    Hearing loss, or deafness, can be present at birth (congenital), or become evident later in life (acquired). The distinction between acquired and congenital deafness specifies only the time that the deafness appears. It does not specify whether the cause of the deafness is genetic (inherited).

      Introduction
      Like dog owners everywhere, we love our dogs. Outside of an obvious physical defect, deaf dogs are just your normal, everyday dogs. They do have a better excuse for not listening than most dogs, but they live in our houses, sleep on our beds, play with our children and ride in our cars. They go for walks, chase balls, bark at squirrels (yes, they do bark), and at the end of the day, they collapse in front of the TV with the rest of the family. They share our lives, and are our companions and friends. A person who has just discovered that their dog is deaf (or is considering the adoption of a deaf dog) will often be faced with the negative warnings of well meaning friends and misinformed experts. Too many spread horror stories about aggressive, biting, deaf dogs that couldn't be trusted or trained, and would eventually break our hearts. These pages (and others on this site) are here to counteract this misinformation.

Hearing disorders make it hard, but not impossible, to hear. They can often be helped. Deafness can keep you from hearing sound at all. What causes hearing loss? Some possibilities are There are two main types of hearing loss. One happens when your inner ear or auditory nerve is damaged. This type is permanent. The other kind happens when sound waves cannot reach your inner ear. Earwax build-up, fluid or a punctured eardrum can cause it. Untreated, hearing problems can get worse. If you have trouble hearing, you can get help. Possible treatments include hearing aids cochlear implants , special training, certain medicines and surgery.

      Deafness
      Canine deafness is diagnosed with increasing frequency, primarily as a result of heightened awareness of the disorder among owners, breeders and clinicians. Quick, non-invasive, objective and unequivocal diagnosis of deafness, especially when unilateral, is achieved by means of the Brainstem Auditory Evoked Response (BAER). This is an electrodiagnostic test where the electrical activity of the brain in response to an auditory (click) stimulus is recorded and displayed on a computer screen. First of all, to understand deafness, it is helpful to know how hearing works:
      Sound waves enter the external ear canal and strike the eardrum, which begins to vibrate. This in turn causes vibration of the tiny bones in the middle ear (the ear ossicles). The vibrations set up waves in the fluid of the cochlea, the spiral-shaped structure in the inner ear. The change in pressure ultimately causes movement of the hair cells inside the cochlea that are connected to the auditory nerve. This triggers a nerve impulse via the auditory pathway to the brain. Any interruption in the delivery of sound to the brain results in one of several types of deafness, which may be defined as (1) conductive, (2) sensorineural, (3) congenital versus late onset, (4) inherited versus acquired.

    Deafness is the complete loss of the ability to hear from one or both ears. Deafness may be inherited, or caused by complications at birth, certain infectious diseases, such as meningitis, use of ototoxic drugs, and exposure to excessive noise. Around half of all deafness and hearing impairment can be prevented.

    When Beethoven announced his deafness One of the most surprising facts about Ludwig van Beethoven is that he was deaf. How can a musician, a composer, lack what we would imagine to be his most important sense? The first people he confided in were those who were gorgraphically far from him, but in whom he had absolute confidence: those who lived at Bonn. When he could no longer hide his handicap, Beethoven used notebooks in which visitors could write what they wanted him to know, or equally ask what they wanted to know. Because of this, we lack, of course, the most important part to understanding better his personality: what he replied... Here are some extracts from two letters, dated 1801, in which Beethoven revealed to his friends his increasing deafness. Lettre of Beethoven to Karl Amenda

    Types and Causes of Deafness
    Types of Deafness
    Conductive hearing loss
    occurs when sound vibrations don't go from the air around a person to the moving bones of the inner ear as well as they should. If something is blocking the ear canal, like ear wax, there is a conductive hearing loss. If there is fluid inside the inner ear where the bones are, like the fluid from an inner ear infection, there is a conductive hearing loss. If the bones of the ear get a buildup of calcium, from a disease perhaps, and they can't move as freely as they need to, there is a conductive hearing loss. Generally, conductive hearing loss doesn't cause a total inability to hear, but it does cause a loss of loudness and a loss of clarity. In other words, sounds are heard, but they are weak, muffled, and distorted.
    Neural hearing loss (Nerve deafness) occurs when the auditory nerve, which goes from the inner ear to the brain, fails to carry the sound information to the brain. Neural hearing loss can cause a loss of loudness or a loss of clarity in sounds.
    Mixed hearingloss is a combination of conductive and neural hearing losses.
