1. What is the highest, safe dose you can give a cat daily who is suffering a herpes flare-up?
2. How long can you give that highest dose of Lysine each day i. e. one week? two weeks? before you go down to the maintenance dosage.
3. Is it really safe to give the maintenance dose of 250 mg./day for a cat who is permanently infected and shedding the herpes virus?
4. (this may be a dumb one... but) Does the Lysine lose it's effective benefit's against herpes flare-ups if the cat has been on and off the supplement for many months?
My vet's both say only 500 mg. per day - but that is not helping her. If I go to 1000 mg. per day I see a slight improvement. But vet's do not recommend that dosage. I don't want to "overdose" her on Lysine Thanks for your responses in advance
