Helps with Feline Herpes
by Max's mom
from Atlanta, GA09/17/2013
This lysine was recommended by my vet to help control the Feline Herpes in all 3 of my cats. It has certainly made a huge difference in their health and has saved me a lot of vet visits. I mix it in with their wet food and they don't know it is there!
by Cat Friendly07/14/2014
I initially used the gel pump form but it seems to run out faster so I tried the powder. I got it for one of my outside cats who has herpes and her eyes held mucus sometimes to the point where they were almost "glued" shut. This product provided relief - I see only a little discharge in her eyes. I think it also helps her overall immune system. She doesn't get sick (sneezing and coughing) anymore. Thank you for the quick delivery and reasonable postage/handling fee! Came just in time so I didn't have to stop. I mix the powder with a little wet cat food. She and the other cats are trained to allow her to eat just this small portion. Then I spoon out the rest of the food for the other 4 cats!
I use this in conjunction with the gel. It gets sprinkled over the dry food. It works great for their respiratory issues!!
Antidote to rhinovirus
L-lysine powder in my cat's food twice a day has almost entirely eliminated the colds and eye infections he used to get. It is a blessing to us both!
from Reno NV12/16/2012
If your cat has runny eyes, the Vet highly recommended this. Works well and my cat is healthy and 12 yrs. old.
Cat will use this
Our vet wanted us to use the L-Lysine and we purchased a can of the paste. Our cat is against anything he knows about, so we were unable to get him to eat the paste, even after hiding it in his food. With the powder he has been unknowingly taking his meidicine! Makes all our lives easier and safer for the humans in the household.
Keeps Herpes at bay
Used as directed, have had NO herpes flareups whatsoever. My cat seems to enjoy it, or at least does not notice it is on her food, which still gets inhaled.
My cats all have the Herpes virus and the Lysine helps keep it in check. They've been much healthier since I started them on it. They like the flavor, too, so I don't have to worry about trying to "hide" the powder in their food--I just sprinkle it on top and they eat it right up.
from Portland, OR08/07/2013
My 6 year old Siamese mix cat has had herpes since he was a baby and for about 2 years had a chronically runny eye and periodic kitty colds. I started giving him Viralys powder mixed in his wet food and he slowly started to improve. He hasn't had a kitty cold for almost 4 years and after about 9 months on Viralys his runny eye cleared up and has stayed clear. And, he eats it without a fuss, so I think we'll keep using it for the rest of his life.
Eye problems Gone in a flash
from New York, NY07/12/2014
I have volunteered at a local cat shelter for over eight years where all the cats received L-Lysine every morning. Many of the cats with Chronic eye problems seem to clear up quite well. I decided to start giving my cats L-Lysine at home.
I no longer have to wipe the discharged off two of my cats eyes every morning. They both look so much more healthier . Works Great
by Burmese Fan06/25/2013
Two Burmese cats were having issues with dripping eyes and I was constantly wiping walls & floor to remove the ooze spots from them shaking their heads. The Vet suggested this for my cats. Once I figured out that I needed to be consistent in getting it into their system 2 times a day, the eye issues have all but disappeared.
This is an EXCELLENT solution!
good price for what my vet recommends
Ii is great to pay half as much for the exact same anti-viral supplement that my cat needs.
Works great for feline herpes
from Houston, TX12/12/2011
My cat has always had issues with feline herpes. He had the typical upper respiratory issues and weeping eyes. I had started him on the lysine gel at first, but he eventually grew tired of that. I mix this lysine powder in with his wet food daily and he has not had a flare-up since. I also give him the viralys treats daily, which he loves.
Great for a multi cat home
This product was recommended by my cats veterinarian. I have a multi cat household with many special needs cats.
from Bolton, MA10/28/2011
Viralys is a great product for cats needing an immune system boost. Lysine is a known immune system booster, and unlike the capsules purchased at health food stores, Viralys is very palatable, even to picky cats.
My cats have the herpes virus (thanks to a shelter cat I brought home years ago). Before Viralys every other month someone was going to the vet for sniffles or eye discharge. Since starting Viralys 2 years ago I have only had to make one vet visit for breakthrough symptoms.

Viralys Lysine - Good Product
from Shingle Springs, CA02/20/2013
Our cat has feline herpes and getting stresses is not good for her. Lysine does a good job of keeping her relaxed and as stress-free as a cat can be.....
L-ysince Viralys Powder
My Persian cat had an ear infection that affected his eye. He developed Homer's syndrome which caused the third eye to remain partially up and the entire eyeball appears more retracted into the eye socket. The vet put him on antibiotics and instructed me to gently clean the ear - the visible areas only - and to start a regime of 500 mg of L-lysine a day. I chose this powder for the ease of use - just sprinkle onto the wet food and it dissolves and mixes right in. My fussy cat didn't notice. I now give all my cats l-lysine, since it helps with auto immune functions. I also use the paste and the treats, all made by Viralys. After checking other mfgs., I found that Viralys has the l-lysine ingredient listed first, in a 500mg amount, and other mfgs don't. have such a high quality product. I will continue to use this for all of my cats.
