    1. A grooming rake to make brushing your furry friend as easy as possible. Since the rake has rotating teeth, it will gently remove loose fur from their undercoat without causing any snags — and help prevent the fur from getting mat easily.,

    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." —pvfjr

    Price: $9.71 (available in two models)

    2. A Waterpik pet wand attachment because there is no reason to spend money on a groomer when you can do it yourself! The arched wand contours around your pet's body so that you don't have to keep moving the nozzle, spraying water everywhere in the process., Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a very nice wand. Our dog hates baths and is scared of spray heads, but this is so gentle that he hardly minds it at all. The wand can be adjusted to a narrow or wide flow, and within the narrow or wide range it can be can be adjusted to a very gentle flow, or a higher flow. The narrower spray pattern is great for feet or legs, the wider for rinsing off soap across dogs back. You can adjust everything right at your finger tips, including shutting it off. Its a little pricey, but works very well." —Professional Consumer #1

    Price: $36.97 (available in two sizes)

    3. A lick pad that'll keep your dog calm and happy while you groom or bathe them. Just spread peanut butter onto it to distract your pup. Pro tip: freeze the peanut butter on it so it lasts even longer!

    Promising review: "Definitely a must-buy item. I was able to shampoo/rinse him super well because he was so distracted by the peanut butter on this thing. It suctions super well, too. Cooper-approved!" —Kayla Jara

    Price: $10.58

    4. A pack of Burt's Bees cat wipes to keep your cats nice and fresh by reducing dander. Since it's made in an easy-to-use wipe, you can use them anywhere.

    Promising review: "This stuff changed the game for my elderly cat! He has some difficulty grooming these days, so I ordered these wipes figuring it couldn't hurt to try them, even if the glowing claims were exaggerated. But let me just say, these babies work like a charm. Dandruff — gone! Soft, kitteny fur in its place. I'm impressed. And my allergies have subsided significantly." —KKB

    Price: $5.83+ (available in four sizes)

    5. A pet grooming glove with 255 silicone grooming tips that lets loose hair stick to it so you can easily peel the hair off and throw it away—minimal cleanup required. Plus, your furry friend will love how it feels on their skin.,

    Promising review: "These gloves work wonders for my long-haired German Shepherd puppy. My puppy is 11 months old and sheds like crazy. The gloves are perfect because my puppy does not like being brushed by those rough brushes and tries to bite them. With the gloves she doesn't care as much." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $13.99 (available in two colors)

    6. A cat dander spray to condition your cat's dry skin while reducing flakiness. Infused with oat flour and aloe vera, the natural ingredients won't irritate your cat's skin.

    Promising review: "We have an overweight cat who 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+ (available in two sizes)

    7. A toothpaste that'll reduce tartar and plaque formation — AKA say goodbye to gross doggy breath. After using this for just a few weeks, you'll see a noticeable difference on how much cleaner (and shinier) their teeth are.

    Promising review: "Holy cow!!! This stuff works! About a year ago I was concerned how much plaque and blackness was building up on my beagles teeth. Even though I brushed her teeth once a week it was still getting bad. I asked the vet what to do about it and she said that if it keeps progressing I would have to get a dental done and they would have to sedate her. I was afraid to do that so I did some research and found this. I read the great reviews and gave it a shot... I've been using it once a week for a year and when I tell you that I can literally pick chunks of hardened plaque off of her teeth I am not lying! It was like all of a sudden it kicked in and worked like a miracle. I just got my nail under the plaque on her back tooth that was the worst and pulled and the whole piece of plaque came off exposing a clean and beautifully healthy tooth underneath! I am SO happy! Like I said it took some time but with regular brushing it works perfectly!" —Bethany

    8. A snout soother stick to make a cracked, irritated snout feel better. It's made out of organic and all-natural ingredients, so it'll be gentle on their sensitive nose as it slowly heals.

    Promising review: "This stuff worked wonders on my Frenchie's crusty nose, and it was pretty crusty. Within two days, the crusties were gone. A little bit goes a long way, you don't need to gloop it on there, so I think this is a really good size for him since he has a pretty small nose. I could see a bigger dog with a 'normal' sized nose needing a larger size. Once applied, it sort of melts into the skin and gets to work. When cleaning out the folds on his face, I did also gently wipe down his nose with a damp baby washcloth to remove the bits that were sloughing off. He doesn't seem to mind the application at all; I'm sure he is making the connection that his nose is now soft and healthy, not chapped/cracked. Very impressed! This is going into my regular care routine for the pupper." —Purplefairyfarts

    9. A pet ear cleaner that'll gently get rid of dirt, debris, and built-up wax so your dog can *finally* stop pawing at their ears 24/7.

    Promising review: "My pup and I have had nothing but problems with her ears since I purchased her over three years ago. I have spent lots of money on vet bills and antibiotics. I feel like I had tried everything until my brother-in-law told me one of his friends recommended this product to him. I can't say enough good things about our experience. I used it daily until brown particles stopped appearing in her outer ear after use, now I clean her ears twice a week. This product smells great but most importantly WORKS. I will never use anything else." —Amazon Customer

    10. A tear stain remover to brighten your dog's coat by vanishing those dark marks around their eyes. It will be especially helpful for dogs with lighter coats.

