Hi Jacustomer-1tne00j8~


What breed of dog is he?

About how much does he weigh?

Are you sure it was only 3mg?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
He is about 40lb Lab/Bordercollie mix, it was only 1- 3mg pill.

There's nothing to worry about then.


As you can see from this link: , a 3mg dose of Melatonin is a normal dose for a dog with a behavioral problem, so the fact your boy ingested that much shouldn't cause any problems with him at all!!


I hope this helps.
