    What is Vetri-Lysine Plus?
    Vetri-Lysine Plus is a chicken liver flavored soft chew that contains L-Lysine, an amino acid that helps control herpes in cats. Along with the ingredient DMG, Vetri-Lysine Plus helps support immune system functioning, collagen formation and tissue repair. The chews are soft and bite-sized, so even kittens can eat them.
    Find Vetri-Lysine at PetMeds for Cat Herpes
    For: Cats and Kittens
     
    Benefits:
    Contains L-Lysine which helps control cat herpes
    Made in the USA
    Supports immune system functioning
    Supports collagen formation and tissue repair
    Small, easy-to-eat, chicken flavored, bite-sized soft chews
    Supports antibody and Lymphocyte production

    How it works:
    Vetri-Lysine Plus contains two active ingredients, L-Lysine and DMG, both of which support the immune system. L-Lysine is an amino acid that supports antibody, hormone and enzyme production. L-Lysine also helps control feline herpes, due to its ability to compete with L-Arginine, the amino acid which is required by the herpes virus to replicate. Along with L-Lysine, Vetri-Lysine Plus also contains DMG, which is a metabolite that is naturally produced by your pet's body in small amounts to support the immune response.

    Cautions:
    For animal use only. Keep out of the reach of children and animals. Safe use in pregnant animals or animals intended for breeding has not been proven. If your pet's condition worsens or does not improve, stop product administration and consult your veterinarian.

    Old & Young liked it right away We have a cat who is over 8 years old, and we also have a young boy (almost 3 years). They both get very excited when I bring out the bag. I usually give one twice a day to each of them, and they both come running. The older one (without infections) seems more peppy and brave. We got the young one from Humane Society, and obviously, he had the herpes virus. He got really sick right away, and infected our very old cat (at the time). Worst part of a new kitten, is that they ALL seems to have that virus now. Literally: at least around here (WI). Causes major respiratory infections, asthma symptoms, runny green goo from eyes and with lots of sneezing. We'd get him healed up, and he'd get sick all over again from the smallest stressors. Now, he's got much more energy and not every stressor brings on a viral UR infection (like Dad going out of town for two days for work). Very worth it. Third darling cat doesn't like it, but she doesn't eat any kind of cat treat: ever. 10/09/2014
    This really works! I have been giving this to my kitten ever since vet recommended it due to his upper respiratory & eye infections and possibility he has autoimmune issue(herpes). After getting infections under control w/ antibiotics vet suggested Lysine be continued on a daily basis. I didn't realize how much the Lysine was doing until I ran out for a few days and my cat began to show signs of yet another eye infection! Needless to say, I won't run out again! 07/31/2014
    Before meal 'treat' Vet recommended L-Lysine for her weak immune system and skin reactions (hypoallergenic food too). While it's too soon to say, I have seen a reduction in sneezing, the snot being clear and water-y, instead of thick and green, and less itching/scratching. Plus, no recurrence of her bad ear infections. The trick is, to give it to them before you feed them anything else, otherwise picky cats like mine, will ignore it for the other food. Otherwise, she excitedly ran to me when I opened the bag, as opposed to the gel, which made her flee. It's kind of hard for her to break it down at times, but she's never choked and I bet it's beneficial for dental care like the dry food hardness. I preferred the ingredient list of this brand to the other dry supplement sold. 04/22/2014
    good product These chews have been great! My cat loves the taste, which is good since they are hard for him to chew. They have helped with his chronic upper respiratory infections. Unfortunately, we adopted him with an URI, after 3 rounds of antibiotics the vet said she couldn't give him any more, so she recommended Lysine. This is much better then grinding up pills. He still gets sick but it's not as bad and it's short term. 07/21/2013
    Great for feline herpes Like another reviewer, I bought a sphynx kitten who evidently had been medicated so as not to show her respiratory condition during the 5 hour drive home. Once in the house she wouldn't stop sneezing covering everything around with . . . Yuck. Vet said infection and went on 2 courses of antibioticswhich didn't work. I researched and found Lysine also smashing pills or powder version. Thank goodness for this product Miss B is now 1 happy sneezeless, hairless cat! 06/03/2013

    Answer: 
    I assume you have a cat with herpes, like mine. There will always be some discharge (as told to me by my vet). After about 2 weeks of taking the vitamins it should be at a minimum however. When needed (about once a week), I use a warm wet wash cloth and clean his eyes for him.

    Answer: 
    Lysine is an amino acid that helps support the immune system. It may not be needed in your situation if your cats are healthy and have a good immune system already. You should ask your veterinarian if he/she thinks its necessary.

    Answer: 
    It certainly should be! Obviously, I haven't met your cat, but it has helped a lot with my own (3) cats' immune responses. Their immune systems were weakened from Upper Respiratory Infections as youngsters - they all seemed to have had feline herpes virus when we brought them home (separate litters, and one from the local Humane Society). Especially our youngest (age 3) gets stressed by any change or any of us being out-of-town, and will quickly develop a URI or even UTI. This has helped him a great deal with that!
