Aloe Vera Products from Forever Living
Aloe Vera is a natural supplement made from the inner leaf of the plant (btw you don't want your dogs having a munch on aloe plants in your home as there is a toxic layer) that has been used dating as far back as the ancient Egyptians who dubbed it "The Plant of Immortality". It can be used as a general tonic to supplement general good health and wellbeing and it can also be of particular use to animals suffering from ear, skin and digestive problems. It's also a great natural remedy to keep in the first aid box (for pets and people) for hotspots, wounds, burns and bites!
All the Forever Living products are made from the highest quality, organic, cold-pressed aloe. For more info you are welcome to message me or have a look at the 'Aloe Vera for Horses, Dogs and Cats' Facebook group. You can also find aloe articles on the following websites -
Whiskey and Millie have 1ml of gel for every kilo of body weight each morning with their sardines, Whiskey for general wellbeing and Millie to help with her ears/allergies.
