Q. My dog got into a horse tranquilizer a week ago.. He is now deaf and blind.. His hearing seems to be getting slightly better, he is eating normal.

A. I'm very sorry to hear that this has happened to your dog. Sometimes neurological damage can be repaired by the body but it is a very slow process. I cannot tell you if your dog will regain any sight but it sounds like he is making some progress. A neurologist may be able to give you better insight. Fingers crossed for a good outcome.
