Hi everyone!
We have clovers all over our backyard and I wanted to know if it would be ok to let Eddie eat them during his lawn time?78DD083E-6A8C-414B-9128-4E1C7A2C302D.jpegHere is a picture of them. I have also heard they are high in calcium, is this true? Eddie is very sensitive to calcium and I want to make sure it wouldn’t affect him. Sorry if it’s a rather obvious answer, I’m not very experienced when it comes to plants.
Thanks! 😊

There is a lot of clover in my lawn too but the piggies only pick at now and again. They much prefer the grass. I don't think clover is harmful but not sure about calcium content.

Clover is fine for them to have in moderation. I also believe it is considered high in calcium but I don’t know how high
If he has bladder problems then I’d perhaps avoid letting him be on it just to safe
