I founded and run a cat rescue and use this with and after antibiotics for sick feral kittens. I use a small medicine syringe to easily measure and administer, and they love the flavor. I never have a problem getting them to take it, and it seems to make a big difference in their recovery and well-being maintenance.

They love it!
This works well, it almost look like a gel when it comes out of the tube. I have one cat with Feline Leukemia and Herpes and another with just Herpes (they're kept separate), both are a bit finicky. Thankfully they take this form of Lysine best and it's so easy to give it to them, I just use a measuring spoon and they lick it right away. I tried different treats for months and they hated nearly all of them. The only one they liked I can't find anywhere or they changed their formula and the treats are now rock hard. Either way this is so great stuff and even if you give the max amount (500mg) it lasts about three months, compared to the treats which only last about 2 for the same price.

Tasty & easy to administer
My vet started my cat on this for chronic respiratory issues and eye related to herpes. My cat loves the gel (hated the powder form added to food). So easy to give twice daily as she thinks it is a treat! Wish I started this years ago! I just give on a spoon!

Artifical sweetener. Really?
After the loss of our alpha, who had FHV since we adopted him @ 6m old, we adopted a pair of male kittens (4 and 5m old respectively. This product was provided by the no-kill animal shelter where we adopted from.

Active Ingredient(s): Purified water, L-Lysine HCl, sodium carboxymethylcellulose, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, artificial sweetener, maple flavor, citric acid, riboflavin 5'-phosphate sodium.
Inert or inactive ingredients not listed.

The active ingredients read like a chemistry set supply list. And, an artificial sweetener? Couldn't the company use a bit of organic Stevia and make it a bit less artificial. For what they charge for both the amount of L-Lysine supplied and over quantity (5oz), one could purchase a 1# container of NOW L-Lysine powder and get more overall L-Lysine (435mg/.25 tsp), a longer shelf life (3+ years), and less mess from the wonderful taste that causes the cats to drool this all over the floors.

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.

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.....

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.

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.
