Dogs with arthritis and neck or back issues will love this product. Elevated food and water bowls keep them from having to reach to the ground and straining their necks.

The Vantic Elevated Dog Bowls come in several diferent sizes so you can choose the size appropriate for your fur-kids. Set in an adjustable bamboo stand, the bowl can be adjusted for both height and angle. If your pup needs a specific angle for comfort or health reasons, then you can easily set it for a 15º angle. It also comes with silicone feet that keep the bowls from sliding around on hard floors.

Our pick for the best overall pet product in January, the Vantic Elevated Dog Bowls are as beautiful as they are versatile.

Wow is it cold out there! Some parts of the U.S. are well below freezing and unless you have a husky or malamute, your dog is probably wishing he’d learned how to use the toilet like a human.

The IECOii Extra Warm Reflective Adjustable Dog Jacket has a polar fleece liner and a durable outer shell. The coat has a turtle neck that folds down when you don’t need it and side-clip buckles make it easy to adjust the size when Fido ate all the cat food in the middle of the night.

We love the wide selection of colors and sizes from super small to extra-large with everything from yellow and black to camo. The IECOii Extra Warm Reflective Adjustable Dog Jacket gets our pick for the best dog deal in January – get it while you can!

Best for Playful Kittens: DoogCat Ball Track

DoogCat Cat Ball Track
  • A three-tier ball track for kittens.
  • Two bells included with the set of balls.
  • Made from natural, hard wood.
  • Helps keep cats active.
Check Amazon

Our little feline hunters love toys that move or make noise. Why else would they chase a ball of tin foil down the hall?

The DoogCat Ball Track has three levels of ball tracks for your kitten or playful cat to enjoy. The balls on this track are small enough for kittens to play with easily, but shouldn’t come out by accident while they play.

Made from solid wood, the DoogCat Ball Track is more stable than others, and won’t skitter across the floor at the slightest tap. We love the solid wood design and that gives the DoogCat Ball Track our vote for the best cat toy in January.

Best for Reptiles: New Age Pet Exoflex Reptile Lounge

Best for Reptiles
New Age Pet ECOFLEX® 36" Mojave Reptile Lounge
  • A lounging space for reptiles.
  • Available in two colors: maple or grey.
  • Sold in three sizes, from small through large.
  • Made from ecoflex, a wood plastic composite.

Without a doubt, reptile terrariums are expensive. In fact, while you can often purchase a juvenile lizard or snake for less than $100, you’ll spend at least four times that amount on setting up an appropriate enclosure. If you want something other than the typical glass terrariums, you’ll spend even more.

Finally, we found an option that’s only a little more expensive than your typical glass terrarium. The New Age Pet Exoflex Reptile Lounge has a screen top and ventilation on the sides. The sides, bottom, and back are made from reclaimed wood fiber and polymer plastic to create a sturdy, water-resistant material. It even has sliding glass doors on the front, so you don’t look like a giant predator coming in from the top.

This terrarium comes in three sizes, but you have to assemble it. Customers say that they always come with extra fasteners and that it would work as a bioactive enclosure if you first seal it. There were a couple of comments about the edges having small gaps, so have a tube of aquarium sealant handy when you put this one together.

We love the affordable non-glass terrarium which makes maintaining temperature and humidity easier. The New Age Pet Exoflex Reptile Lounge is our pick for the best reptile product at Amazon this January.

Best for Fish: AquaSprouts Garden, Self-Sustaining Desktop Aquarium Aquaponics Kit

Best for Reptiles
VIVOSUN 3-Gallon Aquaponic Fish Tank
  • A fish tank focused on symbiosis, with fish, vegetables, and microbes working together to create an ecosystem.
  • Comes equipped with a siphon oxygen supply.
  • Includes a thermostat.
  • Self-cleaning functionality.

Here’s something different – transform your 10-gallon fish tank into an aquaponics garden. Hydroponic gardening becomes more popular every day as people decide to try to grow their own food inside. Yet, what if you still want at least a small pet?

This kit comes with nearly everything you need to add a garden to your aquarium. Set up several of these and you can have an entire herb garden and school of fish to watch. Aquaponics isn’t for beginners and maintaining a tank like this takes a fair amount of work to set up and maintain. Fortunately, customers say that this set is very low maintenance once everything is balanced.

The Aquasprouts Garden is our pick for the best fish product on Amazon this January for its creative use of existing fish tanks.

Best for Birds: Luonfels Bird Platform

Best for Birds
Luonfels Bird Platform Perch Playground
  • A perch for birds.
  • Offers enough space for two to three birds.
  • Made 100% from natural wood.
  • Easy to assemble and install.
Check Amazon

Our winged, feathered friends ironically love climbing on things. Perches, branches, and swings give them things to play on and make their cages look great.

It is made from fruit wood with no toxic paint or pigments used in the processing. There are four small platforms suitable for smallish birds like cockatiels, and it attaches directly to the side of their cage.

We love the natural look of this platform and the Luonfels Bird Platform is our pick for the best product for birds on Amazon this January.

Best for Small Animals: Guinea Pig Foraging Toys, 6 in 1

Best for Small Animals
Guinea Pig Foraging Toys, 6 in 1 Hamsters Wooden Interactive Enrichment Toys
  • A puzzle game for small animals.
  • Reduces boredom in hamsters and the like by offering physical and mental stimulation.
  • Made of natural wood, with no glue.
Check Amazon

We love puzzle games for our pets. They have fun finding the treats, and we enjoy watching them figure it out.

Even little pets love to use their minds and we found a great toy. Rats and guinea pigs can spin, slide, and open compartments with treats hidden inside. The Guinea Pig Foraging Toy is made out of natural wood without any dyes or paints.

One complaint is that the lift off lid isn’t connected, making it easy to lose. The rope handle on that lid is a tempting chew, but otherwise, it’s a fantastic toy. The Guinea Pig Foraging Toy is a great activity center for your littles and our pick for the best small animal product this January.

Best for Ponies: 1200D Waterproof Pony Turnout Blanket

Best for Ponies
1200D Waterproof Pony Turnout Blanket Black / 50"
  • A turnout blanket for horses in the winter.
  • Available in two colors: black and turquoise.
  • Sold in a range of seven sizes, from 50 inches to 62 inches.
Check Chewy

What better way to let your horse enjoy the snow than with a warm blanket? Turnout blankets are a must for horses that don’t like the cold.

This blanket is cut for smaller horses, like ponies and foals of larger breeds. It’s water-resistant and is insulated with 300G fiber fill. There are double buckles on the front, no center seam, and removable elastic leg straps.

The 1200D Waterproof Pony Turnout Blanket is our pick for the best horse product in January. It’s well-made and a great blanket for the price. The seller provides excellent measuring instructions so that you can get the right fit for your pony.
