It’s time to celebrate pets

National Pet Week(R)National Pet Week® starts today, and it’s one of our favorite weeks of the year. Whether you’re a veterinarian, work in a veterinary clinic or just love animals, it’s a great time to celebrate all of the pets in your life.

If you’d like to join in the fun, why not start by RSVPing for National Pet Week® on Facebook and writing a post on the event page to tell us how you plan to celebrate? You can share pictures of your pets with us there as well – dogs, cats, horses, fish, pocket pets, spiders, whatever… we’d love to see them all.

Another way to celebrate is to watch and share the National Pet Week® video shown below and also available on YouTube. Post it to your social media feeds, or even embed it on your website. It’s got a great message about the many blessings that pets bring to our lives.

Then, head on over to the National Pet Week® website, which has a whole array of ideas for celebrating, along with tools to help make it easy. There are resources for veterinary clinics, materials for teachers to use in classrooms, and links for pet owners to join in the fun by nominating their veterinarian to become this year’s America’s Favorite Veterinarian. There are also downloadable logos and social media images, and for AVMA members we even have ready-to-use social media posts that you can copy and paste for your clinic’s social media feeds all week long.

Don’t forget to follow our social media feeds, too – especially Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and @AVMAvets on Twitter – as we’ll be celebrating National Pet Week® there all week long.

So what are you waiting for? It’s Sunday already – let the celebration begin!

  1. I have always been a fan of all pets. I will have to stop by my local animal medical center and volunteer. I know they are doing something to celebrate this week.
