    I have heard of this before. Does anyone use this? How often do you use it? What kind of aloe do you use? How much of each thing do you put in?

    I use pure aloe juice found in the pharmacy dept at Wally World in a spray bottle (full strength)

    Is there anything smaller than that? I think that might be a little too big.

    Ahh I wondered what Isle it was in at wal-Mart, i found it on their website but it never said where it was Explains why I never can find it down the Juice Isle


    You'd probably be able to find it smaller at Health food stores , but Aloe is great to have around, It's not just for the birds ;)

    but with the ratio for a spray for birds I do believe it is 50/50

    you can also Put that in their water just like Grape See Extract Or ACV

    i think it comes in a smaller size - same brand - you should be able to call the pharmacy at wallyworld and see though if you don't want to make a trip

    aloe vera juice is also sold at health food stores - you just want to make sure it is pure aloe juice (it should say so on the label if it is)

    Wally World likes to hide things - it is usually on the bottom shelf which makes it even harder to find!

    I think the ratios are somewhat of a personal preference as well - for my CAG, I use it full strength, but for other types of birds, it may be better to dilute it

    Thank you! Squeeky has been having a little molt going on and I know he has been itchy. I was thinking aloe might help him.

    it's a good idea Miriam, it is very soothing. One of my dogs has severe allergies and I use it on her as well and it helps

    Would a 50-50 solution work for Koba or should I use 100%? She's a chewer and I think this may help a bit.

    I use Aloe Juice that I buy from a healthfood store. They have it in smaller bottles. I mix it 50/50 with water and spray my birds with that. I had a foster Too that was a plucker and it really seemed to help her.

    Do you just spray & leave it on...let them preen as normal? Or is it best to give a bath soon after?

    I finally got mine today - will be mixing it in their spray bottle tomorrow :)

    but I forget - we can add it to their drinking water too can't we? Just like ACV or GSE?

    Going to give it a whirl in their spray bottle this coming Winter. Think they will need all the help they can to keep looking beautiful!
