Pets questions This is a list of recently added questions about pets. Play pets quiz and see all the questions. Which common medication is extremely toxic to cats?Paracetamol. Ingestion of paracetamol leads to methemoglobin formation, as cats lack the glucuronyl transferase enzymes necessary to break it down safely. This inhibits oxygen transport by the blood, causing asphyxiation. Each year many cat owners kill their cats by giving them paracetamol-based pain relief drugs.Created by: globalquiz.orgcats riddles »hard 41% aspirinaspirin793paracetamolparacetamol1064ibuprofenibuprofen301vitamine Cvitamine C422 What animal is that?African wild dog is not a dog, it does not even belong to Canis genus (where dogs, wolves and foxes belong), having fewer toes and different dentition. It was once widespread across Africa, but today the species is endangered. The name "painted dog" is being promoted by some conservationists as a way of "re-branding" the species, to avoid negative connotations of "wild dog".Created by: globalquiz.orgmammals of Africa riddles »hard 49% jackaljackal1547african wild dogafrican wild dog4660hyenahyena3066dogdog209 What was the name of Odysseus' faithful dog?Argos.

The Manx taillessness gene is dominant; kittens from two Manx parents are generally born without any tail. However, having two copies of the gene is lethal in utero, so breeders avoid breeding two entirely tailless Manx cats together. Typically, when bred with non-Manx cat, tail length is random throughout a litter of kittens.Created by: globalquiz.orggenetics riddles »average 61% ManxManx6035AbyssinianAbyssinian1494BirmanBirman1709SiameseSiamese549 What type of sweets is the most problematic for dogs?Chocolate contains theobromine, which is toxic to dogs. Small gods can succumb to theobromine poisoning from as little as 50 grams (1.8 oz) of milk chocolate and 400 grams (14 oz) for an average-sized dog. The dark chocolate is far more toxic to dogs, as the concentration of theobromine in dark chocolates is up to 10 times that of milk chocolate.Created by: globalquiz.orgsweets riddles »very easy 81% chocolatechocolate9285lollipopslollipops221cotton candycotton candy260chewing gumchewing gum1693 Which type of dog tends to live longest?Small dogs.

Domestic cats are neither attracted to, nor show avoidance of the taste of sweet carbohydrates and high-intensity sweeteners. Recordings from cat taste nerve fibers demonstrate responses to salty, sour, and bitter stimuli, but show no response to sugars. Other than that, the sense of taste in cats appears similar to that of other mammals.Created by: globalquiz.orgnature riddles »average 69% dogsdogs1025catscats7978hamstershamsters1462house rabbitshouse rabbits940 Which army used anti-tank dogs during the WW2?Soviets.

The U.S. military trained anti-tank dogs in 1943 for use against fortifications, but never deployed them.Created by: globalquiz.orgtanks riddles »average 62% GermansGermans4715SovietsSoviets12680JapaneseJapanese1879AmericansAmericans1139 Which mammals have the best sense of smell?Bears.
