    you can get a pound of the powdered form, from NOW, which is a 
well-respected brand of health-store products for $7.99, on line. no mess, no 
fuss--even at retail in a store, it's $14.99/lb. that works out to something 
like 456 doses.....

        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.

          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?
