What an interesting question! I assume she is otherwise acting fine since eating the beetroot leaves. The answer is maybe. This is not a documented problem, though. And if related to ingestion, the discoloration should clear within 1-2 days.
Beta vulgaris (beets) will contain both some anthocyanins and betalains, both are pigment type of compounds. One of the specific betalains in beets that is in the highest amounts is betanin, also called beetroot red, which is used as a food additive for its color properties.Yes, excess intake can color urine and/feces in several species.

Hi joey, would you say that the liquid she passed after pooing is
therefore fairly normal
So in your opinion would you say that this appears fairly normal
