An odor-eliminating spray for lifting stains and odors fast. Each spray releases bacteria that feeds on the ammonia left behind after your pet's accidents, eliminating the urine completely and deterring your pet from peeing in the same spot again.

    11. A purring cat toy if your kitty is suffering from anxiety. This purple guy has a built-in purring mechanism so your feline can enjoy the sensation of curling up to another purring "cat." It also plays calming, comforting sounds.

    12. Or a plush Snuggle Puppy because your pupperino deserves their own furry companion. It's great for pups who are being crate-trained, plus it produces a heartbeat that anxious pooches may find soothing.

    13. A slow feeder bowl so you can stop your dog from inhaling their meal in a minute flat. These ridged bowls can help improve digestion, reduce bloating, and encourage your dog's foraging skills to keep their mind active.

    14. An interactive cat toy to quickly replace the bin full of other playthings you've bought your kitty over the years...and that they now won't even look at.

    15. An adorably ~a-peel-ing~ fruit tart pet bed that'll keep your fur baby cozy and provide tons of cute Instagram photo opps. I'll be ~berry~ sad if you don't get this!

    16. A liquid tartar remover for dogs who desperately need their teeth cleaned but who also won't let you near them with a toothbrush. (Think of it as doggy mouthwash!) Just add this to their water and you'll notice your dog's plaque and bad breath subside.

    17. A set of elevated cat bowls if you're looking for a hella functional yet stylish option for mealtime. Treat Mittens like the princess she is with these stainless-steel bowls that are angled to reduce neck strain. The design of these deep, wide bowls also helps prevent whisker fatigue (aka when the whiskers are overstimulated by being touched too much).

    18. An exciting activity mat, because a bored pup is bound to get into trouble. With this, you can keep your doggos entertained and challenged, especially if you hide treats and kibble in it.

    19. A cozy window hammock so your cat always has something interesting to look at. This is key to helping your pets stay active, because bored kitties often won't want to exercise.

    20. An automatic water fountain to encourage picky cats to stay hydrated. Some cats hate drinking still water (long story short, it's a defense mechanism), so a fountain with running water may be more enticing.

    21. A pair of dog leggings (!!!!!) from Shark Tank that'll keep Fido's legs — not just his paws — protected from all the spring showers (read: mud everywhere).

    22. A top entry litter box for keeping the litter where it belongs: in the dang box and NOT all over your floors and carpet. It has a grooved lid to catch any litter that's attached itself to your cat's paws, plus it comes with scoop!

    23. A pack of matatabi chew sticks if you're tired of your cat clawing at the couch legs and chewing through cables. These sticks — matatabi is a plant native to Japan and a catnip alternative (great for kitties who show no interest in catnip!) — will provide an outlet for their destructive energy that isn't something valuable, like your very expensive leather shoes. Plus, the stick format helps keep their teeth clean.

    24. A Wobble Wag Giggle ball with an internal noisemaker and six pockets because it'll engage your pet's natural curiosity and having them rolling, fetching, and shaking it until they're panting.

    25. A snout soother so your pup's snoot stays soft, moisturized, and oh-so boopable.

    26. A year-round paw protection cream 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.

    27. An anti-fungal antibacterial spray made with cooling aloe that'll treat a range of skin conditions, including allergies, cuts, hot spots, infections, rashes, and scrapes.

    28. An ear treatment for cleaning 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.

    29. A "Did you feed the dog?" sign if Fido is taking advantage of confusion re: whether he was fed to trick you into giving him another scoop of kibble.

    30. An alcohol-free doggie ~pawfume~ because you've definitely buried your face in your dog's soft fur and then instantly pulled back because they smell like hot garbage. This helps get rid of their funk while also conditioning their coat.

    31. A Ripple Rug — an activity mat made from recycled plastic water bottles so your kitties have an outlet for their energy and curiosity. You'll enjoy watching them hide, pounce, scratch, and dash in and out of holes — but what you'll love even more is that they're no longer destroying your couch legs.

    32. A pooper scooper to scoop the dang poop so you don't have to kneel down to pick it up.

    33. A portable shower attachment that'll come in handy when your pup inevitably gets dirty on one of your outdoor adventures. It attaches to standard plastic water bottle openings, is machine-washable, and comes with a lifetime warranty.

    34. A nail file board for pups who hate getting their nails trimmed. This is like an emery board for your dog and is so much more fun for the both of y'all than trying to clip their nails or shave them with a Dremel.

    35. An electric pet shaver if your pup is in desperate need of a trim. 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.

    36. A puzzle mat because it challenges your dog's mental agility and rewards them with tasty treats.
