THE AUTHOR - David Urch
I was encouraged to embark on this book by the many animal owners who frequently ask me for advice on how to use AIoe Vera effectively. it is the culmination of my personal experience of using Aloe Vera in veterinary practice. The book is written for all animal owners - whether pet or horse owner breeder or farmer - who would like to learn from my practical experience of using this plant in helping certain diseases of animals . The book is not intended to be used as a diagnostic tool, but lo support owners in using Aloe Vera as a complementary preparation under the direction of their veterinary surgeon.
I also hope that sharing my experiences will start the process of opening the sceptical mind of other veterinary professionals to the benefits of complementary preparations. When I was first introduced to Aloe Vera, I was very dubious as to the supposed benefits. I have now seen for myself, on numerous occasions, that Aloe Vera can perform as well as, and frequently better than, conventional preparations - without side-effects.
This doesn't mean that I turn my back on conventional medicine - on the contrary - the step-by-step guidelines for treatment represent an integrated approach. The majority of the conditions covered in the book can successfully be treated using Aloe Vera alone - but some diseases are best resolved by a combination of complementary treatment and conventional medicine and I recommended these where needed. I have also incorporated practical first aid advice for owners to carry out whilst waiting to see a veterinary surgeon together with suggestions for animal welfare.
The field of complementary medicine is dynamic and ever changing, and l am sure that Aloe Vera has still some as yet undiscovered gifts to give us. I did not set out to cover all aspects of the use of Aloe Vera in veterinary practice. This book is just a start, and I hope that by sharing my knowledge the animals in our care will enjoy a better quality of life.
