The American Humane Society estimates over 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen in the US every year. The busiest day for animal shelters across the US? July 5 – the day after a night of fireworks and loud noises.
Remind pet owners of how important microchipping their pet (and keeping the information current) is to the safety of their family member, especially during National Lost Pet Prevention Month.
Suggested Post: One in three pets will become lost at some point during their life, but high-tech protection can help prevent heartbreak. Ensure your pet is microchipped AND that their information is up to date. With over 10 million dogs and cats lost or stolen every year in the US, a microchip is your best chance at reuniting with them in the event something happens.
If you have questions about microchipping your pet, including health questions, how to update your information, or to set up an appointment, give us a call!
Wish your followers a happy and safe 4th of July and share tips on how to keep their pets safe during fireworks.

All-American Pet Photo Day offers a unique and fun opportunity to engage with your followers. Share the social media post below and ask for followers to comment with photos of their pets celebrating America! Bonus suggestion: Make it a game and incorporate a giveaway or prize. Randomly select a comment (or two) to ‘win’ the spot of your clinic’s Facebook page cover for the rest of July. You can also give away toys or treats that the winner(s) must visit the clinic to pick up. When they do, take a photo with them (or their pet) and post that on social media, too!
Suggested Post: Happy All-American Pet Photo Day! We want to see your pets – comment below with photos of your fur-babies celebrating America.
Just like it’s important to have a fire escape plan for humans, it’s important to have a safety plan for pets, too. Encourage your followers to consider their escape plans for all members of their family today.
Suggested Post: The National Fire Protection Association estimates that nearly 1,000 home fires each year are accidentally started by pets. Keep you AND your pets safe by extinguishing open flames and even removing stove knobs (or cover them) before leaving the house. You can also invest in flameless candles, removing the risk of your pet accidentally knocking one over.
Practice your family’s fire escape plan with pets regularly so that, should an emergency arise, everyone is ready.
