Hello, I'm Dr Gary. I've been practicing veterinary medicine since 2007. I look forward to helping with your questions/ concerns.

Melatonin is very safe in dogs. This small amount is not going to cause any sort of adverse effects. If anything, it'll help her sleep tonight. No worries here!

Take care, and let me know if you have any other questions/ concerns.
