    1. An extra strong dog poop bag reviewers love because it's made of recycled materials, it's as big as they come, pretty much rip-proof, and guaranteed to seal in nasty odors.

    A dog poop bag with poop in it

    I'm especially jazzed they've got an unscented version — perfect if you're sensitive to fragrances or have MCS like I do!

    5-star reviews: 94,593

    Promising review: "Is it possible to love a dog poop bag? Heck yeah! I'm a veterinarian and I have tried many brands of bags over the years but since I discovered the Earth Rated Dog Waste Bags I use no other. I use the scented bags because on long walks it kind of disguises the smell of the feces (except those that are really potent), so you don't smell like feces to any passerby. I usually prefer unscented things because I have a sensitive nose and for those inclined, Earth Rated does offer nonscented bags. The Earth Rated bags are also a bit longer than a few other brands though most are similar length. However, the bags are definitely heavier than many other brands and also have way better-sealed seams as well as high-quality separation perforations. The central cylinder glides easily in every brand of bag holder I have. Lastly, a small but important detail... you know that small piece of tape that holds a new roll together? Most brands use a tape that when you pull it off it puts a hole in the opposing part of the bag if you don't very carefully remove it. A hole at the top of a bag is no big deal but further down can lead to leakage. The Earth Rated tape comes off real nice and my first bag isn't destroyed. Overall a very strong, well-made bag that has never let me down. It can hold any load big or small, firm or loose and will not leak or tear." —Jaxdoc

    Price: $6.39+ (available in two sizes, and in lavender scent or unscented)

    2. A floor cleaner and deodorizer that uses orange oil to eliminate stains and smells — reviewers love it because it actually works.

    If it's endorsed by Snoop Dogg, it must be good. (Seriously! Snoop got an endorsement deal with these folks and makes ads with his Frenchie in them.)

    5-star reviews: 22,929

    Promising review: "LOVE this stuff! Great smell and stains come right out! New puppy went frequently in one room. That room stink even after using almost a whole bottle of a different cleaner! One time spray with this and all the smell was gone! In the pics, the before is of a puppy accident after cleanup with paper towels, and the after picture shows how it looked after using Angry Orange." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $20.97+ (available in two sizes)

    3. A hair roller appreciated in particular by pet parents with high-shedding fur babies who don't like the sound of the vacuum.

    5-star reviews: 47,438

    Promising review: "We live in a household that contains two humans, two dogs, and two cats. And unfortunately it's furnished with a black couch. Our dogs hate the vacuum so much so they viscously bite at the cleaner head before we even power it on. It makes the task of cleaning our couch extremely unpleasant and nearly impossible. Thanks to Chom Chom, a simple, quick, SOUNDLESS sweep is all we need to keep our couch pet hair-free. We were so impressed, we gifted these as presents for all of our pet-loving friends." —AnonM

    Price: $24.95

    4. A horse liniment cream that reduces joint pain and swelling in both humans and pets.

    A bottle of the gel with a Sharpie pen for scale

    5-star reviews: 5,557

    Promising review: "Oh my! My doctor recommended I use this for arthritis and other muscle pain. At first I thought, this is nonsense! How could a horse liniment be applied to a human? This is the best liniment I have ever used. It reduces pain and swelling and can be reused without concern. Everyone I’ve given this too has turned around and reordered it immediately." —Retired And Happy

    Price: $12.95

    5. An undercoat brush because it removes shedding fur like nothing else and reviewers swear their pets can actually tolerate it.

    5-star reviews: 36,118

    Promising review: "My cat has long and thick fur with a puffy undercoat. Our vet recommended this brush and it has been a game changer because now LOVES getting brushed. Her mats are gone and her undercoat has shed out beautifully for the summer. Now she's so soft and shiny!" —Amazon customer

    Price: $15.99

    6. A medicated dog shampoo that's the best-selling dog shampoo on Amazon right now because it's powerfully effective at eliminating fungus, parasites, skin scaling, rashes, inflammation, and greasy skin. Reviewer photos show some really transformative results.

    It's pH balanced for doggos and formulated for pups over 12 weeks old.

    5-star reviews: 24,483

    Promising review: "I have nothing but positive things to say about this shampoo. I recently purchased this shampoo for my pitbull named Hera. She always had issues with her skin and coat, but after she had he first litter she had bald patches and was almost bald in the flank area (her sides). The first time I used this product I followed the bathing instructions. It's now the nine days later and her coat looks better than it ever has. The first picture is after the first wash. The last was the eight days later. All I have to say is give it a try, I am so happy I did.—Amazon customer

    7. A bottle of Stress Coat aquarium water conditioner to dechlorinate your water, which helps fish to be more happy and vibrant.

