Product Review:
Aloe Vera Vet Cream

Mary Ann Isaksen
From the Sept/Oct 1996 Rat & Mouse Gazette

This soothing, moisturizing compound, which contains vitamins A, D, and E, is actually manufactured for use on horses and dogs for the treatment of dermatitis, abrasions, and skin irritations, but we have found it to be extremely effective on rat skin problems as well.

Most rat owners have, at one time or another, experienced diet related skin problems (AKA scabs or spots) with their pets. This cream, applied daily to the affected area, will clear up diet related scabs in a matter of days without any other treatment except modifying your pets diet (i.e., reducing the amount of protein and fat).

Skin problems caused by mites or lice should be treated with Ivermectin (1.87% horse paste, the size of an uncooked grain of white rice once, and again in three weeks) to address the cause of the scabs, but applying the Aloe Vera Vet Cream will help heal them much quicker.

RMCA ships this product and sells it at every event. It is also available through KV Vet Supply. (*See RMCA web site merchandise section.)
