This sounds like what I am going through with Junior. He is now off
antibiotics and getting chlorpheneramine to relieve congestion. He is about
the same after a month. I think his is herpes as well. He also has the eye
crud typical of herpes. He has been receiving L Lysine for over a year. I
can only assume it slows the herpes virus down.

A little over a month ago I decided to change his canned catfood. He is now
eating Blue Buffalo Spa Selects. He likes the fishy kinds the most. He was
having issues with his coat and this was a test to see if it helped. His fur
was all over the house and always came out in clumps. I am happy to report
he is no longer losing fur in clumps. His coat is still scruffy as my vet
calls it, but I think that is more a grooming issue. Before he was on canned
IAMS. He still free feeds on IAMS multicat. I have several porkers in the
house, I was hoping this would help. Not sure it has made any difference
other than the catfood bill going up. I need to weigh one of them to see.

A very nasty day here in VA. Hope everyone is warm.
