Aloe vera has been proved to cure ailments and improve health in both humans and animals. Myrada Krishi Vigyan Kendra at Gobichettipalayam, Erode district, Tamil Nadu, took up a project to study the usefulness of this plant on sheep and found that it was able to not only cure the internal parasitic infestations in sheep but also foster healthy growth of the animals.
