Wow — who can believe it is almost November! November is the month of thankfulness and there is plenty to be thankful for, despite all that COVID-19 has brought. There are also plenty of observances to notify followers of, calls to action to get those clients booking appointments, and fun ways to engage with followers!
Below are additional suggested social media posts for veterinary clinics this month. To use the posts on your page, copy and paste the text into your post. Complimentary graphics are included in the zip file to the right.
National Pet Cancer Awareness Month
Cancer. Just the word alone can cause a sense of dread and unease. Cancer is scary, but we all realize that clients who do not know or choose to ignore the signs and symptoms have a way less chance at a good outcome. Remind them that establishing regular wellness exams will help you as the veterinarian pick up on any changes, no matter how small!
Suggested Post: Our beloved pets are not immune when it comes to cancer. Pets get cancer at about the same rate as humans, and like cancer in people, the cause of cancers in pets is not fully known. Older pets are more likely to develop cancer, and regular veterinary exams can help with early detection. November is Pet Cancer Awareness month and a great reminder that establishing regular wellness exams with us will help us pick up on any abnormalities should they arise.
National Pet Diabetes Month
Like National Pet Cancer Awareness Month, National Pet Diabetes Month is a great way to remind clients that early detection will make the disease much more manageable.
Suggested Post: Diabetes is an ailment that affects pets in the same way it affects people. Pets with diabetes can and do live happy and healthy lives with proper care and treatment. Early detection of diabetes will not only bring more comfort to you and your pet but will also be much more manageable. We are here to help!
November 1-7: National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week
It is time to thank those shelters and rescues for all that they do! If you have a special connection with a rescue or shelter, be sure to feature some of their adoptable pets and mention any specials you run for newly adopted or rescued pets!
Suggested Post: Happy National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation week! If your pet was a rescue or shelter animal, share their story with us! Do not forget to thank the shelter or rescue that brought you and your best friend together!
November 7: National Canine Lymphoma Awareness Day
Explain Canine Lymphoma in a way your followers will best understand. Because of the high success rate in treating canine lymphoma, if you have patients battling or beat it, reach out to their owners to see if you can share their story!
Suggested Post: Lymphoma is a blanket term used to describe a group of cancers that stem from the lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell that helps the immune system fight off infections. These special white blood cells are most highly concentrated in the lymph nodes, the spleen, and bone marrow and are often where most lymphoma cancers are found. Keeping up with regular veterinary exams can help establish a good healthy baseline for your pet and help point us in the right direction if something changes.
November 11: Veterans Day
Be sure to thank the Veterans, including Military Working Dogs!
Suggested Post: Happy Veterans Day! We are extending our sincerest gratitude to the brave women, men, and military working dogs who have served.
Take some time to post this helpful reminder about common toxic foods and other dangers lurking on the thanksgiving table.
Plus, do not forget to provide an update on your holiday operating hours! Be sure to include emergency contacts for clients to use should something arise during a time when your office is closed.
November 26: Thanksgiving
It is Turkey day! Let your clients know you are thankful for them!
Suggested Post: Happy Thanksgiving! Do you know what we are thankful for? We are thankful for all our wonderful clients and their amazing pets! We hope that you have a fantastic turkey day full of delicious foods, wonderful company, and thankful hearts.
