The preliminary studies on the potency of Aloe vera and Shea butter was conducted on fifteen WAD goats naturally infected with sarcoptic mange. The mixture Aloe vera and Shea butter was in ratio 1:1.This mixture was applied twice per week for a period of six weeks before complete recovery from mange was noticed. The mixture was found to be effective. All infected goats which were seriously affected showed complete recovery and (100%) healing to the mixture although it had no significant effect (P>0.05) on the haematological and biochemical parameters measured in the Sarcoptic scabei infected goats before and after treatment.
