MANHATTAN – The Fourth of July is finally here, and with the celebration comes fireworks, barbecues and outdoor fun for all; including our furry, four-legged friends. The Kansas Department of Agriculture's Division of Animal Health cares for companion animals as much as people do.

Do you have personal issues? Do you want to seem intelligent, well informed and on-top-of-it-all without having to bother to put in any effort or time to see whether your assertions are accurate?
