I dont know what type of L-lysine I should get.. gel form,powder,or pill? which one is better and how much do I give Gremlin he is 15 weeks?
Most people use about 250 ml -500 ml sprinkled over food, 250 ml being the most common for a "maintenance" type dose and 500 ml if your kitty has symptoms of a cold or herpes flare up (see your vet for anything over 500 ml). They also make treats with Lysine as well.I dont know what type of L-lysine I should get.. gel form,powder,or pill? which one is better and how much do I give Gremlin he is 15 weeks?
Yep! The little dosing scoop is 250 ml. Right now I'm giving Giz two a day because he's a kitten and their immune systems can be lower - which may not be necessary, but after losing one baby to an illness, I'm using what I can to try to keep this one. Once Gizmo hits adulthood, I'll probably lower his to once a day unless he has cold symptoms. I give Ash two a day because of his heart condition. He's had a history of slow recoveries to illnesses so I use the higher dose on him as an additional prevention measure. The rest of the kitties just get one scoop.Most people use about 250 ml -500 ml sprinkled over food, 250 ml being the most common for a "maintenance" type dose and 500 ml if your kitty has symptoms of a cold or herpes flare up (see your vet for anything over 500 ml).

Lysine is also used as an immune booster besides helping with feline herpes, they sell treats as well with lysine to help keep a promote a healthy immune system. http://www.sphynxlair.com/f53/sphynx-feline-herpes-l-lysine-3217/wait... is L-Lysine ONLY useful for cats with feline herpes? or is in useful in genral as well? '
If my cat isn't around other cats, isn't infected with herpes, and L-Lysine is mainly effective only for the herpes virus, then I would rather not include extranious items that aren't useful to her.
LOL. This is about where I feel I am at. Taking so many notes right now and then I'll ask questions. So glad this forum exists.LYSINE
I am just wondering do I have to give Lucy lysine? What is it for and what does it do? I want to make sure I have this for when I get my sweet girl. If there is anything else that I must have please let me know. I trust all of you. I have the coconut oi I have the good wash and ear cleaner but I want to know about all the MUST have items. Thanks everyone you all have been so great.
Yes, for what we are discussing, they are the same thingIs lysine the same as L-lysine?
I have a kitten the same age that I just brought home a couple weeks ago. He was sick when we got him Went to vet got antibiotics, next week he got an eye ulcer! Been at vet every other day, really stressfull and sad. Testing monday for feline herpes. This is our first sphynx. I have been reading on here about this lysine, does anything think I should go get some and try it over the weekend to see if it makes any difference in my baby?? His name is Spartacus by the way, I call him Sparti and we love him no matter what his little snot nose coughing crazy eye turns out to be.
