getting cat to take l-lysine?

My vet recomended giving my himmie this and today I found it in a liquid form but she would not eat it when I mixed it with her fav. meat (wellness) Should I try making it tastier with something esle and what? I need her to start getting better, she has had a terrible eye issue.

Hmmmm....I've only used powdered lysine and they ate it either mixed in wet or sprinkled on dry. Maybe the liquid has a bad taste?

Yeah, I'd try a powdered form...a lot of supplements (especially stuff like fish oils) end up in a flavoured oil base that's not palatable to cats, so it may be something in the liquid.

I have a couple of cans of Fancy Feast Cod Sole and Shrimp lying around for mixing in medications.

If you ever give your cat extra l-lysine, you might as well give the cat some extra taurine as well.

Ok thanks. The liquid does have a smell to it, not a bad one, but more than likely not appealing to a picky kitty. I will have to either try a different food to mix it with or try the powdered. Thanks anyways!
