Deafness

Description: Heritable deafness has been noted in some breed bloodlines, so if her ears are healthy and she's still ignoring you, a more thorough hearing workup may be needed, including brainwave analysis, if indicated. If you suspect she may not be hearing as well as she should, schedule an appointment with your vet right away as the problem could also be caused by a severe ear infection.

What to Watch For: Easily startled, no reaction to unseen sounds.
