5 out of 5 stars

My dog Kodi (10 years-old) has had a sensitive stomach and she even has an allergy to gluten so I buy her special dog food without gluten in it. What she has from time to time is stomach gurgles and reflux vomiting. I give her aloe vera juice, which I take also for my digestion problems. I give her 1/4 cup of juice per day until she is better, that is when there is no more hint of stomach gurgles. I have been trying to give it to her on a regular basis, but she does not always want it so I don't force her.

I think 1/4 cup may be a bit too much. I take a tablespoon. I think for a dog, based on weight it should be less. Or at most the same.

As far as I know, Aloe vera is harmful to dogs. You should consult the vet.

Works great for my 15 yr old CAT who's always had a sensitive stomach. I use only half a capful in his wet food.

I too give it to my senior cat, George. I buy the reverse osmosis aloe vera juice with the same manufacturer name as my senior cat. I found it in the health food store, but the big online retailer (named after a river in South America) has it cheaper.

Please do NOT give Aloe vera to any pets! It's well known to be toxic to both cats and dogs.

The preservative "sodium benzoate" is toxic to cats, not dogs. Sodium Benzoate is in some brands of aloe vera juice. It is NOT dangerous to pets (IMHO). I have been giving it to my dogs and cats for many many years and have never had an issue with it. It had always been a benefit, and my pets tend to live very long healthy lives!

It's possible that a part of the plant leaf is toxic, and not the juice. I've heard of people using the juice on their pets for years.

Aloe vera juice is good for our fur babies

What amount of George's aloe Vera would you give to a cat?
