COVID-19 UPDATE

October29th, 0020

Dear GMAH clients and friends,

We first want to say thank you for all of your support and patience.  We are humbled beyond words to have such amazing clients and we wanted to update you all on how GMAH is providing veterinary care during this time. We are continuing curbside service for the foreseeable future. The health and safety of our team and community is our top priority. This decision was not made lightly and we took all factors into consideration. Due to size of our exam rooms and the building being a little more “vintage”, we feel we cannot adhere to the physical distancing guidelines. It saddens us to not be able to see you all face to face, we certainly miss you and look forward to when we can safely allow people back in each of our locations.

We have been experiencing an increased need for patient appointments and have been booking out several weeks, if not longer. The entire veterinary industry is experiencing this same demand for care. We are doing everything we can to accommodate our patients as quickly as possible.

Your trust in us to care for your pets while you wait outside has been one of the most humbling experiences for our team. We are so fortunate to have such wonderful clients. Thank you for the words and gestures of encouragement and support, it means the world to us. We miss you all and hope everyone stays healthy and safe.

 With much appreciation,

Green Mountain Animal Hospital
