So I already have lysine for myself, and I was wondering if anyone uses the "human" lysine for their cats? I read that people do do that, but I wanted to double check on safety, and get some more information. Thanks everyone!

I use human grade. The only difference, between, the two,
Is, they, put flavoring, in, for the cats.
As long as it's 100% pure. It's fine.
I researched it before I bought it.
I use this.

Hey guys! Mine may not work, the listed ingredients include: L-Lysine, Cellulose (plant origin), Silica, Vegetable Stearic Acid, and Magnesium Stearate. I am not sure about the effects of those ingredients for cats?

@Shontae you want to give your sphynx 100% pure L-Lysine. I do buy the one for cats by Viraly's. It's for cats only because it has a fishy taste and smell to "invite" them to like it sprinkled on their food.

You certainly can use L-Lysine for humans, but not the one that you listed all those other ingredients.
