Mya is new arrival to Merit and we will update information as we learn more about her. Mya is a deaf pittie, but we are having her fitted for hearing aids!! Here's a little of her back story ...
Mya recently came to Merit after a desperate plea for rescue was made, a deaf dog in dire need. She was in boarding at Stokesdale Veterinary Hospital for three weeks before one of our volunteers was able to take her into foster care. Kathryn, Mya's foster mom, is a hearing aid specialist and has been researching hearing loss in dogs. After spending a long two weeks working with Mya, Kathryn has observed that Mya can hear but she can't find where the sounds are coming from. This is an indication that Mya might have a more severe hearing loss in one ear. Without the specialized equipment needed to test Mya's hearing, Kathryn has made the assumption that Mya's right ear is the ear with the worse hearing loss. Mya is always sitting with her back to a wall or corner and she might do this to help reduce background noise and localize sounds better.
