One of our Heelers went deaf.
We have two elderly blue heelers that are a mother and son. The mother Po Po, (don't ask) is 15 and her son ****, (again, don't ask) is 13 and we discovered Saturday that **** is totally deaf. Last week he could hear just fine and now he is absolutely deaf. I whistled as loud as I could next to him and he didn't even flinch and we are totally confused about it. He's in good health and his ears are clean and clear of any inflammation and he doesn't show any discomfort but he's deaf as a rock. They used to stay in the kennel outside but they've been house dogs for a year or two and they've never been exposed to loud noises like gunfire or machinery. We'll get him to the vet this week but I'm confused about how he went from hearing fine to stone deaf so quickly.
