I'm happy to hear this. Reba has relapsed in some areas with the melatonin and flax. I emailed Doc Oliver and he said I can increase the melatonin for a month and see if that helps but it might over sedate her. (can't tell cause she is an old tired dog anyway) Will give it till January 22 and then may have to start with a rX med. ugh!
