Excellent product!
July 31, 2015
After having to take one of my cats to the emergency clinic from a feline herpes outbreak, they gave me this product to use with the instructions of giving it to him daily. that was two years ago. I found it at Healthy Pets for a reasonable price and have been giving it to him faithfully on a daily basis. He loves it and actually carries on every night when it's time. It's like a treat! When the water eyes start I know I have to increase the amount and it has kept it suppressed. I find that symptoms flare up seasonally so I increase what I give him for a few days and the symptoms go away. I highly recommend this product if you have cats with the herpes virus and have had difficulty keeping it in check.
the tube is easy to dispense from. Most cats love the taste.

Viralys for Cats
May 15, 2015
I have used the powder & the gel. The powder I use on feral & stray cats and that alone has helped. I have an indoor cat that thinks I am tainting his food if he sees me putting the powder in his food & he will refuse to eat it. This stuff is absolutely the best. My husband thinks I am running rescue shelter. I own 3 cats & my daughters each have 3 cats. I have been cat sitting for a couple of weeks & during that time one of them got sick. He has been treated & will go home this afternoon. I would call this the "WONDER MEDICATION" for cats........
It goes a long way and is affordable.

When will it get better
February 16, 2014
I recently adopted my first kitten after years of believing I hated cats. (to my surprise, when my adult son came home a 1yr old black cat I fell in love) anyway so I broke down and found the love of my life littly 4 month old black kitty but from day one he has some issues and then this sneezing started the first time a round of poliymycin he got better, this time however the sneezing was getting horrible and the vet gave him a long acting shot and the Viralys gel. He takes it great but the sneezes have gotten worse and the stuff he is flinging is very annoying. How long before it gets better? I think about upping the doseage he is now 6months and weighs 6.5 lbs. He is only getting it once a day so I noticed where it calls for twice a day. I love this little fellow and he was sneezing in my face. is this contagious to other cats? Humans? Any help would be good.
no change? None he takes it very easily.

Wonderful Product!

I've got 3 cats who have the Feline Herpes virus. Two of them are on the Vetri-Science Lysine Soft Chews, but my third cat is the pickiest cat I've ever met, she won't eat anything but her hard food. Our vet recommended we try this lysine oral gel along with Vetri-DMG Liquid. The combination of these two products has done absolute wonders for her symptoms, she is no longer sneezey and her runny/watery eyes have cleared up. I STRONGLY recommend this product to anyone whose cat has the feline herpes virus. If you have a super picky cat who won't eat treats, this is the way to go. It can be a pain in the butt sometimes bc she's not a fan of the syringe, but it's either use this product or have her be all miserable.

This stuff is fantastic

One of my cats was snotty for years. Our holistic vet recommended this product after the snottiness got so bad that it was causing horrible nosebleeds. I can\'t tell you how much he has improved! He gobbles it right down, mixed in with a little canned food. So thankful as he is a nightmare to get medicine down. I HIGHLY recommend this product!

wonder drug!

I have a rescue cat about 6 years now and we just always thought Oliver was destined to be a \"snotty cat\"- always sneezing and wheezing- flinging mucus everywhere when he did. Ugh! Gross! We recently switched vets and she reccommended Viralys. This stuff is like a wonder drug! What an improvment! I can\'t believe the difference! I mix it in just a bit of canned food (as he also had crystal issues so is on a dry food) and he gobbles it up and licks the dish clean. Even cries when he knows it is almost time to eat! I am thrilled!

Our cat also has the Feline Herpes virus, as she was a feral cat. She has chronic URI and her fur tends to shed really badly all year around. Our vet recommended Viralys and it\'s helped both problems.
The cat loves the taste - I just mix 1/4 tsp with his wet food and he gobbles it up! Thank God for Viralys!!

It really helps!

Our cat has Feline Herpes. She got a seriously ulcerated cornea that took weeks to heal. The doctor said to start giver her this and she\'s had two minor conjunctivitis conditions but nothing like the first condition. We give it to her in a syringe.

Her brother, who will eat wet food, which she won\'t, gets the powdered version in his wet food.

Excellent prices here at Healthy Beat other prices by several dollars and they have exceptionally fast shipping!

Viralys Gel

I started giving Viralys (with a feeding syringe) several weeks ago. Runny eyes on both cats have improved a great deal. Neither cat objects to the gel. I am very pleased with it.
