It won't help any other type of infection but it will help herpes infections. You can get it in capsules and open the capsules and mix it in the food. It won't hurt, it is just an amino acid. Becky
He hasn't sneezed today, but his eyes were runny when I woke up this morning. The vet told me to put eye drops (Opticlear Veterinary Eyewash) twice a day. He said if it gets worse, to bring him in on Monday (or sooner if needed). But so far his eating, drinking and bathroom habits have been normal.
I do have Lysine capsules on hand as I used them for Kionu's eyes 1-3 times a week. Should I give it to Miko now or wait until after the vet visit?
P.S. Thanks for the replies!
