Hearing Loss in Dogs
My 14-year-old dog is in good health except for cataracts that limit his forward vision and low to medium tone deafness. We just moved, and he doesn’t know his boundaries. He’s much harder to control verbally any more. Is this hearing loss normal?
Unfortunately hearing loss is quite common at age 14. It is neurologic in nature, and there is no treatment for the loss. Hearing aids have been tried in dogs but are not tolerated.
