Customer Question
My dog ate 5...

My dog ate 5 mg of melatonin with xylitol it it. She is healthy and 5 years old. What do we do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is your dog's name and age?

I just gave that to you

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?
