BAER Hearing Test

Comprehensive Deafness Testing for Your Pet

St. Francis Animal Hospital of Columbia is one of the few testing centers in the area which offers the BAER hearing test to determine potential deafness, brain stem disease, or middle ear disease.

  • BAER test for 1 patient - $110

  • BAER test for 2 patients - $90 per patient

  • BAER test for 3 or more patients - $65 per patient


Hearing Evaluation

The BAER test is ideal for identifying deafness in breeds predisposed to hearing loss, which are:

  • Australian Cattle Dog

  • Australian Shepherd

  • Bull Terrier

  • Catahoula Leopard Dog

  • Dalmatian

  • English Cocker Spaniel

  • English Setter

Each ear is tested independently, and puppies which are deaf in one ear can still pass on the gene for deafness. If you're a breeder, you should not use a partially deaf dog in breeding programs.

We can schedule appointments to test an entire litter in one visit, and there is no office visit charge! Sedation, if necessary, is $20 per patient.

  • "This place is beyond phenomenal. I have taken my cat here for years and we always received loving care that is sometimes desperately needed. Unfortunately my cat did pass last year, but they were here with us until the very end. If I ever get another furry companion I'll be sure to be back."
