Animal Care: Paws and Claws
Aloe Vera Gelly is effective for soothing minor skin irritations, insect bites, cuts and scrapes. We have used it successfully on skin inflamed from pollen allergy, ear irritations, and itchy mite/spider bites on paws. When we had outdoor cats, Gelly was handy for treating bite wounds from fights with neighborhood cats.
Veterinary Formula is a topical aloe skin treatment made especially for pets (though it also good for your skin) and has fewer ingredients than Aloe First Spray. It is a convenient, non-sticky product for providing nutrients to skin and coat, treating skin problems such as flea allergy, reducing inflammation on insect bites, aiding healing of cuts and scrapes. If sprayed on a clean napkin or facial tissue, Forever Veterinary Formula is ideal for cleansing the skin inside the ears or around the eyes.
Aloe Vera Gel is the best aloe vera drink for pets because it has the purest formula. Even though many humans dislike the flavor of Gel, our cats drank it straight from the bowl, spoon, or saucer and seemed to enjoy it. Our dogs often get Aloe Vera Gel mixed with Forever Bee Honey as a healthy treat. We believe Aloe Vera is good for kidney support and general health in pets. Just remember to be moderate as too much Gel may cause diarrhea.
Forever Bee Honey is a natural sweetener that is healthier than high fructose corn syrup and other refined sugars. We add it to Aloe Vera Gel and home-cooked oatmeal for our dogs. Even though honey is almost 100% sugar, its acidity discourages bacteria in the mouth. Honey also has antioxidant properties and is good for the throat and digestive tract. As with babies, do not give honey to puppies
Propolis Creme is a rich creamy lotion combining the benefits of Aloe with antimicrobial propolis (protects against both fungus and bacteria). Vitamin A & E as well as lanolin makes this product a powerful skin conditioner and repair tool. We used propolis creme to treat insect bites that have been aggravated by chewing and scratching.
Aloe Jojoba Shampoo has been our favorite dog shampoo for over 20 years. Using it 1-2 times a week eliminates odor (even in outdoor dogs) and leaves hair luxuriously soft. We have also used it on cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and puppies that stepped in their own poo.
Absorbent C provides vitamin C in a delicious chewable tablet that pets love. The pill is made of oat bran and honey, which is great for your pet’s health and has citrus bioflavanoids, an ingredient in joint supplements for dogs. We give this to our dogs to boost immune function and prevent premature aging. Each tablet contains 100% vitamin C for a person, you might need to break it into smaller pieces for small dogs/cats. Signs of vitamin C overdose are diarrhea and upset stomach.
Forever Active Probiotic contains immune boosting bacteria preserved in tiny gelatin beads. Having good bacteria in the gut reduces the number of bad bacteria. We give Forever Active Probiotic to our dogs occasionally, to help replace the intestinal flora killed by their antiseptic dental rinse.
Aloe Liquid Soap can be used for both bathing and spot cleaning pets. It is gentle enough for baby rabbits and guinea pigs and effectively removes the food, dirt, pee, and poo that young animals often run afoul of. Aloe liquid soap can also be used to wipe anal gland secretion or smelly bottoms of adult cats and dogs (be sure to wipe the surrounding hair).
Formulated for the entire family to use, Forever Toothgel contains only the highest quality ingredients. It is also suitable for vegetarians since it contains no animal by-products. Natural peppermint and spearmint flavourings leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean. The optimum percentage of aloe vera gel needed for effective cleaning was determined after extensive testing at a leading dental college in the US. The result is a toothgel with a cleaning ability second to none, with abrasiveness so low that it has been declared a polishing gel by an independent dental laboratory. With all the other benefits that aloe vera gel brings to the gums, here is a toothgel preparation that not only matches the competition, it beats it hands down.
ALOE HAND & FACE SOAP
Rich and creamy moisturising liquid soap, perfect for the entire family. The mild and non-irritating formula creates a luxurious lather to cleanse the face, hands and body on a daily basis. Usage: Release the lock mechanism and dispense a small amount of Aloe Hand & Face Soap into wet hands. Gently work into a thick lather for thorough cleansing. Rinse with warm water and dry.
