National Pet ID Week is an opportunity to bring awareness to an incredibly important topic – microchipping pets and keeping the microchip information up-to-date. Remind your social media followers of the service you offer and any success stories you’ve experienced. You can also visit AVMA and HomeAgain for downloadable materials to use in your clinic.

Suggested Post: The thought of losing a pet can be an owner’s worst nightmare. Experience the peace of mind that comes with microchipping your pet. Should the nightmare ever become a reality, ensure your pet is returned as quickly as possible, you’ll be grateful to have had them microchipped!

This week is National Pet ID Week, and if your pet is already microchipped, we want to remind you to check the chip’s information to make sure it’s up-to-date!


Happy EasterApril 21 – Easter

Wish your followers a happy Easter and remind them of keeping their pets safe by keeping chocolate and candy out of the way.

Piggy-back off National Pet ID Week by reminding dog owners of the importance of microchipping their pet.

National Hairball Awareness DayApril 26 – National Hairball Awareness Day

While many cat owner's may shrug off the occassional hairball, National Hairball Awareness Day is an opportunity to educate followers on the cause, concern, and prevention of hairballs. By sharing, you may encourage owners to seek veterinary treatment for a problem they may have otherwise dismissed.

Suggested Post: As a cat owner, the sound you most dread is the sound of a hairball. While the occasional hairball may not be anything serious, hairballs are not a normal part of a healthy cat’s life. If your furry feline experiences frequent hairballs, we recommend bringing them in for a visit to ensure there isn’t an underlying medical concern causing hairballs.


World Veterinary DayApril 27 – World Veterinary Day

World Veterinary Day is a wonderful day to celebrate everything you! Everyone in a veterinary clinic plays an integral part in a pet owner’s life. You keep their fur-baby safe, healthy, and happy!
