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! Laurie ----- Original Message ----- From: Rosenfeldt, Diane To: firstname.lastname@example.org Sent: Thursday, February 28, 2008 9:36 AM Subject: RE: l-lysine
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.

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? -- Beth Gouldin [EMAIL PROTECTED] 940.395.5393 God Bless!!!
