Is your kitten having a herpesvirus flare-up? If not, there's no reason to be giving L-lysine, esp. mixed with so many other ingredients that are not part of a feline species-appropriate diet. If your kitten is having a herpes flare-up, by all means give L-lysine. Otherwise, just feed a healthy diet. Cats and kittens have no need for treats.

My kitty doesn't have any symptoms other than sneezing. No watery eyes, no discharge from nose, no coughing. Just sneezing - maybe dust. So will take your advise and won't give the treats to her until I know for sure.

I gave them to my adult kitties who had respiratory problems and eye gunk after I first got them. Now that they're settled and the symptoms have gone away, I've stopped it. Don't know about giving it to kittens.
