ENISYL-F for cats is a palatable oral paste that contains L-Lysine HCL. 

L-Lysine supplementation can support your cat through infections with Feline Herpesvirus by competitively inhibiting Arginine, an amino acid that Herpesvirus-infected cells use to reproduce.

ENISYL-F is very tasty, so is easily accepted by most cats, and comes in a handy pump dispenser.

L'infection par l'Herpès virus félin de type 1 se traduit par un complexe clinique associant rhinite et conjonctivite. Plus de 80 % des chats infectés restent porteurs de l'Herpès virus félin après une primo-infection. Il persiste à l'état latent au sein du système nerveux, en particulier au sein des ganglions tri-jumeaux. Une réactivation est possible en cas de stress (mise bas, lactation, corticothérapie) et se traduit par la réapparition des symptômes et une excrétion du virus. La L-Lysine entre en compétition avec l'arginine, acide aminé indispensable à la réplication du virus HVF-1 et participe ainsi au blocage de sa réplication. Elle aide à réduire l'excrétion du virus HVF-1 et contribue à atténuer les signes cliniques et la fréquence des poussées actives d'HFV-1.

ENISYL-F is extremely tasty and is easily accepted by most cats. It can be applied directly in the mouth, on the nose or on the paw where it can be licked off. Alternatively, you may add the product to your cat's food, if more convenient.

Seek advice from your veterinary surgeon prior to use.

ENISYL-F may be used at the first signs of herpes virus disease, in addition to conventional therapy, and for 1 to 2 weeks after the cat's return to normal. For chronic forms, it may be used as a permanent supplement or at the onset of signs. Administer 1-2 weeks before and after exposure to stressors that may cause reactivation of the virus (giving birth, lactation, changes in the home environment, steroid therapy etc).

It is estimated that at least 80% of all the cats in the world are infected with Feline Herpes Virus (FHV-1) which is a major cause of the most severe and widespread respiratory infection in cats, Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis (FVR).

Up to 80% of cats who contract FHV-1 remain lifelong carriers of this highly contagious virus and can pass it on to uninfected cats through viral shedding.

Reactivation of the virus may occur spontaneously throughout an infected cat’s lifetime, although it is often associated with stress.

FHV-1 presents a greater threat to kittens, in whom it causes severe respiratory and ocular symptoms. While mortality is generally low in adult cats, it can reach 30% in 
kittens.

In adult cats, FHV-1 flare-ups are often hard to differentiate from the other two main feline infectious respiratory diseases, calicivirus and chlamydiosis.

Ask your veterinary surgeon for more information on feline infectious respiratory diseases.
