How Melatonin Works

In humans, dogs, and other animals, melatonin plays an important role in the regulation of the sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin is naturally produced by the body in the pineal system. In healthy animals, peak production of melatonin naturally occurs after sunset. Melatonin signals to the body both time of day and season (length of night). However natural production decreases as we and our pets age. This is one reason older people and pets find it difficult to get quality sleep or to sleep for as many hours as when we were younger.

Melatonin Health Benefits

Supplementing with melatonin can be highly beneficial, as melatonin is a well-known antioxidant useful in regulating hormones and may reduce stress and anxiety.

Melatonin decreases sex hormone secretion, modulates aromatase activity, and inhibits cortisol production. It has also been shown in some animal models to inhibit androgen production and ovarian activity.

Melatonin’s anti-estrogenic properties have been extensively studied.

Melatonin acts in several ways to limit estrogen production and/or activities, including by interfering with estrogen receptor activities, downregulating estrogen expression during transcription, reducing estrogen receptor sensitivity, and inhibiting the expression of key enzymes (like aromatase) involved in estrogen production. 

In addition, melatonin has been shown not only to inhibit cortisol itself, but also the chemical (ACTH) that signals the adrenal gland to produce cortisol.

Studies have shown melatonin can reduce symptoms of stress in canines, including refusal to eat, excessive pacing or panting, whimpering, and licking. Melatonin may also help reduce aggressive behavior in dogs. Because the body responds to stress by producing additional cortisol, the reduction in stress, anxiety and aggression that results from melatonin supplementation may have a secondary effect (beyond the direct effects noted above) of lowering cortisol levels.

Directions for Dogs

The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine recommends, and the late Dr. Jack Oliver, DVM, former Chairman of UTK’s Veterinary Endocrinology Department, recommended:
  • 3 mg of melatonin (1 tablet) every 12 hours for dogs under 30 lbs.
  • 6 mg of melatonin (2 tablets) every 12 hours for dogs over 30 lbs.
  • 1 mg of melatonin (you may cut the tablet in half) every 12 hours may be recommended for dogs 10 lbs. or less, or for those who want to give their dogs very low doses of melatonin.

Melatonin may also help anxious dogs by reducing stress hormone levels. For this use, give 1 serving 30 minutes before stressful event.

Note: Always consult your physician or veterinarian before giving melatonin to your dog. For treatment of dogs, you should not use a rapid release melatonin or a timed-release melatonin. Use only regular melatonin. All of our melatonin products fit these criteria.

My Dog Loves Them and so do I

I give these to my 12 year old Havanese because the vet suspects she has Cushings Disease. After spending $2000 on vet bills for testing and meds without positive results we said, ”NO MORE!” I researched homeopathic treatments and Melatonin is one that is mentioned in quite a few articles. So we decided to try them (along with a couple of others) in case she does have the disease. She is a notoriously bad pill taker but the smell and beef flavor of these is something she seems to like and she eats them without more than a minor sniff now. She is not showing any signs of the disease so it’s hard to know if these are helping keep it at bay, but they aren’t hurting her so I am very pleased.
