You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

Don't give it a second thought. Melatonin is nontoxic to dogs even when ingested in egregious amounts. Some dogs might transiently vomit. Rico will remain safe. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
