What is Pet Melatonin for Cats?
Melatonin is a naturally-occurring hormone produced in the pineal gland of cats (and other animals), and plays a large role in regulating sleep patterns. It also has a role in the regulation of cortisol production, a hormone secreted in response to stress.
Pet Melatonin is different from melatonin used for human consumption. It is a unique liquid form that makes it ideal to administer to cats in the correct amounts, unlike capsules or tablets. It is synthetically derived and not made from the pineal glands of pigs. A synthetic melatonin ensures safety from viruses or other microbes that can be present in animal tissue.
Pet Melatonin is also not a quick-release or a slow acting form of melatonin. A simple form of melatonin is the ideal way to administer this supplement to a cat, and not quick or slow release. Pet Melatonin is enhanced with natural bacon flavor so it is something your cat will enjoy.
(It is not recommended to give your pet a melatonin supplement made for human consumption, as some of these contain ingredients, such as xylitol, that are toxic to pets.)
What is Pet Melatonin Used For?
Pet Melatonin is a supplement made just for pets. If your cat’s sleep patterns have been disrupted, Pet Melatonin can help to normalize sleep rhythms each time it is given. If your cat is agitated, anxious or restless, Pet Melatonin will help with a restful night’s sleep.
Many cats with hyperthyroidism (high thyroid hormones) tend to exhibit signs of restlessness and have trouble sleeping. Pet Melatonin is ideal for these cats, and is often given with Pet Wellbeing’s Thyroid Support Gold.
Consider giving your cat Pet Melatonin for the following reasons:
- Sleep-wake pattern disruption
- Anxious behavior
- Trauma (fear, anxiety)
- Anxiety from separation
- Cognitive disorder causing confusion/trouble sleeping
A note from our veterinarian...
A primary recommendation for cats who are taking Thyroid Support Gold, is to also administer Pet Melatonin. Some cats will initially experience an increase in relaxation (decreased activity), possible drowsiness and more sleep. This usually stabilizes within about two weeks.
Pet Melatonin can be administered to your cat at a desired bedtime. Usually at night, to a maximum of twice daily.
If your cat is experiencing anxiety and restlessness, you can also use Pet Wellbeing’s Calming Care as a daily supplement.
