I had a dog that went blind. She did quite well for a number of years. She loved to eat so we figured she wasn't suffering. We had to be careful with gates though. If she didn't encounter a familiar obstacle she would just keeping walking.He is 10. We started noticing it over the last year or so that he would have a hard time locating you if you called him from another room or his ability to sleep through anything like someone coming home (he used to start getting excited when he'd hear the detached garage door open in our last house).
But yesterday I was directly behind him and asked if he wanted a treat several times almost yelling at times with no response when he would normally almost start bouncing with excitement.
It seems he can still hear things like snaps or clapping, but normal voice range seems to be almost completely gone. I feel bad for the guy because it must be very confusing to him.