Helps with Feline Herpes Virus
Giving a daily maintenance dosage (sprinkle on food, moisten with water) really helps keep my cat's upper respiratory symptoms in check. When I notice a "flare-up" I increase his dosage, depending on severity, then cut back to maintenance when symptoms subside. Used in conjunction with antibiotics (when needed) really helps out his immune system.
For herpes not just for Immune Deficiency
from Atlanta, GA05/10/2012
I was under the illusion that L-lysine was also for FIV+ cats and their Immune Deficiency. It is a supplement for cats with herpes. I will continue to use it for my one cat with a rare from of eye herpes.
Help for a common cat virus
Unbeknownst to me (and every other cat lover I know), 90% of all cats carry a particular strain of herpes virus. A few, upon experiencing stress, show symptoms of this virus, most notably a choking or coughing when purring. This happened to one of my cats and the vet prescribed regular doses of L-lysine (Viralys), so after finishing the tub from the vet, I purchased 2 more from EntirelyPets. My order came quickly and the tubs were exactly what my vet had prescribed. I've been sprinking a scoop on each food bowl that my cats eat and the symptoms remain under contro;. I'm so grateful to have found this product online and, so, grateful to have discovered EntirelyPets!
My cat had URI and he was at the vet so often and was on antibiotic for so long I was about to give up. My vet's opinion was that some cats never get over it!!!! After looking on the internet for help I read some reviews on Lysine. After all I already spent it was worth a try. After about a month and gradually it cleared it up completely!!!! I won't be without.
We have a cat the has feline herpes. The lysine reduces ocular problems cause in cats by feline herpes. It has really helped reduce the eye problems in our cat.
from buffalo, ny02/04/2013
This was my first order through entirely pets and I was extremely pleased. I was able to order the same medication my local vet sold me. The best part was entirely pets was literally half the price of my vet for the same exact medication. I will definitely be back.
This product is allowing my young female cat, who only a year ago was a foundling weighing only 3 pounds 10 ounces, to live a healthy happy life. When I got her she had upper respiratory problems - sneezing frequently and discharging from her nose. Needless to say, she couldn't hear well and had virtually no sense of smell due to all the congestion.
My vet recommended this product. Used, as directed, it helped clear up my cat's eye problem (herpes virus). Will continue to purchase from this company. Very happy with their service.
This is exactly what the doctor ordered! At a dose of 1/8 tsp. twice a day, this will last for some time. The best part, IT WORKS! After just 10 days I have seen an improvement in the cat's health.
A Must for FHV Kitties
by Susan G
from East Palo Alto, CA02/17/2013
It is possible to see results in a few days with this lysine product from Vetoquinol. It is affordable and easily mixed with food or milk. Does not require refrigeration. I like the gel too, but the powder lasts longer. It's wonderful to see the discharge from the eyes and nose disappear and a relief to know the cat is breathing easier.
Initially my cats were suspicious about the mix-in in their food, but they got over it in a couple of days, and they're happy to eat their canned food even if some white powder shows unabsorbed.
L-Lysine for cats
from New York03/05/2013
Powder is easy to dispense and the cats do not seem to mind it on their food. I think it is helping them get over their sniffles.
Easy to use and my cat loves it. Besides being effective and affordable, what else could you want from a product. Highly recommend.
another NICE alternative
from orlando, FL09/18/2013
When I got this little Persian she was a mess. She needed so much help with a lot of attention and 1 1/2 yr. later she's on a daily diet of this and really doesn't like her food without a little sprinkle of it in it. SO thanks for another alternative!!
Excellent supplement for FIV+ cat
I took in a stray with a severe upper respiratory illness. Found out he was FIV+, and I wasn't able to get rid of the URI. After 2 1/2 months on various antibiotics and relapsing within a week of finishing each antibiotic, on vet's advice I added Viralys 2x a day to his food, as we tried a 4th antibiotic. He's been off antibiotics for 3 weeks now and he's healthy, but I'm continuing the Viralys (and Oxstrin capsules) daily. So far, no relapse. Vet recommended continuing the Viralys for his lifetime. This seems to be doing the trick to support his immune system.
I give this to my cat who has idiopathic nasal discharge. ( constant runny nose for no particular reason ) This helps keep this problem from getting too severe. My Veterinarian recommended L-Lysine for this problem and this is the form that works the best. I just sprinkle it over his wet food morning and night.
Entirely Pets consistently has this for less money and they always get it delivered quickly.
Very good purchase
by Cat Guru
from Miami, FL11/14/2013
This product was recommended by my vet for one of my cats that has the herpes virus. It is helping him, and he likes the taste which is great since he's fussy.
from Frederick, MD10/04/2011
This started working for my cat within a week. It was very easy to order off the website and was delivered fast. Thank you!
Viralis is great for cat Rhino. It shortens the lenght of the «spells» and the intensity of the symptoms. Great product but I wouldn't get it from Entirely pets, the 2-3 day shipping I paid extra for took 10 days!!! No thanks!
Made my life easier
I was giving Lysine Gel twice a day until someone told me about the powder form. I thought I would try it and save myself any my patient Tommy some hassle of administering the gel into his mouth. To catch him first was the challenge too. This powder has solved the problem ! Easy to administer, Tom eats it without a hitch and no more sneezing or runny eyes. LOVE it.
Viralys is the Best
by Ms Boo11/30/2011
We began using this product with our tortise shell cat when she was a year old. She gets it twice a day with her food.
