We recently saw a litter of six snuggly Dogo Argentino puppies for BAER testing with Dr. Jeremy O’Neill.
BAER stands for Brainstem Auditory Evoked Response and is a hearing test that works by using acupuncture size needles and veterinary ear buds to detect the electrical activity in the cochlea and auditory pathways in the brain.
The testing only took a few minutes for each pup, who were held and comforted by our gentle staff members the entire time. Just before their test, the puppies all needed a quick bath as they had gotten messy before they arrived, making for one very eventful day in the neurology department!
If you have any questions about your pet’s hearing or overall health, be sure to contact your primary veterinarian.
