Our family dog Mandy went deaf last year after radiation and we can tell it's upsetting her-we're considering a vibrating collar to help her interact and relearn 'come' and things like that-what do you think?
He was born deaf, the white American Pit Bull Terrier
We are planning to get a vcollar to teach him recall.
I am not quite sure there is much to do to help them cope, if they go deaf randomly I can see that being traumatizing. I think just showing her its ok and not babying her too much will help
