Is Mango Good for Dogs?

Mango is high in fibre, as well as vitamins A, B6, C, and E, making it nutritious for dogs. Mangos are also pretty sweet, so your dog will probably love them. When ripe, the fruit is naturally soft, however, you should still cut it into small pieces to avoid a potential choking hazard.

Possible Dangers of Eating Mango

Before feeding your dog mango, peel it and remove the pit. While dogs can technically eat the skin, it can be difficult for them to digest, so it’s always best to remove it beforehand. Mango pits, on the other hand, can be a severe choking hazard and get stuck in your dogs digestive tract. The pit of mangos also contains small amounts of cyanide.

If your dog happens to swallow a mango pit, there is a chance that it could pass through their body without difficulty. However, it’s recommended that you call your veterinarian right away, just to be safe. 

Lastly, you should be careful not to give your dog too much mango. Too much of any fruit or vegetable can cause bellyaches and diarrhoea. If you have questions or concerns about feeding your dog mango, consult your vet or a pet nutritionist.