She loves the flavor of it so much, that she licks it right out of her bowl before I have the chance to put her food into it.
We began using Viralys, because when she was found, at 10 weeks of age, wandering lost, around someone's back yard, covered with mud, she apparently had picked up some parasitic issues in her little stomach and had an upper respiratory infection. We adopted her from a wonderful rescuer in Queens, and brought her home. I could see that her eyes were watering, red and discharging. The Vet put her on Viralys and now I purchase it at 1/2 the price from Entirely Pets. This product has totally controlled the upper respiratory problem, which is essentially a herpes infection. I will continue to use this knowing it is good for her and something she loves the taste of.
Finally, a cure!
from Mt Crawford, VA01/02/2012
We had been struggling with two kittens having respiratory issues for two months. Once we starting putting the Viralys powder in their food we haven't heard any more sneezing or wheezing!
Lysine for Joy
from Philadelphia, PA12/17/2013
Joy has feline herpes -- we've been giving her Lysine for several years to manage her condition. She's stable.
My cat has feline leukemia/FIV. he was in and out of the vet for 3 months. first with a virus, then the glands in his neck got huge, then he had a throat funk that caused him to stop eating due to pain. antibiotics just weren't working. he was absolutely miserable. the vet said to get him on a lysine supplement, but he wouldn't eat the treats or the paste. I finally found this site with a powder form!! oh thank heavens!! within a week my cat started feeling better. It's now been just over a month and his glands have almost gone back to normal. his energy level has increased exponentially!!! He's driving me nuts, but in a good way. He was so lethargic before. since I had to put him on a soft food diet, it was easy to sprinkle the powder in his food 2x a day. if you have a cat with FIV get them on this supplement! it does wonders for their immune system!!
No More Tears
from Kansas City03/12/2012
Viralys is an effective and easy to deliver product. We have used Viralys Powder since this kitten adopted us 5 years ago. I give her a couple spoons full of canned food with the powder mixed in daily and she is always eager for it. The reddish tearing of her right eye is well controlled and her energy level stays high. Purchasing this product on-line is not only easy, it is reliable and always available.
L-Lysine for cats
Good product. Easy dosing, just sprinkle it on their food. It has helped keep her eyes clear and we have less flare-ups now. Excellent shipping on your part too. I always get my order way faster than I ever expect. Thank you.
L-Lysine for Cats, Excellent but.
I have 3 cats and they have Feline Herpes. I don't like that name. It's an upper respiratory infection. The symptoms remind me of a bad head cold. The scarey part is the swollen puss filled eyes when the disease progresses. I gave the exact brand of powder to my cats per Dr. orders and it cleared right up, the sneezing stopped immediately. Soon after I stopped giving to them the sneezing returned so I put some in every meal. My Vet charged me 25.00 for the bottle I paid 18.00 for on this site!
from gibsonia, pa07/05/2013
I find this product to be very cost effective, easy to use (much easier than grinding up tablets or opening up capsules) and it seems to have an aroma that my cats like.
Great product! My cat has it sprinkled in her food every meal.
Best Purchase Ever
from Tampa Bay Area11/04/2013
I am SO VERY thankful for the Vetoquinol Viralys Powder L-Lysine supplement! I don't know how I never heard of this before? Since taking it, my big MaineCoon "Moddy" is peppy-er, his long fur is soft and lush and his cancer is in remission, plus he loves the taste. Even his eyes are bright and greener! I recommend this product for EVERY cat/household. You'll see the results in no time. Oh yeah....btw...it's totally affordable, too! Love it!
After an upper respiratory infection almost killed two of my foster cats I am keeping my charges on L-Lysine on the advise of my DVM.
1/2 the cost of the same medicine from the clinic.
Seamless intake of Lysine
from San Jose, CA10/22/2012
Our above-average cat population happily eats the powder when mixed into their wet food (a mix or raw and canned).
Great stuff works well.It is clearing up my cats repository problem
L-Lysine is an excellent product for cats with feline herpes. In a multi-cat household, I often get runny eyes or sneezing. A couple of days of L-Lysine and the symptoms are usually cleared up. This is a natural product so there are no worries about antibiotics, antibiotic resistance or interaction with other medications.
cat family appetizer
by cat house02/26/2013
Easy to give to our ferals to helps viral infections. Lysine was recommended by our vet to reduce eye and mouth reifections. Just sprinkle on wet or dry food and it easily disappears.
from Los Angeles, CA09/20/2013
My picky cat didn't notice the powder in his food, so far so good!
got 5 abbysinian cats and want them healthy
use this as a preventive supplement
recommended by vet for a viral issue then continued
Great product, great price
from Bellevue, WA03/04/2012
I add this to my cat's wet food twice a day to help control his herpes eye infection. Couldn't be any easier to use, and he either doesn't notice it's there or he doesn't mind the taste (if it even has any). It does a nice job helping to reduce his eye problem. Also, at Entirely Pets it's about 1/3 less the price than at my vet, and since he will need to be on this the rest of his life that adds up.
Recommended by doctor
from San Diego, CA10/23/2012
This med is recommended by my vet and cost twice as much through them. Thanks for being less expensive but good quality.
