Vetri-Lysine Plus contains two active ingredients, L-Lysine and DMG, both of which support the immune system. L-Lysine is an amino acid that supports antibody, hormone and enzyme production. L-Lysine also helps control feline herpes, due to its ability to compete with L-Arginine, the amino acid which is required by the herpes virus to replicate. Along with L-Lysine, Vetri-Lysine Plus also contains DMG, which is a metabolite that is naturally produced by your pet’s body in small amounts to support the immune response.

The study’s conclusion recommends an immediate stop of L-Lysine supplementation because of the complete lack of any scientific evidence for its efficacy. Fern Crist, DVM, a former board member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners, says she can’t count the number of cats she’s put on L-Lysine over the more than 30 years she’s been practicing, but says that, based on these findings, “I’m inclined to stop using L-Lysine, at least for the time being, and wait for more information.” Dr. Andrea Tasi, a feline veterinarian and owner of Just Cats Naturally, doesn’t recommend L-Lysine anymore. “Over time I came to see it didn’t do much for most cats,” she says.

Along with the ingredient DMG, Vetri-Lysine Plus helps support immune system functioning, collagen formation and tissue repair. The chews are soft and bite-sized, so even kittens can eat them.
This study can say whatever it wants. I have a cat with Feline Herpes, every day I put 1/4 teaspoon Now brand Lysine in his breakfast and again at dinner. When I forget ( I rarely have) his eye gets blinky and the sneezing begins. I also had a cat who came to me FIV positive, he also had Herpes and his eye ran constantly he was chronically congested. That darn Lysine made a huge difference.
I have two cat rescues that I give l-lysine treats to daily, it keeps both of there symptoms under control. If I forget to buy the treats and they miss out, there symptoms come back. Now I’m concerned about the side effects.
Upper respiratory infections are common in cats, and the symptoms of these kitty colds – sneezing, runny nose, runny eyes, lack of appetite, fever – are very much the same as what we experience during a cold. In addition to conventional treatments such as antibiotics or antiviral drugs, L-Lysine supplementation is often recommended to treat symptoms and prevent a recurrence. According to a recent study, more than 90 % of veterinarians in cat hospitals recommend L-Lysine supplementation.
I have two cat rescues that I use L-lysine for. Paste from the vet and chews from Global Pets and or Pet Value. Symptoms are under control while using the lysine. However, if I happen to run out or miss some doses, symptoms come back. One is worse than the other. I would really worry if I did not have this to give to them. I feed high quality wet food, and try to keep everything natural. My home is very green.
A recent study looked at infections caused by herpes virus 1, and found that L-Lysine supplementation was not effective in preventing or treating herpes infections in cats. L-Lysine supplementation also didn’t decrease the development of clinical signs, nor did it aid in treating symptoms.
I have read this study and it DOES NOT prove that lysine is ineffective or harmful for cats. You have an obligation to your readers to get a professional to evaluate this study. And it needs to be someone who knows how to interpret this specific type of study. One of the main problems with this study is that it was a retrospective analysis of multiple previously published research studies. This type of study can never PROVE anything. Secondly, the authors included old studies of lysine use in humans, dogs, and laboratory test tubes. Really?!?!? By doing this, the authors have violated one of the main rules for conducting these types of studies that look back at what other researchers have previously published. In fact, this study was so poorly conducted that no conclusions can be drawn from it at all, let alone making recommendations about how to treat our kitties.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sayrah from Works but these are quite sticky These work and keep my cat from getting sick due to his low immune system thanks to Feline Leukemia and Herpes. However; these treats are very sticky and smell awful, he would not eat them whole. My mother had to dissolve them in some water and make what she called his “gravy”. We moved on to the Lysine in a tube from Viralys on this site, it is much better and you only have to give 1/2 tsp daily. Date published: 2016-05-29
My cat is elderly and now rejects the crushed pill form of L-Lysine that she took mixed in her food for years. Luckily, she really enjoys these Pet Naturals chews. The dose in one chew is correct for my cat, unlike with some brands which would require her to take more than one per day and are more costly for her daily dose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from good product These chews have been great! My cat loves the taste, which is good since they are hard for him to chew. They have helped with his chronic upper respiratory infections. Unfortunately, we adopted him with an URI, after 3 rounds of antibiotics the vet said she couldn’t give him any more, so she recommended Lysine. This is much better then grinding up pills. He still gets sick but it’s not as bad and it’s short term. Date published: 2013-07-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great for feline herpes Like another reviewer, I bought a sphynx kitten who evidently had been medicated so as not to show her respiratory condition during the 5 hour drive home. Once in the house she wouldn’t stop sneezing covering everything around with . . . Yuck. Vet said infection and went on 2 courses of antibioticswhich didn’t work. I researched and found Lysine also smashing pills or powder version. Thank goodness for this product Miss B is now 1 happy sneezeless, hairless cat! Date published: 2013-06-04
Vetri-Science Laboratories Vetri-Lysine Plus is recommended to support immune system function, collagen formation, tissue repair, antioxidant activity and antibody and lymphocyte production. The inclusion of DMG supports methylation, providing useful methyl groups to support the production of hormones, neurotransmitters, antibodies, nucleic acids, and other metabolically active molecules. Research indicates that supplementing with DMG enhances oxygen utilization at the cellular level and supports the immune response.
