@CCandMurray My dogs get a "snack" before bed. A little bit of their dog food with 2 tbsps of yogurt. I just put the pill in the yogurt. They suck up anything!
Coconut oil may help. As you can see I am not expert,as Maude still has bald! The other's didn't get like that-just black under the hair-no hair loss, but they were getting Melatonin BEFORE the SFA appeared. No effects at all on stomach. A bath will not cause hair loss, but it will remove hair that is loose.
Some vet said to use nioxin shampoo(for people with hair loss)-but I only read that somewhere. I use Dawn dish incase there are fleas hiding!