I appreciated how quickly this item was shipped to our home. Our cat's symptoms had worsened and she actually had fluid in her ears. Within 2 days of using this product all fluid was gone, and her eyes no longer weeped.
I take care of 30 to 35 stray cats. The lysine that I buy helps keep them healthy. The price is great since I need a large quanity. The service is so fast. I order one day and can get it the next. I have checked other sites and some don't even carry this product. Thank You so much for reasonable prices and fast delivery.
This product is great to build the immune system. My cat has herpes in her eye. This product keeps her immune system intact and prevents a herpes flair up. Also, I am so happy with all of my entirely pet purchases. Very timely and great prices.
They actually enjoy the taste!
from Pensacola, FL11/03/2011
Supplementing is so hard to do with picky taste buds, like those of my Savannahs. I supplement with L. Lysine for its allergen reducing effects and I had tried a few different L. Lysine products before finding a winner in this one. First thing you'll notice with this product is a somewhat strong aroma like flake fish food (or at least that’s what my nose associates the smell with!) and my cats go crazy for it. They've been known to hop up on the counter after I put the supplement into their bowls and lap at the powder. I mix it in with their soft food twice a day and it's a breeze to get them to eat it. Great product! Highly recommended!
L-Lysine for cats
from Shoreline in CT05/16/2013
Great product, has helped control my rescue cat's herpes AND he tells me it tastes good! Will definitely reorder.
Helps Control Herpes Virus Flareups
My male kitty has the herpes virus and when he is under any kind of stress, he will develop corneal ulcers. This product helps him heal faster when he has a flareup and I feel it even reduces the frequency and severity of the flareups when they do occur. I have a local compounding pharmacy mix the powder for me into a palatable liquid, which makes it super easy to administer, and to keep the dosing accurate. He takes it easily and happily, it does not upset his system (he also has IBD) and it helps him weather his herpes flareups. I happily recommend this product.
Vetoquinol Viralys (L-Lysine) Powder (100 grams)
from Shingle Springs, CA.08/20/2012
Does what it supposed to do. We've been giving this to our cat for years.Much easier to administer than the gel or pills. Just mix it in her cat food.
I bought the Enisyl-F Oral Paste and this powder, mix the power in the wet food.
most of my cats enjoy it , they love the taste.
Finally my cat Ashley will take her vitamins!
from Elmwood Park, Illinois02/07/2013
I have two cats that suffer from the herpes virus. The L-lsyine supplements really help to reduce the flare ups. My cat Ivy, loves the L-lysine in treat form and gobbles them up. But my cat Ashley hates the treats and the gel form. I tried hiding it in all types of flavors of food and as much as she loves to eat, she won't eat her food when it's mixed with the supplements. I never thought to try the powder form because my vet said cats don't like it. Well, after spending hundreds of dollars at the vet for upper respiratory and eye infections, I was desperate. Bought the L-lysine powder and to my suprise, Ashley eats it mixed in her food like she has no idea that it's there. She actually eats like she enjoys it and I am happy that both my cats are healthy and happy. I wish I bought her the powder form a long time ago. Thank you for a great product!
This product does more for my 14 year old cat's eye infections than any prescription medication ever did.
by rip off03/09/2011
i ordered two products on the 6th of this month, the L-lysine powder and L-lysine treats for cats. i used the priority mail option expecting the items to be here by the 9th, well its the 9th and its not here. so i called and after waiting on hold for over 15mins. i was told it wasnt processed until yesterday (the 8th) remember i ordered it on the 6th they told me it was scheduled to arrive on the 11th SO WHAT IS THE POINT OF PRIORITY MAIL! i recommend to buying your products locally if possible, i feel like i've been ripped off by ENTIRELY PETS.COM!!!!
This product has really helped my cat. I am so please. I was pleased with EntirelyPets for their promp service. Thank You
SO glad someone directed me to this site to buy this amazing product! I had no idea what was wrong with my Todd, but someone mentioned I should this. After about 3 weeks of using lysene his skin and eyes look 80% better. I can't wait to see him in a few more weeks he will look amazing. I will keep using this product forever!
Since I have a cat who needs to be on Lysine the rest of her life, the price is great!
Affordable, easy order
My vet recommended L-Lysine for my cat and their price was sky high. I went online to search and found another company that sold it. The other company had complicated and expensive shipping charges. I did some more searching and up popped Entirely Pets. The ordering interface was easy and the shipping charge was affordable and easy to understand.
My order was shipped quickly and delivered before I knew it. Great company and great prices. Thanks!
Seems to do the trick
Cats eat their food with no finicky behavior. Their eyes seem brighter. My mom and 2sons are troubled with runny eyes and this has improved this chronic problem. Have hope with continued use this condition just continues to improve.
Very good product
I have a cat with herpes of the eye. She responds well to Viralys and this keeps the eye condition under control. This is easy to use by simply adding it to her food.
For Respiratory problems
My little tortie has had respiratory (sneezing, snotty nose) for years. My vet recommended lysine and she would NOT EAT the treats. I ordered this powder and I put it in her food. She doesn't notice. It also helps to get a dust free litter.

