Safety Tips for Caring for a Deaf Pet

1. Have your pet wear an ID tag that reads, "(pet's name) is deaf," along with your name and phone number.
2. Train your pet with hand signals.
3. Keep pet leashed when outside home. 4. Enroll in obedience class. To determine if your pet is deaf: If you are concerned your pet may be deaf, take him or her to the veterinarian for a baer (brainstem auditory evoked response) test to determine extent of hearing loss.
