Why Providing Aloe Extract to Dogs Is Highly Recommended

As a dog owner, you want to do the best you can for your animal.  You likely provide the best possible veterinary care, spend time walking and playing with your canine companion every day, and generally doing things to ensure that your dog is both healthy and happy.  This is certainly a great way to live, and our animals are very much a part of our families.  If you are looking to provide your dog with additional health benefits, you may wish to consider offering an aloe vera supplement, and today we will look at why this is the case.

Most people use aloe vera only whenever they have a sunburn, but the truth of the matter is that this simple plant can offer a variety of health benefits.  If you are looking to really make the most of the plant, it can be worth your time to look into all that it offers.  As a powerful astringent, it is certainly effective at helping to boost the healing process in your dog following an injury or surgery, but it can do much more as well.  For example, it can be tremendous for various skin conditions.

Just like their human counterparts, some dogs are prone to skin conditions such as eczema, allergies, and other problems.  What you might not know is that applying aloe vera or offering your dog an aloe vera drink can help alleviate these conditions.  It is shown to have a tonic effect on dogs and can help boost energy levels, increase appetite, and much more.  It can even help reduce sensitivity to external irritants in dogs who are prone to allergic reactions.  There are a number of other benefits to aloe vera suspected that are still being researched.

Aloe vera is helpful for a number of conditions in dogs, including a variety of inflammatory conditions.  The supplement is highly recommended for dogs with arthritis as well as inflammatory bowel conditions such as colitis.  Treating these conditions is important, and you will find that dietary and other changes are also necessary, but offering aloe vera as well as supplements containing fish oil can prove to be incredibly beneficial in speeding along the healing process and helping to reduce symptom severity and duration.  Your pet is an important part of your family, and if you are looking to ensure his or her continued health, adding aloe to the diet can be of great benefit.

However, check with your vet before using aloa vera for your pup.

    Hello. Thanks for contacting us. The aloe Vera plant can be toxic to dogs if swallowed. This article is referring to aloe Vera extract. The toxins contained in the plant are Removed during processing making the extract safe. Somas long as you are using a processed extract your pup may benefit from it’s use. But check with you vet especially if your dog is experiencing allergies. So if you want to try it, do a small test area to see if she shows any allergic reaction.
