BEST FOR CAT PARENTS: Basepaws Breed + Health DNA Test — Save $40 and get a free dental test with code CATMONTH
Got a pandemic puppy or a quarantine cat? You’re not alone. Tons of people are adopting new pets — and figuring out that the cost of buying toys, beds, treats, and pet tech adds up quickly. To keep you from spending your entire paycheck on your four-legged friend, we’ll be compiling a list of the best pet deals weekly so you can be the best pet parent ever — even if you’re on a budget.
OUR TOP PICK: Whistle Pet GPS trackers — 25% off all devices with code BRAND25
In honor of Adopt a Shelter Dog Month (and just in time for early holiday shopping), Whistle is offering 25% off all its smart devices when you bundle with a one- or two-year plan. You’d need the one- or two-year plan anyway to use any of the GPS location tracking that the devices offer, so this is a great deal to get a discount on both the device and the plan. Choose from the Whistle Fit, Whistle Go Explore, or Whistle Switch, depending on your pup’s needs.

BEST DOG DNA KIT DEAL: Wisdom Panel Premium DNA Kit — $125.99 (save $34 with code ADOPTDOG34)
If you’re tired of just saying that your dog is a mutt, the Wisdom Panel Premium will give you the exact breakdown of your pooch’s breed — down to single percentages. Wisdom Panel tests across a huge variety of dog breeds, so even if your dog is a super rare international breed, you’ll still be able to find out their lineage. (It’s also one of our top picks for the best doggie DNA tests on the market.)
The Wisdom Panel Premium kit comes with handy health testing too, and will check your dog’s vision, weight, mobility, any potential drug sensitivities, and more. It’s basically the protective pet parent’s dream. If you buy from Wisdom Panel, use code ADOPTDOG34 to save $34 and donate a dollar to shelter dogs in honor of Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. (If you’d rather save that dollar, the same test is on sale at Amazon for $124.99.)

BEST FOR CAT PARENTS: Basepaws Breed + Health DNA Test — $89 (save $40 and get a free dental test with code CATMONTH)
Ahead of National Cat Day on Oct. 29, Basepaws is offering $40 off their cat DNA test and throwing in a free dental health kit for good measure. You’ll be able to test your feline friend across four main breed groups, 21 individual breeds, and get a wild cat index — which lets you see how similar your pet’s DNA is to a lion, tiger, cheetah, and more. You’ll also be able to screen for 16 different genetic diseases and mutations, though it’s no substitute for consulting with a vet.
If you prefer to buy from Amazon, you can still score $30 off the Basepaws kit when you apply the on-page coupon. However, you won’t receive the free dental health kit if you opt to buy from Amazon.
