Do you have a new pup or older dog in the family? Was New Years Eve filled with whines as your little “mans best friend” hid under the bed out of fear? Or does your dog have patches of fur falling out? If yes then melatonin supplements might help.
These supplements come in a few forms. These include tablets, liquids, capsules or powder. Plain tablet form is the most recommended for dogs simply hide it in their food. This supplement “kicks in” with in 10-15 minutes and can last eight hours. This can be given when dog is anxious or for long period of time under direction of your vet.
The benefits of melatonin include:
- Help with insomnia without causing drowsiness
- Helps puppies who have sensitive hearing deal with “scary” noises
- Can help regrow fur
If your puppy or old timer have these few issues speak with your veterinarian about melatonin supplements. If they agree to try this medication check out World Wide Labs for an all natural option.
