Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    As an animal ages, grooming becomes more and more important and the senior pet spends less time grooming itself.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    As animals age, their physical abilities and flexibility may decline, making it more difficult for them to groom themselves effectively. This can lead to the accumulation of dirt, debris, and matting in their fur, which can cause discomfort and skin issues. Therefore, it becomes increasingly important for senior pets to receive regular grooming sessions from their owners or professional groomers to maintain their hygiene and overall well-being.

    • A.

      Eyesight

    • B.

      Grumpy and impatient

    • D.

      Skin becomes taught

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Eyesight
    B. Grumpy and impatient
    C. Heart problem
    Explanation
    As pets age, they may experience changes in their eyesight, becoming less sharp or developing conditions such as cataracts. This can affect their ability to navigate their surroundings and may require special care. Older pets may also become grumpy and impatient, possibly due to discomfort or pain associated with aging. Additionally, heart problems are common in older pets, and it is important to be aware of any signs or symptoms and provide appropriate care. Skin becoming taught is not mentioned as a special condition to consider when handling or grooming older pets.

    What type of coat can help improve a senior pet's skin condition?

    • A.

      Long Hair

    • B.

      Short hair

    Correct Answer
    B. Short hair
    Explanation
    Short hair is the correct answer because it requires less grooming and is easier to maintain for senior pets. Senior pets may have more sensitive skin and may be prone to skin conditions, so having shorter hair can help prevent matting and reduce the risk of skin irritations. Additionally, shorter hair allows for better air circulation, which can help keep the skin dry and prevent the growth of bacteria or fungi.

    Sometimes it is better to cut an older dog or cat’s claws every two weeks to prevent overgrowth and make walking easier for them.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Regularly trimming an older dog or cat's claws every two weeks can help prevent overgrowth and make walking easier for them. As pets age, their nails tend to grow longer and thicker, which can cause discomfort and difficulty in walking. By keeping their claws trimmed, it reduces the risk of the nails curling or becoming ingrown, and also minimizes the chances of them getting caught on surfaces or causing injury. Trimming the claws every two weeks is a proactive measure to ensure the pet's comfort and mobility.

    There are a number of diseases that occur in senior pets that are not usually seen in younger ones:-  (Select three)

    • A.

      Cancer

    • B.

      Heart Diseases

    • C.

      Brittle toenails

    • D.

      Liver Diseases

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Cancer
    B. Heart Diseases
    D. Liver Diseases
    Explanation
    As pets age, their bodies become more susceptible to certain diseases that are not commonly seen in younger pets. Cancer is one such disease that is more prevalent in senior pets. The risk of developing cancer increases with age due to various factors such as genetic predisposition and cumulative exposure to environmental toxins. Heart diseases are also more common in senior pets as the heart muscles weaken over time. Liver diseases can also occur in older pets due to factors such as decreased liver function and the accumulation of toxins over the years. Brittle toenails, on the other hand, are not typically associated with age-related diseases in pets.

Arthritis is another condition that can occur in aging dogs, causing pain and inflammation in the joints. These three issues are commonly seen in older dogs and can impact their overall health and quality of life.
