Do they make hearing aids for cats?

My cat is losing his hearing as he gets older, I was thinking of getting him a hearing aid but am not even sure if they make them.

Yes, they actually do! However this can be expensive and many cats just will not tolerate the presence of the hearing aid in their ear canal. Some animal health insurances do cover the expense. Be aware that a hearing aid will not assist an animal that already has total deafness.

Yes they do make hearing aids for cats. There is a vet that has developed a devise that can be placed in the animals inner ear. The cat will not even know that it is there. But the only down side to it is that this devise can only help cats that are partially deaf not completely deaf.
