Question
I have a 10 month old female pot belly pig. She eats a lot of African Violet leaves. Can that cause her to have diahera.

Answer
African violets are safe to eat. A whole lot of them might give piggy a little indigestion or mild diarrhea, but nothing serious.

If piggy acts like something is seriously wrong, piggy may have eaten something else as well. The danger signs are lethargy and refusing to eat or drink.

If piggy is acting normally, aside from mild diarrhea, chances are piggy will be ok.
