Whether you’ve got cats, dogs, or any other furry animal, your floor (and clothing and furniture!) is probably covered in fur. With the super-suction Dyson Ball Animal 2 Pet Vacuum Cleaner, fur will no longer be an issue. The vacuum is easy to maneuver around curves and various types of flooring, and it comes with a tangle-free turbine tool which powerfully removes pet hair from stubborn carpets. The Dyson also has a reaching wand for stairs, your car, and furniture. It’s easy to haul around, change up tools between the combination tool and the stair tool, and empty quickly with a push-button release 0.3-gallon bin. The vacuum is 42 inches tall and weighs 17.5 pounds.
Since The Spruce Pets’ inception, we’ve been devoted to sharing tips on how to best care for your pet. That’s why we’re thrilled to introduce our brand-new collection of pet care products which is designed to keep your furry friends happy and healthy. Whether your cat has a water phobia or your dog has mobility issues that make it hard for them to climb in and out of the tub, The Spruce Waterless Pet Wash makes bath time simple and struggle-free.
Our plant-derived, rinse-free formula cleanses, conditions, and moisturizes your pet’s coat and skin. Since it’s free of parabens, sulfates, and dyes (plus it’s pH-balanced), it won’t leave them itchy or dry like harsh chemicals often do. Simply spray a generous amount of The Spruce Waterless Pet Wash onto your pet’s hair or fur, let it sit for a minute, and then wipe it off with a soft cloth.
The Spruce Waterless Pet Wash is available in three pleasant scents: Lavender (with clary sage), Oatmeal (with fresh mango), and Fresh (with neroli, apple, and orchid). Each fragrance is derived from pet-safe natural essential oils and our formula is Leaping Bunny certified.
Keeping your carpet in top condition is no easy feat. If you have cats, dogs, bunnies, or any other furry friends running about, things get even harder. That’s where The Spruce Stain & Odor Remover comes in. Our plant-derived, enzyme-activated formula tackles tough stains like urine, feces, and vomit by breaking down the organic proteins that lead to odors. Just shake the bottle, spray liberally on any stains in sight, let it sit for up to 15 minutes (depending on how stubborn the stain is), and then scrub with a clean cloth.
Thanks to the Fresh scent (neroli, apple, and orchid), your carpet will be back to normal in no time. Best of all, since our formula eliminates odors down to a molecular level, it discourages your pet from soiling the same spot, making upkeep much easier.
It’s hard leaving your furry friend at home when you head to work. With the Petcube pet camera, you can keep an eye on them whenever you are away.

The cube is equipped with 1080 HD video, a zooming lens, and a 160-degree wide-angle view. If you want to interact when away, you can do that, too, with the two-way audio system, plus a laser toy that you can control from your phone. The Petcube is compatible with iPhone and Android, and it's set up to work with Amazon Alexa.
