In celebration of #NationalDogDay, Max wants to remind you to keep your hearing aids away from your pets! For fun, check out our article on hearing aids and pets.
If you've been a client of ours, we think you'll know that we LOVE dogs around here. I can't remember many times in my life where I didn't have at least one dog in the household. On special days, you may catch my dogs hanging out in the office with me!
That said, there are some things dog and all pet owners should know about owning pets and caring for your hearing aids. Your hearing aids are an investment in your hearing health. Whether or not you covered the cost of your hearing aids, or your insurance did, you don't want to find yourself in a position where you have to replace them. Don't let your hearing aids become a pet toy!
How to avoid a costly mistake!
The easiest way to avoid turning your hearing aids into your dog's chew toy is to keep them out of reach of your pets. Be sure to have a designated spot for your hearing aids while you're not wearing them. For example, put them on the charger or, in their case, and never leave them on a reachable tabletop or nightstand.
What do I do if something happens to my hearing aids?
If the worst happens, don't worry. You likely have options or possibility warranties to use, and we're here to help you navigate that and get back to your full hearing potential. Just give us a call and schedule an appointment. Note: we may ask to see a picture of your furry friend :)
