Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi this is Dr B and I would be happy to help you with this. There are many things that could potentially cause this behavior but in a young dog like you have the most common cause would be anxiety. I would recommend before having him take drugs potentially for that let's try a more natural approach first. Start giving him 3 mg of melatonin at least 1 hour before bed. If this does not work, then increase up to 6 mg. Do not exceed 6 mg. More than likely the 3 mg will work for him. If this approach does not work then I would recommend that you take him to your veterinarian to make sure he does not have a medical condition causing his behavior. I hope this helps you and him! Sincerely, ***** ***** you have questions you can leave them here and ifI don't get back with you tonight I will by tomorrow night.
