Aloe vera juice has many benefits for horses. It can help to improve digestion, joint health, and skin conditions. Many people recommend using aloe vera juice for horses that are prone to ulcers. It is also a natural anti-inflammatory and can help to reduce swelling.

The recommended dose of aloe vera juice for horses is 1-2 ounces per day. It is best to give the juice to your horse in small doses throughout the day. You can mix the juice with water or add it to your horse's feed. If you are using aloe vera juice to treat a specific condition, you may need to give your horse a higher dose. Always check with your veterinarian before giving your horse any supplements.

Can Oral aloe vera help horses with gastric ulcers?

There is limited evidence that oral aloe vera can help horses with gastric ulcers. One study found that horses drinking a preparation of aloe vera gel supplemented with Lactobacillus had lower scores on a global assessment scale for EGUS than those given a placebo (manager’s report, unpublished data). However, studies on humans suggest that the majority of cases of EGUS are caused by Helicobacter pylori infection and thus aloe vera may not be particularly helpful in treating this condition. There are several alternative treatments for EGUS that have been proven to be more effective than aloe vera.Veterinarians should offer these treatments first before recommending oral aloe vera to patients with this condition.
