    43 Problem-Solving Products From Amazon That Pet Owners Actually Swear By

    Problems: solved. Pets: happy.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed collects a share of sales and/or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement because your doggo deserves relief from their allergies and skin sensitivities. These soft chews deliver a dose of probiotics and other nutrients to help 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

    Price: $25.96 (or Subscribe & Save for $24.66/month)

    2. A pet carrier if your cat has decided that their carrier is Public Enemy No. 1. This bag is designed to keep your cat calm — it's roomy and has a heads-out design — so you can travel with and groom them without issue.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a 20-pound, 13-year-old diabetic cat who haaaaaaates going to the vet, so in an attempt to make her as comfy as possible, I purchased this carrier. The day it arrived I unzipped it and set it on the floor and found her sleeping in it hours later LOL. My vet even commented on how nice it was. She has to go in every so often for them to test her glucose levels and they don't even have to take her out of the carrier; they just unzip the top portion and can draw blood easier that way since she can't really escape (or bite them like she did the first visit without this carrier). He told me he wished more cat owners had a carrier like this since it made their job much easier that day." —SaraPo

    Price: $18.39+ (available in two sizes and two colors)

    3. A bag of hairball control cat treats for kitties who are prone to leaving you furry surprises. Ensuring your cat gets frequent brushings and has plenty of fresh water should also help reduce the frequency of their hairy hack-ups.

    The treats, which have a crunchy outside and soft inside
    Amazon

    Promising review: "When Teddy Too comes home after hunting moles, he gets rewarded with these hairball treats. He loves the taste and I love the fact that it controls hairballs and helps with his slow digestion. Manx cats are prone to constipation and I find that if I give him 10 treats a day, he doesn't have as much trouble with constipation." —Janet M

    Price: $21 for a 12-pack (or Subscribe & Save for $19.95/month)

    4. A mounted brush that'll 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cat Gambino Bambino would let you brush him bald!!! He loves to be groomed and comes running whenever the brush comes out. Though we love to accommodate, I know he wanted more. He was constantly rubbing his cheeks and ears on the corner of our walls to get even more scratching. I finally came across this product and knew he would love it! It took a little convincing but once he got a hang of it he’s been loving it! We have one in the living room, one in the kitchen, one at the top of the stairs and one in the guest room! He is having a great time!!! Very easy to put together and place on the wall." —T. Mangiaracina

    Price: $4.49

    5. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this broom based on the tons of great reviews and I am not disappointed. I love this broom! It is lightweight but sturdy. I have used it on tile floors and carpet and it does a great job of getting the pet hair, lint, and dirt. I like this so much better than our traditional push broom. It is very easy to clean after use just using my hand, unlike our old broom. It also has a telescoping handle so that you can adjust it to whatever height you need. There is also a squeegee for doing the house windows and the car windows. I highly recommend it." —Joyce V

    Price: $15.10

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

    amazon.com

    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 like with the blade style Furminator. This thing really digs the loose stuff out so much faster and easier. Check the photo to see what 20 minutes will get you." —pvfjr

    Price: $11.89

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

    amazon.com

    This portable carpet cleaner will spray, brush, and suction up any stain, no adult supervision needed. It also comes with a hose and tool attachment if you'd prefer a more hands-on cleaning session.

    Promising review: "This machine is amazing. I was shocked. My dogs had a severe diarrhea blowout from getting into some people food and garbage. My carpet looked beyond repair. We used the cleaning solution that came with it and also used Nature's Miracle carpet shampoo liquid. I am sold on the SpotBot. It is fabulous and gets out any set-in stain. Not a trace left and we didn't have to do a thing but move the machine to a different spot when it was done. No work for us!" —MK

    Price: $179.99

    8. 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!!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my 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

    Price: $24.95

    9. A devastatingly effective handheld vacuum for sucking 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.

    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

    Price: $34.92

    10. A pack of stain-removing pads that'll make you feel like you're taking the lazy way out of dealing with pet messes. Just place it on a stain — pee, poop, vomit, and even wine spills — and stomp. Then watch the spot disappear!

