    21 Products From Amazon With Before-And-After Photos That Anyone With A Pet Should Probably See

    If your pet could speak, they would ask you to buy these products.

    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. A stain and odor remover that'll be no match for messes and unpleasant smells left behind by fur babies. An immaculately clean carpet AND a wonderful snuggle buddy? Yes, you can have both!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm not going to lie, this stuff is significantly more expensive than most other available carpet sprays. You could probably buy four or five bottles of Febreze for the cost of this stuff, but the competition won't work nearly as well as Rocco & Roxie. This stuff is AMAZING." —Brian

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    2. A snout soother stick to provide some much-needed relief to your dog's chapped/crusty nose.

    This snout soother is organic, vegan, and made with all-natural ingredients!

    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 this 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

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    3. Lifting pads you can just press down into rug stains — ya know, things from pets, spilled drinks, blood, dirt, and more. Keep it there for up to 24 hours and say, "Adios, stains!"

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These things are AMAZING. They are magical. If you have a pet who has accidents in the house, these are a MUST-HAVE. After your pet has an accident, all you need to do is open up the packet, place the pad on the accident spot, and then step on the pad to release the magic formula. Leave it there for at least half an hour or up to 24 hours. Why the discrepancy, you might be asking? Because these pads work on DRIED STAINS. Holla!!!! My puppy has been driving me bonkers with accidents in the house, but I don't sweat it anymore thanks to these pads. They are seriously miracle-workers, and I will always have a supply of them in my house going forward." —Lisa Koivu

    4. A cleaning magnet to help clear away algae fogging up the fish tank. Now you can really see and marvel at all of your beautiful fishies as they majestically swim about.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Does a fantastic job cleaning the algae — even old stubborn build-up growth — off the inside of my glass aquarium. Works even better than I expected, and the felt pad on the bit that's in contact with the outside of the glass does a decent job cleaning off any water spots and finger/hand-prints. Also, I have degenerative osteoarthritis, peripheral and small-fiber neuropathy, and hEDS (among other issues), all of which make it very difficult for me to do much of anything with my hands. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to use this thingy, but it was a lot less difficult than I thought it would be." —Franklin

    Get it from Amazon for $9.59+ (available in four sizes).

    5. A cat dander spray infused with oat flour and aloe vera to condition your kitty's dry skin and help reduce flaking.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $6.49.

    6. A pet ear cleanser for a painless and easy way to treat your fluffer's dirty ears so they 1) don't suffer from infections down the line, and 2) can REALLY hear all the compliments you want to give them.

    This is, of course, free of harsh chemicals and cleaners!

    Promising review: "My husband and I just adopted our cute puppy, Winston, from the Humane Society. When we adopted him, his ears were unfortunately pretty dirty, but after we used this ear cleaner today, his ears are so clean!! I'm so amazed at everything it managed to get out. Our puppy's ears look so much better now! I would highly recommend this product to anyone with a dog." —Jerome F

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    7. A bird cage cleaner and deodorizer to quickly get rid of bird droppings, and give their cage a fresh scent, all without the yucky residue other cage cleaners may leave behind.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This works quickly and easily to clean bird poop off of all kinds of surfaces. I spritz it, leave it for a few minutes, then wipe right off! Way better than the soaking, scraping, and scrubbing I’ve always had to do. So much easier! Especially on the wooden perches, and my window sills where my birds love to sit. It has a very nice, clean smell that’s kind of plant-y and very fresh. Awesome for bird lovers, so glad I gave it a try and won’t go without it from now on!" —Leah

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in three sizes).

