My cat was a stray,he has herpes in his eyes and nose.Any suggetions for homeopathic treatment?

We’ve spent over different vets to save Sinbads eyes,they get better than bad again.Steroyds seem to get the job done ,but I’m worried about the toll they will take on his kidneys.He’s a wonderful stray cat that jumped into our lives on Cinco De Mayo 2 years ago.I hate to have to put him through all the drops and stuff.Any sugestions?

    if the steroids work use them, you will eventually have to put him down for one thing or another, eyes or kidneys. its a horrid choice to have to make

    Isn’t there some kind of eye ointment that the vet’s could give you. Steroids are bad for an animal if taken alot. If the eyes continue to stay sick, honey, I know that it may be painful but maybe putting the cat to sleep is the humane thing to do. Beleive me, I am an animal lover, I feed all the stray animals around town but sometimes it takes tough love to put an animal out of it’s misery….

    Oral L-Lysine is recommended by many veterinary ophthalmologists at a dose of 250-500 mg twice daily. Lysine competes with another amino acid, arginine, that herpes virus must have in order to reproduce. Lysine has been demonstrated to decrease the severity of ocular symptoms associated with herpes virus infection (1) and reduce viral shedding during periods of disease recurrence . This really does help. 500mg during non out break times and 1000mg when the cat is having a flair up. Lysine can be bought at any box store pill form and crushed and mixed in with wet food. or you can buy a lysine paste made just for cats. I tried the paste and it was easier to get the cat to eat the crushed pill in food. It does help.

    L-Lysine from your vitamin aisle at the grocery store. 500 mg crushed in his food daily should help to keep the herpes in remission. At the vet hospital where I work we recommend it all of the time. It is an anti-viral amino acid supplement that a lot of people take for herpes as well. It has very little flavor, so it shouldn’t disturb his eating habits.

    I am not qualified to answer your question. But, I had to say God sent this gift to you and I can understand why. There aren’t a lot of people that would do what you’ve done for as long. That is one blessed cat and you are one wonderful human being.

    Thanks for giving me a blessing tonight.
