Between the pet-tastic pages in this issue, we celebrate spring and shake off those winter blues and get outside with our pets. A new season means new trends, so check out our latest collections for cats and dogs for a stylish spring and summer.
Considering travelling with your pet this season? Whether you’re staying put in beautiful Blighty or venturing abroad, we’ve got all the essentials covered in our mini travel guide. And if you’re travelling with your horses, we provide the lowdown on making their journey as comfy as possible. Continuing the outdoor theme, if you love tall trees, wild landscapes and spectacular Scottish skies, check out our tour of the best dog-friendly places in Perthshire.
For peace of mind, our vets answer all your travel-related questions and we also show you how to prevent pet travel sickness. We have more wellbeing wisdom with how to remove a tick successfully, and we haven’t forgotten the little ones either, as you can learn how to share your garden safely with rabbits and guinea pigs. We also guide you through how to create a flourishing garden pond.
TV illusionist Derren Brown speaks of his love for his pet parrot Rasputin on page 24, and if you’re thinking of keeping an indoor bird, we have a beautifully illustrated guide. There’s all this, plus our usual friendly expertise and advice to help you and your pet get the most from your time together.
When bought or picked up in store, My VIP adds colour to the shopping trip. It's a fun, insightful part of the VIP loyalty scheme, which allows readers to get the best treatment and rewards for their pet, as well as raising funds for animal charities. This altruistic side of the magazine is reflected in big star names like Ben Fogle, Bill Bailey, Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan, Pudsey, Kate Humble, Paul O'Grady and now Derren Brown, who were more than happy to be the cover star for such a charitable title. But it is really the cover celeb's pet that's the star!
