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.
July 4 is a time for celebration, whether it's a family get together in the backyard or a trip out of town for some R and R. With all the fun going on, we sometimes forget about the dangers Fourth of July merrymaking can bring.
