As many as 80% of the estimated 72 million cats in the USA are at risk of being infected with Feline Herpes Virus 1 (FHV-1) during their lifetime. Once infected a cat is likely to remain a carrier for life (even in the absence of clinical symptoms) with recurrent upper respiratory and eye infection. While there is no cure for FHV-1, there is a new tool that may help improve the quality of life for millions of owners. Enisyl-F is the first lysine based product developed specifically for cats and kittens.
Enisyl-F (from the makers of Laxatone
) is a palatable lysine paste that comes in a unique dial-a-dose syringe for easy and accurate administration. Available in convenient four syringe boxes (up to one month supply). It provides a safe, and cost effective new option for the management of FHV-1 infections and subsequent flare-ups.
What is Enisyl-F?
Enisyl-F is a nutritional supplement. It is a newly available form of L-lysine HCl a highly palatable gel for easy administration. It is intended for cats subject to feline herpes virus (FHV) symptoms.
How does it work?
Enisyl-F will help reduce the severity of FHV symptoms. Decreased corneal ulceration and abbreviated upper respiratory involvement should be noted.
How long will it be before I see any improvement?
Depending on the clinical stage of the infection, the visible signs noted above may occur as early as 7 days.
How long will my pet have to take Enisyl-F?
Length of administration depends on the actual problem. A thirty day administration program is a suggested to minimizes recurrence. Enisyl-F may be life-long, if directed by your veterinarian. Studies show a link between times of stress and FHV infections. As with all herpes infections, an animal remains a carrier through the course of its life.
It is advisable to give it to my pet every day?
As mentioned above, quite often a condition will stabilize after administration of Enisyl-F. Based on your pet's response, your veterinarian will best be able to determine future dosage. It is an essential amino acid and safe to give every day.
Will Enisyl-F interfere with any other products my pet is taking?
There are extensive studies proving the safety and efficacy of L-lysine HCl. As with all supplements your veterinarian should consider all medications or treatment protocols currently in use.
