Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. Yes, you can use melatonin in cats. It can help with anxiety and help them sleep. Dosage range for cats is usually 1.5-6 mg every 12-24 hours. If that is not helping, though, I would talk to your vet about prescribing an anti-anxiety medication or even seeing if you can increase the buprenorphine dose. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
