Instead, the vet has been doing research on using L-Lysine to reduce virus shedding at 400mg once per day. I know this is also used frequently in people w/ herpies, cold sores etc. The only strength I have found is 500mg at CVS. They are huge tablets and I don't want to pill him daily if I don't have to. I say this also because I can hide medication crushed up in his canned food very easily. He is stark raving mad over food!
So I was wondering if anyone has experience w/ L-Lysine, and where do you purchase the appropriate strength? Also, can you find one that can be easily put into a cat's food for convenience and to avoid the stress and struggle of manually pilling a cat? This is still new to the vet, and she hasn't had much experience w/ it yet. She said to try a health food store.
