Hearing Loss in Dogs
Dogs experience hearing loss, just like humans do. The loss of hearing can either be temporary or permanent. Temporary hearing loss is usually caused due to wax build-up or any foreign particle in the ear canal. Permanent hearing loss is caused either due to old age, ear infections that havent been treated for a long time or congenital hearing loss. <br><br> Temporary deafness can be treated by a veterinarian. It is usually done by removal of excessive ear wax or the foreign particle that has entered the ear canal. Temporary hearing loss is most often non-treatable. Certain breeds of dogs are born with congenital deafness, which they have acquired by birth.
