    We asked pet owners in the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about all the best problem-solving pet products, and here are their recommendations!

    1. A durable chew toy that'll withstand even the most vigorous chewer.

    2. Or a virtually indestructible Kong toy so your pup can finally get their chewing fix. RIP that squeaky toy that lasted all of five seconds.

    3. A bottle of Urine Gone, a stain- and odor-eliminating spray for penetrating carpet and breaking down dirt and grime. It's also safe for wood and tile, as well as on beds and couches.

    4. A devastatingly effective handheld vacuum to suck up 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.

    5. A hair-removing stone that'll catch loose fur from your pets' coats before it ends up all over your furniture. It's also gentle enough to use on furniture and clothes.

    6. Or a pumice stone so you can easily sweep away stubborn pet hairs on your couch and carpets.

    7. 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!!

    8. A Bissell SpotBot, because who wants to spend hours on their hands and knees scrubbing cat vomit from the carpet? The answer: no one.

    9. A powerful pet-safe Clorox cleaning spray to help you say goodbye lingering stains and odors, like urine, feces, drool, and vomit.

    10. A fast-acting stain- and odor-removing spray that'll treat everyday pet messes on carpet, tile, hardwood, and linoleum.

    11. A scratching post (or lounge for enthusiastic scratchers!) if the cat is dead set on shredding everything they can get their paws on.

    12. A nourishing salmon oil that contains omega-3 fatty acids for helping keep your pets' coats shiny and healthy and potentially easing irritating skin conditions. Check with your vet before starting your cat or dog on any new supplements.

    13. A bottle of Gold Bond powder to help soothe your pup's itchiness and treat hotspots. Again, you should get the OK from your vet before using Gold Bond on your pets.

    14. A skin-healing supplement you sprinkle in your pet's food if their coat could use some help. Reviewers say it's a fabulous treatment option for regrowing fur and can help keep hair sleek, shiny, and moisturized.

    15. A combination of salmon oil and probiotics for helping your pets feel good on the inside and look great on the outside. The salmon oil maintains their glossy coats while the probiotics are designed to keep their digestive system in tip-top shape.

    16. 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.

    17. 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.

    18. An informational book if you're interested in feeding your pup a raw diet but aren't sure where to start.

    19. An automatic pet feeder that'll help you regain your freedom from your furry overlords. No more being woken up at 6 a.m. by a hungry pet or having to cut your night out short because no one will be home to feed Fido.

    20. A self-cleaning brush for delicately loosening knots and removing matted fur without earning you a sharp swipe from your cat's paw.

    21. A no-pull dog collar to gently curb any unwanted behaviors, like jumping, lunging, and pulling. The nose loop is padded so it won't scratch your doggo's nose, and the collar puts pressure on the back of the head instead of the throat to prevent your pupperino from choking and coughing.

    22. And on that note, a car-safe harness that's been crash tested so your precious fur babies will be protected in case you get in an accident. It's designed to reduce and redistribute the force of a car collision and may even save your pet's life.

    23. A mini comb that'll gently detangle the fur around their eyes that's been crusted with eye boogers. This stainless steel brush delicately picks out the goop so you don't have to touch it yourself.

    24. A warm coat because the cold weather doesn't have to stop your dog from joining you outside. Seriously, this bad boy is easy to put on (simply slip it over your dog's head and buckle it) and is made to keep your dog warm in temps as cold as -22 degrees Fahrenheit.

    25. A no-chew spray if your furniture and shoes are under constant attack from an aggressive biter. It's also safe so to spray directly on your pet's hotspots to help them avoid licking.

    You did it! You solved your problem! You did the thing! Congrats!