    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

    Price: $24.99 for a 20-pack (or Subscribe & Save for $23.74/month)

    11. 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a whole room filled with cat toys that my cat is not interested in. It's funny how the least expensive cat toy I have makes him go crazy. He plays with this until he's panting like a dog and I have never seen him jump so high. I'm certain this toy will help him lose his belly. He loves it! I highly recommend it!" —Kwoo

    Price: $2.09

    12. An adorable and basically tear-resistant stuffed duck so you can stop spending money on toys that your furry destroyer shreds in approximately 10 seconds. This lil' yellow duck doesn't look like it, but it's built to last.

    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

    Price: $8.99

    13. A stimulating 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.

    Reviewer photo of their dogs using the activity mat
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My puppy LOVES this mat! He gets super excited whenever he sees it. He sometimes doesn't like to eat his kibbles in his bowl, but he has so much fun finding and eating kibbles when I hide them into this mat. I heard nose work is also good for reducing separation anxiety in dogs, so I give him this mat whenever I need to leave more than two hours. He deals with separation way better with this. I'm 100% satisfied!" —Bom

    Price: $29.99+ (available in two sizes)

    14. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works like a charm! I recently found myself a cat mama of an abandoned week-old kitten. I bought this knowing she needed just something to cuddle up to in her bed. Turns out it basically hypnotizes her to sleep. She crawls to it, kneads it and eventually her meows turn to silence. I wish the purring lasted longer but for $10 it is a lifesaver. She's pooped on it a couple of times so I've had to throw it in the washer and dryer minus the battery pack. It's held up great." —S Leytem

    Price: $11.99

    15. A durable chew toy for withstanding a play session with even the most vigorous chewer.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My 1-year-old Pyredane loves this big ball. She carries it around and loves to chew the rope and the ball. Her greatest delight is in gnashing and destroying toys, and my delight is if they last more than a week (ballistic material toys don't stand a chance with her). The Jolly Pet Romp-n-Roll makes us both happy. We play chase games with it but she also enjoys playing with it by herself. There are teeth marks all over the ball and the rope is a little frayed, but both are holding up fabulously. The ball was a little stiff new from the package, but after sitting in the yard for about a week, the ball softened enough that she can squeeze it. When she finally destroys it, I'll definitely buy another." —L. Colburn

    Price: $10.17+ (available in three sizes and six colors)

    16. 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This worked great for taking the urine odor out of my hardwood floors and also my carpets. This was used on both dog and cat urine and the smell is gone after just one treatment. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is trying to get rid of pet urine odors. The smell of the product is also not bad." —SVaith

    Price: $9.88

    17. An automatic water fountain to encourage your 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.

    Reviewer photo of the fountain, which has a flower-shaped spout
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Cats aren't prone to drinking enough water, and they also abhor getting their whiskers wet. This fountain, recommended by a friend, was a huge hit from the moment I set it up and solved both of those problems. My kitty now guzzles water any time she wishes, which is definitely more than before (and yay, I don't have to turn the sink on for her now, which was the only way she'd drink water). This is fantastic!" —Pgilly

    Price: $27.99+ (also available in green)

    18. An odor-eliminating spray so you can lift 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.

    The spray
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have six elderly cats, and a few of them oftentimes leave smelly pee puddles to register their disdain at whatever cats get 'peed off' about. It's not a litter box problem and, although I've caught one or two of them doing it, I can't blame them all. This product works great on fresh messes as well as dried ones. After blotting up fresh pee pods, I saturate the area with Rocco & Roxie's odor remover and let dry. For dried stinky stuff, I just saturate the area and let it dry. It has a pleasant odor and completely eliminates the ammonia odor. Believe me, I've tried all kinds of products, and this one works the best. I buy gallons now just to have on hand. It's better than smelling that awful pee!" —mona mia

