Recommended Dosage for Dogs
For Cortisol Reduction:
Melatonin should be kept at a constant level in the body and should be given twice a day.
For dogs less than 30 lbs, give 3 mg of melatonin every 12 hours.
For dogs over 30 lbs, give 5-6 mg of melatonin every 12 hours.
Some vets may recommend 1 mg of melatonin every 12 hours for dogs under 10 lbs, or for people who want to give their dog a low dosage of melatonin.
Use the above mentioned dosage recommendations and give 1 tablet or capsule 30-60 minutes before the stressful event.
