Show us your pets' pearly whites! We're looking for photos of your pets' beautiful teeth — and we mean any kind of pets: dogs, cats, horses, bunnies, ferrets, goats, cows ... fuzzy, furred or finned, you name it. After all, pets need dental care, too. View and submit photos on our Purrfect Pets Veterinary Clinic page during the month of February and don't forget to share with friends.
