BAER Testing

Brainstem Auditory Evoked Response (BAER Test)

This is a hearing test we offer at our clinic. BAER is currently being used to eliminate or reduce the incidence of genetic expression of deafness from several breeds of dogs. Since deafness is a genetic defect, and since it appears essentially at 2-3 weeks of age, testing the pup anytime after five weeks of age has become an excellent way to identify the auditory status of individual dogs.

When testing we get one of three results:

  1. Normal hearing
  2. Bilateral deafness (both ears)
  3. Unilateral deafness (one ear --often called "unis")

We offer a litter price for puppies or single test price for individual dogs.

We do not use any sedation for this test. Puppies need to be 6 weeks or older when doing a litter or single. Call us for more info or you can check out this link BAER Testing (Hearing Test)