    Price: $19.97

    19. A waterless cat bath because as much as we love Princess Fluffy, we hate when she stinks of poop and disdain for the human species. This leave-in foam can moisturize her skin and leave it squeaky clean.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cat, despite getting bathed frequently, still manages to smell like a combination of mouth, belly button lint, and floor. I bathed her with this tonight and she smells like a spring baby. I can't stop huffing her soft head. I didn't think it was possible to love her any more, but I'm a changed man. This stuff rocks." —J. Ham

    Price: $7.79 (or Subscribe & Save for $7.40/month)

    20. A bottle of Burt's Bees dander-reducing spray if you want your cat's coat soft, shiny, and free of dander and flakes. It's made with aloe vera and oatmeal to condition dry skin and reduce redness.

    Reviewer's before and after showing the spray dramatically reduced their cat's dander
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We have an overweight cat that has trouble grooming her back. She was so full of dandruff and greasy fur that I hated petting her. We took her to the vet, and he thought it was allergies. We tried prednisone for a while, and it was clear she was less itchy, but the dandruff remained. The vet suggested different food, so we switched to a different flavor (different ingredients) in the same line, and there was no change. Our poor girl looked miserable. We decided to try a bath, but she's 13 years old so we knew she wouldn't enjoy it. While looking for a shampoo for her, I came across this product and decided to try it before torturing her with a bath. After the first application there was a huge difference! After the second application, her dandruff is GONE. We spray her down and then brush her. She is so soft and shiny! She finally looks healthy, and feels good to pet." —Amber Steele

    Price: $6.49 (or Subscribe & Save for $6.17/month)

    21. A pack of Burt's Bees cat wipes for reducing dander and keeping your cats fresh. They're pretty similar to the spray, so it's up to you which format you prefer using with your kitties.

    The wipes
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Our son was having a lot of dander on his back near the base of his tail. We kept up the brushing but it wasn't going away. Looking at the reviews I decided to go for the dander wipes. Well I have used it twice and was blown away. His dander is pretty much all gone now. Plus his hair seems shinier and silkier after his brushing and using the wipes. Not to mention our baby boy looks just like the cat on the packaging. All around I will continue to buy these and use once a week or twice every two weeks to keep up his beautiful orange coat. Thanks Burt's Bees!" —Tom Cincotta

    Price: $6.49 (or Subscribe & Save for $6.17/month)

    22. 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.

    amazon.com, 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

    Price: $15.95

    23. 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.

    Reviewer's before and after showing the treatment cleared all the brown crustiness from their dog's ears
    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

    Price: $21.99

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

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Well, I have never before been so shocked at the effectiveness of a product. Our 5-year-old Frenchie, Carol, had a nose that was so crusty it was sprouting these long strands of more crust. There was literally crust on crust on crust. The nose had strings of crust. This nose was so crusty and repulsive it was almost beautiful. Her nose might have resembled the rarest, most exotic geode to be mined from the rarest mine in Guatemala. A friend recommended Snout Soother for Carol's repulsive nose. I was worried she would just lick it all off and it wouldn't work. We never imagined she could have a regular, soft, moist nose again. Honestly this product is some black magic stuff! Unbelievable results in three to five days. No one paid me to write this." —Brittany

    Price: $7.95 (or Subscribe & Save for $7.55/month)

    25. A set of mini combs because they'll gently detangle the fur around your pet's 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cockapoo had tear staining as a pup but as an adult he just gets that goop in the corner of his inner eyes. Sometimes I don’t catch the goop fast enough and it hardens in his muzzle. Even when I do, the goop is slimy and difficult to remove even with dog wipes. This tool is a miracle! Small, light weight and a good value for the price. Just one comb through and I got the sticky wet goop. A few more comb throughs and I found eye gunk that was buried in his muzzle. Most importantly, this comb removed the debris without causing any discomfort to my pooch. In fact, he seemed to enjoy it! Just look at the pictures." —Joanna

    Price: $5.95

    26. An eye rinse if you need help getting 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 stye, so back to every day." —CG

    Price: $5.59 (or Subscribe & Save for $5.31/month)