    Promising review: "I have been using this product for a year now. A little goes along way. I use a wet rag with a little drop of this and clean her eyes every once in a while. It has a light scent which is nice. My dog is a Maltese-Shih Tzu mix and this gets the red around her eyes out. It works so well!" –Deanna Franklin

    11. A jar of wrinkle balm that'll prevent infection and irritation in your bulldog's wrinkles. Saving you $$$ on going to the groomer as frequently.

    Promising review: "We were at the point where I was about to go back to the vet and get antibiotics for our dog as nothing was working and her lip folds were smelling really bad. I didn't want to do this as she has had several doses of antibiotics so this wrinkle balm was my last try before heading back to the vet. I am delighted to say that it absolutely worked. I wash her face with soap in the morning, give it a good dry and then apply the balm. Our dog is very happy to have the balm put on and even wags her tail (in contrast she hates the mousse that the vet prescribed). I clean her lip folds with witch hazel at night, dry with tissue and then apply more of the balm. After a day or so the smell improved and after two weeks her once inflamed and swollen lip folds are looking 100% better and there is no smell at all." —Carrie

    12. A deshedding tool to remove the undercoat on long-haired cats without hurting their skin or damaging their topcoat. When you've filled up the brush with lots of dead hair, press the eject button to release all of the hair.

    Promising review: "Our cat is pain in the butt when it comes to brushing him. Well not a pain it is more a pain to brush his fur and get the under coat. I've tried a bunch of different products that claimed to do what this brush did. Maybe a little bit of fur, but nothing like this after 20 minutes of brushing. No pulling and he loves it. Easy to clean the hair off with the push button on the back. I like the safety cover to keep it nice and clean. I have already recommended to a dozen friends." —Rachel

    Price: $19.66+ (available in two sizes and four styles)

    13. A bottle of medicated dog shampoo designed to treat fungal and bacterial infections. We only want our doggies to be the cleanest!

    Promising review: "I've been using the spray for a couple of days and today we tried the shampoo. I am so relieved that our German Shepherd is napping peacefully with my husband instead of scratching like crazy. We tried so many products we were ready to give up. The vet prescribed allergy medications that didn't help. The supplements made her sick. I'm so happy this is working for her terrible winter itch." —Lidson

    Price: $8.96

    14. A mesh shower bag that'll make sure your kitty stays in place as you give them a bath.

    Promising review: "Perfect for angry cats. My Milo hates baths and there was always a blood bath when trying to get him in the tub. Somehow he went completely limp once in the bag. However, once he felt the water he tried to fight me but he couldn’t get me so mission accomplished. Clean cat." —Melanie V. Millr

    Price: $12.60

    15. A self-groomer cat toy for the kitty who absolutely adores cheek scratches. This product sticks to any corner in your home so they can self groom in a snap.

    Promising review: "My cat likes nothing. He doesn't go into paper bags, ignores boxes, isn't curious about the birds. Mostly he eats and sleeps and allows us to pet him. But he LOVES this! I took someone's tip to stick it on the corner of a cabinet with looped duct tape. Seems to be holding fine, even though Igor rubs himself senseless on this thing. Also the catnip that came with it must be killer stuff. He really goes for it. So Igor gives it a big 5 stars!" —AmazonCustomer
    Price: $4.99

    16. Advantage's small cat flea treatment to provide relief to your precious cat. It attacks fleas at all stages of life so they can continue living critter-free and happy.

    a green and white box of flea treatments with 4 monthly doses suitable for cats 5-9 lbs

    Promising review: "This medicine saved our kittens from being absolutely riddled with fleas when they were too young to use any other flea killing product!! Between Dawn baths, and a couple treatments each of this stuff, after about two months we were 100% flea free. As usual, don't expect the fleas to die right away after putting the product on. This stuff works, it just needs time to kill of the fleas/eggs etc. I will never buy any other flea prevention medicine from any other brand or line because of how efficient this was for getting rid of hundreds and hundreds of fleas on BOTH kittens! My only complaint is that I wish this was a little more friendly on my wallet, but it does what I need it to do, so I'm willing to pay the price for the security of knowing that this will, 100%, work." —Rebecca

    17. And a portable paw washer that'll ensure your pet's paws stay squeaky clean at all times. There's no reason to A) have mud tracking through your house B) have your pup smell like the rain and C) have to continuously clean your pups paws.

    Promising review: "I am a clean freak who also has a 90-lb 1.5 year old golden retriever who enjoys digging multiple holes in my yard, especially when the ground is wet. This thing is the best 23 bucks I’ve ever spent, because it helps me keep my sanity. I call my dog to the door and see his paws are black, tell him to stay, squirt a pump of soap and fill this thing with hot water, grab a towel, and go to town. I stick his paws in, dry them off with a towel, and boom! No muddy paw prints through my house. Finn doesn’t mind having his feet cleaned, Mom doesn’t go crazy, and Dad is happy that Mom isn’t pissed. Everybody wins." —Marie16

    Price: $13.83 (available in sizes S-L and six colors)
