    Correct Answer(s)

    B. Poultry flea

These fleas may not be as prevalent or widespread as the cat flea, but they can still cause discomfort and transmit diseases to their hosts.

  • 4. 

    Lice are transmitted by direct or indirect contact via ______.

    • A.

      Humans

    • B.

      Bedding or grooming equipment

    Correct Answer
    B. Bedding or grooming equipment
    Explanation
    Lice can be transmitted through direct contact with an infested person or indirect contact with objects such as bedding or grooming equipment that have been in contact with an infested person. This means that lice can easily spread from person to person through shared items like combs, brushes, hats, or pillows. Therefore, the correct answer is bedding or grooming equipment.

  • 5. 

    Mange can only be transmitted from the bitch to the sucking pups in the first few hours of life.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Mange, a skin disease caused by mites, can indeed be transmitted from the mother dog (bitch) to her newborn puppies. However, this transmission can only occur during the first few hours of the puppies' lives. After this initial period, the risk of transmission decreases significantly. Therefore, the statement that mange can only be transmitted from the bitch to the sucking pups in the first few hours of life is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The presence of these mites in the ear leads to _______ (Select Two)

    • A.

      Excessive scratching

    • B.

      Loss of hearing

    • C.

      Excessive formation of red-brown wax.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Excessive scratching
    C. Excessive formation of red-brown wax.
    Explanation
    The presence of mites in the ear can cause excessive scratching as the mites irritate the ear canal, leading to discomfort and itchiness. Additionally, the mites can also cause excessive formation of red-brown wax as they feed on earwax and multiply, resulting in an overproduction of wax. Loss of hearing is not mentioned as a direct consequence of the presence of mites in the ear.

  • 7. 

    The larval stage of the tick will attach to an animal and feed for fourteen days before dropping to the ground for a period of two years.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false because the larval stage of a tick does not feed for fourteen days before dropping to the ground for two years. Instead, the larval stage of a tick attaches to a host animal, feeds for a few days to a week, and then drops to the ground to molt into the nymph stage. The nymph stage then attaches to another host animal and repeats the feeding process.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The mite’s entire life cycle takes place on the animal, and these ear mites feed off the epithelial debris (skin flakes) and secretions on the entire body of the animal.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the mite's entire life cycle does not take place on the animal. While it is true that ear mites feed off the epithelial debris and secretions on the animal's body, they only spend part of their life cycle on the animal. The mites lay their eggs in the animal's ear canal, and the larvae then develop into adults before leaving the host to mate and lay eggs elsewhere.

    Rate this question:

  • 10.

    • A.

      Contagious

    • B.

      Concerning

    • C.

      Infectious

    Correct Answer
    A. Contagious
    Explanation
    Walking dandruff is highly contagious, meaning it can easily spread from one animal to another. This implies that if an animal comes into contact with an infected animal, there is a high likelihood of becoming infested with walking dandruff. The term "contagious" is used to describe diseases or conditions that can be transmitted or spread from one individual to another through direct or indirect contact.
