Hi Friend,

A happy Friday to you.

Today's article is on the Flu, but more importantly what you can use to naturally help it. I have had great success using key components in my supplement, Ultimate Feline.

Specifically L-lysine, and other immune supportive products such as colostrum.

See the key ingredients here:

Here is my older cat Cleo with a bout of the Cat Flu:



----------------
The Flu
----------------

A very common problem in cats, and it is often recurring.

One of my cats Cleo had severe Upper Respiratory Tract Infection (URTI) as a kitten, and it became chronic.

He would constantly have bouts of sneezing, eye infections, along with discharge from the eyes and nose..

Not pleasant for him at all.

I intitially used antibiotics, which helped for the secondary infections.

BUT Cat Flu - and ANY type of Flu is caused by a Virus.

Antibiotics do nothing for viruses.

And their overuse in a situation such as this can cause harm.

-----------------------------------------------
So What do I do, and what can you do?
-----------------------------------------------

Consider using the amino acid called L-lysine.

Here is a paper which demonstrates its effectiveness:


Efficacy of oral supplementation with L-lysine in cats latently infected with feline herpesvirus.
Maggs DJ, Nasisse MP, Kass PH.


Department of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO 65211, USA.

OBJECTIVE:

To examine the effects of orally administered L-lysine on clinical signs of feline herpesvirus type 1 (FHV-1) infection and ocular shedding of FHV-1 in latently infected cats.

ANIMALS:

14 young adult, FHV-1-naive cats


CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE:

Once daily oral administration of 400 mg of L-lysine to cats latently infected with FHV-1 was associated with reduced viral shedding following changes in housing and husbandry but not following corticosteroid administration. This dose caused a significant but short-term increase in plasma L-lysine concentration without altering plasma arginine concentration or inducing adverse clinical effects.




Heal Your Pet At Home!

Best Wishes,

Dr Andrew Jones, DVM


P.S. If you have a cat with recurring Flu like signs, I encourage you to at least TRY some Lysine.

It of course doesn't need to be from me, BUT it does need to be the right form, in an adequate dose.

Ensure that you give it for at least 8 weeks to assess its effectiveness.
