New Products for Health and Wellness
Watching that Canine Waistline
Helping our dogs maintain a healthy weight is one of the most important lifestyle choices we can make for them. In a few months, we'll be into our cold winter season. Brrrrr! Our dogs, like humans, tend to put on more weight at this time of the year as we all get more sedentary.
If you have concerns about your dog's weight and the food you're feeding, come talk with us. We have summarized key ingredient lists and measures like calorie count, protein, fat, etc. for each food we stock. This information helps us help you with whatever nutrition issue your dog may need to focus on.
We now have two new products to help with canine weight issues that are sound in their formulation and use of high quality ingredients :
"Weight Loss Supplement" by Fruitables USDA Organic
Ultra low calorie, high-fiber blend (only 17 calories per 1/4 cup)
Improves feeling of fullness in the belly
Clinically proven in University Trials (Texas A&M University)
The super blend recipe contains harvest fresh pumpkin, oatmeal and inulin to create a hunger-fighting balance of fiber, combined with nutrient dense fruits & vegetables to provide a nutrient boost during weight loss.
Fromm Family Foods Gold Line: "Weight Management"
A desirable approach to weight management. Made with a special blend of lean turkey liver, duck, chicken, lamb, whole eggs and real Wisconsin cheese, this lean 10% fat food helps control calorie intake without sacrificing other valuable nutrients, helping to manage weight and keep dogs healthy. In addition, Gold recipes are enhanced with probiotics to aid digestion and salmon oil for coat health.
Keeping your dog's immune system strong is important for overall good health. They are exposed to the same environmental stressors that we are exposed to, like chemicals and air and water-born pollutants. Bacterial and viral infections attack and weaken the immune system, which can lead to all kinds of problems, including allergies, skin irritations, gastrointestinal issues, and more.
Vaccinations, stress, injuries, chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery all can affect our dog's general health and well-being. Some dogs just can't seem to stay completely healthy. If that's your dog, start thinking seriously about strengthening the immune system naturally.
Luckily more is known now about ways to naturally boost the immune system of our dogs. Feeding high quality foods is one of the most important ways to keep your dog healthy. We always start the discussion here at Godfrey's with nutrition.
When you want and need to do more, look to high quality supplements like these three below, available at Godfrey's. All of these products are terrific for general health and wellness for any dog as a part of preventative care and adjunctive therapy for dogs recovering from cancer, sickness or trauma.
"Vital Vities" by Deserving Pets
Designed by the highly highly acclaimed holistic and integrative veterinarian, Dr. Deva Khalsa, VITAL VITIES contain human quality disease-fighting phytonutrients from super-foods in addition to generous portions of complete, balanced vitamins and minerals to promote health in dogs and cats.

Help Us Spread the Word - Let 'Em Know
"Dog is Family"
There's a difference in attitude and lifestyle when dog is truly considered family. We don't abandon them in old age...we never abandon them. We want them with us every day and there for all times in our daily lives. We want to do the best we can do for them, each day and in every way.
Let our community around town know how you feel. Spread the word; there's is a "DIF"ference when dogs are family. At Godfrey's, we reflect that sentiment and hope you share it with us.
Our stickers sell for $1.99. $1 from each sale is donated to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, the nation's largest sanctuary for abused and neglected animals, where animals can live out their lives in peace and with love.
