1. Aloe Vera
This spiky leafed herb’s medicinal value has been appreciated since ancient times. You’ll be glad to know it’s also good for your dog. Aloe Vera can be either applied topically — using the natural gel in the leaves as a treatment for burns, scrapes, and minor irritations — or given internally to help with conditions such as gas, constipation, and infections.
