Hello. I bought a pill crusher and crushed the tablets.  I gave 1/2 in AM 
sprinkled on small amount of canned food (to make sure they get the entire 
dose) and 1/2 in PM ~ same way. They are 500 mg tablets. Or you can double the 
dose, too. I use Nature Made. The pill crusher I have has a place to store the 
rest of the powder from the pill. I got both at Walgreens. 
OR you can by Viralys (from a vet or online) which is a flavored powder for 
kittys and they love the taste. L-lysine is tasteless so using regular l-lysine 
is not a taste issue.
Good luck. It works miracles here!

  Get it from a nutrition place like GNC, and make sure you get the kind 
without additives.  Most of the stuff you get at drug stores will have -- I 
can't remember the name of the stuff, but it's bad for cats -- added to it.

  Subject: l-lysine

  I've been looking into l-lysine to start giving to Athena - from what I've 
read, it would help. She's periodically got slightly runny eyes (like just eye 
boogers, nothing more) that the vet says could be allergy related but some 
sites I have read said if it clears up with the l-lysine it's something else. 
If we are even considering bringing another cat into the household I want o 
have her as healthy as physically possible.
  Anyone use l-lysine and what form do you use?  I've seen tablets (which I 
would HATE to have to administer) and powder forms... also, any specific 
type/brand to go for that is OK for felines ?

  Generally, what other supplements/therapies do you give consistently to 
non-symptomatic felv+ cats?
