L-Lysine Nutritional Supplement For Cats & Kittens

Aventix Optixcare L-Lysine Chews is a nutritional supplement that helps manage feline herpes virus in cats and kittens. Each tasty soft chew contains 500mg L-Lysine. L-Lysine decreases a cat's risk of contracting the herpes (Rhinotracheitis) and slows the growth of the infection.

  • 500 mg of L-Lysine per chew means fewer supplementation times
  • Bite-Size Chews - easy to give as a treat or crumble on food
  • Tasty Poultry & Pork Flavor - good palatability
  • Resealable Foil Bag maintains freshness

Optixcare L-Lysine Chews are veterinarian developed and tested. Each chew contains only 6 Kcal.

How Does L-Lysine Help?

Viral infections grow when the virus takes control of a host cell and makes it use its resources to produce more viruses. The virus injects it's DNA into the nucleus of the host cell, leaving instructions for the building of more viruses. The host cell is unable to distinguish between the viral DNA and its own DNA. The cell will continue to make more viruses until it bursts, releasing the viruses into the body to infect more cells.

An uninfected cell usually does not use much of the amino acid, Arginine, while cells that are infected use a lot of Arginine to make more viruses. The cell's natural chemical process that uses arginine is limited by the quantity of L-Lysine (another amino acid) that's available. By giving daily L-Lysine supplements to your cat, you increase the quantity of L-Lysine available for the cat's cells to use, which means that the cell uses more arginine for its natural functions. This leaves less arginine available for the production of the cat herpes virus, thereby slowing the growth of the infection.

By administering a daily L-Lysine supplement, you can both help slow an already present Herpes Virus infection in your cat, and prevent your cat from contracting future infections.

5 of 5 Used for immune protection April 12, 2024
Reviewer: Jenna JM from Tucson, AZ United States  
My cat was exposed to Feline Herpes Virus as a kitten, when he is stressed, he can have upper res issues and corneal abrasions.
These chewies, given daily have decreased episodes greatly. He has had only one episode in the last year, and increasing on those days from 500mg to 1G daily makes everything settle down!

He loves the taste too! Buster approved.

5 of 5 Great price on a necessary product! April 12, 2024
Reviewer: Jennifer Hunter from Los Angeles, CA United States  
I ordered these chews for my cat who is so sensitive that he gets eye infections with the slightest change to his routine.  I used to get this pack directly from my vet, but now I see it's more cost friendly through Medi-Vet.  And since I'm giving him one stinky chew (which he loves) every day, I'll stick with Medi-Vet.  Thank you!
