The hot days of summer are here again, and this edition of Companions is full of ideas for getting out and about in the sunshine with your pets.

Did you know – people in developed countries spend 90% of their time indoors? Our guest author reveals the health benefits of getting out in the fresh air and sunlight – for you and your furry friends.

If you’re planning a summer getaway, there are top tips for travelling with pets and fantastic ideas for pet-friendly days out. If you’re staying at home, keep cool with our handy guide to beating the heat.

We treat hundreds of poorly pets suffering from preventable illnesses every year. Our feature shows the importance of vaccinations to help our precious pets stay healthy and happy.

This edition also includes lots of real-life stories about the people who keep PDSA going – our vets and volunteers. Read about a day in the life of a volunteer – our new Volunteer of the Year 2016.

Happy reading – and thank you, once again, for your continuing generosity.
