For the last 5 weeks, our little guy has been waking and whining throughout the night. His mama and daddy are tired! We took him to the vet and he checked out fine. Even ran some labs. In a human, I would treat this with magnesium and GABA. What would the dosage be for dogs? To be specific, our guy is 12 lbs. Anything else that might help? The vet gave us sedatives, which don't work and I don't like using. I have tried melatonin and lavender essential oils.
