Deafness And Vestibular Syndrome Of Dobermans (DVDob, DINGS)
This disease affects the hearing and balance mechanisms of the inner ear. Affected puppies exhibit signs of vestibular disease such as mild head tilt and poor balance; these signs can often progress with age. Deafness is definitively diagnosed by auditory testing (BAER test).
DINGS is characterized by bilateral deafness and vestibular disease and is known to occur somewhat frequently in the Doberman Pinscher.