Life saver, literally!
by HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I had learned about the L-lysine treatment after loosing 4 cats that were deathly ill with the herpes virus, thanks to neighbors that moved off and left about 20 cats! They left their cats, which had the herpes virus and due to me fixing and getting all shots for one male, it was then carried in the house and 3 of my own contracted it! I've never heard about this virus until having to take 4 cats to the vet and ($1,500 later, loosing 3 of my own)! Needless to say, after doing research due to this devastation and heartbreak, that's when I first learned about the L-lysine treatment! This stuff is a MIRACLE! We give it to all of the cats, inside and outside on a daily basis and thankfully so far it's keeping the nasty herpes virus from rearing it's ugly head again, which has been almost one year! Please, I can't urge you enough to use this product, even if you don't have a cat with the herpes virus, it helps their overall health! I'm using this as long as I have my cat family, which will be as long as I'm here! Please be responsible pet owners and get your animals fixed to stop the overpopulation problem and unnecessary euthanasia of these defenseless creatures we've been blessed with! And if you move, please find them a good home if you can't take them with you! That's exactly what started a $1,500.00 vet bill and this nasty virus! Yes, I'm still upset over it because we lost 3 of our very much loved cats that we've had since birth and 1 outdoor cat that we loved very much! No, I can't say enough about this product and how amazing it is, but I'm pretty sure you get the point so I'll end it here! Thanks for reading my review and giving me the opportunity to speak out about it : )
Fastest Delivery/Great Product
from New York, NY03/31/2012
My cat was diagnosed with a URI and I was informed that L Lysine would help her to get rid of her cold faster. I was desperate, she was, as the vet said, spiraling out of control. After almost two weeks of medications she was still sick as a "dog" even though she is a cat. I researched where to buy L Lysine that was formulated for cats and I found it here at Entirely Pets. I ordered it late one Saturday afternoon and it arrived at my home on Monday. I was amazed and extremely thankful for the speedy delivery. I began giving my baby the L Lysine and within 36 hours there was an incredible improvement and she did not end up being hospitalized as the vet thought she would need to be. I cannot thank Entirely Pets enough!!

Has Really Helped My Cat
from Miami, Florida02/08/2013
My vet recommended the L-lysine for my cat, and I chose the Vetoquinol, because I have been very pleased with another of their products. Glad I bought this. My vet thinks she has some type of herpes virus, and the L-lysine has really diminished her sneezing and runny eyes. She also loves it....will eat it right out of the container!
it's fast and effective within a few days my cats were better
I adopted 2 brothers from a shelter. They had a severe upper respiratory infection. We were going to take them back, but my daughter suggested the Lysine & told us to take them to the Vet. The Vet also recommended the Lysine. Well, the Lysine helped! They are happy & healthy. We put a little powder on their food daily and they gobble it up. I'm so happy we listened to our daughter!!

Big improvement in days!
from San Francisco Bay Area01/26/2013
My 10 yr old cat contracted a upper resp virus years ago - it had really started to bother him, runny eyes, sneezing, low energy. I ordered
L-Lysine for Cats and within a week there was marked improvement. His symptoms haven't totally gone away, but I would say 80% of them have. He has much more energy, and is a happier cat. The cost was half of what the vet would have charged me + the exam and whatever tests.
from Humble, Texas03/12/2013
Viralys is a great product for all cats and kittens. The supplement reduces symptoms brought on by the herpes virus. I add Viralys to all my cats food in addition to the gel form I use daily.
Easy to order
from Austin, TX06/18/2013
Great product I use to buy from the vet. Now I can buy it on-line.
I wouldn't live without this product for my two cats who are prone to upper respiratory issues. This keeps everything under control and helps them breath better! I love it and keep it on hand constantly.
They like it
from Alexandria, VA10/23/2012
At first I was a bit skeptical on what people had said about this product. It surely is easier than the gooey gunk and the chew treats. The amount I have to use is so little. It comes with a small scoop...really it's about 1/8 a teaspoon size that I sprinkle and mix into the wet food. My cats don't notice it's there and they eat it. No more forcing anything into their mouths anymore. I highly recommend this product. L-Lysine is an important supplement for my cats and it is found in very little amounts in very select cat foods. This solves the problem and it is no problem giving it to my cats.
Tamper proof seal??
I have bought Viralys lysine products for my cats for over 5 years with very much satisfaction until now. Usually I bought the gels and pumps, this time I bought the powder.This lysine powder came without a tamper proof seal like their gels and pump products do . When I called customer service they said the seal under the lid comes off when as you unscrew the lid and stays stuck up inside the lid. When I expressed a concern that there is no way for me to know whether or not the seal had been broken from me opening the jar or if it had been opened by someone else, they said the manufacturer designed the tamper proof seal this way and to call them. They won't refund my money, they said call the manufacturer. Beware of this design flaw--how does a customer know if the supposed "Tamper proof" seal was intact before screwing off the lid to the jar?? Seriously--why would the manufacturer make such a dumb design? Take heed, why would anyone want to risk feeding this product to their beloved pets and believe the jar has not been opened? There is no way to verify this!! I am not chancing it.
Lysine for stomatitis & AIDS
This is an excellent supplement for cats with feline AIDS & stomatitis! Add it to each meal & within a few weeks you will see respiratory problems lessen in severity & reduces pain in the mouth.
I am very impressed with this product. After about two weeks I noticed a huge improvement in my cats.

