Feedback for Lysine Aid Cat Gel has been compiled from 16 customer reviews
I can't ask my kitten what he thinks, and although it said on the bottle, 'it's palatable', he wasn't too keen on the taste at all.
but when mixed through his first small batch of food in the morning, he does eat it and it has seemed to make him calmer.
I was adviced to get this lysine gel by my vet to help to combat cat flu virus, and 2 weeks on.. I can say it looks like we did ;-)
It's the only thing that helps with my 18 year old cat who has a stuffy nose that bleeds on and off after a bad dose of cat flu 18 months ago. Even a CT scan can find nothing wrong.
Lysine added to food as directed. Used over approximately 3 days. First meals she ate as normal, the second hardly ate any and went to her kibbles. It seemed to have had an adverse effect as Hollie refused to eat at all and was just drinking water. She has been very lethargic and had a continuous 'snotty' nose. I've further researched Lysine via ehow website and it does state that it can cause further problems. Obviously I no longer use it and it's back to the drawing-board and as well as a visit to my vets, further research is required. I confirm that this is no fault of your Organisation, if anything it's mine, I just want the best for her and will endeavour to find a solution to her condition. She still can't as yet, have her yearly injection due to having had cat flu as a kitten. Could any of your vets give me any advice please?

Thank you for your prompt response. If you can advise further it would be greatly appreciated. Are there any food supplements available that would be beneficial perhaps?
