October – Animal Safety & Protection This month (and every month) is a time to recognize safety measures you should take to protect your pet and ensure they are healthy. Check out the below safety tips:
- Be proactive. Keep all your pets up to date on immunizations.
- Pet-proof your home. Remove or secure choking hazards and toxic chemicals. Make your home pet-friendly and safe.
- Identify your animals. Place tags securely on collars and even label collars with your contact information. If you have more uncommon pets, take pictures in the event they get loose.
- In a disaster, have a plan. Who will be responsible for locating each animal in the house? How will you transport them? If it is a fire, human life takes priority. However, place decals on windows and doors with the number of humans and each kind and number of pets residing in the home. Keep them up to date.
- Learn basic first aid. Caring for your animal at home will prevent a minor injury from becoming severe. Always call your veterinarian if you are unsure.
- Know your animal. If your animal’s behavior changes, watch for signs of illness. Is he injured or spent too much time in the heat? Contact your veterinarian before giving human over-the-counter medications.

VaccinationsPets today can live longer, healthier lives than ever before—in part because of vaccines that help protect them from deadly infectious diseases. Over the years, vaccines against dangerous diseases have saved millions of pets and virtually eliminated some fatal diseases that were once common. Unfortunately, many infectious diseases still pose a significant threat to dogs...
Dental CareDespite what many pet owners may believe, “dog breath” is not just a nuisance – it’s a sign of an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacteria. Over time, bacteria leads to plaque and tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth. The result is bad breath, reddened gums, and other common signs of dental disease....

I’m Juanita Griffin and my baby’s name is Kuma. Trish and Tammy referred Kuma to their vet, Dr Kris Faddor at Green Mt Animal Hospital a few years ago. Kuma hates his nails messed with and requires sedation. Dr Faddor takes the time to put Kuma at ease as much as is possible with my Kuma (not exaggerating his dislike at having his nails messed with) and goes above and beyond what is expected to give Kuma exceptional care. Recently Kuma started limping really bad and when I took him to the hospital, they discovered that he had cellulitis and it was severe. Dr Faddor saved Kuma’s life because I didn’t know how serious Kuma’s condition was. Dr. Faddor always gives me choices as to what I can do for my baby and he and his staff have helped me help Kuma way beyond what I believe anyone else ever would.They truly love and care for our animals and allow you to feel confident that your pet is receiving the absolute best care available. They truly have my deepest gratitude.
I moved and needed to find a new vet. I looked at Nextdoor vet recommendations and this was one with quite a few. The office is well decorated. The staff extremely friendly. I was looking for quality that doesn't break the bank and this is it!Teddy says GMAH is cool👍