My vet recommended L-Lysine for my cat. Unfortunately he wanted to charge me $ 56.00 for a 100 gram container. At Entirely Pets I payed less than $ 13.00 for the same size for the generic brand. I spread it over their dry food and they absolutely love it.
Viralys is recommended as an aid in the treatment of Feline Herpes Virus and its associated respiratory and ocular symptoms. It has helped my 2 cats have a normal life and the weezing and sneezing has almost disapeared.
The best product. We sprinkle it on the food twice a day for both our kitties. They love it, the flavor is fine with them, and we feel it protects them and builds their immune system, so that virus is warded off.
At Entirely Pets, this product is more than 1/2 off the price our Vet charges for the same size product.
Love this product
I have tried other brands of lysine but this is the best by far. Me and my cats would be lost with out it.
Works well to prevent feline herpes virus
I've been giving my 1 yo kitten Viralys Powder for about 6 months to prevent the feline herpes virus. He's had only one minor flare up since so it appears to be working. I like that it has a convenient scoop and is easy to dispense. Because it has no taste he eats it readily.
This Product Work's !!!
from Sacramento , CA08/05/2014
I have an 18 year old Maine Coon and he is really showing his age. I had this product recommended to me a while back for my cat. I started to use it and it had immediate results. The place where I used to get it started to charge way too much. Then I found it on EntirelyPets and will be buying it for as long as I can. It is so easy just to sprinkle some on his food and he eats it with no issues. It has helped my cat very much and I am very happy to be able to get it so easily and so reasonable.
Better than the gel which got all over my walls when my cats tried shake it off. One cat would not eat the treats, even though my other cat loved them. Just mix with canned food.
When my Veterinarian recommended putting all my cats on L-Lysine, I purchased it locally in pill form and ground it by hand. That lasted a week and I went on line to find a better alternative.
from east Bay , north Cal.03/20/2013
I dilute it & shot it in her mouth w/ a syringe.
she is ok w/ that....... and then a little butter.
she is getting better, her eyes look much better, no more weeping.
by dew's mom05/13/2013
Wonderful product! I mix with a little wet food & all my cat's eat it up. Keeps my cat's eyes from tearing & keeps them healthy. I use this product every single day.
Veloquinol Viralys (L-Lysine)
from Brigeton, New Jersey07/17/2012
I enjoy shopping Entirely Pets, I can find most anything I'm looking for at a reasonable price!
Entirely Pets sent out my cat's treatment med immediately. It is of high quality - Viralys/, i.e., and when taken as directed, it cleared up my cat's chronic herpes simplex symptoms after about a 6 weeks of use.

This has kept my cat's problem in check since she was a kitten. Our vet says it's doing it's job. Two scoops in her food daily, and she easily gets her meds.
by herpes cat mom10/14/2013
Our cat has feline herpes and has upper respiratory colds all the time with lots of mucous. This so far "knock on wood" has been working for him. We put one scoop of this in his wet food every morning. I hope it continues to work. I would much rather do this than have him on antibiotics every other month. :)
Lysine for cats- AMAZING
from Claremont, CA11/19/2013
My husband and I found a very small kitten in a field. We took him to the vet and found out that he was very sick. Our vet told us he may suffer from Upper Respiratory Infections throughout his life. She suggested that after vet treatment, we should add Lysine to his food daily. Since adding Lysine, our now 8 month old kitten no longer sneezes, his left eye does not droop
and his coat is so shiny! Lysine is amazing!
from Indianapolis, In06/12/2012
I've been caring for a cat that my neighbor claims is hers, but does nothing for him. I took him to my vet and he has FIV. I usually give him the Vetri-Lysine treats, but knew I would be going out of town. Since we've used the Viralys before, we put out a feeder with several days' doses mixed in. Kitty is doing fine and has no problem taking a full dose if it's mixed with tuna. But this powder form makes it easy for us to make sure he got a continual supply of the supplement while away. My (and Kitty's) only complaint is the smell. If it wasn't mixed with the tuna Kitty won't touch the dry food Viralys is sprinkled on, unless he has no other choice.
Really great product!
from Liberty, Missouri08/09/2012
I've used this for about 5 years and it really does work very well; I sprinkle it into their dry food once a day. When a couple of my cats had a cold, this really helped relieve their symptoms and with them on it daily, it seems to keep any sniffles away.
My cat was rescued from a shelter and was sneezing frequently every day, but once I started giving her the lysine it went away almost completely. This powder is cheap and convenient and lasts a long time. She also loves the taste!
Better Price than Vet
After purchasing my first container of this product from my vet, I checked online and found the exact same product at Entirely Pets for half the price.
The best product ever!
My 10 year kiitty Kwinn began having a lot of eye problems this year and was diagnosed with the herpes virus.I spent hundred of dollars on vet visits and some expensive meds and his eye was getting worse.My vet said to try Lysine,so I went online and found this great product,and within days his eye looked much better and now is completely normal!!! Apparently it even tastes good,because the first day he started eating it before I even mixed it with his canned food! Thanks from Kwinn.You have a customer for life.
