Is it bad to give your IRN to much fruit? I usually give him 2 or 3 pieces a day... It depends on the day on what it is, but it seems to make him poop a lot more often... Im scared that it is going to dehydrate him or something... I try to switch the fruit up day to day... Pineapple, oranges, apples...
