Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A prolapsed eyeball, an eyeball that has popped out of the socket, is when the skin around the eye is pulled back too far.  This happens mostly on Pugs and _____________ type faces.

    • A.

      Lhasa Apso

    • B.

      Maltese

    • C.

      Shih Tzu

    Correct Answer
    C. Shih Tzu
    Explanation
    Shih Tzu dogs have a specific facial structure with a short nose and prominent eyes, which makes them more prone to eye problems such as prolapsed eyeballs. The skin around their eyes can easily be pulled back too far, leading to the eyeball popping out of the socket.

  • 2. 

    Be sure not to do heart compressions and __________________ at the same time.

    • A.

      Check pulse

    • B.

      Lay the animal on its side

    • C.

      Artificial respiration

    Correct Answer
    C. Artificial respiration
    Explanation
    During CPR, it is important to alternate between chest compressions and artificial respiration to effectively provide oxygen to the animal's lungs and circulate blood throughout the body. If heart compressions and artificial respiration are done at the same time, it can disrupt the flow of oxygen and blood, reducing the effectiveness of the CPR. Therefore, it is crucial to avoid performing both actions simultaneously.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Before beginning CPR, do the following: check for a response from the animal, check the animals breathing, and check for ______________.

    • A.

      Poor gum color

    • B.

      A pulse

    • C.

      Fast breathing

    Correct Answer
    B. A pulse
    Explanation
    Before beginning CPR, it is important to check for a response from the animal, check the animal's breathing, and also check for a pulse. This is crucial as it helps determine if the animal's heart is still beating and if immediate CPR is required. Checking for a pulse can be done by feeling for a heartbeat or by checking for the presence of a pulse in certain areas of the body, such as the femoral artery.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Bloat is a condition which can affect any dog but primarily ___________________ and giant breeds.  It can strike without warning and can cause death within hours.

    • A.

      Barrel-ribbed large

    • B.

      Shallow-chested large

    • C.

      Deep-chested large

    Correct Answer
    C. Deep-chested large
    Explanation
    Bloat is a condition that primarily affects deep-chested large dog breeds. This condition can occur suddenly and can be fatal within a few hours. Deep-chested dogs, such as Great Danes and German Shepherds, are more prone to bloat because their chest shape allows the stomach to twist or fill with gas more easily. This can lead to a life-threatening condition known as gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV). Therefore, it is important for owners of deep-chested large breeds to be aware of the symptoms and take preventive measures to reduce the risk of bloat.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Cat bites are extremely dangerous because of the lethal bacteria in their mouths.  This bacteria stays in the puncture wound which can ___________________.

    • A.

      Be fatal

    • B.

      Become irritated

    • C.

      Become infected

    Correct Answer
    C. Become infected
    Explanation
    Cat bites are extremely dangerous because cats have bacteria in their mouths that can cause infections. When a cat bites, the bacteria can be transferred into the puncture wound, leading to an infection. If left untreated, the infection can spread and potentially become fatal. Therefore, it is important to seek medical attention and properly clean and treat cat bites to prevent infection.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Certain ticks can cause serious illness in pets, family members, as well as yourself.  As a precaution: ___________________.

    • A.

      Soak the tick in water

    • B.

      Do not touch tick with your fingers

    • C.

      Call your Doctor

    Correct Answer
    B. Do not touch tick with your fingers
    Explanation
    Ticks can carry harmful bacteria and pathogens that can cause serious illness when they come into contact with humans or pets. Touching a tick with bare hands increases the risk of transmitting these pathogens through the skin. Therefore, it is important to avoid touching ticks with bare fingers to minimize the chances of infection and disease transmission.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Chemical burns should be washed with cool water, then apply a cold wet towel or cold pack, wrap with a clean cloth, and __________________.

    • A.

      Call the owner

    • B.

      Take pet immediately to vet

    • C.

      Apply pressure

    Correct Answer
    B. Take pet immediately to vet
    Explanation
    When a pet suffers a chemical burn, it is crucial to seek immediate veterinary assistance. Chemical burns can be severe and may cause significant damage to the pet's skin and underlying tissues. Washing the affected area with cool water helps to remove any remaining chemicals, but it is not sufficient for proper treatment. Applying a cold wet towel or cold pack and wrapping it with a clean cloth can help to alleviate pain and reduce swelling temporarily. However, these measures do not address the potential complications and long-term consequences of a chemical burn. Therefore, taking the pet immediately to the vet is necessary to receive appropriate medical care and prevent further harm.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Common areas for nicks and cuts are: ____________, hocks, nipples, pads, tuck-up, warts, and web.

    • A.

      Ribcage

    • B.

      Tail

    • C.

      Armpits

    Correct Answer
    C. Armpits
    Explanation
    Armpits are common areas for nicks and cuts because they are a sensitive and often overlooked area. The skin in the armpits is thin and prone to chafing or rubbing against clothing, leading to cuts or nicks. Additionally, shaving or using hair removal methods in this area can also increase the risk of cuts.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If a dog starts to itch after being bathed, she will probably need to be re-bathed in a mild shampoo with cool water to relieve the itching.  Never re-bathe a dog with a harsh tar shampoo or use _________________.

    • A.

      Warm water

    • B.

      Cool water

    • C.

