PALUMBO, Mariana Isa Poci; RESENDE, Luiz Antonio de Lima; MACHADO, Luiz Henrique de Araújo  y  BORGES, Alexandre Secorun. Auditory evoked potential to diagnose of bilateral deafness in two dogs. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2012, vol.42, n.3, pp. 494-497. ISSN 0103-8478.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84782012000300017.

The brainstem auditory evoked potential is a noninvasive electrodiagnostic test allowing an objective assessment of the hearing status, by capturing the electrical activity of the auditory system, from the middle ear to the brainstem, generated after a specific sound stimulus is performed. The use of this test is not common in animals in Brazil. Therefore, the objective of this study is to report the diagnosis of bilateral deafness in two mongrel dogs, using the brainstem auditory evoked potential.
