You might consider the finest pet cameras to be nothing more than a convenient way to keep an eye on your dog or cat from afar. In fact, the more advanced models include features such as two-way communication, laser pointers for play, and even treat dispensers, which can be used to provide a little incentive for good behavior. 

There are a few things to think about. Resolution is important, as it is with any camera - you won't need 4K 60p, but Full HD 1080p will make a noticeable difference, especially if you want to share some of the adorable moments captured by your camera on social media. With all of this in mind, we've narrowed it down to what we believe are the best pet cameras currently available.
