The best pet cameras are a great way to keep an eye on your cat or dog. They allow you to check up on your pets remotely, which can be useful if you have pets that suffer from separation anxiety, or simply young, playful pups that you want to check up on when you leave the house.

Pet cameras come in different shapes and sizes, and they can offer you basic or advanced features depending on how much you spend. The more expensive models come with two-way microphones, accompanying apps, vet advice and can even toss treats at the touch of a button on your smartphone.
