My 12 year old dog had a sudden loss of most of her hearing

My 12 year old dog had a sudden loss of most of her hearing about 2 months ago. Vet, new vet, examined ears and said she looks fine, that's it's just aging. Since she has long floppy ears, she has had recurrent ear infections throughout her life. Is there any point in trying antibiotics?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name?Customer: Mojo. She's in good healthalthough last year she had surgeries to remove squamous cell carcinoma on her tongue. Vets even mistake her demeanor and bloodwork for that of a younger dog. She may be a llapsa poo.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Mojo?Customer: Bad cataracts. She's outside a lot. She eats quality kibble. She's on thyroid meds , plus Deramaxx to discourage cancer regrowth.

My dog won't open his mouth. Yelps when he tried to take a treat. Won't even try any more. We tried to look in his mouth, but don't see anything obvious. No swelling or bleeding or broken teeth. Cannot pry his mouth open, he cries like we are torturing him. Just noticed now he looks like he has bells palsy on one side of his face. Looser howl on that side & eye droopy. Help please. Did he have a stroke? 5 year old vizsla, healthy.

My dog had his ears packed to treat an ear infection and now 2 days later it's as though he's completely deaf. Is this a side effect? Will his hearing return? I'm most disturbed by this.