Won't be without it - great product
from Southeast Michigan02/23/2011
This a great product to help control feline herpes virus and I will continue to give it to my cat for the rest of his life, which I hope to be a long one. I give 1 scoop 2x day with his raw meat diet. I took my cat to the vet for a well kitty check-up and mentioned the cat sometimes had a cracked, dry nose and clear runny eyes. The vet had just received a jar of Viralys from a manufacturer's rep and gave it to me to try. That was 2 years ago and no more nose & eye problems. One jar lasts about 10 months, so the price is great too!
Lysine-the amino acid builder for cats
this product is the one for feral cats. I have been using it for 2 years and have had no apparent viral symptoms in my 2 colonies
Lysine for cats
This product works great! I've used it for over a year with my cats and now my sister is using it for hers.
HIGHLY recommend this product.
Recommended by my Vet!
from Somerset, NJ01/30/2013
If your rescue cat has a mild form of herpies that is common for animals from a shelter (some discharge in the corners of the eye, like an allergy symptom) this product might help to reduce the symptom when given daily in food. Sammy has been on it for a year and I noticed improvement after a couple of weeks. He's not put off by the taste either! The price is half what it cost from the Vet's office, too! Ask your vet if it might work for your cat.
from Denver, CO11/07/2012
My 10 yr old male Siamese has feline herpes. I give him this product every day to reduce his sneezing and conjunctivitis. He loves the taste. The price here is about half of what the vet charges for the same product. Entirely Pets ships promptly, too.
Best L-Lysine Choice for Our Cats!
from Long Island, NY04/08/2014
We tried multiple treats for our Feline Herpes positive cats, and this product by far is the most economical and best received by them.
We unknowingly adopted a FH+ kitten, who infected our already-owned cat.
Both animals have been recommended by veterinarian to take 5oomg L-Lysine daily to help control outbreaks. Previously purchased L-Lysine treats were not enticing either cat. This L-Lysine powder easily mixes into a small amount of canned food, given 1x daily as a "treat". They love it!
I am very happy with this product. My vet even recommended that I use this product on a daily basis to boost my cats immune system. I have noticed a great improvement in my cats since I started using it.
I have been using Vetoquinol Viralys (L-Lysine) Powder ever since my 2 cats were diagnosed with feline herpes by my veterinarian several years ago, who recommended that I use this product. This product helps considerably in controlling their sneezing & watery eyes problem.
L-lysine is crucial for feral cat eye health and immune system support. Many sites do not carry this product and I am happy to have found it here. It is tasty so is easy to spread on dry and wet food or even in water. For domestic cats it is a benefit also, but those in rescue rely on this product for help with feral colonies.
Very efficient for my cats. They take it well and got good results too.
Quick response with shipping and tracking. Received as noted very rapidly.
Controls viral outbreaks
from New Mexico10/31/2012
Viralys (L-lysine amino acid compound) was recommended to me by our vet to control our cats' feline herpes outbreaks. I gave it 5 stars but for my cats it reduces but does not eliminate symptoms. For some cats I'm told it works very well, for others not at all. One dose a day is sufficient; I found no marked improvement with two doses. One dose is enough to stop large amounts of gunk accumulating around the cats' eyes, and reduces associated redness.
Cat would be miserable without it!
from Aurora, Colorado09/28/2013
My cat was very sick when I adopted her. She developed herpes in her eye. My vet recommended L-Lysine for cats. My cat has been eating it 2x a day. I tried to wean her off it but her eye was looking weepy and squinty. She will always be on it. I sprinkle it on a spoonful of wet food and she gobbles it up. The price from this company rocks!
Earlier than expected
by Ragdoll mom of 2
from Denvr, CO10/30/2012
Great price on the L- Lysine Powder! Ordering was a breeze. Much to my surprise, it arrived 2 days earlier than I expected and was in great shape!!! Thank you!!!
I have 2 cats who have both had an upper respiratory infection. I have been puting this on their food daily in hopes of keeping them healthy. So far so good!
Viralys Powder is very effective in managing the symptoms of upper respiratory infections.
Great money saver
This is the exact product my vet's office uses. I was able to buy 100 grams for the same cost of what my cats used for one month. The 100 grams lasted me more than 4 months.
I have 2 rescue cats who came to me with runny noses and this product has helped ensure they don't get a respiratory infection or have runny eyes. Love it!
When my cat shows indications she is beginning to get pink eye, I start her on a two week regimen of L-Lysine to clear it up.
Finally, something my cat will eat!
I have most finicky eater, hates wet food, oily anything (even tuna in oil) and most treats, let alone anything supplement-y or medicine. She LOVES this on her food. Meows rudely when its not added, which is 2 out of her 3 mini feedings. Keeps her runny eye at bay, and when it does, its so minor, and only lasts a few days. Now make a powder omega 3,6,9 supplement in the exact flavor and texture! :)
Keeps the URI in Checki
from Peabody, MA01/29/2012
Our cat has "battled" his URI issues since we adopted him in 2004. L-Lysine helps to keep his flare-ups in check and to a minimum. Thank you!
easy to use
by chris moose01/29/2013
We feed feral and owned cats with the lysine to reduce viral infections and it has prevented recurrances of gum problems. Good stuff
from Portland, OR06/16/2013
My cat is FIV+ so this supplement is very important for him. I originally got this from the vet. One jar lasts for at least 5 months. But when I wanted to get more, I was told I'd have to wait for the vet to give me approval. I waited, then found the exact product here (for a little less $$). Thank you!
by Denise R.10/15/2013
I'm very grateful to have found this product through EntirelyPets because the price from the vet was prohibitive and would have made it impossible for me to care for my foster cats properly. The cats eat it right up and have been very healthy since starting on the L-Lysine. I thank you for offering the large jar for those of us who must care for several cats at once. Every penny saved counts!
from Bronx, NY04/06/2013
I administered this product to two feral cats with serious upper respiratory ailments. After a month of adding Viraylis to their wet food, they no longer have symptoms. Very happy that I found something to help these homeless cats who do not allow themselves to be handled despite years of feeding. In fact, I am now adding it to my own cats' food as a preventative.
