Fill Your July Social Media Calendar With These 6 Posts

A new month means it's time to plan new posts for your social media channels. This month, we've created posts that focus on heartworm disease and summer pet safety. Below are six posts to fill your content calendar and tips for how to share them.

Summer means mosquitoes, and infected mosquitoes can lead to heartworm disease. While your clients may have heard of heartworm disease, do they know what puts their pets at risk? Educate them on your social channels.

Heartworm-infected pets can now be found across the United States. Do you have statistics on heartworm disease in your county or state? Consider sharing them with your clients to help them understand the risk in your area.

Heartworm disease affects cats, too.

Help your clients understand that heartworm disease is a risk to their cats — even indoor ones! The myth that there is no treatment for heartworm disease in cats may help you make the case for preventives. Sharing information about vector-borne diseases on your social media channels will also help debunk such myths.
