Is Aloe Vera Safe for Dogs and Cats? | Animal Wellness Magazine
Hello... I just wanted to comment on giving a cat aloe vera juice to stop the symptom of vomiting. One of our cats was vomiting severely. We don't know if it was due to our having applied Frontline or due to a vet-diagnosed bladder inflection, or both. What I wanted your readers to know is this cat was vomiting up everything---food, water---nothing was staying down. We gave her one "capful" of aloe vera juice. The vomiting stopped immediately and has not returned. Since I didn't know if this was a reaction to the (vile! ) Frontline, I have put aloe vera juice in all my cats wet food everyday since. Thank you for sharing the advice about the aloe vera juice!
Hi Scott, I believe 'George's Aloe Vera Juice' has been mentioned several times here as safe for cats. We gave it to our 14 year old tabby when he was in renal failure and he did well with it. Good luck!
I found this online today. Dr. Fox, the animal doctor from the Washington Post, was answering some questions from pet owners. It started off with a question about natural flea control. Another reader was very upset because she had found out that one of her two new cats had a terminal disease called Feline infectious peritonitis, FIP. FIP is a fatal incurable disease that invades and grows in white blood cells causing the immune system to respond with intense inflammation in the containing tissues. It seems that it is very common in places where large groups of cats are kept together (animal shelters). Most common transmission is through the inhalation or ingestion of the virus through feces. The owner wanted to know if there was anything she could do for the cat since she has proven to be sensitive to any medicine.
The doctor responded telling her, “As long as an animal is not suffering and has some quality of life, has a good appetite and enjoys being petted and gentle play, then never give up.” Dr. Fox went on to suggest a raw-food diet and a couple of supplements including (shocker shocker) human grade aloe vera liquid!Aloe is also being used for the treatment and clinical management of fibrosarcoma in cats and dogs. It has prolonged the survival of the animals.
Well, it seems like aloe’s natural healing properties are not just for humans alone, at least in some forms.

The vets said it’s either fip, Cancer or a deep wound with infection. He doesn’t look or act sick. Just keeps filling with fluids then he can’t breathe. Time is critical for him. Can someone tell me anything ? Sincerely, LornaIf what you need is a deep cleansing conditioning shampoo, than our Aloe Premium is the right choice for you.

This succulent plant commonly goes by the name aloe vera or true aloe, although various common names also apply including octopus plant, medicine plant, torch plant and candelabra plant. Although the gelatinous tissue is commonly used by humans for medicinal purposes, the latex in the aloe plant is toxic to cats and an irritant to humans and other animals. A cat who is medically treated with aloe that has not had the latex removed from it by a well-meaning pet owner, or a cat that accidentally ingests aloe by eating the plant in the house or garden can exhibit symptoms of toxicity. Toxicity in cats from aloe poisoning is usually mild to moderate, although dehydration can occur if reaction to the plant is extreme enough. If aloe poisoning is suspected in your cat, you should seek veterinary assistance.
