ROLLING MEADOWS, ILLINOIS--(Marketwire - Oct. 8, 2010) - Pethealth Inc. (TSX:PTZ) - What do a goblin-headed greyhound, a Pekingese pirate, a chicken kitty, and a "grape" Dane have in common? They've all entered The Petango Store's "Howl-o-ween 'n Win" pet photo contest.

The online pet meds store is looking for fun photos of 'lil critters in costumes as part of its Halloween contest, where pet lovers can win weekly prizes and a chance to win a new iPhone 4. 

Entrants can submit their funniest, ghouliest photos on Petango's Facebook Fan Page and share it with friends and other fans. The more Petango Facebook fans "Like" a photo, the more "Likelihood" it has of winning. 

The grand prize winner will be able to take great pet photos in the future with their new iPhone 4, which will come with Petango's new "Find a Pet" iPhone application pre-installed. The app helps to promote pet adoption by allowing users to search for adoptable pets in their area.
