Mini-Quiz: Flea Bite Problems for Dogs

by Ron Kurtus (updated 18 January 2022)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why do fleas bite dogs?

They are just plain mean

To attach their eggs to the bite

To get blood to lay their eggs

2. How many flea bites might cause an allergic reaction?

As few as one or two flea bites a week

About 200 bites

Flea eggs cause allergies, not bites

3. How can a dog get tapeworms from fleas?

By excessive scratching

By eating an infected flea

No one is sure

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Animal Health. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Periodically, check your dog for fleas