    A bottle of the product

    5-star reviews: 3,479

    Promising review: "This is THE best stuff ever. My fish love it and it lowers their stress so much so their colors came back and they look so much happier. I have cichlids and color is very important to defining if they are stressed out or not. I have used many pet store recommended water conditioners that aren't even scratching the surface to how much I love this water conditioner." —Cheyenne

    Price: $1.79+ (available in eight sizes and two types)

    8. A poop scooper reviewers are grateful for because it's made of easy-clean smooth plastic, sturdy as heck, extra large, and the bin swivels and rake snaps on for easy storage.

    A black and white dog on a lawn next to the scooper with five tied-up plastic grocery bags full of the dog's poop.

    5-star reviews: 28,773

    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 of 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 really like this handy scooper. It makes a very icky job much easier to handle." —Amazon customer

    Price: $18.99+ (available with or without scented bags

    9. A Cat Dancer toy that's just a piece of cardboard on wire, but boy howdy do kitties adore swatting and jumping at it.

    A cat plays with the toy in an image labelled "CAT DANCER, easily moves like a bug with a flick of the wrist!"

    5-star reviews: 13,795

    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 is the one he loves best. He plays with this until he's panting like a dog and I have never seen him jump so high. He loves it! I highly recommend it!" —Em

    Price: $2.99

    10. A bag of dried mealworms which may sound gross to you, but reviewers say wild and domestic birds just love this stuff. They're great for reptiles too!

    5-star reviews: 3,173

    Promising review: "Okay, dried mealworms does sound really gross. Last year, I ordered dried mealworms and ended up with bluebirds in my backyard on a regular basis. This bag's ten pounds does not sound like much until it arrives and it is as big as a 50-pound bag of oil sunflower seeds. I am getting bluebirds, house finches, Carolina whens, and the odd starling every day. I am putting out a measuring cup full of mealworms each day. The birds love it. I will never eat dried mealworms but at least this product consists of complete mealworms and not broken pieces. Our birds love them!" —Joe T.

    11. A terrarium carpet that absorbs odors and is easy to clean, so your home doesn't smell like baked reptile dung all the time.

    5-star reviews: 5,303

    Promising review: "Okay, so, what happened was, one day my spouse wanted a lizard... two weeks later we had four. All of them are rescued bearded dragons, and two of the three came to our home in sand-filled terrariums. The first morning we woke up the to smell of baking poop sand it was enough to make me want to burn down my house! Luckily, this carpet exists. I use it in all the terrariums and couldn't be happier. They are so super easy to clean too, so there is is literally never any poop left over. The dragons are very pleased too; I don't think they miss the sand at all." —Lady Amazonian

    Price: $4.99+ (available in eight sizes and four colors)

    12. A bag of dog treats to really get your darling pupper's attention when training or trying to lure them away from the apparently delicious garbage.

    A reviewer holds a dog treat before their dog, who is up on their hid legs begging for it


    Promising review: "My lab puppy loves these. We've tried the chicken, rabbit, peanut butter, and salmon flavors and all have been a hit; chicken seems to be the most tempting. I like that they are small, meaning I don't have to break a meat cake into smaller pieces during training and end up with shredded animal residue under my nails for a week. The powerful scent makes them a strong lure for training and more rewarding when my dog completes the challenging task of putting her her butt on the ground. Also great for redirecting my dog when she finds something intoxicating, such as a used condom or wad of toilet paper from the neighbor's trash, that I would prefer to not manually remove from her mouth. She will drop most nasty treasures in favor of a few of these in my palm. Also, beware that if you have a bag of these in your pocket, a pack of neighborhood dogs may suddenly start following you." —Emily L

    Price: $4.99+ (or Subscribe & Save for $4.27+; available in three sizes and 11 flavors)

    13. A dog ear wipe with aloe and eucalyptus that'll de-gunk your doggo's dirty ears with just a quick swipe so you all can avoid another trip to the vet.

    5-star reviews: 16,498

    Promising review: "My coonhound always seems to have smelly and itchy ears. I'm hoping to use these as maintenance rather than having the vet charge every other month. The wipes smell nice, and make cleaning the gunk easy. They are really saturated, which I'm sure helps with the cleaning, so I followed up with a paper towel to help dry his ears afterwards. He didn't seem to mind at all!" —Rina

    Price: $12.99 (or Subscribe & Save for $12.49)

    14. A ChuckIt ball because it's amazingly durable and the puppers adore them.

    5-star reviews: 32,121

    Promising review: "Well, this is the ONLY toy that our dog LOVES. The ChuckIt Ultra is her obsession. She has them strategically hidden around the house for quick and easy access. Also, she follows us around with one, and sometimes even brings one to bed with her. She is a 50lb Springer Spaniel and has only managed to crack one of these balls in over two years, and she chews on them almost like a pacifier — she'll just sit there and chomp on it. They are easy to throw, they bounce great, they float, they are super easy to wash off (that alone is worth the five stars for anyone out there who has tried to wash off a tennis ball) and they are really durable." —P. Hanson

    Price: $4.95+ (available in three sizes)

    15. A small animal potty-training litter rabbit owners love because it helps their stubborn furry friends get litter box trained within a day or two — and it soaks up urine like nobody's business.

