Believe It Or Not!


Recommended Posts

I had posted a few weeks back that both Teddy and Ollie had substantial hair growth after using 3mg of melatonin after less than 2 months.

 

Some of you asked me for pics, here are a few of Teddy.

 

His neck did not have one hair on it. Not one.

I can actuallu run my fingers though his hair and leave tracks. And, it's the softest, fluffiest, totally unbelievable.

Same here. Roo & Breeze had bald butts, bellies and necks. Both grew hair. Roo has turned into a REALLY woolly beast. It took 1 1/2 months to grow it. I remember looking after a month and there wasn't much change (and was really disappointed) but half a month later it was filled in.

 

You can see Vanna on my siggie. She is very bald. We'll see how she does on it when she gets home.

 

ETA: I slacked up on the Melatonin. Breeze's coat started to thin out. And Roo now has some completely bald spots on her butt. So I am back to giving it religiously.

I went to an every other day basis now.

 

And I did forget to mention if you dog has GI issues, you probably shouldn't use it. It can make it worse. Beau used to have the thickest, lushest coat. But being on high doses of pred for so long has made his hair so very thin. He is a prime candidate for this but I can't use it on him. In the scheme of things with Beau, it just doesn't matter about the hair !!!blush.gif

Wow! Summer has a bald belly (with an improving case of belly blackheads) and bald spots on her butt and thighs. I would like like to try this "melatonin". I see online that you can buy it in tablet form in the stores in the section for people vitamins. Is this what everyone is using?

Carl is almost back to his original naked state as he has blown his coat. I'm hoping it will grow back.

 

I get, got, mine from Target. Though now I will probably have to find it elsewhere until they stop donating to the rabid anti-gay candidate for gov in Minnesota. Very not cool w/me. Time to spend my money elsewhere.

Mine are capsules by "Sundown". 3mg 1 x a day. Let us know. I never would have believed it had I had seen it first hand!

 

Looks amazing!

 

It's alright Beau, you're handsome just the way you are...

I guess I have my answer from reading above, but just to be clear, once you stop giving the melatonin the hair falls out again?

The hair has just shed but come back nicely in normal cycles in the ones I have tried it in- no bald areas have come back.

I don't think so, I think it is different from dog to dog. Claire is still real furry, Carl is more furry than before he took the Melatonin, but had a super seasonal coat blow out. Mine are on it for 4 - 5 days and off for 2 - 3 days per week.

Arrisa got a fluffy tail from her melatonin! It's pretty cute.

 

I'm not giving it right now, but when I do I just toss a tablet in with her evening meal. This probably wouldn't work as well with the pickier dogs, but Arrisa gobbles it right up.

Frankie got incredibly fluffy on melatonin; he is so plush! I actually stopped giving it to him once the weather warmed up because he is so furry, I was afraid it would make the heat worse for him. His coat is still as fluffy as before even though he has been off the melatonin for a few months; and incredibly, he is shedding less this summer than ever before. I also realized that his "new" coat texture is softer and lighter, with more "loft", so in a way, I think it might actually be helping him keep cooler! Very strange stuff... :rolleyes:

I started giving it Camp about 3 weeks ago too after reading it here.... some hair growth around the edges of the bald spots but nothing remarkable - we will keep our hopes up for her though and continue for another couple of months :)

What dosage is everyone using on their greys? JJ gets the bald neck area and I'd like to try it with him.

 

 

3 mg. 1 x a day.

Check after 3 months, not 3 weeks! Too soon! I noticed the difference in mid July which was a full 2 months. So... give it time to work!!!!

Yup! I started using this on my bald dogs a few months ago. Their coat and growth is amazing. I have never had coat growth results from any product like this. I dose twice a day, .5 mg. with dinner or a treat in the morning.

My english bulldog came to us with some bald areas. The vets have never been able to figure out why, not bacterial or fungal etc... I wonder if this stuff would work on her. She's not bothered by the lack of hair she just looks funny and people always want to know what happened, truth is we have NO idea as we adopted her from the shelter this way.

 

Has anyone tried this on NON greyhounds, do you think it would work for a bulldog??

I'll admit I've wondered if it would work on me . . . . I have an about-quarter-size bald spot on the back of my head where it was shaved for minor surgery 20 years ago and for some reason never grew back. Fortunately, the rest of my hair hides it, but I wonder . . . .

Yeah, Linda- I think I can do that! I just went to CVS and bought the only one I could fine! 3mg capsules by Sundown. I bought a bottle of 90. I was giving 1 cap at night with dinner, but now I do every other night because Ollie is starting to look like a Borzoi eek.gif
