Where to look for Lysine?

A friend needs some for her cat (poor sickly thing) and I don't know where she can look for it?

Re: Where to look for Lysine?

Any health food store should carry it, it's for people. I bought mine on-line.

Re: Where to look for Lysine?

I purchase mine from this site: http://www.entirelypets.com/ I get the kind that comes powdered so I don't have to crush up the pills every time I add it to their food.

I get mine at the local Walgreens. Crushing them is very easy.

General health: it promotes and supports a healthy immune system.

You can buy L-lysine at any drug store or other store that sells vitamins. Just crush and mix a 500 mg tablet into the cat's food daily. It's particularly helpful in boosting the immune system of cats with chronic herpes eye infections.

Re: Where to look for Lysine?

All the Lysine can actually do is keep the feline herpes virus from replicating. It does not work on any other virus that they know of at this time and does not kill the virus. It does do wonders for the symptoms of the herpes virus in cats eyes.
