The Kansas Animal Health Department was established in 1969 by consolidating the Livestock Sanitary Commission and the State Brand Commission. The four divisions of the Department are: administration, disease control, animal facilities inspection and brands. Tasks include, eradicating infectious livestock diseases in Kansas, animal facilities inspection for companion animals, brand registration and Emergency Management also known as Kansas Homeland Defense.

After 127 years as a stand-alone agency, the Kansas Animal Health Department merged with the Kansas Department of Agriculture to become Kansas Department of Agriculture, Division of Animal Health on July 1, 2011. The agency's mission remained unchanged.
