Aloe vera gel

A neighbour has just tried to flog me some of this for my dogs. Is it any good?

What do you want to use it for? It can be very useful on certain types of wound, though for me Manuka is better. O

It's good for burns and insect/nettle stings ime but never used on a dog!

Huh. She said it would be good on wounds and scrapes. The spaniel is constantly sporting a scab or seven due to his fondness for hedge diving. I wasn't sure if it was safe.

It's totally natural so should be fine, I've used it on my kids loads either straight from the plant or I have a tube of the extracted gel.

totally safe.

my staffie has allergies and bites his feet. I use this to soothe the itch. supposedly dogs don't like the taste.....mine seems to like it so I have to cover his feet to stop him licking it all off!