    8. An antiseptic spray to help treat skin infections caused by yeast, bacteria, ringworm, and pyoderma.

    On the left, an irritated and red paw, and on the right, the same paw looking less red and irritated
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Do your dogs smell like bread dough? Or Fritos? Do their ears smell REALLY bad? Do they lick their paws often? Do they bite their legs, back, hips, or hind end? Do they lick their bellies often? Have you noticed small, scablike spots in their undercarriage? Brown spots on their skin? Red skin? Or the ultimate — a darkening of the skin that rubs off? If so, then your dogs probably have a yeast problem, which you might not ever have heard of, but this spray will provide instant relief! Most doctors first diagnose yeast problems simply by smell, so save yourself the vet bill and try this first! You can't get rid of it just by giving them a bath — you need a medicated shampoo or spray like this in order to effectively manage the yeast, and you have to use it for at least three months. I know it seems like a long time, but trust me, I learned the hard way. Yes, veterinarians can also diagnose by scraping skin cells and looking at them under a microscope, but generally they will diagnose a yeast infection in dogs simply by smelling them. Most pet owners never even know that dogs can get yeast infections. I didn't know, and I've had dogs for at least 15 years. This spray is the same strength you would get from a veterinarian's office, but without the cost of that bill. I highly, highly, highly recommend this spray for treating yeast and fungal infections in dogs. I'll try to update with more symptoms and photos as I can and as I think of them. I didn't take a lot of photos when I started treating the dogs and when they started having problems, but I'm always happy to help other pet owners navigate this horrible, horrible affliction. If you have any questions, feel free to ask — I'd rather help others so they can get their pets treated right the first time and for a fraction of the cost of going to the vet." —Amazoncustomer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    9. A wood polish and conditioner for anyone who has a pet that decided it would be a fun idea to utilize wooden furniture as a scratch post. Have no fear, because restoring your wooden furniture to pre-pet scratching days is here.

    On the top, a reviewer's wooden furniture with scratch marks, and on the bottom, the same wooden furniture now completely free of the scratch marks
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I honestly can’t believe how well this stuff works. Like magic it restored pet claw- AND pet water bowl-damaged wood all over my house. I am amazed at the results. Thank you! (This is NOT a paid review.)" —Nicole Thomas

    Get it from Amazon for $14.07.

    10. A pet hair roller because everything about our little friends is absolutely perfect except for the fact that their fur and hair get on everything we own. But we still love them, right?

    amazon.com, 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

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    11. Nose drops to help provide some sweet relief to your cat's runny nose, sneezing, congestion, and sinuses.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product came yesterday and we saw immediate results with our 15-year-old cat. She has had a chronic condition for several years — labored breathing, constant sneezing, and thick snot she tries to clear from one nostril. Our vet has told us that in old cats this condition is fairly normal and there is no 'magic bullet' that will treat it effectively. Yesterday we put five drops of this product in her wet food and she immediately stopped sneezing and blowing mucus. She seemed far less stressed and her breathing appears to be far less labored. We gave her a second dose yesterday afternoon and then another one this morning. In that time she has sneezed only once or twice...when before she was sneezing dozens and dozens of times each day. She is not blowing mucus...when before her nose was running constantly. I hope it works for your cat as well as it appears to be working for ours." —JHO

    Get it from Amazon for $8.09.

    12. A plunger for making the chore of cleaning your furry friend's paws a seamless process for both of you. No more worrying about the dirt they're gonna track around your floors after they come back inside.

    To use, just add warm water to the top row of bristles, insert your pet's dirty paw, and gently move it in and out as the bristles clean the dirt. Then use a towel to dry their feet, pour away the dirt water, and voilà!

    Promising review: "Best money I've ever spent on a dog with feet. We have a goldendoodle with curly hair and large paws, and a brand-new yard on the coast that is 95% sand. In the past three months, I've been wiping his paws ineffectively and spending most of my housekeeping time sweeping/vacuuming all the sand that he brings in. Our new veterinarian, upon hearing me whine about the situation, recommended I buy this product because she uses it with her own dogs. From the first time I used it, I was sold! It looks like one of those oversize water jugs you can get at a convenience store, with a fitted insert for paws and legs. I stuck my hand (and my kids') inside to try it out, and the bristles inside are very soft and will not hurt sensitive paw pads. I wish I'd found this years ago; it would have saved my sanity and my floors many times over. I've already recommended it to my friends and family who have dogs and understand the struggle." —Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in four colors and in three sizes).

    13. A SpotBot hands-free stain cleaner, so scrubbing up pet messes can now be a thing of the past. All you have to do is press the button, sit back, and relax.

    amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $179.99.