    The litter

    5-star reviews: 3,798

    Promising review: "I have had my rabbit for close to three years and I have never actually been able to litter box train him. We have been using this product for a week and it worked so well! The litter soaks up every drop and it basically makes the odor non existent. I will definitely repurchase this and I definitely recommend anyone giving it a try." —Amazon customer

    Price: $8.49 (or Subscribe & Save for $8.07)

    16. A bottle of ear drops that use hydrocortizone and enzymes to help solve doggie ear irritation, fungal issues, and infections.

    5-star reviews: 34,131

    Promising review: "My 1-year-old has had chronic ear infections for at least 7 months. Just like everyone else, multiple different treatments, doctors visits, and other attempts yielded and no relief. As soon as these drops arrived I started treating her. She has made huge improvements! Before now, she wouldn't even let me look at her ear and it was swollen and bloody, but now it looks just like the other one! She is so much happier now! Will definitely continue using this product to keep my baby girl happy and healthy!" —KrisBarn

    Price: $21.99+ (available in two sizes)

    17. An adjustable-width metal gate to keep for two- and four-legged babies on the other side of the doorway. Reviewers say it's virtually indestructible!

    A puppy looks over the gate

    The gate expands to fit openings between 29–34 and 35–38.5 inches wide and stands 30 inches tall. It will not however fit an opening between 34-35 inch. Be sure to measure before ordering!

    5-star reviews: 32,011

    Promising review: "I had it assembled and working in less than ten minutes. It is durable, strong and fits my door opening perfectly. I have two five-month-old golden retrievers who destroyed the two wooden gates we had before I found this one. They can't chew through this gate nor are they able to knock it down through brut force! I am 100% satisfied." —Amazon customer

    Price: $39.99

    18. A best-selling pet nail clipper reviewers use to save money by doing their mutt-manicures at home instead of going to the groomer.

    A person makes a thumbs-up while holding the clippers in front of a dog

    5-star reviews: 16,944

    Promising review: "I have had all kinds of nail clippers, I didn't like any of them. I bought this pair a few weeks and absolutely love them, apparently my dog does also, since he can sit perfectly still while I trim his nails, which he has never done! They are sharp and make a good clean cut without cutting the dogs nails to make them bleed. Better than paying to get their nails cut all the time. I give these clippers five stars and the manufacturer 100 stars. These are great clippers that are well-worth the price!" —Just me

    Price: $15.95

    19. A rubber-sided pet hair squeegee that'll rid your rugs and upholstery of fur you had no idea was even there.

    A rug showing how much hair has been scraped out of a rug using the product

    5-star reviews: 23,135

    Promising review: "We moved about six months ago and bought brand new rugs. I’ve been using a pet-specific vacuum, but noticed it wasn’t collecting the hair out of the rugs. I knew there would be some fur, I just didn’t expect to be able to make a kitten out of it by the end! Before using it on the rug, I also used it on all the furniture and it was amazing there, too." —Sarah

    Price: $12

    20. A baking soda-based deodorizer to make your cat's litter box smell like not much at all, without having to mask odors with an overpowering fragrance.

    A box of the deoderizer

    For all y'all with fragrance sensitivities, sorry but this product is not fragrance-free. It has a light citrus smell. Some reviewers who are scent-averse really like it, but you know your limits of course and should order accordingly.

    5-star reviews: 6,483

    Promising review: "NEVER get five cats! But, if you do this stuff will eliminate the stink in the litter box. We still have to scoop them daily, but the house smells like humans live there, which is nice. I like this brand because it eliminates order without adding too much additional smell. I don't want my litter boxes to smell like pee but I'd also don't want them to smell like lilacs or a pine forest. Most brands smell like something peed in a pine forest." —Amazon customer

    Price: $1.68+ (available in two sizes)

    21. A custom-printed metal pet tag that's way cheaper and lighter than the ones you can get at PetSmart. It can say a whole lot of whatever you want (on both sides!), and reviewers swear it's durable enough to withstand constant rubbing from other metal tags.

