    Keeps my cats eyes from weeping
    September 16, 2017
    My 2 year old cat has herpes of the eyes. He will have to eat these chews the rest of his life. If I run out of these the weeping gets really bad. Definitely helps him. Ordering online is cheaper than my vet and I will order from Entirely Pets again.
    Thank you

    Don't know what was wrong with it...
    May 9, 2017
    Our vet suggested Optixcare for all 9 of our cats.
    So we ordered it and we gave it to them 4 days in a row and every last kitty threw it up along with their food.
    Don't believe this is the fault of EntirelyPets as it was not expired, but for some reason it just made every last kitty sick. As soon as we stopped giving it to them, they stopped throwing up.
    If it were just one or two of my kitties, I might not be so skeptical, but it was all nine of them.
    NO, I would not recommend this to anyone.

    I have several cats and only 1 of them would eat this supplement. I bought the Lysine for 2 of my cats that had colds but neither of them would even try them. I wish the manufacturer was able to mask the smell of the Lysine.

    I was pleased with the price of Optixcare L-Lysine for Cats, as it was considerably less than what my veterinarian was charging. My order arrived quickly, and I plan on ordering more when I need it.

    Seem to be helping with herpes symptoms
    March 9, 2016
    Both of my cats are rescue cats and have had herpes acquired from their Mother since birth. One had a drippy eye and the other just got into eye ulcer after 12 years being symptom free. Vet suggested Optix L-Lysine Chews to help their immune systems deal with the herpes factor and I have been really impressed with the changes in both. Ulcered eye has healed with a combo of meds including these chews and the other beautiful boy with the drippy eye is almost symptom free now and has more energy...including jumping up on the bed again which he hasn't done in years.

    Wasn't sure he would eat these - have tried the powdered lysine with no luck and he is super picky about treats - but he loves these! They are large meaty chunks (soft) - I break them into 4 pieces so he thinks he is getting a treat! Will definitely order these again - I hope the lysine works for his eyes!

    This product was recommended to me by a specialist to help prevent another herpes breakout in my cat's eye. At first, I used less expensive products instead, but after a while my cat refused to eat them - a waste of money. I finally tried the Optixcare and my cat loves them. It's a treat for him to have it twice a day. It costs more than other brands, but he is actually eating them, and getting his medicine now.

    This product was prescribed by my pet's opthamologist to help control a herpes virus he has infecting his left eye. Taken daily, it helps to prevent the virus from reproducing. It is a good product as it does seem to help his weepy eye. And as for the cat, he loves them! Every night at 6pm, Merlin comes to the kitchen and waits for his "treat."

    Optixcare from Entirely Pets
    September 2, 2015
    It's great when you find something for less, right? Entirely Pets offers a nice low price for Optixcare, a supplement often prescribed for kitties with feline herpes.

    Entirely Pets ships promptly. The website is user friendly. I would surely go there first should I need something else to make Ben's life healthy and happy!

    Best of all, each package I've received from Entirely Pets is well within its expiration date, so the succulent chewies are as enticing at the bottom of the bag as they were at first opening.

    My kitty, Gracie, gets one of these every day for her herpes. She has been getting it for years and it's a great product for holding the herpes at bay. It's not a cure, but it does keep it under control. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has a cat with herpes.

    Optixcare is simple to use and works well!
    August 17, 2015
    I have been giving my rescue cat a different type of medicine for many years, and found the Optixcare when I getting ready to purchase some more of the gel type medicine I have purchased from Entirely Pets for years.

    I thought I'd give it a try to see if it works as well as the other meds she has been given for 7 years now.

    It seems to work very well, and my cat loves it! She snarfs the large soft disc of medicine (her "treat") first before she touches her dry food.

    I will keep the other gel on hand for a while, but if I see she is doing as well with this new Optixcare med, I will switch all together, since she loves it and it is less messy than the gel form.

    Cat refuses to eat the product - L-Lysine Chews.

    One of my cats has a chronic upper respiratory infection. Since she's been using the chews her condition has improved. She still has symptoms, but they are much milder than before.

    Great treats for my kitties!
    March 30, 2015
    My two kitties (siblings) have Feline Herpes, which causes them to have a weepy reddish fluid coming out of the eye. I have tried all types of l-lysine treats and they were just ok. These treats have helped them tremendously!

    Neither of my cats would eat these. They are fairly large, and kind of chewy. Not the type of thing my cats like

    My cats line up twice a day to take the opixcare.

    My cats take this product like it's a treat. I have 5 cats that have herpes of the eyes. They each take 1/2 tab twice a day and it's keeping them in perfect health (no more eye secretions)

    I had tried other L-Lysine cat chews and my cat quit eating them after the first few days. She loves these and has no problem eating them. I like that I only have to give her one and it cleared up her eye right away.

    Our five cats really love these chews and will try to steal each others chew when fed. Great taste according to Magik, Soot, Flame, Cadbury and Fang.

    Just what the doctor ordered
    November 16, 2013
    When my vet told me that my cat needed to be given Lysine daily, I was scared it would be a huge ordeal. I was worried that he would hate the supplements, so I ordered these treats with low hopes. I could not have been more wrong. He loves them! If my cat, a picky eater, loves them, then I would reccomend these treats to any and all who need to give their cat or kitten lysine daily.

    Dropped off 3 month old kitten. You know the story. Currently on my lap in her new home.
    My vet and neighbor recommend I put her on L-Lysine.
    Went to the Drug store purchased the pills. Not only did she not like the idea of pills neither did I.
    As a prior satisfied customer of I ordered Optixcare L-Lysine at the suggestion of their excellent customer service person. She (Pumpkin) is now on her 2nd bag and enjoys her special treat. I would certainly recommend this product to other cat lovers.

    No guessing on the doseage. All pieces are uniform in size (unlike some other brands). Plus my cat loves it.

    I manage a TNR colony of feral cats, and one of the feral cats contracted the Herpes Virus in her eye. After some emergency treatment at the Vet, he recommended these. The cat absolutely adores them, they are practically making her a non-feral cat. Most important is that her eye, which she might have lost, looks fantastic. I continue to give her one of these every day and her eyes are clear and healthy looking. Highly recommend!

    Optixcare L-Lysine for cats
    June 2, 2013
    Our Vet (eye Dr.) thought our twin Bengal cats were in need of Lysine to overcome a deficiency and to improve eye health. She recommended this brand. Both our cats are pretty fussy eaters, so I was dreading getting them to take these. But the product is outstanding. Both cats look forward to their lysine, to the point where now all we have to do is yell "Lysine" and they come running. They have been on it for 4 months and still loving it.
