Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Optixcare L-Lysine Chews for Cats, including answers from our team.
what's the youngest age a kitten can consume the treats and will they just need half a treat?
These can be given to kittens as soon as they are weaned. They only need half a treat at a time when very young and not every day at first. You can gradually increase how much they have as they get bigger, but the exact amount is not critical.
Can these be given to any cat or are they just for cats who have been diagnosed with feline herpes (my cat gets frequent eye infections which the vet treats with drops but he has not said what is causing them)
These chews can be given to all cats and they might well be beneficial for your cat. It might be worth asking your vet first, but I am sure they would be safe.
