Even your furry friends need the latest tech

The global market for pet care products is estimated to grow from $225bn (£162bn) in 2019 to $358.62bn (£259.9bn) by 2027, according to a report by Fior Markets.

It’s not just food, treats and toys that cat and dog owners are buying, but also gizmos and tech. Here we take a look at five of the best pet gadgets on the market.
