I have had my dog for sixteen years and I noticed her itching her ears so I put some ear mite medicine in them. That was three days ago. Ever since then she does not react to any noises. I have to walk right up to her to get her attention to follow if I am trying to get her to go with me. I have never had a dog live this long. Is this normal for an old dog losing their hearing or does it sound like the ear mite medicine might have affected her ears? Any comments would be very helpful. Thanks :sad: :confused: P.S. When I put the ear mite medicine in she didn't act like it burned. As if she didn't have any mites in her ears and she has quit pawing at her ears.
