|You can get L-Lysine, in any human drugstore, in the vitamin section, yes, you can get the people kind, thats what my vet told me to do. You want the capsules, so you can break them open, and mix the powder with wet or baby food. They don't like the taste, Bump hates it, so you gotta mix in a good amount of wet, and mix it real real well.
Like Lacey said, you want the high quality name brand, it should have no sugar, starch, artifical flavor, artifical colors, preservatives, corn, soy, yeast, wheat, grain, gluten, egg, or milk products, and, it should say so on the bottle.
The normal dosage depends on the cats weight and age. Adult cats over 9 lbs, 500 mgs, once a day.
Adult cats under 9 lbs, 250 mgs, once a day. Kittens, depending on their age, and you have to check with your vet, and know, why, you are giving it to a kitten, its 250 mgs, once a day.
Mine only get it when they are sick, cause, they hate it, but alot of show people give it all the time, I guess if kitty is stressed about showing, Bump and the kittens love it, which is why, they only get it when they are sick.
Bump acts like royality, mol, and surveys his little kingdom, and says, here I am, look at me. The kittens think they are at Disneyland, so much cool stuff to look at.
