Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is NOT a way to spread rabies?

    • A.

      Saliva

    • B.

      Blood

    • C.

      Breast Milk

    • D.

      Tears

    Correct Answer
    B. Blood
    Explanation
    Rabies is a viral disease that is primarily spread through the saliva of infected animals, particularly through bites. However, it can also be transmitted through contact with infected tissues or organs, such as the brain or spinal cord, which may contain the virus in high concentrations. Although blood can potentially contain the rabies virus, it is not a primary mode of transmission. Therefore, blood is not a way to spread rabies.

    Which of the following is NOT a phase of rabies?

    • A.

      Shock

    • B.

      Furious

    • C.

      Paralytic

    • D.

      Prodomal

    Correct Answer
    A. Shock
  • 3. 

    Fever is a symptom of the prodromal phase of rabies. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Fever is not a symptom of the prodromal phase of rabies. The prodromal phase of rabies is characterized by non-specific symptoms such as headache, fever, and malaise. However, fever is not always present during this phase. Other symptoms that may be present include anxiety, insomnia, and fatigue. It is important to note that the prodromal phase is followed by the acute neurological phase, where symptoms such as hydrophobia, hallucinations, and paralysis occur.

    Dilated pupils is a symptom of the furious phase of rabies. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Dilated pupils are indeed a symptom of the furious phase of rabies. During this phase, which occurs after the initial prodromal phase, the patient may exhibit aggressive and hyperactive behavior. Dilated pupils are commonly observed in this phase due to the excessive stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system. This symptom is indicative of the neurological effects of the rabies virus on the body.

    During the furious phase of rabies, what facial expressions are generally shown?

    • A.

      Anxiety and Fear

    • B.

      Anger and Fear

    • C.

      Anger and Hyperalterness

    • D.

      Anxiety and Anger

    • E.

      Anxiety and Hyperalterness

    Correct Answer
    E. Anxiety and Hyperalterness
    Explanation
    During the furious phase of rabies, the affected individual typically experiences anxiety and hyperalertness. This is because rabies affects the central nervous system, leading to agitation, restlessness, and increased sensitivity to stimuli. Anxiety is a common symptom, as the person may feel a sense of impending doom or fear. Hyperalertness refers to an increased state of awareness and vigilance, where the individual may be constantly on edge and easily startled. These facial expressions are indicative of the intense neurological symptoms experienced during the furious phase of rabies.

    The raising of the upper jaw is a symptom of the paralytic phase of rabies. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the raising of the upper jaw is actually a symptom of the furious phase of rabies, not the paralytic phase. In the furious phase, the infected individual may exhibit aggressive behavior, excessive salivation, and muscle spasms, including the raising of the upper jaw. In the paralytic phase, on the other hand, the individual experiences muscle weakness, paralysis, and difficulty swallowing.

    Which of the following is NOT a sign of aggression in dogs?

    • A.

      Growling

    • B.

      Staring

    • C.

      Snapping

    • D.

      Lunging

    • E.

      Baring teeth

    • F.

      Blocking your path

    Correct Answer
    B. Staring
    Explanation
    Staring is not a sign of aggression in dogs. While growling, snapping, lunging, baring teeth, and blocking your path can all be signs of aggression, staring is not necessarily aggressive behavior. Dogs may stare for various reasons such as curiosity, attention-seeking, or simply observing their surroundings. Aggression in dogs is more commonly displayed through vocalizations, physical displays, and direct physical contact rather than just staring.

    What best describes a cat's tail when showing signs of aggression?

    • A.

      Curved tail with bristled fur

    • B.

      Curved tail with flat fur

    • C.

      Straight tail with bristled fur

    • D.

      Straight tail with flat fur

    Correct Answer
    C. Straight tail with bristled fur
    Explanation
    When a cat is showing signs of aggression, its tail may straighten out and become stiff or bristled. This is a defensive posture that indicates the cat is ready to attack or defend itself. The bristled fur on the tail is a result of the cat puffing up its fur in order to appear larger and more intimidating.

    What organ generates the best results when testing for rabies?

    • A.

      Heart

    • B.

      Brain

    • C.

      Lungs

    • D.

      Liver

    • E.

      Kidneys

    Correct Answer
    B. Brain
    Explanation
    The brain generates the best results when testing for rabies because the virus primarily affects the central nervous system. Rabies is a viral infection that attacks the brain and spinal cord, causing inflammation and severe neurological symptoms. Therefore, testing the brain tissue allows for a more accurate detection of the virus and confirmation of the disease. Other organs may also show signs of the virus, but the brain is the most reliable and specific organ for diagnosing rabies.

    Inconclusive tests are treated as positive for rabies. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Inconclusive tests are treated as positive for rabies because the consequences of a false negative are too severe. Rabies is a highly dangerous and deadly disease, and if a test result is inconclusive, it is better to err on the side of caution and assume that the animal is positive for rabies. This ensures that appropriate measures can be taken to protect public health and prevent the spread of the disease.
