If pet owners can agree on one thing, it's that buying furnituretoysfood and grooming products for their fur babies adds up—fast. Not that we're complaining, because we can also agree that their cuddles and undying love are priceless. Still, we wouldn't mind saving a few bucks where we can. You too? Then the Chewy Black Friday Sale 2023 is the best time to stock up. From now through November 29, the go-to destination is offering epic deals across the board. What's more, new customers at Chewy can score free delivery on first-time orders and up to 50 percent off first auto-ship orders on select food, treats and more.

If you're a loyal shopper, don't worry—you can also spoil your pets with marked-down orthopedic pet beds ($36; $25), cat scratching posts ($80; $50), chew toys ($16; $10) and a DNA Test for Dogs ($199; $127). As for all you Chewy newbies? Whether you load up your cart with puppy essentials to reach the $49 threshold or go for the $50+ items to guarantee the discount, it's the perfect excuse to join the Chewy fan club.

The Best Food Deals at Chewy

Pet food is probably one of the easiest things to shop for during this sale since you already know what they like, whether that's Iams, Royal Canin or Blue Buffalo. But if you've been thinking of switching up their food, now is the time to explore other options without breaking the bank.

Interested in dog food for sensitive skin/stomachs? Look no further than this Purina Pro Plan salmon and rice formula dog food (from $72; $42), which isn't your typical pellet-like kibble. It's specially prepared with real salmon and sunflower oil, and filled with omega-6 fatty acids, so it helps sensitive skin stay healthy, while antioxidants boost the immune system. Plus, it has oatmeal and natural prebiotic fibers, so it's gentle on the digestive system.

Meanwhile, cat owners say you can't go wrong with the Purina Friskies seafood and chicken pate wet food (from $30; $23) since it features an assortment of 40 seafood and chicken pate recipes with four flavors: ocean whitefish, mariner’s catch, chicken and tuna and salmon. Just remember, new customers only have until November 29 to snag that additional 50 percent off orders with auto-ship (along with free shipping!), so shop wisely. And prepare for endless kisses when all your fur baby's new stuff comes in the mail.

The Best Toy and Apparel  Deals at Chewy

It's no secret that you can snag deals on toys and apparel at Chewy every day, but very rarely will you find discounts on Santa's helpers squeaky toys or gingerbread cookie puzzles. Better yet, when you buy two select toys, you'll get the third one free.

And if you're going to snag anything for free, it might as well be the Muttluks Original winter dog boots. Not only are they fleece-lined, so your pup's paws stay protected in ice, salt and snow (shout-out to their waterproof polyester fabric), but they also have reflective details, so you can keep track of them during late-night or early-morning walks. But do they stay on? Reviewers claim they will as long as you choose the right size. FYI: They're apparently super long-lasting, too (one buyer has had their pet's boots for a decade!).

The Best Pet Tech Deals at Chewy

If you're looking to streamline your pet routine, these tech deals are a good place to start. In fact, one PureWow writer swears the Whisker Litter-Robot 4 is worth every penny, and this set—which includes a Litter-Robot 4, litter trapping mat, step, six-pack of odor eliminators, cleansing wipes and litter box liners—is currently $50 off (was $799). You can read her full review, but essentially, the device automatically scoops the poop for you by rotating and dropping any clumps into a waste bin in the bottom of the machine. It also helps you cut back on litter use, while reducing litter dust and yes, even that dreaded litter smell. You can even connect to an app that sends health insights about your kitty and allows you to monitor their activity. In other words, it's a game-changer for cat mamas and papas.

Speaking of life-changing items, the Petdiary automatic dog and cat feeder ($80; $65) feeds your pet up to four meals a day so you don't have to. One buyer said it exceeded her expectations: "Setting it up was a breeze with user-friendly instructions, and its voice recording feature allowed me to call my furball for meals even when I'm away." So it's super convenient for us *and* pet-approved?

The Best Pet Furniture Deals at Chewy

When it comes to pet furniture, we know all about the best cat trees and dog beds and sofas. So we knew exactly what to look for during the Chewy sale, starting with the FurHaven Calming Cuddler dog bed (from $66; $35). Since it boasts more than 400 five-star reviews, it's safe to say that pets and their parents are obsessed with the fuzzy, donut-shaped bed. Mainly because it has a premium high loft and high-density fiberfill that supports and comforts your furry friend (in fact, the faux shag fur is actually meant to mimic a mother’s fur coat). But the best part is that it's machine-washable and reportedly holds its shape nicely afterward.

There's also the SmartCat cat scratching post ($80; $50) made for kitties to lounge, play, scratch and nap—let's just say it'll keep them busy. As a bonus, the sisal finish on the post blends in with most decor, so it won't be a total eyesore in your home. And don't sleep on the other pet furniture deals while you're browsing.

The Best Grooming Deals at Chewy

A clean pet is a happy pet, but just like your haircare products add up, so do theirs. That's why this is the perfect time to stock up on everything you need to groom them from home. While a gallon-sized bottle of TropiClean oatmeal and tea tree dog shampoo ($56;$40) was already a no-brainer, you can also score an extra 30 percent off at checkout with code PET30. Other essentials include the Vetnique Labs Glandex wipes ($16;$14) that support anal gland health while refreshing your pet's tush thanks to its rock star formula featuring everything from aloe leaf juice to vitamin E.

Another tip? Pick up the Bass Brushes pet groomer brush while you can because it's currently flying off the shelves. Known for detangling even the most stubborn dog hairs, some reviewers even claim that it allows you to make fewer visits to the groomer.
