Deafness ,Hard Of Hearing or Just Plain Stubborn
Daisy can be described as one of the above and its certainly either hard of hearing or stubborn .She is
a very independent and stubborn girl with a very definate mind of her own but when in slumber she now takes
a nudge rather than a call to wake up but when awake and attentive she is quite attentive and good with hand commands
via treats I have taught all of them .I never let them any of them off lead when any roads and I am fortunate that Luke
is with me on all walks to go get her if she dawdles too far behind ,which she always does.
How can I determine if she is going deaf or just being plain stubborn and any guidance please on the care
of harder to hear Cavaliers.
Gracie is somewhat like that too...
I agree that if she responds to loud sound behind her or rustle of treat bag, then you know she's just being Daisy. On related topic, several folks here cautioned me about an ear infection medication recently prescribed for Gracie. That it has led to temporary or permanent hearing loss, but mostly in older dogs. well, our neighbor's pug has had a few ear infections and has taken Mometamax three times over past year and is now half deaf. He is just 5 years old. So just thought I would help alert that it is potential issue.
