Pet of the Week Rules


Keep it clean! This is a child-friendly site. Also, photos must be smaller than 40KB or 72dpi


petMD.com reserves the right to:

  • edit captions for length and content
  • reject photos for content or photo quality
  • use photos for marketing and editorial purposes without prior consent of the individual 

Every Monday, the petMD team will upload our favorite photos submitted throughout the previous week. It will then be up to our fans to rate each photo. The pet that receives the highest total rating (# of votes multiplied by average rating) as of 9:30 AM EST each Monday morning will be featured as our petMD Pet of the Week. We’ll then post the winners that day, no later than 5:00 PM EST on Monday.


The winning pet’s photo will grace our Facebook page for an entire week! Just think…your pet could be our next STAR!
