Default Melatonin for hair regrowth

I've seen this mentioned a lot lately, and have been very curious about how this actually works. I personally take melatonin, and administer it to Venus as well in times of high anxiety for her. But I had never heard of it helping regrow hair (in animals and humans as I found out). So, in case anyone had more questions about dosage, or how it works, these are some links I found regarding the subject:

I was floored when my vet recommend it but it made sense.

I knew a lady that did ferret rescue & they give melatonin to ferrets for hair regrowth as well. Who da thunk it?
