So i've been having problems with my mini dox losing hair on and off for quite sometime now. Decided it was time for a new vet and a second opinion. This vet ruled out demodex mites which the old vet kept treating him for. New vet then did blood work and we got the results that it isn't a thyroid issue. They are a little stumped as to what it can be. They said it could be an adrenal glad problem/tumor on the gland, but didn't want to start there. Could be horomones but he is neutered so she didn't think it was that. She has READ about a season alopeca problem which she wants to treat for first. The treatment is Melatonin. She recommeneds 3mgs twice a day for 6-8 weeks. I went to buy melatonin and in humans it used as a sleep aid and suggests only one pill before bed. My mini dox is only 15ish lbs and she is suggesting 3mgs twice a day. Anyone have experience with this specific problem or using melatonin? How heavy is your dog and what dose did you give? I have read some topics on here of people giving it to calm dogs, so even with that what doses did you give. Thanks in advance.
