Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the most common cause of pet obesity?

    • A.

      Excessive calorie intake

    • B.

      Ad lib feeding (ie food available all the time)

    • C.

      Reduced energy expenditure

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Excessive calorie intake
    Explanation
    Excessive calorie intake is the most common cause of pet obesity. When pets consume more calories than they burn, the excess energy is stored as fat, leading to weight gain. This can happen if pets are fed too much or given high-calorie treats and snacks. Ad lib feeding, where food is available all the time, can contribute to excessive calorie intake. Similarly, reduced energy expenditure, such as lack of exercise or a sedentary lifestyle, can also lead to weight gain if calorie intake is not adjusted accordingly.

  • 2. 

    Secondary diseases that may develop as a result of obesity include:

    • A.

      Diabetes mellitus

    • B.

      Osteoarthritis

    • C.

      Chronic renal disease

    • D.

      A and B

    Correct Answer
    D. A and B
    Explanation
    Obesity can lead to the development of secondary diseases such as diabetes mellitus and osteoarthritis. Diabetes mellitus is a condition characterized by high blood sugar levels, which can be caused by obesity and insulin resistance. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that can be worsened by the excess weight and strain on the joints caused by obesity. Chronic renal disease, on the other hand, is not directly linked to obesity. Therefore, the correct answer is A and B, which are diabetes mellitus and osteoarthritis.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Predisposing factors for obesity include which of the following?

    • A.

      Neutering

    • B.

      Breed

    • C.

      A and B

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. A and B
    Explanation
    Neutering and breed are predisposing factors for obesity. Neutering can lead to hormonal changes that can affect metabolism and increase the risk of weight gain. Certain breeds, such as Labrador Retrievers and Beagles, are genetically predisposed to obesity. Therefore, both neutering and breed can contribute to the development of obesity in individuals.

  • 4. 

    Which of the following does NOT explain what the word ‘satiety’ means?

    • A.

      A feeling of fullness

    • B.

      The opposite of hungry

    • C.

      Desire to eat

    • D.

      Satisfied

    Correct Answer
    C. Desire to eat
    Explanation
    The word "satiety" means a feeling of fullness or being satisfied after eating. It does not mean a desire to eat, as the opposite is true. When someone is experiencing satiety, they do not have a desire to eat because they feel full and satisfied.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Please select the incorrect answer. High protein diets:

    • A.

      Provide a feeling of fullness

    • B.

      Maintain lean muscle mass

    • C.

      Provide less net energy than carbohydrates

    • D.

      Cause an increase stool volume compared to high fibre diets

    Correct Answer
    D. Cause an increase stool volume compared to high fibre diets
    Explanation
    High protein diets do not cause an increase in stool volume compared to high fiber diets. Fiber is known to add bulk to the stool and increase stool volume, whereas protein does not have the same effect. Protein is important for maintaining lean muscle mass and can provide a feeling of fullness, but it does not directly affect stool volume.

  • 6. 

    L-Carnitine facilitates transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria of cells and is a            nutrient that can help weight loss. L carnitine is a:

    • A.

      Amino acid

    • B.

      Protein

    • C.

      Carbohydrate

    • D.

      Vitamin

    Correct Answer
    A. Amino acid
    Explanation
    L-Carnitine is a nutrient that facilitates the transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria of cells. It is classified as an amino acid, which is a building block of proteins. While proteins are made up of amino acids, L-Carnitine itself is not a protein. It is synthesized in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine. L-Carnitine is not a carbohydrate or a vitamin.

    Nutrients added to the Satiety Diets that provide joint support include

    • A.

      Beet pulp

    • B.

      Glucosamine

    • C.

      Chondroitin

    • D.

      B and C

    Correct Answer
    D. B and C
    Explanation
    The nutrients added to the Satiety Diets that provide joint support are Glucosamine and Chondroitin. These two substances are commonly used in joint supplements and have been found to help improve joint health and reduce joint pain and inflammation. Glucosamine is a natural compound that helps in the formation and repair of cartilage, while Chondroitin helps to maintain the elasticity of cartilage and reduce joint stiffness. Together, they can provide support and promote joint health.

    There is a strong correlation between obesity and the development of uroliths.  What does the S/O Index on the Satiety Canine wet, Satiety Canine small dog & Satiety Feline diets mean?

    • A.

      The diet will promote a urinary environment unfavourable for the formation of struvite and calcium oxalate crystals

    • B.

      The diet promotes a high urinary pH

    • C.

