Pet Naturals of Vermont L-Lysine Soft Chews for Cats are a lysine supplement to support immune health, including healthy tissue, respiratory, and ocular health in your cat as well as promoting tissue repair and collagen formation. Give 1-2 chews daily. Perfect for multi-cat households, boarding, kittens, and senior cats. Resealable bag contains 60 chews.

Why do cats need L-lysine? It's an amino acid that supports antibody, hormone, and enzyme production, as well as providing antioxidant properties. L-lysine competes in the body with L-arginine, which is the amino acid required by the herpes virus to replicate. The herpes virus (sometimes called feline viral rhinopneumonitis or FVR) is a common cause of upper respiratory and eye problems in cats. L-lysine also supports collagen formation and tissue repair to promote healthy skin.

About Herpes Virus in Cats

The FVR virus is a different strain of herpes than those infecting humans. Cats and humans cannot pass the herpes virus to each other. It is mainly spread when cats share litter boxes or bowls with infected cats, or mutually groom with them. Multi-cat households are especially susceptible to it for these reasons. Mother cats who are infected can also pass the virus on to their kittens.

Infected cats will typically exhibit chronic respiratory symptoms such as sneezing, nasal discharge, and runny eyes. The cat may also develop ulcers around the eyes, drool, lose their appetite, and become lethargic. Stress causes infected cats to "shed" the virus, making symptoms worsen. Flat-faced breeds such as Persians or Himalayans may suffer more severely from it when infected, due to their shortened nasal passages. Many cats are exposed to the virus and are not affected by it. Still others may be latent carriers of it who never exhibit any symptoms but can still infect other cats with it.

If you suspect that your cat is infected with the herpes virus, always get this diagnosis confirmed by your veterinarian before self-medicating. While L-lysine is not harmful to your cat, these symptoms may also indicate other problems and should be properly diagnosed.

Minimum order: 6 bags (1 case)

About OldMaidCatLady.com

We're a small business, founded by a genuine old maid cat lady who loves her cats the same as if they were her children, just like you do yours. All products are shipped directly to you from our suppliers; we don't maintain any inventory. This eliminates double shipping, warehousing and staffing that would drive up costs, allowing us to price our items as reasonably as possible. When it comes to shipping, we charge you only what our suppliers charge us to ship the items to you. Those retailers who offer you "free" shipping are only raising their prices to cover the cost of shipping, and we'd rather be honest with you about it. If our suppliers include shipping in the prices of the items, we offer the same to you. We try to treat all our customers the way we'd like to be treated ourselves, and appreciate your taking the time to get to know us a little.