    14. A nail grinding tool for a seamless way to trim your pup's nails. They'll be happy no clippers are involved, and you'll be happy when they don't scratch you.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Our dog HATES getting her nails done, and I got sick of paying someone every few weeks to do them. We’ve tried clippers and other file systems, but have had very limited success. This has already paid for itself by avoiding three trips to the doggy salon now. It’s easy to set up, charges quickly, is easy to hold, and works fast. Other trimmers have taken forever to make almost no noticeable difference in her nails, but this is fast and strong enough to allow me to hit each nail for just a few seconds and be done. We are both extremely grateful!" —Elissa Spicer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    15. Eye wash pads to gently clean and soothe irritated eyes. 🎶They can see clearly now the crust is gone. 🎶

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Oscar gets really bad infections around his right eye; it causes his whole area to get red and crusted up. We tried this and it worked great! Even after the first use we could see a big difference. I don't use it as directed, maybe once a day but it still works great. Will absolutely buy again. P.S. forgive the before pic (left); he was helping me size baby hats I was making. No cats were tortured; he just acts like he was." —April Mcleod

    16. A pet hair-removal broom and squeegee that'll help you get rid of the furry mess your fluffy friend leaves behind. It might not be visible to the naked eye, but you just KNOW it's living in your carpet...and TBH...it's quite gross.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing just plain works. We got a mature golden retriever last year and were told he didn't shed. Then in the spring, he started shedding badly. We were tired of hair everywhere, and somehow I realized that dragging my shoe across the carpet balled the hair up. I found this product on a whim one day and knew it had to be better than my shoe! I ordered it and it was tough at first. The bristles pulled the hair up but then caught the tufts and spread them around. I found that using short, quick strokes with the rake turned upside-down got the best results. The backside is more like a squeegee and helps pull the hair up in long rolls and keeps the hair in one big pile." —Nick V.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    17. A pet pro vacuum that can be used on both hard wood floors and carpet to effectively clean stains and eliminate odors. Just look at the magical pictures below.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’m a big fan! After hours of researching and debating, I took the plunge and ordered it. I just used it for the first time today and I’m in love. We just built a house with all tile floors — it’s very dusty from the new construction. My floors look amazing. If you’re on the edge, just do it. We also have three dogs, and I’m very pleasantly surprised. The amount of dirt and dog hair it picks up is impressive." —kmjacobs

    Get it from Amazon for $299.99.

    18. A grooming brush to make the task of removing tangled, dead hair off your floof super quick and easy, and a heck of a lot cheaper than constant visits to the groomer.

    Promising review: "Great product! I have a 5-month-old lab who would scream when I brushed her. With this brush, she relaxes and I get five times as much hair off. I didn't know she had that much loose hair! Buying another for my brother!" —Katie Boone

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    19. A citrus-scented urine remover, because in a perfect world, our pets would do their business where we trained them to, but sometimes accidents happen. Now you can clean it away fuss-free, and enjoy a fresh scent, too!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "A product that reliably eliminates cat urine is basically magic, because cat urine used to be a death sentence to any item. Now I won't use anything other than this product. My cat chooses a rug to pee on a few times a year, and this product saves the rug every time. I've also successfully used it on bathroom tile/grout. The key is to make sure the whole affected area is covered in enough of this stuff, but it will work. If you don't think the smell is gone, you either missed a spot or didn't saturate per the directions. I always keep some in the closet for bad cat moments! Since I've been using this the last five years, I have saved two big rugs, a bathroom mat, and a blanket." —Lacy

    Get it from Amazon for $22.97.

    20. A shaver clipper set to make clipping their fur easy peazy lemon squeezy. All you have to do now is take pictures of how fabulous they look and show everyone.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this clipper to use on my blind, longhair Persian cat. She was incredibly matted and I had been been neglecting her, dreading the shaving process. I had a different clipper that did not work well and got snagged in her fur. When we used this Oneisall clipper, it was a breeze! It was extremely quiet, clipped easily through her fur, and didn't freak her out. We were able to do her whole body at one time instead of in spurts. I would highly recommend this clipper. It's great!" —Nancy Z

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in four colors).

    21. A pet hair-eraser vacuum so you can take care of what is the only slightly negative thing about having a furry animal in your house — the HAIR. Everything else is great, though. We stan pets; go adopt a pet.

    amazon.com

    Features multilayered filtration and a 16-foot power cord. Includes two specially designed nozzles to pull out dirt and hair from areas like the stairs and upholstery.

    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. 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! 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

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available with or without filter).
