2022’s 30 Top Hashtags for Aussie Vets | Facebook & Instagram

Top hashtags for vets

The most popular hashtags for vets in Australia are, unsurprisingly, about animals. But, to see measurable results, you can read the list of our top 30 hashtags for both Instagram and Facebook for vet clinics, and our follow-up step-by-step guide to learn how to use them. To boost your veterinary marketing plan, choose your favourite hashtags and copy and past them to get started.


Are hashtags worth still worth it?

Hashtagging is a trend that’s here to stay. That’s probably because they’re the best tool on social media to:

  • Boost reach and increase views

  • Make the most of a trending topic

  • Promote vet clinic events

  • Reach specific target markets around your veterinary centre

But, hashtags can have another set of teeth if you use them the wrong way. Read “Should Your Vet Clinic Still be Using Hashtags This Year?” To learn some tips on:

  • Avoiding spam hashtags

  • Using your location

  • Watching trends

There are some great guides out there from companies like Hootsuite and even Instagram, but they aren’t built for vets. Hashtags that are relevant to your industry are always better. Read our top 30 hashtags for Australian veterinary surgeries on Instagram and Facebook below.


30 Top hashtags for vets in Australia and tips to use them

Hashtag trends are always changing on social media, but in the veterinary marketing world, some are always going to be popular.

The trouble with using the top hashtags is that everyone else is too. You’ve put time and effort into your post, if you use a hashtag that’s too common, it could get lost in a sea of competing for veterinary surgery posts.

Best ways for vets to use hashtags on Instagram and Facebook

Personalise your hashtags

You can personalise your hashtags so that your clients can find you easier online. Try hashtagging your clinic’s name and adding it to each of your posts.

Encourage clients to join you

Encourage your clients to share hashtags with your veterinary surgery or clinic. User-generated content is a great way to boost your vet’s notoriety and an even better way to get closer with your clients.

How many hashtags should you use on your vet’s post?

Vets can include up to 30 hashtags on an Instagram post and up to 10 hashtags on a story. If you try to add more, you won’t be able to publish the post. 

But, sometimes, less is more. At Vet Marketing Services, we don’t recommend using any more than 10 and would recommend keeping it even lower. Three to five hashtags per post for your vet clinic would be best- so choose your hashtags carefully!