      The diet promotes dissolution of struvite and calcium oxalate uroliths

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. The diet will promote a urinary environment unfavourable for the formation of struvite and calcium oxalate crystals
    Explanation
    The S/O Index on the Satiety Canine wet, Satiety Canine small dog, and Satiety Feline diets means that the diet will promote a urinary environment that is unfavorable for the formation of struvite and calcium oxalate crystals. This is important because these crystals can contribute to the development of uroliths, which are stone-like formations in the urinary tract. By promoting a urinary environment that discourages crystal formation, the diet can help prevent the formation of uroliths and reduce the risk of related health issues.

    Fish oil is added to all of the Satiety diets as an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids.  How is EPA/DHA supplementation beneficial in obese pets?

    • A.

      Fish oil enhances the palatability of the diet

    • B.

      Has an anti-inflammatory effect

    • C.

      Helps to increase hair growth

    • D.

      Helps to reduce the risk of brittle hair

    Correct Answer
    B. Has an anti-inflammatory effect
    Explanation
    EPA/DHA supplementation in obese pets is beneficial because it has an anti-inflammatory effect. Omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil, such as EPA and DHA, have been shown to reduce inflammation in the body. Inflammation is often associated with obesity and can contribute to various health issues. By reducing inflammation, EPA/DHA supplementation can help improve overall health and potentially alleviate symptoms related to obesity.

    Why should a hypocaloric diet such as the Satiety diets be used rather than just reducing the portion size of the pet’s regular diet?  Select the incorrect answer:

    • A.

      Ensures correct amounts of essential nutrients are being provided for the pet despite calorie reduction

    • B.

      Meal volume remains the same due to reduced caloric density of the diet

    • C.

      Low protein high carbohydrate content is key to weight loss

    • D.

      More successful weight loss is achieved through reducing calorie density

    Correct Answer
    C. Low protein high carbohydrate content is key to weight loss
    Explanation
    A hypocaloric diet such as the Satiety diets should be used rather than just reducing the portion size of the pet's regular diet because it ensures correct amounts of essential nutrients are being provided for the pet despite calorie reduction. This is important to maintain the pet's overall health and prevent any nutrient deficiencies. Additionally, the meal volume remains the same due to the reduced caloric density of the diet, which helps the pet feel full and satisfied. Lastly, more successful weight loss is achieved through reducing calorie density, as it allows for a greater reduction in overall calorie intake without compromising essential nutrients.

      45-55%

    • B.

      15-30%

    • C.

      5-10%

    • D.

      10-15%

    Correct Answer
    A. 45-55%
    Explanation
    Approximately 45-55% of dogs and cats presented at veterinary clinics are overweight or obese. This suggests that a significant portion of pets are not maintaining a healthy weight, which can lead to various health issues such as diabetes, joint problems, and heart disease. It emphasizes the importance of proper nutrition and regular exercise to ensure the well-being of pets.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Please select the incorrect answer. Obese animals can be at risk of the following conditions:

    • A.

      Diabetes Mellitus

    • B.

      Increased surgical and anaesthetic risk

    • C.

      Renal failure

    • D.

      Arthritis

    Correct Answer
    C. Renal failure
    Explanation
    Obese animals can be at risk of various health conditions, including diabetes mellitus, increased surgical and anaesthetic risk, and arthritis. However, renal failure is not typically associated with obesity. While obesity can contribute to kidney disease in humans, there is limited evidence to suggest a direct link between obesity and renal failure in animals. Therefore, renal failure is the incorrect answer in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Please select the incorrect answer. Neutering is recommended because:

    • A.

      It increases the lifespan of pets

    • B.

      To prevent unwanted kittens and puppies

    • C.

      It helps to prevent obesity

    • D.

      It helps to prevent conditions such as pyometra, mammary and prostate cancers

    Correct Answer
    C. It helps to prevent obesity
    Explanation
    The given answer, "It helps to prevent obesity," is incorrect. Neutering itself does not directly prevent obesity in pets. However, it can indirectly contribute to weight management as neutered pets may have lower energy requirements, and their owners can adjust their diet and exercise accordingly to prevent obesity. Therefore, while neutering may indirectly help prevent obesity, it is not a direct preventive measure.

    Please select the incorrect answer. Ways to encourage cats to exercise include:

    • A.

      Hiding food

    • B.

      Keeping cat inside a small room

    • C.

      Providing special toys

    • D.

      Make the cat walk upstairs to get food

    Correct Answer
    B. Keeping cat inside a small room
    Explanation
    Keeping a cat inside a small room is not a way to encourage cats to exercise. Cats need space to move around and explore in order to stay active and engaged. Keeping them confined to a small room limits their ability to engage in physical activity and can lead to boredom and lethargy. Providing opportunities for cats to explore and play in larger areas of the house or providing access to outdoor spaces can help encourage exercise and keep them healthy.
