June Calendar

Monthly Preventative Reminder (June 1st): As schools let out for summer and outdoor activities increase, remind your clients about the importance of protecting their pets from fleas, ticks, and mosquitos. Emphasize the risks associated with spending more time outdoors and offer tips on preventative measures.

National Hug Your Cat Day (June 4th): Engage with your cat-owning clients by encouraging them to share selfies of themselves snuggling their feline friends. Remind clients that while not all feline friends enjoy a snuggle-sesh, they can give their beloved cats their own custom version of a hug like extra treat or two, or some good quality chin scritchies!

Pet Appreciation Week (June 4th - June 10th): Dedicate this week to showcasing essential elements of successful veterinary social media. Educate your audience with informative posts, entertain them with in-clinic photos of beloved pets, and engage them by asking how they show appreciation to their pets!





National Best Friends Day (June 8th): Celebrate the special bond between pets and their best friends. Encourage clients to share heartwarming photos of their pets with their closest companions, whether humans, furry buddies, or even a beloved stuffed toy.




World Pet Memorial Day (June 13th): Create a compassionate space for pet owners to remember and honor their beloved companions who have crossed the rainbow bridge. Craft a thoughtful message and invite clients to share stories and photos, fostering healing and community support.





 Father's Day (June 18th): Pay tribute to all the amazing dads and father figures out there!




Take Your Cat to Work Day (June 19th): If you have a clinic cat, seize the opportunity to highlight their contributions to the clinic. Describe their "on-the-job" duties, such as official treat tester, client greeter, or seat warmer, and share photos of them in action.

Summer & National Selfie Day (June 21st): Celebrate the start of summer and National Selfie Day together. Encourage clients to share their favorite selfies with their pets and ask what their furry friends are most excited about this summer.

National Hydration Day (June 23rd): Provide valuable information on keeping pets hydrated during the hot months ahead. Share tips for increasing hydration, guidelines on monitoring water intake, and the importance of staying hydrated for pet health.

Cat World Domination Day (June 24th): Playfully engage your audience by asking what laws they think would be in place if cats ruled the world. Encourage clients to share their humorous and creative responses.

National Social Media Day (June 30th): Celebrate the impact of social media on communication and interaction. Engage your audience by seeking their input on what they enjoy seeing on your clinic's social media. Express gratitude to your clients for their support, comments, shares, and reviews, emphasizing the importance of their online presence for promoting an independently-run vet clinic.

There are lots of monthly observances to sprinkle into your calendar! Here are some awesome ideas:



    Adopt-A-Cat Month and Social PETworking Month: These two observances can be seamlessly tied together. Social PETworking utilizes social media platforms to connect pets in need with loving homes.        Collaborate with a local shelter or rescue organization to help promote their available cats during Adopt-A-Cat Month. It's the perfect opportunity to showcase the adorable feline friends seeking their forever families!





National Microchipping Month: While microchips are crucial year-round, June provides an excellent opportunity to emphasize their importance. Since you've already covered National Chip Your Pet Month last month, you can further elaborate on the topic or reshare the valuable information you shared in May. Highlight the benefits of microchipping and how it helps reunite lost pets with their owners.

National Pet Preparedness Month: Take this chance to educate pet owners on the essential steps they need to take to prepare for potential emergencies. Tailor your content to the specific challenges your area may face, such as tornadoes, hurricanes, or earthquakes. Share tips on creating emergency kits, evacuation plans, and keeping pets safe during disasters.

Summer Safety Considerations: As the summer season kicks off, pet owners need to be aware of various safety considerations. Create a comprehensive blog post that covers a range of topics, such as swim safety, hot pavement precautions, and protecting pets from heatstroke. Compile all the necessary information in one place, and use it as a resource for posting on these specific topics throughout the summer.

By incorporating these observances into your content calendar, you'll provide valuable insights, foster engagement, and establish your clinic as a trusted source of information for pet owners!
