Question
HAPPY NEW YEAR DONNA!!!!
Update on Migi - U know Donna after i gave him PEPTO B. His poop was getting better so i picked some fresh green MANGO LEAVES hang them as clippings after that i notice his poop starting changing now to soft soft poop green in color, could the MANGO LEAVES be causing his poop to be this way?? b/c i can't think of anything out of the ordinary besides his usual foods that i give him to cause this. And i don't want to keep giving him MOM & PB b/c hes continuing to eat his hay and snack/foods. Thanks Donna!

Luv,
Me & Migi

Answer
Happy New Year to you and Migi - I'm working today - not too busy so its nice.  The Mango leaves are the ones causing the change in his poop - fresh greens can easily cause a change in his digestion - would not worry about this - just don't feed too much fresh greens to him.  I'm sure he'll get better without MOM or probiotics.  Glad he is eating his hay.  Donna
