The Month of April: Prevent Lyme Disease in Dogs Month 

lyme disease prevention aprilIt’s the beginning of the month, a great time to remind pet owners that even though we’re dealing with COVID-19 and shelter-in-place executive orders, fleas, ticks, and mosquitos have no idea and are still looking for lunch. Remind them to administer them, and if they’re running low on supplies, that they can order their preventatives through your online pharmacy or call ahead for a curbside pickup. 

Suggested Post: The world may be dealing with COVID-19, but fleas, ticks, and mosquitos have no idea and are still looking for lunch. Don’t forget to give your pet their monthly dose of preventatives, and if you need a refill, please call our clinic to set up curbside pickup, or order via our online pharmacy for contactless delivery. 

April 7: World Health Day  

World Health Day is an opportunity to remind or educate pet owners about what you are doing to ensure the safety of clients, pets, and your team during the Coronavirus pandemic.  

Suggested Posts: Share a photo of a team member walking a pet into the clinic from a curbside drop-off or of smiling faces behind washable masks that were either made by a team member or donated to the clinic. You can also remind clients of your updated operating procedures when dropping pets off or picking up food or prescriptions, or what types of appointments you are seeing during shelter-in-place executive orders.

While this Easter is sure to be different than past Easter’s, it’s one that may still present dangers to pets. Remind pet owners of foods that cannot be shared with their pets, along with the reminder that lilies are not pet friendly. 

Suggested Post: Happy Easter, everyone! May you have time to celebrate the day with family and friends (from a safe distance or virtually). Don’t forget, if you have beautiful lily’s in your home to keep them up and away from pets!  

April 27: World Veterinary Day

As much as veterinary medicine is about animals, there is an equally important human element as well. You could share photos about your team and their pets, behind-the-scenes photos at the clinic, or fun facts about each team member. If you have a large team, share a group photo or group selfie! 

Suggested Post: Happy World Veterinary Day to our friends and colleagues in the veterinary industry. We’re so proud to support so many clients and their beloved pets. Thank you for the wonderful opportunities to do so!
