Rhinotracheitis experience by - Elaine
Longview WA USA
I am a foster home for abandoned, abuse, and homeless kittens, cats, and some time a dog or two. As a foster home we do all we can for the animals, but the herpus virus sometime does not show up until an animals is in a new home. (stress related). I use in my home Acidophilus and L-lysine to help build a better immune system. And I am sure your Vet will tell you to vaccinate and feed your pet good food to stay healthy.I also agree with that. I have had kittens that look great only to find out when they were adopted they got sick after leaving my home. I am dealing with this virus now and I am using Vitamins C, L-lysine and Acidophilus on a few of my animals and having some good result. I am also working with my Vet with eye medication and antibiotic. Kittens especially 6 week and up to 9 week are the hardest because it cam ecome on suddenly and take it life in a short time. The older it is the more likely you can arrest it but never cure it.