    27. 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog's molars were turning black and he had a ton of build up on his canines. In the photo (above), just imagine everywhere you see slight yellow, instead covered in black and brown gunk and hard plaque. His gums were beginning to look inflamed. And, of course, his breath could kill a horse. After one week of constant use (a cap full for every bowl of water) you could see an obvious difference in tooth color. I was blown away. (Why can’t human mouthwash do such a good job on our teeth?) After three weeks, his molars were almost completely clean. After a couple months of use, the plaque on his canines was soft enough to brush some of it off, which was totally impossible before. Plaque covered the canine approximately 70%. Obviously that's no longer the case. Idk what insane solvent this is made of, but it keeps his gross mouth clean as a whistle. Now I don’t have to worry about my picky princess mutt losing his teeth because he can’t be bothered to chew anything." —BaconPancakes

    Price: $5.84+ (available in two flavors and two sizes)

    28. An antibacterial, safe-to-swallow toothpaste that'll help prevent plaque buildup that can make your dog's breath extra funky.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We were excellent dog parents. Then we had a baby and became good dog parents. One of the things we let slide was daily toothbrushing. At best it became once a week, but honestly it was more like once a month. Then I took a good look in my cocker spaniel mix’s mouth and was alarmed. Fully convinced we needed to have a full dental cleaning, I set out to do what I could in the mean time. I purchased this toothpaste and an Oral B electric toothbrush. The before and after pictures (first photo) were taken EIGHT DAYS apart. Eight days of twice daily brushing and a year of partial tooth care neglect is basically reversed. Buy it. Use it. Your dog (and vet) will thank you!" —Nick J.

    Price: $9.33+ (or Subscribe & Save for $8.86/month; available in three flavors)

    29. A bag of dental chews with nubs to help loosen plaque and food bits *and* keep your pupperonis breath fresh.

    The dental chew, which looks like a toothbrush
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have tired many doggy dental treats and Smoochies have been the best for my dog. My pit bull mix had horrible doggy breath and I was getting to the point that I was thinking about calling my vet to see if he needed prescription dental treats but luckily I tried these and his breath doesn’t smell bad anymore." —Ms. Gina P. Martinez

    Price: $23.49 for a bag of 37 chews (or Subscribe & Save for $22.32/month)

    30. A bag of pill pockets so you can disguise icky medication that your dog immediately sniffs out and avoids when you try to hide it in their food.

    Reviewer photo of the pill pouch
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "One of the only ways I can get my rottie to take her pills. She gives me a hassle sometimes, because she might see me putting pills in them, and she decides she doesn't want her pills. But! Later, I offer to her and she thinks it's a treat! These have overall been a lifesaver. Jasmine has an auto-immune disorder and must have pills several times a day. The Pill Pockets are great. I have them on auto-refill, which comes in handy." —Michelle Ochs

    Price: $7.98+ for 30 pockets (or Subscribe & Save for $7.58/month; available in three sizes and other flavors).

    31. A set of folding stairs because your fur baby just wants to join you on the couch for cuddles. It's great for senior pups and short-legged dogs who have trouble jumping or can't reach higher surfaces like a couch or bed. And despite it weighing only five pounds, it's sturdy enough to be able to support up to 150 pounds.

    The stairs
    Amazon

    Promising review: "My dog loves them! She learned how to use them very quickly! I have a very high bed and these were a perfect fit. Super easy to assemble. No more fears of my dog leaping from my bed and hurting herself, and no more crying at night from her wanting to get up on the bed." —Meagan Gagnier

    Price: $39.95+ (available in two sizes and two colors)

