He will probably eat it ok but if he doesn't, just dissolve it in a little 
bit of water and put it on the dry food.  If he will eat the dry food 
without it, he will eat it with dissolved lysine, at least I have never had 
one refuse to eat it.  Some of mine did refuse to eat it before I dissolved
