Without the former, the article will not be accepted.
The following are optional:
- Photos which include pets and the points that you are making in your article. If you do not supply any pictures, photos will be supplied within your article. Horizontal photo format is preferred.
Please supply photos separately from the article, although you may indicate where you would like them placed within the article.
A photo of yourself may be included, if desired.

- Sign up to Pet Problems Solved to be notified of your article publication.
Please submit all articles to firstname.lastname@example.org
*1. Please note that submission of an article does not equal automatic publication. Often articles will need to be revised by yourself or editors or, if deemed inappropriate, will not be published at all.
Many submissions are received and not all are accepted. You may not hear for a week and your article may not be published for several weeks. Priority may be given to sponsored articles.
Once published your article will be shared on social media and in member emails. Please sign up to receive emails (on right) or join us on social networks.
*2. Once published, your article may be quoted in other publications. While effort will be made to notify you, this may not always be possible. Dr Jo Righetti reserves the right to include your article in future publications e.g. digital pet ebooks.
- 2. Articles which are favoured include:
- Articles that are unique. We do not repeat topics. Check the website prior to submitting an article.
- Articles which take the premise that pets are good for us, that life is better with pets.
- Articles that solve a problem (this is pet problems solved).
- Articles that give hints, tips and suggestions to improve life with pets
- Articles that are contemporary or fun-filled
3. Articles which are not favoured include:
- Expert articles (veterinary, health or behaviour) unless you are an expert e.g. vet. Medical advice will not be published without inclusion of veterinary advice.
- Infographics (very few infographics are accepted)
- An article that has been published elsewhere.
- Those with links to other websites (one link to your own site is acceptable in your bio).
- Articles that are overt advertising material. (If you wish to submit a sponsored post, there is a charge for this. Please see sponsorship details.)
- Articles with poor grammar or English. Have someone read your article prior to submission.
4. Charges for articles
No charges are made for publication of blog posts. Nor is there any payment given.
You must not include links within the body of your article, otherwise charges will apply. Please see sponsorship for more details. One link from your short bio is acceptable and does not incur any fee.
