First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs & drawings. From the cover: Although Aloe Vera has been used as a natural remedy for thousands of years, it is only within the last few decades that the full extent of its medicinal properties have been recognised. The leaves of this cactus-like plant contain nutrients and unique components that have been shown to be beneficial to conditions of the skin and immune system. Aloe Vera is not a cure on its own, but helps the body cure itself -naturally and without side-effects.

This book provides animal owners with practical advice on how to use Aloe Vera to treat a wide range of animal ailments. Over 200 conditions that affect the cat, dog and horse are discussed, as well as some of the common diseases of cattle, sheep, goats, childrens pets, snakes, lizards, fish and birds.

Based on the personal experience of a veterinary surgeon each disease is described in plain English with step-by-step instructions on how to use Aloe Vera preparations effectively, together with recommended doses. There is also guidance for owners on first-aid and animal care.

Many of the common conditions affecting the skin ears, eyes, digestive, respiratory, immune, musculoskeletal, and urinogenital systems are covered, including:

  • Eczema
  • Wounds
  • Burns
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome
  • Mud Fever
  • Mastitis
  • Laminitis