    32. A doggie doorbell if you're tired of cleaning up after your pooch even though they're most definitely potty-trained. Teach your dog to ring a doorbell when he has to go potty, and you will have never run around the house asking, "Who did this?" as your dog tries to avoid making eye contact.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Our 5-month-old pug knows he's not supposed to do his business inside the house. However, we've had a hard time getting him to communicate to us that he needs to go outside to do his business. With this little doorbell at nose level for him, he picked it up within a day and hasn't had an accident inside the house since. After we installed it, which was easy in itself, we leashed him up, drew his attention to the button, pressed it, and took him out. Only took maybe two times before he started running over to the doorbell to hit it himself and then look at us, expectantly. The nice thing about this is that the button isn't very fun to play with by itself, so you don't get any false positives. He's learned that, if he hits that button, he needs to do something before he can come back inside. That has cut down on his abuse of the button, exponentially." —Jason L. Pyrz

    Price: $30

    33. A crate for creating a relaxing retreat for your pet. This is their safe space when they get anxious or stressed on the rare occasion that you have to leave.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Simple to set up! We haven't taken it down since the first use months ago. Sturdy and well-designed. The door is easy to use and the door opening maintains its shape when the door is open. The dog loves it, but that is partly working with her on that. Our intention was to use this for multiple foster dogs and not on a daily basis but COVID hit and we became foster failures! Great product for the price!" —John

    Price: $28.99+ (available in six sizes and two styles)

    34. A rechargeable LED dog collar that'll grant you peace of mind if you have a large backyard and your pupper likes to go outside one more time before bed. No more losing your black dog!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Now that the evenings are getting darker..and so are the mornings, this collar is exactly what we needed for our two puppies. We got one in green and the other in blue and both are BRIGHT. It gives us peace of mind because no matter what they are up to, we can see them. I will also add in that it has added a wonderful entertainment value to our evenings because it is like attending a rave in our backyard. We get to watch two glow sticks run and wrestle; it has been pretty fun. Beyond that, it gives us peace of mind that they will be seen by others so there is a built in safety measure. We also got the leashes but haven't used them yet. I am sure after daylight saving time ends, we will need them for walks. I highly recommend these collars (and leashes!)." —TReader

    Price: $17.99 (available in sizes XXS–XL and six colors)

    35. A self-warming pet bed to keep your pet nice and toasty. (Reviewers with hairless cats say its great for keeping their naked bbs cozy and warm.)

    Promising review: "I had to order a second bed because my two cats are fighting over the first one I bought. But honestly, it's been kinda funny watching the battles. Trust me, your cat(s) will love this bed." —Leslie D. Van Damme

    Price: $17.68+ (available in five sizes and two colors).

    36. A Chuckit! ball launcher so you can tire out your energetic pup with minimum effort on your part. You'll both have a ball — literally and figuratively!

    Promising review: "We're in quarantine so my husband and I cannot go to the park to use this yet. BUT we have about an acre-size grassland in our condominium so I tried it out. Glad to say it works great!! It even comes with a ball." —L.A. home

    Price: $9.92

    37. A hooded kitty litter box because it's like the Lamborghini of litter boxes. It's big enough to fit a human (or a few cats) and has a built-in carbon filter for odors, a front door to prevent your kitty from tracking litter outside the box, an overlap mechanism to prevent leaking, and more!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This litter box is by far the best one I've ever had. It has impeccable quality, it makes upkeep easy, and is great for my cats. I have two medium-sized male cats who love to make messes when it comes to cat litter. I got this box because it had a cover, and was large enough for them to be comfortable with using it. Neither of the cats had ever used a covered box before, so for the first three days I took the clear plastic door off, so they could get used to the box itself. Once I put the door back on, the were puzzled for a while, but when they needed to do their business they used the door just fine. Long story short, this litter box is incredible, and was worth every penny." —Payton B

    Price: $39.62+ (available in two colors)

    38. A scented clumping litter if you're tired of inhaling an ammonia-scented dust cloud after every single scoop. No more trying to hold your breath the whole time; this dust-free litter clumps together tightly so it won't crumble mid-scoop and has 10-day odor control.

