Product Details

Lysine Aid is a tasty, salmon flavoured gel specifically designed to help manage Feline Herpes (FHV-1) in cats and kittens. FHV-1 is the most common viral infection that affects both domestic and wild cats. It causes acute respiratory illness known as feline herpes virus infection or rhinotracheitis. Lysine Aid contains L-Lysine. L-Lysine is a natural amino acid that is present in proteins. It can have a major role in the management of the herpes virus infection. During replication of the feline herpes virus, it shows that an increase in L-Lysine levels helps to inhibit the effects of the virus as it competes with another amino acid called Arginine during the process. Lysine Aid should be given during periods of stress as stress can aggravate the infection (see below for dose rate).

Dose rate (Each pump of Lysine Aid dispenses 2ml of the gel).
Cats: give 2ml twice daily.
Kittens give 1ml twice daily.
Give for one week before periods of stress and for at least 2 weeks afterwards.
Lysine Aid can be applied directly to a cat’s paw so they can lick it off or it can be added to their food.

What our vet says

What our vet says
"Feline Herpes can be prevented by vaccine. But if your vet has diagnosed this in your kitten or cat, Lysine Aid can help manage the virus. It's a gel which you can add to food or pop on your cat's paw to be licked off. If your cat is off their food, they may not be able to smell it - so you can warm it slightly to entice them. Remember to keep their fluid intake up too."
