  • 3. 

    Dogs are highly adaptable in terms of diet.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Dogs are highly adaptable in terms of diet because they are omnivores, meaning they can eat both meat and plant-based foods. This adaptability allows them to survive and thrive on a variety of diets, including commercial dog food, homemade meals, or a combination of both. Additionally, dogs have a digestive system that can break down and absorb nutrients from different types of food, making them capable of adjusting to different dietary needs and preferences.

    Inadequate feeding is uncommon, particularly among breeders.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that inadequate feeding is rare, especially among breeders. However, the correct answer is False, indicating that inadequate feeding is actually common, even among breeders. This implies that breeders, like other individuals, may also face challenges in providing adequate nutrition to their animals.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Young puppies up to ______ of age should be allowed to exercise themselves.

    • A.

      4 months

    • B.

      5 months

    • C.

      6 months

    • D.

      7 months

    Correct Answer
    C. 6 months
    Explanation
    Young puppies up to 6 months of age should be allowed to exercise themselves. This is because puppies are still growing and developing during this time, and excessive exercise can put strain on their developing bones and joints. Allowing puppies to exercise at their own pace helps prevent injuries and promotes healthy growth. It is important to gradually increase exercise as the puppy gets older and their bones and joints become stronger.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Desexing should take place at _______ of age, before the female has her first season.

    • A.

      6 or 7 months

    • B.

      4 or 5 months

    • C.

      5 or 6 months

    Correct Answer
    C. 5 or 6 months
    Explanation
    Desexing should take place at 5 or 6 months of age, before the female has her first season. This is because desexing at this age helps prevent unwanted pregnancies and reduces the risk of certain health issues such as mammary tumors and uterine infections. Waiting until after the first season increases the chances of the female becoming pregnant and also makes the surgery more complex and potentially riskier. Therefore, it is recommended to desex the female cat at 5 or 6 months of age.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Light-coloured dogs, in general, have weaker skins than darker-coloured dogs.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Light-colored dogs generally have weaker skins than darker-colored dogs because the pigment melanin, which gives color to the skin, also provides protection against the harmful effects of the sun. Darker-colored dogs have more melanin in their skin, which helps to shield them from UV radiation and reduces the risk of sunburn and skin damage. In contrast, lighter-colored dogs have less melanin, making their skin more susceptible to sunburn and other skin issues.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    An adult dog requires about 10g of food per 650g of body-weight.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because an adult dog requires about 10g of food per 1kg of body weight, not per 650g.
