Every day we buy different detergents to clean different things. Wouldn’t it be nice to buy just one multi-purpose product for the laundry, the dishes, the floor and even the bathroom?
Aloe Veterinary Formula is made with stabilised aloe vera gel as its primary ingredient, and is ideally suited for skin problems. Allantoin, a naturally soothing substance, is the other main ingredient. The nozzle-control spray makes apploication to any size or type of pet easy. Aloe Veterinary Formula can provide quick and soothing relief.

Rio has always been a somewhat accident-prone horse from about 2 weeks old up to the present. As a petulant 2-year old she got into a fearful paddy just because I decided to bring my older horse (Robin) in from the paddock first. When I got back to get Rio she came galloping towards the field gate, slid to a halt, reared and dangled her front legs over the gate. The gate opened under her weight and she left a chunk of her chest on it as she fell off! We were presented with a cavity I could put both my fists in and a large flap of dangling flesh. My vet came and stitched what he could and administered painkillers and antibiotics. Two days later as the stitches started to tighten; she tried to pull them out and in doing so ripped the flesh alongside the stitched wound. At this point Maddie French, my neighbour, suggested I might try some aloe products. She gave me the veterinary spray and the gelly.
I applied both products about 4 times a day for the first week and gradually decreased the applications as the wound healed. I took the stitches out myself and within six weeks the whole area had repaired brilliantly with no scarring and the hair was beginning to grow back.
Interestingly, when my vet arrived a few months later to give Rio and Robin their regular health check. I invited him to check the wound on Rio's chest and he couldn't find it!
When I first came across FLP I was told how the gel helped people suffering IBS. I hadn't a clue what that was as thankfully I haven't got it. Anyway, after an explanation I realised it may well help a horse I had recently bought. As part of my business I buy and sell horses and my newest one had chronic diarrhoea. Normally with a good worming programme and a little TLC this problem is usually overcome. Not in this case, he was getting worse not better.
After a discussion with my vet it was decided it was probably due to worm damage. With no other road to go down I decided to put him on the gel. Within a few weeks he started to improve and within five weeks the diarrhoea was completely gone, he was putting on weight and in general was looking 100 times better. Now I know its not normal but there were a few sceptics in the yard and when I returned from holiday his condition had worsened. I then found out that he had not had his gel daily. I put him straight back on it and within the week his condition started to improve again. So much for the sceptics!
My vet was suitably impressed and within a few days I had a call from one of his clients wanting some gel for her horse with the same problem. That horse also improved and remained on the gel until he died a year ago. I have since sold Chester who now looks an absolute picture, and his new owner not only keeps him on the gel but joined the business as well.
This is a true story about a Shetland pony called Muffin. At the time he was 15 years old, skewbald and always fluffy. He had been given to a very old man as a companion to another old pony. He was much loved and well fed but unfortunately the old man had very poor eyesight. He kept Muffin in a paddock just down the road from me, so I could keep a watch without going in to him and looking closely at him. One day during the summer, which had been particularly wet, the old man called around to say Muffin was not too well, could I come and see him.
At first he looked as though he had a touch of Colic or tummy ache. He was rather muddy so I gave him some Aloe Vera down his throat using a syringe. I normally do this with the onset of Colic because it often just settles their discomfort and gives me time to watch them and decide what the cause of their problems is. As I was standing and thinking about what had caused Muffin to be distressed I noticed that on his shoulder a group of maggots were coming out of his coat. It was a terrible sight and I thought he must have a wound.
On closer examination I realised his whole back was a crawling mass of maggots coming out of his coat. I soaked him in Aloe Veterinary Spray and the maggots evacuated nonstop for the rest of the afternoon. I phoned our vet and asked him to leave out some sheep maggot spray just in case I needed it.
I took Muffin home to my farm and continued to apply Vet spray until it was clear.
Obviously Muffin had suffered Rain Rot or Scold under his fluffy coat. The old man had not noticed because of failing eyesight and then the flies had set to work laying eggs on the cracked skin. When it was warm the maggots hatched out which was why Muffin was rolling. After soaking his back several times the next day I applied Aloe Vera Jelly Tube liberally and his whole back from mane to tail lost all its scarred skin. He was growing new healthy skin and hair within 6 weeks and did not have a single scar by the end of the summer. I have had horses all my life but I had never seen anything like this before.
Needless to say I phoned the vet and cancelled the maggot spray.
Shannon, is my beautiful Black and White Irish Cob. I have owned him for 13 years now and, because of his skin pigmentation, he suffers dreadfully with sunburn in the summer months – and it does not need to be hot outside either, to have the most awful effect.
For 12 years, every year Shannon became so sunburnt that the vet diagnosed 3rd degree burns on his nose and surrounding areas. I could not ride him as he could not have the bridle put on his head and certainly no bit in his mouth. I just felt so sorry for him, and I also felt that I had let him down – after all, that is what Mums are for – to look after them so they do not suffer!
Over these 12 years I have applied various sun creams - up to factor 50! And always they had no effect – as after 10 minutes in the field and eating grass, the cream just rubbed off (I suppose it was doing a good job protecting the ground from the sun!)
I was at a complete loss as to which way to turn, until I met Kathy Gervais who introduced me to Aloe Vera and the solution to my dilemma (yes this does sound a little cheesy but it is absolutely true!) Last summer I started to use the Aloe Vera SPF30 sun cream on Shannon during the day and because it was quickly taken right into his skin, nothing was rubbed off onto the grass! When Shannon came in from the field, I applied Aloe Gelly which cooled it right down and you should have seen the expression on his face – it was sheer pleasure in having all the heat taken out of his nose – and the taste was not that bad either!
For the first time ever Shannon had no sign of bleeding and no sign of cracking of the skin around his nose and mouth, so we spent many a happy time riding around Windsor Park during the summer of 2004 – which, prior to Aloe Vera, I could not do.
Now you may think that this is the end of the success story but you would be wrong! Although this was the first summer that Shannon had no sunburn, because of the state of his nose as a result of the previous 12 years of burning – the skin still had no hair on it at all and so no protection from the elements – neither in winter nor in summer. So what I did was to continue through the winter to apply Aloe Gelly to the affected areas. Shannon has now grown back almost all of his hair back on his nose and around his mouth! It is so amazing and it is totally due to the Aloe Vera products – it must have been, as I have used NOTHING else.
Veronica Huxford and her best friend Shannon!
