It’s December and 2019 is nearing its end. Take this month to celebrate your patients, clients, and team, sharing the successes throughout the year. Thank your clients for trusting their pet’s care to you, and (with owner permission) reveal happy ending stories of patients who overcame illness or injury. But don’t forget to also take a moment to remember the pets who crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2019. Offer an opportunity for clients to share their photos in the comments of a dedicated post in their memory.

Also, don’t forget to remind pet owners to give their pets their monthly preventatives!

National Pet Day DogNational Pet Day CatApril 11 – National Pet Day

Celebrate your client’s pets on National Pet Day! You can increase engagement on your posts by asking followers to post pictures of their pets, or even host a contest to feature a pet as your Facebook cover photo for the rest of the month.

Suggested Post: Happy National Pet Day! Celebrate your furry friend(s) by posting a photo of them in the comments!


National Pet ID Week CatNational Pet ID Week DogApril 14-20 – National Pet ID Week

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.

Suggested Post: From everyone at our clinic, happy Easter! If the Easter Bunny visited your house and brought treats, remember to keep them out of reach of your pets.

 


Lost Dog Awareness DayApril 23 – Lost Dog Awareness Day

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

Suggested Post: One in three pets will become lost at some point during their life. Don’t let your dog become a part of the statistic. Make your appointment today to bring them in for a microchip appointment!

 


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!

Suggested Post: Happy World Veterinary Day! All over the world, veterinary teams play an integral role in keeping all animals healthy, happy, and safe. From first puppy or kitten visits to supporting you while you say goodbye, late night emergency visits to only seeing you once a year, our veterinary team is there for you and your pet!

It is FINALLY getting hot outside! It is a great time to remind your clients about the dangers of leaving their pet in a hot car. Sadly this is a real problem but if we educate pet owners about the deadly consequences we can prevent this. Too many dogs die inside cars every summer.