    A pet wearing a tag in red that says in white letters, "please call and take me home to my parents"

    5-star reviews: 22,543

    Promising review: "Perfect little tags that are way cheaper than those heavy tags at PetSmart. I got two sets of small circle tags printed front and back for both my pups: the tags have their name, me and my partner's names, our cellphone numbers, our address, AND some funny things to show they're loved so please call and take them home. They're holding up pretty well. My pups wear them everyday along with their county rabies tags. They're heavy at all, so wearing multiple tags is not a problem for my ten- and 14-pound babies." —Chelsea

    Price: $3.99 (available in two sizes and eight colors)

    22. A massive and sturdy ferret cage reviewers also love for their other small mammals and reptiles.

    The cage used for reptiles

    5-star reviews: 3,881

    Promising review: "If you are on the fence, order this. I have three of them now. Love this cage. Was looking for something for two rescue chinchillas, and ended up upgrading all of my rats as well. Plenty of space for everyone and all their toys. I have a group of 18 adult female rats in one of these! Granted, a couple are pretty old and not very active at all, but there is plenty of space in there everyone. Solidly built, a breeze to assemble." —Amazon customer

    Price: $149.99+ (available in packs of two or four)

    23. A puzzle with sliding boxes that open using removable pieces so you can hide treats for your dog to find. Reviewers say it keeps their pups entertained for hours.

    A dog who has solved the puzzle

    5-star reviews: 29,645

    Promising review: "At 14 years old, the VIP (very important papillon) is still as inquisitive as ever. I was hesitant in getting him a puzzle thinking he wouldn’t be interested, but it ended up being one of the best treats I could get him. This is a well-made and fascinating toy for my dog to play with. The pieces are light enough for small dogs to maneuver however, and everything can be easily washed if you put wet or oily treats inside. Overall, if you’re looking to keep your dog engaged and want to give him a little challenge when getting his meals, this is a great toy to consider." —Amazon customer

    Price: $9.99+ (available in sixteen versions with four difficulty levels)

    24. A fish tank net with a strong mesh and coated handle to gently catch your fishy friends when it comes time to clean the bowl. Reviewers agree it works exactly how you'd expect it to.

    An image of the net next to an illuminated fish tank with the text "serves its purpose well"

    5-star reviews: 6,000

    Promising review: "This fish net works very well for us. The netting is made of high-quality mesh, the metal handle is covered in vinyl, and overall it appears to be of great quality. We use this net to remove Betta fish and tetras with no problem. The mesh head is four inches wide and the handle is about 13 inches in length. Works perfectly as it should. I’m pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to make your fish catching life so much easier." —Kailey

    Price: $1.99

    25. A Burt's Bees "no tears" two-in-one puppy shampoo and conditioner because it's gentle enough for even the most sensitive of young canines.

    A reviewer holds the shampoo bottle

    5-star reviews: 7,543

    Promising review: "My pup is the cutest. Yet he likes to find the smelliest things to roll in on the daily. In the two months I rescued him, we've taken 13 baths. This stuff is greatness. It doesn't irritate his severely allergenic skin, it removes whatever yuck he's rolled in, it doesn't mess with eyes when I get a little overboard with the soap, and his fur always looks radiant. Top notch." —LaLa Love

    Price: $6.98+ (or Subscribe & Save for $6.63+; also available with a brush or sprayer)

    26. A liner that'll make the unpleasant chore of emptying your cat's litter box way easier, made of two-millimeter thick plastic that's definitely up to the task or resisting tears from your digging feline's ferocious claws.

    A box of the liners

    5-star reviews: 9,108

    Promising review: "I am beyond busy! I am a fulltime healthcare worker with two kids, two big dogs and now a cat. Our sweet Aspen at age six can dig can dig like you wouldn’t believe, to get her business done! I can say though these bags withstand the use. I highly recommend these bags." —Amazon customer

    5-star reviews: 8,912

    Promising review: "My kitten was too excited once I placed it inside her bowl, so I never got to take a before picture. It’s a good small portion though, and she LOVED it. I’ve given her different wet food brands and this was the first time she finished way past half way. She’s very happy so we love it. Thanks for helping me keep my cat happy!" —Cielo

    28. A turtle food folks adore so much they keep buying it for years.

    Price: $4.65+ (available in four sizes)

    29. A water- and urine-proof anti-tracking rubber mat that's better than sponge-style mats because the two-piece design makes it easy to dump the litter out. All you do is fold the two long sides towards each other, the honeycomb part separates from the solid bottom, and all the trapped litter can be poured right into the trash.

    A reviewer shows how much litter is trapped by the large gray mat

    5-star reviews: 11,540

    Promising review: "I was pleased to receive this new litter mat and find that it works very well. The litter falls down the holes and is not seen so it looks clean all the time. Very few granules are being tracked off the mat and I see the litter falling down through to the lower layer to be poured out later. I previously owned two mats purchased at Walmart and found them to be gross because the squishy plastic fibers trap the litter but don't release it well." —LyricMama

    Price: $17.99+ (available in brown)

    30. And a cross-body bag to keep your small animal as close to you in the store as you already know them to be in your heart.
