Question
Hi Donna,
I forgot to tell u that he hasn't had MANGO LEAVES in a very very very long time & i only started to give it to him 2 days ago b/c i read somewhere that greens are suppose to be good for digestive upset at the time he had it. Thanks Donna!

Luv,
Me & Migi

Answer
Fresh greens are  not the best for digestive upset - they make the rumen work over time and cause excess gas - so I would not advise them for Migi, especially with his sensitive digestive system.  A little is fine, but not a lot and not too often.  Donna
