Heard of it, and it is WAAAY too expensive. You can buy a pound of powder lysine for about $15, it is made by NOW and sold in many online places.. That would give you about 1644 250mg doses. It has no taste and mixed with wet food just about any cat will just eat it. It is really sort of granulated and some of mine don't like the feel so I dissolve it in a tiny bit of water.
