We have just noticed in the last month that our 2 year old Toby has began to lose his hearing. Took him to vet yesterday and one of his ears was dirty down so deep she couldn't even reach it and the other was completely filthy. Am cleaning twice a day now and hoping it will loosen it all up but am terrified that his hearing will not come back. anyone else out there with same problem or any hopes that it will come back? He is also going to have to have knee surgery this summer so this is tearing me up inside. would appreciate any words of wisdom.
Vet said we will just have to wait and see and no explanation as to how it got so dirty. No ear mite and no infection just pure dirt so trying to get it as clean as possible. Thanks for the reply and will keep you posted on hearing.
Just wanted to update on Toby's ears! We have cleaned them out and he is hearing perfect now! I never imagined they could get so dirty to block hearing. It was just one of his ears and now we are cleaning it once a week to prevent future problems!
