Heatwave UK is here, and we're so ready for it. But the question is: are your pets? We love them (sometimes a little too much, even when they chew our favourite shoes), but they can't tell us when they're too hot. Which is why we've rounded up these pet cooling buys, so you can enjoy your weekend in the garden worry-free, knowing your pet is dealing with the heat just fine.

From cooling pads to a doggie paddling pool (yes, that's a thing, as you can see), a cage fan for rabbits and a pet camera if you've a busy weekend planned and need to leave the pooch at home, there's something for all types of owners on all types of budgets.
