Is Aloe Vera Safe for Cats and Dogs?

Back in the late 18th century Aloe Vera was successfully used to combat a number of Horse ailments and became widely known as Horse Aloe.  In 1840 two blacksmiths, George Skevington and F.D. Day published their positive findings.

In 1950, a report was featured in a veterinary medical magazine. This report was made by a team of researchers who documented the positive antibacterial effects of the healing plant in relation to animal healing.

After a study of over a period of six years, Dr Northway had investigated the effects of orally ingested Aloe Vera. 42 dogs, 25 cats and 4 horses were used in this study and the plants anti-inflammatory characteristics worked on acute, chronic and bacterial infections. The aloe halted the spreading of most yeast fungi ailments such as Candida and the bacterial staphylococcus, streptococcus and corynebacterium. In 67 out of 71 cases, Dr Northway`s positive results were as good as or even better than those of the classical therapy.
