|L-Lysine is an immune booster, and when Bumpurr has an occassional
infection, my vet puts him on the L-Lysine too, and he is better in a few
days, altho he does stay on his meds for the required time. She gives him
the L-L for no more than 10 days.
500 mg, get the capsuls, you can break them open, and I mix, very well, with
1 teaspoon baby food, Beechnut, turkey or chicken ONLY, and lukewarm
water, so its kindy soupy, like a thick soup. He eats it right up, never even
knows its in there. He gets one capsule, once a day, but he is also 20 lbs,
so it would depend on the weight of the cat, as to how much to give, your
vet should of told you how much to give, and for how long.
You can get L-L almost anywhere, but get a good name brand, no sugar, no
starch, no preservatives, no fillers etc.
There are a few human products that can be given to cats, but they should
only be given under the direction of a vet. Never give tylenol to a cat, it
will kill them, if aspirin is called for, they usually give baby aspirin, 81 mg,
but again, only under the directon of a vet, as you would not know how
much to give or how often.
Metemucil can also be given to a cat, but has to be sugar free, and flavor
free. This also depends on the weight of the cat, as to how much to give,
and how often, and what is wrong with the cat. And again, should only
be given under the direction of a vet.
Hope this helps and hope your kitty is feeling better soon.
