Intense (up to 59 dB SPL) spontaneous otoacoustic emissions are produced by both ears of a young dog. The right ear produces a single, very narrow-band (< 4 Hz) emission at about 9100 Hz. Brainstem evoked-response audiometry suggests that this emission is generated near the transition between normal and abnormal regions of the cochlea.
