At Charleston Dog Walker, we love to share new products, pet health information, pet-friendly activities, and local pet businesses with our amazing clients! Check out this guest blog from Hannah Salters, a local representative of Forever Living, an aloe vera company that offers a line of over 200 products for dogs and people made from organically grown, hand-harvested aloe.
Have you ever wondered about the many uses of aloe vera? Other than breaking off the leaf and treating burns, aloe can be used for an assortment of ailments for both you AND your pets. Did you know you could ingest aloe, and that it is great for your dogs, too?
Aloe can be used for skin irritations, joint pain, digestive issues and more. Pure aloe vera gelly is versatile and safe. It can be used in dogs’ ears, on cuts, bites, rashes, in mouths for ulcers or sores, and much more.
Much like the gelly, the aloe vet spray is a great item to have on hand as it is easy to use and sprays directly on your pet’s fur. It can often save you from having to shave your pet to reach the skin, as the spray goes right on, and reaches the infected or aggravated area. It is a multipurpose product as well, and can be used to clean ears and around your pet’s eyes. It is a coat conditioner and is also great for washing out wounds. When our yellow lab had a rather nasty infection and had to have his fur shaved for it to be cleaned, we used the vet spray to help the wound heal. The poor guy had to wear a cone for a while, but thanks to aloe, it was a shorter stint than it could have been!
Forever Freedom drinking gel is wonderful for animals with joint issues, arthritis, hip pain and more. They love the taste of the gel which has MSM, Glucosamine, and Chondroitin. These three supplements can offer great relief in a matter of days, as the two latter help rebuild cartilage.
The Aloe Drinking Gel can be used for puppies with upset tummies as well as a prebiotic. It can be given to show dogs in order to promote superb skin and coat health. Drinking aloe for digestive care, especially for gut issues such as Colitis, has been proven to be extremely beneficial. Our 6 year old lab, Jake, as well as both my husband and I, drink the gel for our gut health. Jake loves the taste and licks his lips when gulping down his aloe. If ever we see him resort to eating grass, we make sure he gets a few doses of aloe so he can reset his gut and be back to his playful self.
Forever HA and Arctic Sea are two wonderful supplements that support joint health. The HA provides a unique form of hyaluronic acid to keep joints lubricated. The Arctic Sea is an Omega 3, Mercury free supplement. These nutrients serve several functions, cushion and protect the internal organs, and support proper joint function. Our sweet little friend named Gatsby, an 8 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, loves taking his Arctic Sea to help with mobility. Gatsby is a true product of aloe as he also frequently gets his baths in the Aloe Jojoba shampoo and he uses the vet spray too. These two items help him to stay fresh and looking his normal, handsome self!
All of the above items, along with many others, are for both humans and pets. They offer the same benefits for people as they do the animals. Forever Living is THE aloe vera company, and it offers a line of 200 or more products made from organically grown, hand harvested aloe.
