 The most widely used plant of the Aloe family is Aloe Barbadensis Miller. This Aloe is the one used in the earliest of veterinary preparations and has stood the test of time.

The medicinal properties which help conditions in both cats and dogs are found in the inner gel of the leaf. This leaf must be processed before it can be used.
