Melacutin is a high concentration Melatonin supplement which is used as a sleep aid and also with dogs that suffer with seasonal hair loss. Melatonin is produced by the pineal gland during the hours of darkness and in some animals insufficient production can lead to a lack of normal circadian rhythms.

Melacutin is well tolerated by all dogs and should be fed as one tablet per day for all weights and sizes of dogs. Not suitable for pregnant bitches.

55 Amazing for calming
Verified Purchase

By on 13 March 2021

This product has worked wonders for my elderly terrier who has canine cognitive dysfunction (doggy dementia). This helps her sleep and reduces her anxiety. She now sleeps instead on pacing all night.

45 Selection tablets for dogs
Verified Purchase

By on 14 October 2020

I first bought these tablets for my dog about 8 month's ago. My border collie was not settling at night time after having had a seizure. My dog was happy to eat the poultry tasting tablet and slept soundly! I have since reordered!

55 Miracle Hairy Pill
Verified Purchase

By on 11 May 2020

My miniature dachshund had lost the hair on her chest, stomach, neck and back legs and I was starting to notice the hair at the sides of her head getting thin. She had a full coat before she was spayed at 14 months but it fell out not long after her operation and seemed to be getting progressively worse. I tried Melacutin as I didn’t have anything to loose and I am happy to report that her coat is coming on leaps and bounds. I thought I noticed a difference about a month after starting using Melacutin and now three months later there is a marked difference. The hair on her neck and chest is pretty thick and on her stomach and back legs it is coming but more slowly. We call it her “hairy pill” and she loves eating it as she would a treat. So happy with the results.

55 Sleepless nights no morw
Verified Purchase

By on 23 December 2018

My vet prescribed Circadian for my 11year olds night disturbances but at £30 per week I needed to find a more affordable replacement, which was just as effective. This product which is 1mg stronger than the Curcadin and is just as effective and a quarter of the prescribed men's.

55 works well for my dog who is restless at night
Verified Purchase

By on 20 December 2018

My dog has developed night time senility (sundowners syndrome), pacing and panting etc. this product works well - however it works immediately (for her) and for about 5/6 hours, so timing is everything- i.e. I have to give it to her around 11p.m-making sure she has had her Last Wee Wees beforehand! Her restless symptoms start before this, so I give her a piriton which makes her sleepyish at 5p.m. it is worth experimenting with the times as I think it would be good for dogs on firework night etc. perhaps do a 'practise' run first-as it isn't going to work if your dog is already in panic mode. The dose is one tablet per dog, half doesn't work, I've discovered. It is a nobbily big tablet, so I break it in half and give it to my dog in 2 blobs of shiphams chicken pate- It doesn't seem to have much taste, so could be crumbled in food I would imagine. At last-we are both getting some sleep! At the price for two months supply I think it is good value. or you could simply keep it in for stressful times like firework night.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Melacutin for Dogs, including answers from our team.

My dog has IBD and a highly sensitive stomach. I can see this product is hydrolysed which is great. Is this suitable for him?

  • VioVet Staff

I have contacted Vetruus, the manufacturer, who have advised the following:

_This depends on what your dog is sensitive to, unfortunately we
couldn’t guarantee that the dog would not react although generally the
product is well tolerated and the dose rate is small. _
In that regard the only way to be sure would be for the owner to
try the product on their dog and see if it tolerates it although we
appreciate this may not be preferable.

It is also worth noting that generally this product is only recommended for flank
alopecia or night time anxiety.

Melatonin in old confused dogs

VioVet Visitor

Hello, my dear Lurcher, who is nearly 13, is suffering progressively from confusion and anxiety. I wish to calm her, but not render her unconscious. Do you think this product would be suitable? Thank you. Leah

  • VioVet Staff

Melatonin is most commonly used to treat skin disorders in dogs. It can be used as a sleep aid but it is quite an artifical way to induce sleep. If your dog is suffering from confusion in her senior years then this could be cognitive dysfunction and I strongly recommend you consider using a brain supplement instead. Our own brand RenewMe would work well for this. Giving Melatonin for your particular dog may just cover the underlying issue and not help treat it.

Hi my dog is on vetoryl can melatonin be taken with this drug . She has adrenal cushings. Thankyou

  • VioVet Staff

Vetoryl and Melatonin can be safely used together. Melatonin is used to treat hair loss disorders in dogs, I would advise only using this product alongside your vets advice.

Melacutin & Loxicom?

Julie Leary

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom

Hi, can Melacutin be taken if Loxicom is used daily? Also be used with Senelife?
My 15yr old dog is starting to be unsettled at night & takes a while to sleep. He can sleep in the daytime so Ive tried to keep him awake during the day so hes tired at night but easier said than done!

  • VioVet Staff

It is not unusual for older dogs to become restless at night. Melacutin may be helpful and can be used alongside Loxicom and Senelife. Leaving your dog in a darkened, warm room with the radio on quietly overnight may also be helpful. Failing any improvements you can speak to your vet about stronger prescription medications.

Can melacutin be used along side vitality brewers yeast tablets

Sally Pizey

  • VioVet customer since 2014
  • From: Isle of Wight, United Kingdom

My 4year old wirehaired vizsla was diagnosed with seasonal alopecia last year. It has returned again.Am currently giving him vitality brewers yeast tablets can melacutin be given along side? Also my dog sleeps well .will this product make him lethargic?

  • VioVet Staff

It is possible that your dog will want to sleep more if given this product, though you may not notice this effect. If you do, you might be able to time the administration of medication to coincide with when you want him to sleep anyway. I do not expect there to be any problem giving it alongside brewer's yeast tablets.

Are there any side effects with melacutin? Or if used long term in puppy?

Lorraine Daley

  • VioVet customer since 2014
  • From: Merseyside, United Kingdom

I have 2 puppies and they are awake most of the night . Every single noise disturbs them and then we get disturbed too. Can I use melacutin for them? would it help to settle them ? But I am concerned about side effects especially if I use long term. Any info would be appreciated . Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

I would not recommend this product for puppies. It is more important to establish a regular routine and simply expect them to be left quietly over night. If you pay them any attention when they are playing up at night, they are more likely to be restless as time goes on. You should try and occupy them during the day so that they are tired at night, then leave them to it in a darkened, warm environment. Gentle, quiet background noise (leave a radio on) can be helpful too. They just need to get used to sleeping overnight.
