The 10 Highest-Rated Pet Products on Amazon Include Nail Clippers and an Odor Eliminator That Actually Works
You want only the best for Buddy and Whiskers, because they’re a part of the family and the cutest members at that. Which explains why we’re constantly taking pictures of them doing, well, anything and why we can’t stop talking about the harness that has seriously been a game changer for morning walks. Since our pets are an extension of us, they deserve the best of the best—and it seems Amazon shoppers feel the same way. Here, we rounded up ten of Amazon’s best-selling pet products that reviewers seriously can’t shut up about (BTW, all of these items have more than5,000 five-star reviews).
1. AMAZONBASICS DOG AND PUPPY TRAINING PADS
PureWow’s entertainment and news editor Lex Goodman relied on these puppy pads when potty training her dog Ro, who is now 1.5 years old. “So many were included in this box that I had extra even after my dog was potty trained. And they’re thick enough that you don’t have any leakage onto carpet or floors underneath. I found that I needed to overlap a couple of them because of my dog’s love of peeing on the border (where there’s no absorbent padding), but other than that, they were great,” she says. The pad is super absorbent thanks to a core that turns liquid into gel upon contact. It’s no wonder more than 7,000 dog owners gave these puppy pads a five-star review.
2. Rocco & Roxie Supply Co. Professional Strength Stain & Odor Eliminator
Rocco & Roxie Supply Co. gets that pets can be messy. And also stinky (we still love you, Fido!). The brand’s professional-strength stain and odor eliminator contains natural enzymatic bacteria that gets to work breaking down stains and eliminating odor ASAP. Plus, it’s chlorine-free, so it’s safe to use around pets and kids. One reviewer even goes so far as to dub it “liquid gold,” adding, “New or old urine, this cleaner is phenomenal. The stains sometimes disappear right in front of you. Don’t know how many products we’ve tried; this is the very first one that deserved a five-star review.”
3. Petstages Cat Tracks Cat Toy
This interactive cat toy is designed to satisfy your feline’s hunting and exercise needs. The three tiers are equipped with brightly colored moving balls that rotate around each ring and are practically begging to be batted. The result? A toy that will keep your cat engaged for hours. “I have four cats that are always looking for something to get into or make noise with,” one reviewer writes. “They have all taken turns at it and only stopped playing with it long enough to eat.” One thing to note? Owners with particularly crafty cats do mention that they’re able to pull the balls out, so take that into account when purchasing.
4. Greenie’s Original Teenie Natural Dental Dog Treats (22 Pack)
A treat that will keep Otis occupied and make his breath smell better? We can get down with that. Greenies dental treats have a unique texture that cleans teeth and maintains healthy gums for all breeds, and they’re made from natural ingredients plus vitamins and minerals. Associate managing editor Rachel Gulmi’s dogs are big fans. “Both of my dogs are obsessed with these dental treats. I truly don’t know why, because they aren’t flavored like anything specific and have a much different texture compared to most treats, but they get so excited to eat one every morning. Brushing their teeth isn’t the easiest, so these are a great way to help maintain their dental hygiene between full cleanings.”
5. ChomChom Roller Pet Hair Remover
Like the classic lint roller but better, because it doesn’t have sticky adhesive paper that runs out the morning of the big meeting. Just roll the ChomChom roller back and forth over the area that needs cleaning, and the patented high-quality brush system will pick up stray hairs and trap them in the chamber. When you’re done, just empty the chamber and it’s ready to use again. “Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life?” one happy customer writes. “Sticky rollers work fine for clothes, but this is the only product that has ever completely removed all the cat hair from my bed.”
6. Rabbitgoo No-Pull Dog Harness
“Every time we try to take our dog out, he always wants to run and pulls constantly, even though [he’s] choking himself! We noticed a big difference in walking our dog immediately during the very first use [of this harness]. I am confident that with regular use, he will become used to it and stop pulling completely. (Of course, the true test will be when a rabbit or squirrel crosses our path!)” says one reviewer. The Rabbitgoo no-pull harness is specially designed with two leash rings that make it ideal for training dogs who pull. Sure, it’s not the most aesthetically pleasing harness out there, but you can swap it for a sleeker style once your pooch’s walks have improved.
7. Hertzko Self-Cleaning Slicker Brush
This cat and dog brush is so beloved, it has racked up more than 8,000 five-star reviews on Amazon. Buyers like the fact that gently removes loose hair, tangles and matted hair—without leaving strands all over your house. The brush’s bristles are retractable, so when you’re done grooming, they can be pressed back into their chamber, releasing any hair they picked up directly into the trash.
8. AmazonBasics Folding Metal Dog Crate
Leave it to AmazonBasics to create a dog crate that’s sturdy, easy to set up and insanely affordable. “The same size kennel sells for over $100 at the big box pet stores. I was kind of expecting the quality to be terrible because it was so cheap, but it’s almost the same quality as the most expensive kennels I have,” says one of the 12,000 five-star reviewers.
9. Earth Rated Dog Poop Bags (120 Pack)
When it comes to poop bags, these are the sh*t. No joke. They’re also strong and 100 percent leak-proof, plus they have an odor-blocking lavender scent to make your post-scooping stroll to the garbage bin almost enjoyable. Senior commerce editor Brianna Lapolla says they’re the only bags she’ll use when walking her dog, Louie. “They come in convenient, compostable cardboard boxes, and the bags themselves are also compostable so I don’t feel bad about using a few every day. Total game changer.”
10. Boshel Pet Nail Clippers
This ergonomically designed pet nail clipper is recommended by the pros (i.e., actual pet groomers and vets), so we totally trust it will do the job. Each clipper is made from high-quality 3.5mm-thick stainless-steel blades that ensure a smooth, precise cut every time—a must for squirmy fur babies. And the safety stop design prevents you from cutting down too far and injuring your pet (phew).
