Hello, my name is***** and I would like to assist with your concern. I am sorry to hear about the hard time your dog is having. There are two additional things you can try at home to help her sleep. Both are very safe for dogs. The first is melatonin. It is naturally produced by our bodies (and theirs) to induce a normal sleep cycle. Supplementing with extra melatonin allows for better rest. For a dog her size, she would get between 3-6 mg before bed. Another option is to try benadryl as it has the side effect of sedation. She would receive 50 mg of this. Please let me know when you return so we can discuss this further.