    Promising review: "I have not found a better quality litter than this. I frequently travel on the weekends so my kitty, Darwin, stays at home. My house never smells of urine or feces when I come home. If you forget to clean the box after a few days, don't sweat it. The litter covers the scent wonderfully and it clumps quite well too. Darwin and I are so glad for Fresh Step." —Carly Moore

    Price: $9.54 for a 14-pound box

    39. A pack of poop bags for holding, as the name implies, poop (or pee if you're emptying your cat's litter box)! Reviewers say they're also great for lining diaper pails.

    Promising review: "My dog poops probably four times daily when we go on walks. It's as stinky as it gets. All the bags I've used before still let some of the scent permeate through the bag, but not these. They're very durable, which is greater for larger pets and larger doo-doos. These are a bit transparent, but that doesn't bother me because obviously dogs poop and someone needs to pick it up (unless you're one of THOSE people). But if you don't like transparency in your bags, just a heads up. The main part I love is the SCENT! It smells like Arm & Hammer and I don't smell any of the poop from inside the bag, which is miraculous. I will buy these and only these over and over again." —Daria

    Price: $7.29 for 90 bags (available in three colors and in a 180-pack)

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

    Amazon

    Promising review: "With three dogs, two small and one large, scooping the yard is a never-ending job. But with the Arm & Hammer swivel bin and rake, there is no more bending to pick up the doggy droppings. I am able to easily use the rake to push the droppings into the bag covered bin. When I am done cleaning up the yard, I just simply remove the plastic bag from the scoop, tie it off, and dispose. I do spray the rake off with the hose sprayer and then clip the rake onto the scooper for easy storage. I really like this handy scooper. It makes a very icky job much easier to handle." —Kelly Eldred

    Price: $17.95

    41. A food storage container to keep your pets' kibble fresh and out of their greedy paws. The snap lock latches will prevent moisture and pests from seeping in.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Not only are these containers airtight, but they are also dog proof! I left my three boxers inside the house with two sets of these containers and came home to find them in various places in the house with numerous scratches and bite marks but still closed and the contents safe! Attempts at self-feeding were foiled! Great product!" —Diana Nicholson

    Price: $23.99 (available in 10 colors)

    42. 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.

    Promising review: "We adopted a sweet three-legged 50-pound Dutch shepherd from the Humane Society recently. Her former two homes were bad, and she had to fight for her food. Because of this, she has crazy food aggression and inhales her food in a regular bowl. A friend recommended this bowl to us and it is FAB-U-LOUS! We mix up some homemade dog food (wet) along with grain free kibble and spread it around the bowl. Our girl takes FAR longer to eat now. I'm guessing around five to seven minutes? The bowl works best on a smooth, noncarpeted surface as it has grip on the bottom. This ensures that the bowl doesn't slide around. It is also heavy duty, durable plastic that can go in the dishwasher (if I hand clean it, I soak in soapy water and scour with kitchen scrubber). Great product! I highly recommend this bowl for your fur baby too." —Shan the Painter

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in four sizes and six colors).

    43. An automatic pet feeder because it's time to regain your freedom from your furry overlords. No more being woken up at 6 a.m. by a hungry pet or having your Zoom meetings interrupted by yowling in the background because dinner is one minute late.

    amazon.com

    This automatic feeder can hold up to 12 meals depending on the size of each portion (you can choose from 1/8 cup to 4 cups).

    "My PetSafe automatic feeder allows me to sleep in peace without my cat nagging me, travel for up to four days, and controls the food amount." —caroline5

    "Our cat is fat. Her life is pretty much driven by food and the only way we've been able to keep her at a moderately sustainable weight is by giving her healthy food she hates and this pet feeder. Every time we come back from a trip, there are a few more claw and bite marks on it, but it holds strong. She's even tried to sit on it, but it's done nothing more than presumably horrify it a little. She used to move around the bowl so when feeding time came she could put her head where the chute is and feel the food rain down her head like Augustus Gloop in the chocolate factory. I would recommend this for anyone who has a cat who is consumed with eating and getting food. Her persistence has defeated every other one we have tried. Yes it is expensive. Yes it is absolutely worth it." —BMoney

    Get it from Amazon for $99.95.
