One of the things I was told when I was looking for a solution to my dog Charlotte’s pacing all night and distress was that her body could not absorb the valium or the melatonin. And there seems to be a pattern of these dogs not being affected by sedatives. It had something to do with their digestion. I was told something like that. Perhaps you can shed light on this problem, Lena? I would have kept my little dog going if I could have soothed her but it all stopped being absorbed/metabolized or something.

My heart goes out to all of you dealing with this. It’s very emotionally and physically draining from the lack of sleep.
