Unless I am thinking of something else, Valtrex is a drug used to control herpes outbreaks in humans (I only know this because commercials are on TV all the time for it) I've never heard of giving it to a cat. On 7/29/07, catatonya [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: I have never heard of Valtrex. A

i wouldn't give ANYTHING to kitty that I didn't know was safe. Some substances can be very toxic. If she has herpes, give Lysine - it's a proven winner. If I were trying to address the FELV visue, what I usually use it Interferon or ImmunoRegulin. Would *NOT* do Valtrex without more

I know people who take Lysine supplements in lieu of taking Valtrex, or another herpes medication, due to the expense of Valtrex and/or aversion to taking too much prescription medication. Lysine supplements work to keep the Herpes Simplex virus at bay (which is what oral Valtrex claims to do) and
