Our expert says:
All dogs show different degrees of hearing loss with age. It is difficult to estimate the age when this will occur as it depends on the individual animals.
You can test the dogs hearing by
1) Approacing the dog from behind and clapping your hands, using a squeeky toy or shaking a set of keys and observing the dogs response
2)Brainstem Auditory Evoked Response testing at a referal clinic
