A semi feral cat visits us and he is mainly white.He has badly sunburnt ears and I wondered if this product would help.
It might help to some extent, but it depends what is going on with the ears. If they are getting sunburnt now, a sunblock would be more helpful. (You have to be careful cats do not swallow this to any great extent as it can be toxic if they do.) However if this is an older cat with ear tips which are eroding away due to a carcinoma resulting from sun damage in the past, then surgery is the only real treatment.
Blooming pets aloe vera gel

My cat has a flea allergy, she has got bumps and scabs around her neck, tail and legs, she is forever licking and scratching, I use Tropiclean Oxy Med products on her, also Frontline once a month. I would like to know if the Aloe vera gel is safe to use on her as she is one month pregnant.
Yes this is a very safe product. Ideally you do not use medicine or treatment in the first 3 weeks of pregnancy in a cat. After that it is less critical and it should be fine to use this product.

No one will insure our dog who has skin allergy. Begore i fork out £500 for allergy test im wondering if aloe will ease his itching
Aloe products do tend to reduce itching but are not a complete answer. They tend to reduce symptoms but will not cure an allergy. I suspect you would do better to investigate the allergy further, rather than try random treatments instead. This product is probably a good one to try and reduce the discomfort from itching, but is not a replacement for proper treatment.

My dog apsakes his head and frequently scratching his ear, vet checked it and concluded maybe so eczema, so gave us hydrocortisone. Don't want to use this all the time
This Aloe vera gel is safe to use and soothing, but not nearly as potent as hydrocortisone. You can try it and see how you get on. It might even be worth trying an exclusion diet for a few weeks as a dietary allergy often triggers persistent ear trouble in dogs (surprisingly). Check with your vet ideally.

My cat has recently developed an allergy to flea bites from fixes who visit our garden - wd aloe Vera help ?
Aloe vera might well soothe the bite reactions but it would not cure the problem. Careful flea control is the answer. Wherever the fleas come from, an effective spot-on treatment used every month through the year is the best option. The skin reaction will gradually subside if you keep the flea population down.
