PET VALU U.S. EDITION in this issue T ime to open up the windows and get outside! As a pet parent, I love when the temperature starts to change and Lucy and I can go from "walking with a purpose" to enjoying the outdoors again. Nice weather means I can start brushing Lucy outside again, keeping all of that loose hair out of the house. Every spring I also make a point to take her to a groomer for a thorough bath and brush to get rid of her undercoat (P.18). Bathing her myself is quite a big job in the spring as there isn't a puddle she doesn't like. Spring is also the the time of year I make sure we are stocked up on all my pet essentials including a gentle shampoo, a heavy duty skunk shampoo and flea & tick prevention products (P.16). Prevention is key to having a healthy spring, from flea products, to weight management (P. 10) to planting a pet safe garden (P.14). Learn all of our tips and tricks to having a safe and healthy spring for your family – pets included. 3 › Fun New Products In-Store ➜ 4 › Meet Raj Our favourite tree frog 5 › We are Pet Experts Learn about UC Davis and our Pet Expert Program 6 › War Dogs You helped raise $50,000! 7 › Choosing to Spay & Neuter Pros and Cons to help with your choice 8 › Behind the Scenes Meet Yara & Viola, our Cover Models 9 › Pet Parents Apps Some Must-Have Pet Friendly Apps 10 › Feeding Enough?
