Is a Natural treatment for feline herpes virus, conjunctivitis, (cat flu) upper respiratory Infection (URI) sinus, antiviral, calicivirus or mycoplasma and promotes the formation of both collagen and muscle protein, fatigue, helps in the absorption of calcium needed for proper growth. and may help speed recovery from surgery and sports injuries as well. Lysine amino acid. L-lysine is a naturally occurring amino acid which inhibits the growth of herpes virus in cat's body. Feline herpes is one of the extremely common Upper Respiratory Infection (URL) in cats, caused by herpes virus. This virus spread through the air and replicates in the upper respiratory tract of the cat. It is highly contagious, and most cats get this infection either as kittens from their mothers or by living in an environment where there are multiple/stray cats or new cats interacting constantly. The clinical signs of this infection include eye discharge, squinting, sneezing, and sinus congestion.
L-Lysine for Cats.
As said before, lysine is an essential amino acid found in the proteins, which is used to treat feline herpes virus. Hence, to treat herpes symptoms in cats, many cat owners prefer giving their cats lysine supplements, which are nothing but amino acid dietary supplements. Although most cats are able to suppress herpes virus with their immune systems, some cats suffer chronic or recurrent feline herpes virus which can be suppressed by lysine to a large extent. Hence, despite many antibiotics and antiviral medications available in the market, many veterinary ophthalmologists recommend oral lysine for cats suffering from the herpes virus.
Osteoporosis: L-lysine helps improve the absorption of calcium from the digestive tract and prevent loss of calcium in the urine. In so doing, some researchers speculate that L-lysine may help prevent bone loss associated with osteoporosis. In addition, test tube studies suggest that L-lysine in combination with L-Arginine (another amino acid) increases the activity of bone-building cells and enhances the production of collagen.
Rhinotracheitis virus invades the lining of the nose, pharynx, sinuses, throat, windpipe and the membranes that surround the eyes (conjunctivitis) Interference with the cat's sense of smell probably accounts for the lack of appetite in many cats during their initial infection or later flare-ups. In severe infections, ulcers may form in the mouth as with calici virus.
What can causes infections.
Some stressors are moving, boarding, pregnancy, lactation, vaccination, injury, surgery or a new cats in the household. Overcrowding, poor nutrition, poor sanitation, and lack of vaccination also make the disease more likely. Some pets continue to have low grade, persistent infections with respiratory symptoms, eye drainage and conjunctivitis. These cats are also quite efficient in passing the infection on to other pets.Typically calici virus does not affect the eyes and mycoplasma affect primarily the eyes. And typically, calici virus and mycoplasma do not cause depression, malaise and fever. This amino acid reduces the amount of another amino acid, arginine, that is present in the cat's body. Arginine is thought to be necessary for the herpes virus to reproduce. Most prescribe this supplement until the acute flare-up has resolved, but some cat owners continue the supplement indefinitely.

What I do for example: If I was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
(c)“NUTRITIONAL Mix ” Giving vitamins and supplements (tablets or powders) Note: always crush tablet before adding to food or liquid mix.
