  1. Hi Anna,
    Thank you so much for these articles! they are very informative.
    Have you any thoughts regarding Aloe Vera Gel for ulcers, or feeding the gel?
    My horse had a very bad skin breakout of hives or sweet itch, and among conventional steroid shots and other anti itch remedies (honey and colloidal oats), I started adding aloe vera gel in her feed and it seemed to really help. I did this before I read your aritcle, as a friend told me that many times, when a horses is outwardly showing symptoms of stress (hives, behaviour, etc.) they may also develop problems or already have problems in their stomach such as ulcers.
    Thanks again Anna! I am going to get your books and read them.

    • One of the crazy things about ulcers is that the process of scoping is so stressful, that many vets suggest trying a remedy and doing kind of a reverse diagnosis. If you see an improvement, it’s working. And yes, I do know people who swear by Aloe Vera. I agree with your friends outside/inside thoughts about stress. If the challenge continues, see a vet for sure, but stress is something that a perceptive owner can see and treat…

      And thanks for getting the books, I hope you like them.
