DR. SARAH URBAN, DVM,
INTEGRATIVE VETERINARIAN at GODFREY'S
Every Wednesday in 2022, starting in February!
(Her January 2022 appointments are booked)
Downstairs, in Godfrey's retail building
AVAILABLE APPOINTMENTS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
Call us for your appointment with her NOW! 610-777-5755
We expect that we will have a waiting list.
As Dr. Urban states: She wants all clients to feel enabled and empowered in their decisions that they make for their animal companions.
Dr. Urban’s business, Enabled Integrative Veterinary Services, is an integrative MOBILE veterinary practice that brings services right to your doorstep.
So this month the "doorstep" is ours!
Many of you have seen Dr. Urban for your small animal health needs at the locations where she practiced in the past. Barb and Pat started seeing her back in Jan. 2018 when she was located over an hour away, but later in 2019 they lost track of her due to her changes in her practice locations.
Integrative veterinary care offers the best in care for companion animals we share our lives with! At least, that's our opinion. But don't take our word for it; set up your own appointment with her to experience an integrative veterinary appointment with her and decide for yourself.

INFORMATION FROM GLENN: “Since time slots do not allow time for de-matting dogs, it is very important that dogs are free of mats. It would not be fair nor in your dogs best interest for me to wash them with mats. It would only make things worse and I will not do that to any of my 4 legged friends. Also, I prefer to blow dry your dog totally dry. This helps to make them look and feel their best. It also keeps them from getting mats. Blowing a large dog like can take over 1 hour and the bath is 20 minutes.”
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, CALL GLENN AT 540-319-0052. THE BEST DAYS TO CALL HIM ARE FRIDAY, SATURDAY OR SUNDAY.
COST: $40, PAYMENT VIA CHECK OR CASH.
TOWELS: Please bring your own towels. Feel free to also bring any favorite brushes or combs you might have.

Keystone Pet Enhanced Therapy Services (KPETS), a 501C-3 organization originating in Lancaster, PA, is
expanding their volunteer canine therapy services program by bringing it to Berks County and Godfrey's is hosting them! This is a statement that defines their mission: "Promoting the Healing and Rehabilitation Benefits of the Animal/Human Bond." Sounds pretty powerful to me!
We held the first KPETS classes for Berks County here in April and May 2012. Charlie and Lake, Barb Emmett's two golden retrievers, have gone through the KPETS program and are now registered KPETS therapy dogs, so ask her about the program if you are interested.
Charlie and Lake, ready for a KPETS visit!
First Step: Attend KPETS ORIENTATION session This is a "People Only" session (no dogs).
An application fee of $35 per handler is charged to cover administrative costs, including handouts and other expenses. However, after completing the registration process, this fee is applied to the current year’s dues.
The orientation session is approximately three hours long and provides information about KPETS’ mission, services, what the expectations are for the pet and handlers, and what to expect when you go on visits. Also provided is information about the many opportunities available and how you and your dog can get involved.
Second Step: Attend KPETS Group Evaluation session This session is to assess your dog for future therapy visits. Basic obedience is needed. Socialization, response to loud noises, interaction with strangers, rough petting, reactions to other dogs, etc. will all be assessed. Prerequisite: attendance at a KETS Orientation session. The Group Evaluation is held in our Canine Learning Center, the separate building on the left, when going up to the shop entrance.
Third Step: Two separate on-site evaluations
On-site evaluations are scheduled directly with each evaluator for convenience.
This will give you some “on-the-job” training as well as allow the KPETS evaluator see how your dog handles actual real life situations. Pat Emmett, Training Manager and Certified Dog Trainer at Godfrey's, is a KPETS on-site evaluator. He can be contacted at email@example.com.
Their volunteer opportunities for you and your dog include:
Have questions or want to sign up? Email KPETS at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 888-68-KPETS (888-685-7387) or
Canine Fitness and Core Conditioning in our Canine Gym:
Classes and private one-on-one sessions are scheduled throughout the year in our
Canine Wellness and Conditioning Center.
Think your dog might have the right stuff to be a therapy dog but need to work on a few things first?
Attend this class at Godfrey's!
Start Date: Classes are running throughout the year on a regular basis. Contact Pat Emmett at email@example.com to sign up for this class.
Time: As needed.
Instructor: Pat Emmett, KPA Certified Instructor, KPETS Group Evaluation Leader and KPETS On-Site Evaluator
Class Description: In this class, we will work on the behaviors needed to successfully complete the KPETS assessment for dog and handler. Your dog should have received some basic manners and behaviors in order to take the class. Those would include: sit, down, stay, leave it, and wait for 30 seconds at the end of the leash. Also, good walking skills by handler and dog are imperative in order to succeed.
Cost: $100 $10 is donated to KPETS.
Please note: Completion of this class does not guarantee that you and your dog will pass the evaluation. In addition, Pat will not be able to evaluate your dog in the "Group Evaluation" step towards KPETS certification since he will be involved in your dog's training via this class.
