What is Pet Melatonin?
Melatonin is a naturally-occurring hormone produced in the pineal gland of dogs (and other animals), and plays a large role in regulating sleep patterns. It also has a role in the regulation of cortisol production. In dogs, melatonin supplementation has been shown to target the adrenal cells and the amount of cortisol they make. This may support normal hair growth, normal appetite and urination in dogs. It has been shown that having a consistent level of melatonin in the body can help support balanced cortisol output by the adrenal glands. Melatonin inhibits some of the enzymes needed for the body to produce more cortisol.
Pet Melatonin is different from melatonin used for human consumption. It is a unique liquid form that makes it ideal to administer to dogs of all sizes 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 dog, and not quick or slow release. Pet Melatonin is enhanced with natural bacon flavor so it is something your dog will enjoy.
What is Pet Melatonin Used For?
Pet Melatonin is a supplement made just for dogs. Animal studies have shown promising results supplementing melatonin to animals for adrenal support. By supporting the adrenals to be balanced, with normal cortisol production, dog owners report normal hair growth, less stress, normal energy levels and normal appetite and urination in their dogs.
For dogs who experience anxiety for any reason (such as separation anxiety), melatonin is often the key to helping dogs maintain less stress in their day.
Pet Melatonin can also assist dogs if normal sleep patterns need to be achieved.
To recap, Pet Melatonin can help with:
- Normal cortisol production by the adrenal glands
- Normal hair growth
- Regular appetite and urination
- Anxiety from separation and less stress
- Anxiety due to things like loud noises
- Sleep patterns
A note from our veterinarian...
A primary recommendation for dogs who are taking Adrenal Harmony Gold, is to also administer Pet Melatonin. Some dogs will initially experience an increase in relaxation (decreased activity) and more sleep. This usually stabilizes within about two weeks.
As mentioned, the daily administration of Pet Melatonin (and thus a constant level in the bloodstream) is what helps to target the cells of the adrenal gland and cause more normal cortisol production.
As a third recommendation, look for a reputable supplier of lignans. The perfect combination to supporting dog adrenals is:
- #1 Adrenal Harmony Gold
- #2 Pet Melatonin
- #3 Lignans
Make sure your dog receives a diet high in nutrients. A supplement like SPARK Daily Nutritional Supplement contains nutrients and superfoods from whole food sources, along with probiotics and enzymes for overall good health, immunity and energy.