      Hot water

    Correct Answer
    C. Hot water
    Explanation
    Using hot water can further irritate the dog's skin and worsen the itching. Hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils and cause dryness and inflammation. It is important to use cool water when re-bathing a dog to soothe the itching and avoid any further discomfort or irritation.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    If a toenail is cut too short and starts bleeding, apply pressure with your fingers at the joint above the foot, then apply _____________ to the nail.

    • A.

      A cold wet towel

    • B.

      Styptic powder

    • C.

      A gauze pad

    Correct Answer
    B. Styptic powder
    Explanation
    When a toenail is cut too short and starts bleeding, applying pressure with fingers at the joint above the foot helps to slow down the bleeding. After that, using styptic powder on the nail can further aid in stopping the bleeding. Styptic powder is a substance that contains ingredients like aluminum sulfate or potassium alum, which help to constrict blood vessels and promote clotting. By applying styptic powder to the bleeding toenail, it can help to stop the bleeding effectively.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    If a toenail starts to bleed after the owner gets home and they do not have styptic powder, they can use ___________ or flour.

    • A.

      Corn starch

    • B.

      Salt

    • C.

      Baking soda

    Correct Answer
    A. Corn starch
    Explanation
    If a toenail starts to bleed and the owner does not have styptic powder, they can use corn starch or flour. Corn starch is a common household item that can be used to help stop bleeding. It works by absorbing the blood and forming a clot, which helps to stop the bleeding. Similarly, flour can also be used as an alternative to corn starch in this situation. Both corn starch and flour can be easily applied to the bleeding toenail to help control the bleeding until further medical assistance can be obtained.

    If a tongue has been cut or nicked, you should _____________.

    • A.

      Let the pet lick an ice cube

    • B.

      Apply pressure

    • C.

      Apply a cold ,wet towel or cold pack

    Correct Answer
    A. Let the pet lick an ice cube
    Explanation
    When a tongue has been cut or nicked, letting the pet lick an ice cube can provide relief and help reduce swelling. The cold temperature of the ice cube can help numb the area and provide a soothing effect. Additionally, the licking action can help clean the wound and promote healing. Applying pressure or a cold, wet towel or pack may not be as effective in providing immediate relief and addressing the specific issue of a cut or nick on the tongue.

      Apply a cold, wet towel or cold pack

    • C.

      Take the pet to a vet

    Correct Answer
    C. Take the pet to a vet
    Explanation
    If an ear has been severely cut, it is important to take the pet to a vet. This is because a severe cut to the ear can cause significant bleeding and may require stitches or other medical intervention. A vet will be able to assess the extent of the injury and provide the appropriate treatment to prevent infection and promote healing.

    If shampoo or hair gets in the eyes, you should gently let _____________ run over the eye.

    • A.

      Your fingers

    • B.

      Water

    • C.

      Cool air

    Correct Answer
    B. Water
    Explanation
    If shampoo or hair gets in the eyes, the best course of action is to rinse the eye with water. Water helps to flush out any irritants and can provide relief from any discomfort or stinging sensation. Using fingers to rinse the eye may not be as effective or hygienic as water. Cool air is not suitable for rinsing the eye and may not provide the necessary cleansing action.

    Shock usually occurs after ___________________.

    • A.

      An accident

    • B.

      Grooming

    • C.

      Vigorous exercise

    Correct Answer
    A. An accident
    Explanation
    Shock usually occurs after an accident because accidents can cause physical trauma and injury to the body. This trauma can lead to a significant drop in blood pressure and a decrease in blood flow to vital organs. The body's response to this is to go into shock, which is a life-threatening condition that requires immediate medical attention. Symptoms of shock include pale skin, rapid heartbeat, shallow breathing, and confusion. Therefore, it is important to recognize the signs of shock and seek medical help promptly after an accident to prevent further complications.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Signs of choking include: gagging, ______________, drooling, and possible loss of consciousness.

    • A.

      Vomiting

    • B.

      Trauma

    • C.

      Paws at mouth

    Correct Answer
    C. Paws at mouth
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "paws at mouth." When someone is choking, their airway is partially or completely blocked, causing them to struggle to breathe. One common sign of choking is when the person instinctively tries to remove the obstruction by using their hands to paw at their mouth. This action indicates that they are experiencing difficulty in swallowing and may require immediate assistance. The other options, vomiting and trauma, are not specific signs of choking and do not directly relate to the obstruction of the airway.

      100.5° to 102°F

    • B.

      90.5° to 96°F

    • C.

      98° to 100.5°F

    Correct Answer
    A. 100.5° to 102°F
    Explanation
    The normal temperature range for dogs and cats is 100.5° to 102°F. This range is considered normal because it falls within the typical body temperature range for these animals. It is important for pet owners to monitor their pet's temperature as a high or low temperature can indicate an underlying health issue.

  • 21. 

    Some common conditions believed to cause bloat are: vigorous exercise before or after eating, excessive water drinking after eating or exercise, _______________, abnormal swallowing of air, trauma, vomiting, eating foreign objects, heredity, abdominal surgery, or behavior disturbances.

    • A.

      Overeating

    • B.

      Obesity

    • C.

      An eating disorder

    Correct Answer
    A. Overeating
    Explanation
    Overeating is a common condition believed to cause bloat. When a person consumes a large amount of food in a short period of time, it can lead to bloating. This is because the stomach becomes overly full, causing discomfort and a feeling of fullness. Overeating can put pressure on the digestive system, leading to the accumulation of gas and fluid in the stomach, resulting in bloating.
