thanks.  i'll keep crushing till I can get to the store and buy the plain old

  It's more expensive than buying the tablets yoursefl and crushing them.
  It's powder form so easy to use for multiple cats and has chicken flavoring. 
I confess I use it sometimes to get my Coco to eat. She is an on again off 
again eater. Ingredients: L-lysine in a platable flavor base.
