Optixcare Lysine Chew
To aid in the treatment of Feline Herpes Virus
Feline herpes virus is an upper respiratory virus of cats and is common among cats, especially in locations with multiple cats or where new cats are interacting. The virus is spread through the air and replicates in the upper respiratory tract.
L-Lysine is a recognized component of the multi-faceted approach to treating herpes infections.L-Lysine has been shown to help reduce the frequency of herpes flare-ups and help with reducing their severity.
The Optixcare L-Lysine Chews are a market first in that each chew contains 500mg of L-Lysine. At the recommendation of many veterinary ophthalmologists, CLCMedica formulated these chews to contain 500mg of L-Lysine each which makes supplementing the cat easier.
Current recommendations are to give 500mg daily prior to stress-inducing situations, or if a cat is prone to recrudescence. During times of active herpes 1000mg daily is recommended.
Optixcare L-Lysine chews are highly palatable and easy to give. Package contains 60 chews.
