May be good, too bad my cat won't eat it I tricked her the first time, by adding a few pieces of her preferred dry food (Anergen), but after that she ran away every time I'd try to give it to her. Even leaving it on top or mixed into, her dry food, was not effective as she just moved the offending piece to the floor. I returned it (got a prompt reply and easy shipping back too) and got the Vetri-Lysine Soft Chews instead, which she always eats (even eagerly, at times). I tried it myself (!) and it really has a maple-esque flavor...I'm not sure I can rate it for effectiveness or taste for the cat, as it was too short a time-frame of use for me to tell. Give this a try is all I can advise to those unsure. 04/22/2014
My 13 year old cat gets this every day - I give him the recommended daily dose of two 1/4 tsps and I simply squeeze a 1/4 tsp amt on my index finger and hold his little head while asking him to open his mouth and I just swipe it in - he smacks it down and can't do without it or his sneezing and runny nose starts back .... this is great stuff and my vet recommended it.....and so do I - it beats a regular vet bill..... 01/29/2014
This product is easy to use I started my cat on this two months ago and he has been healthier and happier in last month than since I first got him...when he was in full Herpes outbreak...sneezing, wheezing, coughing, runny nose and eyes. The gel is very easy to give in a syringe in his mouth. Magic just takes it then acts like nothing happened. And now, in the last month, he has only sneezed a couple of times, coughed maybe once and no discharge from his eyes. You have to give it about a month to start seeing any changes. I am very happy with this product. And ease of ordering. 12/04/2013
great if your kitty likes it! It took several days for her to warm up to it, and I had to pretend to eat it myself to get her interested, but once my finicky little feline decided to sample this gel, she LOVED it. I simply squeeze it into a teaspoon and she eats it right up. She'll even ask for it if it's late and I haven't given her her daily dose. With Lysine, she's perky, energetic, bright-eyed and lively. Without it, she's a drippy-nosed little bundle of sad. 09/27/2013
my vet told me that my cat would be on this medicine for the rest of hs life. its so much cheaper to buy it this way..... 04/01/2013

We have a ten-year-old spayed female longhair cat who has had chronic URIs since kittenhood. The vet told us when we got her that there was no cure, and all we could do was provide supportive care. She has a bout about every 18 months, but as she's getting older, it's taking her longer to bounce back. She eats and drinks and eliminates normally, has no discharge from eyes or nose, but she breathes heavily, especially when she purrs, and coughs occasionally. Would this product help? Are there other products we could try? At the moment, vet care is beyond our means, but we want to do the best we can for her.

Answer: 
I give my cat Viralys for Herpes twice a day and it took about a month on it before I saw results. He's sneezed maybe twice on 2nd month being on it, he's stopped wheezing, except when he plays too hard. But that doesn't even slow him down. His eyes look good, minor, very minor, nose dripping once in awhile. I'd say my cat is doing better than I've ever seen him do since I acquired him. No new outbreak since starting Viralys. I'd at least try it. I give him 1.25ml twice a day in a syringe which he takes just fine. Good luck!

Answer: 
Viralys is more specifically to help with Herpes infection, it may be useful for your cat by helping to boost her immune system but as your veterinarian mentioned you will mainly have to do supportive care for her.

My 11 year old just had a good physical and I forgot to mention her gagging when she purrs. I was reading about the L-Lyzine may help her. Thanks for any help.

Hi. If L-Lisene was recommended I'd try it. It's easy to give in syringe. My cat is on it for Herpes and I've seen him feeling better than he's felt since I've had him. Hooray! It took about a month for me to see results but now he's doing sooooo much better.! And this site sends out meds quickly. Got order if just a few days. Good luck!

Answer: 
L-lysine is an amino acid uses to treat feline herpes virus. There is no information about this product as far as helping with a gagging problem. Speak with your veterinarian about using this product for this problem. Thanks for your question.
