I have personally noticed that many kitties are suffering from upper respiratory aliments this past year. My Tina had a touch last February and Magellan never got it. So I was told by several vets that 250mg of Lysine per day would help the immune system and therefore prevent upper respiratory problems. So I am searching for any and all details and comments on this subject. My own observations are that Purina One, BG before grain and Blue dry cat foods have L-Lysine in their ingredients but not the canned foods which is what Tina eats mostly because she only has two teeth. I am planning to purchase L-Lysine tomorrow and give 250 mg. to each of the cats I feed to see if this does help. Your advice and comments are appreciated as well as any warnings or links for research. Thank you.

My 8 yr old female cat is digging at her back end bottom. She is losing her hair on her tail and her back area. She also has little sores in those areas. She does not have fleas.
