Get Social This September With These Ideas for Veterinary Social Media!

September has arrived, and it’s time to embark on another exciting month of engaging content, meaningful connections, and impactful storytelling! As the seasons shift and pet care needs evolve, we’re here to guide and inspire you through every step of your social media journey. Get ready to dive into a world of innovative strategies and actionable insights that will not only captivate your audience but also strengthen the bond between pet parents and their furry companions. Together, we’ll create engaging, informative, and impactful content that not only resonates but also makes a positive difference in the lives of pets and their families!


September 1st is a reminder that these pesky parasites are not going anywhere anytime soon. Time to discuss preventatives and keep those furry friends protected. And don’t forget, it’s also Ginger Cat Appreciation Day! Spice up your posts with fun facts about those charming orange kitties or share heartwarming stories of your ginger patients.


As we soak up the last bit of summer on September 4th for Labor Day, remember to notify clients about your clinic’s hours during the long weekend. Safety tips are essential, covering BBQ precautions, water safety, critter awareness, and safe travel practices!


On National Hug Your Hound Day, September 10th, seize the opportunity to engage your followers by encouraging them to share heartwarming photos of themselves embracing their furry companions – a  delightful addition to your feed!


September 23rd marks the arrival of autumn – it’s the First Day of Fall, y’all! This is a great opportunity to discuss seasonal safety topics and engage your clients by asking what their pets are looking forward to most with the changing season.

On September 28th, raise awareness about the importance of rabies prevention for World Rabies Day. Remind clients that rabies is a present concern and share relevant facts and figures from your state’s health department.

National Dog Week is September 18th-24th and it’s all about our canine companions! Highlight your K9 patients and share dog-related content all week. You could host a doggy photo contest, share interesting dog facts, or provide some lighthearted dog comics.

Cats might be mysterious, but you can help your clients understand their subtle happiness cues as well as highlight all of those awesome ways we can keep our feline friends happy! Celebrate Happy Cat Month and consider involving your clinic cat to share this valuable information.

Though not exclusive to pets, use this month to educate clients on safe and unsafe foods and diets for their furry friends in honor of Food Safety Education Month. Consider hosting a Q&A, or address frequently asked questions about nutrition that pop up during appointments. Chances are if one of your clients has a nutrition or food-related question, another does as well!

Explore different pet insurance options available and provide clients with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions for Pet Insurance Month.

Dive into what it truly means to be a responsible dog owner. Discuss comprehensive care, from dietary and medical needs to overall well-being for Responsible Dog Ownership Month.

September is Animal Pain Awareness Month. Shed light on signs of pet pain and raise awareness about commonly overlooked conditions causing discomfort. Make sure clients know what to look out for when it comes to discomfort and pain in their companion!

Observances are a little few and far between this month… here are some additional ideas to help you fill that content calendar:

When was the last time you introduced your staff? If it’s been a while, consider a meet-the-staff series! Be sure to include info about your team like the types of pets they have at home, their favorite part about working in veterinary medicine, and other fun facts that will help your clients get to know them a little better.

Instead of just snapping photos of patients, try embracing a #SeptemberSelfie vibe and invite staff to take selfies with patients! Clients will love seeing staff treating patients just like they do their own pets.

Take your clients back to school with some pet trivia this September!
