Forgot to mention, I do this twice a day. I've always read and heard
that the standard dosage of Lysine for an adult cat is 250-500 mg
twice a day. I usually start off with 500 and reduce at some point to
250 before stopping it completely. It's an amino acid which counters
the effect of the amino acid, Arginine, which is needed by the Herpes
virus to replicate and be active. If it's Herpes causing the problem,
I usually see a result pretty quickly - within a couple of days things
start getting better.

I 've been using a mixture of water or aloe vera, powdered Lysine,
Vitamin C (the stuff for cats), and colostrum. I have a bottle with
lysine and Vit C powder in it. I use about 500 mg lysine, probably
200 or so of Vit C (for me 1/4 tsp of the powder mix), and a capsule
(opened) of colostrum. Mix it with water or Georges Aloe Vera,
suck all or part into an oral syringe, and give it gently to the
cat. For my cat, with both an eye problem and stomatitis, it's
worked well, fingers crossed...

Little Milli is getting better. She still has diahrea to some
degree but it's getting better. Her URI is getting much better
although she still coughs and sneezes a bit.
One of the other FeLV+ Cami has a very very stubborn URI. Initially
on injectable antibiotics he got better really quick and then has
been sliding downhill ever since. We've tried several antibiotics
and he still is very sick. His mucus is green (sorry to be so
graphic). Any ideas about what other antibiotics we can try? He's
been on Zithromycin, Chlorapalm, Baytril & PLX injectable combo. He
responds for a bit but then it gets bad again. He is a beautiful
sweet, sweet orange and white cat with the most luxurious coat I've
ever seen. He is an absolute sweetheart. He's approx 2 yrs old. I
have been syringe feeding him Recovery food mixed with multi
vitamin, B complex, Omega oils, L-Lysine, Collostrum. I'm still
waiting for the Transfer Factor and the Interferon alpha.
