Mangos (or mangoes) are a popular treat that originates from the southern regions of Asia (no, not Mexico). Many love this treat, but can dogs eat mangos?
Well, the answer isn’t so simple. The short answer is yes, but there are some possible dangers as well.
Can Dogs Eat Mangos?
Dogs can enjoy ripe mango flesh, but they should not ingest the mango skin or pit.
Too much mango flesh can cause diarrhea and vomiting, so your dog shouldn’t have too much of it.
Also keep in mind that mangos also have a decent amount of sugar, so diabetic dogs should never eat a lot of it.
Preparing Mangoes for Dogs
So, how do you prepare your mango so that dogs can enjoy this delicious fruit?
First, you need to make sure the pit and skin are removed so your dog doesn’t consume any of them.
After the pit and skin are removed entirely, cut the mango into small, bite-sized cubes so your pup won’t choke.
Health Benefits Of Mangos
Mango flesh can be consumed and may even offer some health benefits for your dog.
Mangos are a good source of fiber and vitamins A, B6, C, and E. However, mangos still shouldn’t be consumed too often. Keep in mind that this fruit still has sugar in it.
And as I stated before, dogs can choke on mangos, so always be careful and cut the mango into small cubes before you give it to your dog.
So, can your dog eat mangos? The short answer is yes when it’s served properly.
Just keep in mind that mangos are still high in sugar and can be a choking hazard if you are not careful.
Also, remember that dogs shouldn’t consume mango skin or pit, or else your fur-baby may have some issues.
