Hello,
This is Dr. Christian. I'd like to help. Would say that he is otherwise doing well other than his vision and hearing loss?

Shall I just leave him as he is
Expert:  Dr. Christian K. replied 3 years ago.
I have plenty of patients that are blind and deaf and they manage to do very well. As long as he is otherwise healthy then I don't believe putting a deaf/blind dog to sleep is necessary. I'd be more concerned if he had some other problems such as vomiting, weight loss, loss of appetite, etc. If you have more questions please reply back.
