Humans aren’t alone in needing the anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving benefits of the aloe vera plant. Aloe vera has also been found to help our furry friends with arthritis, autoimmune diseases, and gastrointestinal disorders. Don’t let your animal be miserable when a natural solution is at hand.
Cats can also suffer from Interstitial Cystitis as well as FIV which is an AIDS-like disease called Feline Leukemia Virus. Concentrated aloe vera is being studied in cats with Interstitial Cystitis (IC) and as in humans, aloe vera may reduce the frequency, burning, and nocturia associated with IC.
Desert Harvest removes all anthraquinones, insoluble fiber and contains no artificial ingredients or fillers. It is critical that you do not give aloe vera to pets if it contains the anthraquinones (caustic, carcinogenic part of the aloe vera plant).
Our pet aloe comes in powder form with a pre-measured scoop for easy dosing. Feline aloe powder includes natural chicken flavor for finicky eaters and can easily be mixed with food or treats
A 1991 joint study between the Animal Medical Hospital, Irving, Texas, and the College of Veterinary Medicine, Texas A&M University, studied aloe vera in 50 cats, all positive for feline leukemia virus (FeLV). Like AIDS, FeLV is a retro virus. Normally, 40% of cats are dead from the disease within four weeks and 70% within eight weeks. The disease is considered the most important severe cause of illness and death in domestic cats. The study findings were significant in that 29 cats that should have been dead were still alive after 12 weeks and apparently were normal. Ask for veterinarian about aloe vera for FeLV and other conditions.
