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.
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.
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.
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 baby has Cushings and giving him the melatonin 2 times a day does wonders for him.
