New Research On Rabies
New research on rabies done at KSU could change the way we think about rabies and prompt more people to keep up with their pet's rabies shots. If a pet is exposed to rabies and is up to date on boosters, they just need another booster and they'll be fine. But pets that are not up to date, end up in quarantine at the vets for 6 months to make sure they don't come down with the disease.

In Dog We Trust
In Dog We TrustThe rug in the entranceway to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office is forest green with the sheriff's gold badge on it. Where it's supposed to say "In God We Trust" it says "In Dog We Trust." Hundreds of people have walked on the rug without noticing. A deputy finally spotted it the other day. The Sheriff's Department now plans to auction off the rug with the proceeds going to a local animal rescue group.
