We're having a debate, one of us is convinced after reading something online that spinach caused the bloat that caused buttons death.

What are your thoughts on spinach? Abouts and frequencies?

It would be impossible to say, some foods that are more 'gas causing' than other such as Cruciferous vegetables - cabbages/broccoli that type of thing.

We had a piggy that would bloat after certain veg and we found safer foods for her.

Spinach is normally fine for piggies as a treat due to high calcium or piggies may have it once as month, i wouldn't feed it daily or weekly due to calcium
