Editor’s note: In this retrospective study, 317 cases of sleep aid medication toxicosis in dogs were examined over a period of 6 years. The most common sleep aid ingested was zolpidem (75.7%), followed by eszopiclone (19.5%) and zaleplon (4.7%), all three of which are non-benzodiazepines. Of the 317 dogs, 36.6% were symptomatic, whereas 63.4% remained asymptomatic.
