Hello, my name is***** and I am happy to help. Unfortunately, dog ear canals are very different than human ear canals and a lot of things that work for our ears won't for theirs. If he has not suffered from long standing ear infections, then he does not have wax build up present and the coconut mixture will not help. It is very common in our older pets for their hearing to go. The three bones responsible for vibration (and the ability to hear) develop arthritis and do not vibrate like they should. As your vet mentioned, we do not have great treatments for this.
