Dog ate chocolate?

ask a vet

My dog is deaf.

Species: Dog
Breed: english pointer
Age: 11-15 years
Almost total deaf within the last 3 months. 14 yr. old english pointer. Female. In good health otherwise. What can be done????




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

Unfortunately there really isn't anything we can do to diagnose or treat deafness in dogs.

If your vet feels there is any infection in the ears then treating this may help.

But if this is because of aging, there is nothing that can be done.
