aloe vera for dogs

Aloe vera for dogs has seen increasing popularity in recent years. The following information is based on veterinary surgeon Dr. David Urch's book "Aloe Vera - Nature's Gift".

There are 2 basic ways that aloe vera gel can help your dog. The first is as a dietary supplement, and the second is as a gel to massage into the skin of the affected area.

ALL the recommended products carry the official International Aloe Science Council Seal, which ensures that they have been tested for purity and content.

Here is a list of possible problems where aloe vera can help.

Aloe vera for dogsAloe vera and your dog

Aloe Vera for dogs can help certain medical conditions in pets and have beneficial effects on the following conditions:

  • Joint issues especially Arthritis
  • Skin conditions
  • Respiratory problems
  • Digestive system
  • Eye and ear problems
  • Overall general health

Joint Problems/Arthritis

Arthritis (more properly called osteoarthritis) is a condition where the joints slowly degenerate. It is part of the ageing process, but can also occur in younger animals after trauma. Hip dysplasia, which is common in some dog breeds, can also lead to arthritis in the affected joint.

It is impossible to cure arthritis, but its progress can be limited. The aim is to repair the bone damage next to the joint, increase the lubrication of the joint fluid, and reduce the inflammation in the joint. There are several types of injections into the joint that veterinary surgeons could use, but most only provide short-term relief, and repeated injections can damage the joint further.

The best natural treatment is Forever Freedom gel, a food supplement, that contains more than 80% aloe gel combined with 3 joint protecting agents. This product decreases joint pain and inflammation while improving cartilage and joint fluid lubrication qualities.
