Hey bro,
I do not have experience with them but I did some searching for you. I was only able to come up with one site that mentioned it and that Aloe Is Toxic. I don't know how trust worthy the site is but I think you should call your vet.

But then again I found a site that says it Is Not Toxic.

As for the majority of the edible vs toxic lists out there....they don't even list Aloe to begin with.

I think your safe. Most veggie eaters can eat toxic plants without harm. Aloe shouldn't be that toxic. His poop should be interesting. LOL
