Viralys Lysine powder for cats is a daily supplement to help control or reduce the incidence of herpes virus outbreaks. Feline herpesvirus 1 (FHV-1) affects many cats, causing cold sores, conjunctivitis and eye infections, upper respiratory infections, and in some cases death.
This product is beneficial in both young and old cats who suffer from chronic herpes virus infections. It can also be used as a preventative measure in high-risk cats such as those exposed to FHV-1 positive cat colonies or pets with weakened immune systems.
The initial herpes V infection causes lifelong latency which means the virus will stay in the body but become inactive until it reoccurs when environmental triggers such as stress, trauma, or illness activate the virus.
It is not yet known why these environmental triggers cause the virus to become active again, but research continues around the world.
Viralys Lysine powder for cats contains 500mg of lysine per teaspoon. And it’s packed with Vitamin C, which supports the immune system and helps prevent secondary infections in cats with herpes virus infection. Dose: Cats over 5kg – 1 tsp (5g) per day. Cats under 5kg – ½ tsp (2.5g) per day mixed with food or directly into mouth Add your pet’s regular vitamin supplement at least 1 hour after giving this product to ensure maximum absorption.
