Hearing in German Shepherds

If you think your German Shepherd may be having trouble hearing, give your vet a call to schedule a checkup. Dogs are typically born deaf. Puppies do not begin to hear until they are about 21 days old. Studies show that by the time a dog has fully developed his hearing, he can hear about four times the distance of a human with normal hearing. In addition, dogs can hear higher pitches than humans. Dogs often bark at electronics such as vacuums because they hear the high pitch noise coming from the motor. A dog can detect a frequency range of 67 to 45,000 Hz whereas a human can only detect a range of 64 to 23,000 Hz. Dogs are able to move their ears in the direction of sound to hear better. Like humans; however, dogs also tend to lose their hearing as they age. Talk with your veterinary clinic Frisco, TX to learn more.
