6. All Four Paws Comfy Cone
It can be hard to balance comfort with healing, especially after a pet is injured or goes through surgery. An alternative to rigid and plastic medical “c-o-n-e-s,” the Comfy Cone keeps cats and dogs from further agitating a sensitive area or wound while still allowing them maximum comfort while they walk, eat, sleep and play. Highly adjustable as well as vet-tested and vet-approved, the Comfy Cone won’t add insult to injury.
7. Coconut Snoutstik
With winter coming up, it’s important to protect your pup’s sensitive nose against dryness, cracking and irritation from exposure to harsh weather. Opie & Dixie’s Organic Snoutstik now comes in a coconut version! This rich, fatty oil is used in many skin care products for humans, but now dogs can benefit as well. It’s naturally antibacterial and antifungal and makes an excellent moisturizer to help heal sensitive snouts.
8. Pura Naturals Paw Rescue
Snouts aren’t the only body part that need extra lovin’ as the weather gets more extreme!

Since it’s fragrance-, chemical- and paraben-free, Paw Rescue is safe even for the most sensitive pups, and there’s no need to worry if your pet licks up some of the balm.
9. Sturtevant’s Canine Antiseptic Formula
With pest levels (including fleas, ticks and more) reaching alarming levels across the U.S., it’s important for pet owners to know what options are out there for combatting parasites.

The versatile Canine Antiseptic Formula can treat conditions ranging from atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, sarcoptic canine scabies and staphyloccus intermedius pyoderma.
10. Espree Pet Oral Care
If we’re being honest, the task of brushing your pet’s teeth (while very important) is not much fun. We’re guessing that pets enjoy the process even less. With Espree’s Pet Oral Care products, you can achieve all the benefits of a strong dental hygiene routine with less of the struggle. Formulated with vets, these products remove plaque and tartar (without brushing), freshen breath and support healthy gums. Appropriate for dogs and cats!
