She ate about 8-10...

She ate about 8-10 melatonin that were 5 mg each - is she in danger?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

about 55 lbs
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Thanks

We do not have to worry about anything here

Even at much higher doses we would not see any toxicity

I hope that helps!

are you going to give me any information?
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
the site indicates that you can online chat if you give your credit card number and "$5.
are you saying that actually there is no help for the $5 as indicated?
and that if i want info i have to pay $28?
i.e. $33 dollars is required to get any information?
if so, then the web site shouldn't falsely claim that.
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

What additional information would you like?

The amount of Melatonin ingested does NOT pose a health risk to your dog

No treatment is required?

Would have cost you 65.00 and a long time on hold to access the Poison Control center

I have answered your questions and solved your problem

And at 11:00PM at night and within several minutes

You are welcome
