    Hello All,
    I am new to this site and looking for advice. My cattery has been infected with the Herpes Virus. My 4 cats are now on end of its acute stage and I finally feel as though I can breathe. This virus was very scary and came on quickly. They are currently on Lysine 500mgs 2 X a day, Azithromycin to manage the secondary infection they acquired while in the acute stage of the virus, and Famciclovir. They are also on probiotics. Are there any other vitamins or meds they should be given?
    I also would like to know if breeders manage this virus and continue to breed their cats, and if so, what is your protocol?
    Thanks

    What probiotics are they on?Im not a breeder.But my cat just recently put on Famciclovir also n Lysine for the herpes virus.But before Snowball was put on the ones mentioned above he was on Amox/ clav:n terramycin n tobramycin.And tobramycin didnt do nothing.The terramycin n amox/ clav helped with the conjunctivitis he got from the herpes virus.But as soon as amox/ clav and terramycin was done it was like nothn was helping.Until Famciclovir.