Lysine Powder to boost immune support
from Riverside, CA12/06/2011
I have recently adopted two half grown kittens who both have upper respiratory infection (a condition they may have for the rest of their lives). My vet recommended this powder to help boost their immune strength. I have not given the powder for very long yet, so cannot really attest to it's health giving abilities, but I can say the order came very quickly in the mail. The container comes with a small scoop - making it very handy to measure and add this powder to the cat food.
from Ventura, Ca.10/02/2013
I initially tried this due to my Vet's recommendation when my cat had "kennel cough".
It seems to be working, it has been almost a year and he has not had it happen again.
I will continue to give this to both my cats and they have no problem eating there food with it sprinkled on it.
I found Entirely Pets to have the best price for this product and will continue to re-order from them as needed.
Viralys (L-Lysine Powder)
This product was Veterinarian recommended for my cat, who has herpetic infection of the eyes. The veterinary community seems somewhat divided on the efficacy of L-Lysine in treating herpes disease. The theory is that L-Lysine blocks production of a protein critical for the herpes virus to reproduce. The evidence for this is mostly anecdotal, and minimal, with no large controlled clinical trials. I cannot tell if it is effective or not. Entirely Pets has been a reliable source of this product for me.
Product helps our cat stay stress-free (as stress-free as a cat can be). This helps keep her feline herpes in check.
Normally supplied by vet.
from Jackson, TN08/21/2013
I can add this to my pets food and know that he will stay healthy.
from San Bernardino, CA09/03/2014
Within a couple of days of starting to use this with my cats, all of their symptoms cleared up. No more watery eyes, runny noses, or sneezing. The flavor blended well into all flavors of wet food and my cats loved it.
finally a lysine product my cat will eat
from wake forest, nc10/20/2011
well i am so glad zooby ate the food with the lysine on it. i returned Vetri-Science Vetri-Lysine Plus - Soft Chews because my cat would not eat them in any way, shape or form. i bought the lysine capsule for humans and sprinkled on food, no way he would eat that either. we used to mix up the capsules in water and syringe the liquid mixture into his mouth, but that was too hard. it worked but too hard. so now i feel confident zooby will get better with his herpes outbreaks. thanks!
This is a must for the health of my kitty. He requires it twice daily for the rest of his life. It is good price compared to other stores.
Part of kitty's daily diet
Lysine was recommended by our vet when we got our kitten 2 years ago. Kitty had herpes, and Vet said that she might kick it with luck and good care. She DID kick it, and we have been supplementing with Viralys each day since on Vet's recommendation. It's easy to keep, mixes easily with food, has a handy scoop, stays granular and doesn't need refrigeration.
Cats loved it!
from Canton, OH08/21/2013
I was really happy with this product being that I was skeptical about my cats even eating it. It does have an attractive smell for cats and therefore, putting it on their food worked out beautifully. It aborbs better on wet food rather than dry food. Totally satisfied!
The cats like it, and that is what counts. Putting it in their food makes it easy, and the cats don't mind eating it. It appears to help my one cat with eye herpes, and that was one of my goals in using it.
Approved by the most picky cat ever!
My 7y/o tortie will not touch any treats except greenies, and will not even try any sort of gravy, oil, chew, paste, gel, tabs or powder supplements for anything. She LOVES Viralys on her dry food. I was shocked, and i have noticed a slight difference in her eyes, she has persistant "runny eyes" and this was suggested by a cat rescue, and okay'd by our vet. I would say its worth a try, and EntirelyPets has the best price, and is a reputable source for those who are concerned about getting counterfit products online.
Works exceptionally well
I have tried many forms of L-Lysine to help with several different issues my cats have. From an inflamed eye to a chronically runny nose, L-Lysine helps to keep these two kitties feeling better. This particular product, Vetoquinol Viralys, is the form I have found that the cats like. I just mix it in some canned food and they eat it up. :-)
have been using the tube jelly.. it was messy.. hard to measure.. this is great and no mess and the cat loves it
from Detroit, MI05/03/2013
Works great for cats who have Herpes virus; runny, goopy eyes, runny nose, sneezing, fatigue etc. My kitty had what we thought was a bacterial eye infection which was treated with a couple of different antibiotics with no success. Turns out she has herpes virus (about half of all cats have herpes virus. Especially shelter kitties and feral cat colonies). My kitty will always have herpes, but as long as I give her L-Lysine it keeps her symptoms away by blocking the virus from replicating. This powderd version is great because it has a measuring spoon, my kitty likes the taste, and it's easy to add to food.
