    What are sleeping pills for dogs?

    Generally, when we think about sleeping pills, the first thing that comes to mind is melatonin.

    Melatonin

    Melatonin for dogs can be found in treats and melatonin supplements made specially for them.

    Melatonin is a hormone that is found both in humans and dogs.

    Although melatonin is considered safe, it is still a strong hormone that can cause irritability.

    Even though melatonin is available over the counter, you should always speak with your vet to determine the correct dosage. 

    4 Natural ways to help your dog sleep

    Now that we've discussed Calming Chews and sleeping pills, let's take a look at other ways to help your dog sleep and relax.

    1. Provide a secure place to sleep

    Just like a nice mattress, a nice calming dog bed can go a long way. Provide your dog a stable and secure place to sleep that can become part of their bedtime routine. They'll surely thank you for it!

    2. White noise

    We love using white noise in our bedroom, and your dog may benefit too. One of the reasons us humans love our noise machines is its ability to mask other noises. This will do the same for your dog, and maybe even help with noise phobias!

    3. Exercise

    This one may seem obvious, but wear your dog out! This can also help them get into a routine by setting certain times of the day where they can go on a walk with you. You can also try new and exciting exercises - like swimming!

    4. Try calming music for dogs

    Looking for a new way to relieve your dog's separation anxiety or restlessness? Look no further than Xen Pets' dog calming music.

    Just put the video on the big screen, turn up the volume, and let your dog enjoy the relaxing music and rest easy.

      What medicine will make a dog sleep?

      Medicine like melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone. It has the ability to help dogs in many ways, even helping with anxiety by promoting sleep.

      Melatonin for dogs can be found in treats and melatonin supplements made specially for them.
