Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Veterinarians: Dogs, too, can experience hearing loss

(University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, News Bureau) Just like humans, dogs are sometimes born with impaired hearing or experience hearing loss as a result of disease, inflammation, aging or exposure to noise.
