Are mangoes safe for dogs to eat?

I just wanted to know, can dogs eat mangoes? Is it healthy for dogs or not. I saw some information here http://www.dogcarehelp.com/can... but I want to confirm here also. 

Answers

Mangoes are safe! They can safely eat the fruit and the peel as long as you remove the seed. The seed can be a choking hazard. As long as you peel it first you're good to go!

https://www.akc.org/expert-adv... Although I am not a dog owner nor a vet, according to the American Kennel Club the answer is yes in moderation.I would also check with the vet and what allergies if any that your dog may have, as well as how you prepare it ( I would be cautious on giving the dog the pit, I personally wouldn't but that is just me). One could cut them up into small pieces, or even puree the food if that is easier. Hopefully you take this information with a grain of salt, but that is what I found.

Mangoes are safe to eat, but make sure to take the mango seed out because they can choke on it. Always peel the fruit before giving it to your dog.

Dogs can safely enjoy the Mangoes, even the skin. Your dog could choke on a mango seed, so you should always peel the fruit off the seed before giving it to your dog. However I have heard of cases where pet owners had a mango tree in their back yard and the dog would eat so many that he would get a little more liquid poop. So just monitor the amount they consume.

Mangoes are nutritionally safe to eat, but be aware of the choking hazard of the pit and skin. I would recommend peeling the skin off and cutting the fruit off the pit before giving to your dog. Also, small doses are advised, because of the high sugar content. Always observe your pet when introducing new food to them to be sure of its effect on them.

The fruit after peeled and pitted is safe for dogs Mango has a lot of nutrients. Make sure to avoid the pit as a choking hazard and could be toxic. As with any new food just give a small amount at first to see if it agrees with the dog. Otherwise ongoing I wouldn't give more than a few bites a day since it is high in sugar

Yes, dogs can eat mangoes. Its a good source of vitamin A and potassium and has some other nutrients. Just don't let them eat the seed because it contains cyanide and will choke them. Enjoy your mangoes!

Dogs can eat mangoes, just be sure to peel and pit them first. It's the pits that can really cause a problem, as they weren't meant to be digested, and some dogs are highly sensitive to the compounds in them. I'm not sure if the skin is "bad" for them, but when I lived in Florida, ours would always gag on the skin, because it really doesn't like to come apart. The end result was usually a solid gag, hack, then vomit of the skin. (We had a tree, and they would get to the ones that fell before we did, so many times the mango wasn't chopped into bite sized pieces.  They usually didn't want the pit) Unlike us, they can't separate the flesh from the skin of the mango, so they get a giant slimy lump that slips down the throat. - Mango should be considered a treat, as too much can cause diarrhea, and the high sugar content isn't something they would eat in the wild.  Even if they did, it would be seasonal; moderation.

I would say as a treat not as a daily intake. Dogs don't usually digest mangos, as do burgers, or any other "human" foods. As long as its in moderation (and not chocolate!) then it should be okay.

Any time you have a question about anything food, medication put in the internet and ask the questions. Things will pull up on this. This is what I do when I have questions. There are vets you can ask for a small fee too.

Mangoes are a treat most dogs enjoy. Before feeding your dog mango, peel it and remove the pit. Like most fruits, the seed is a choking hazard. Just be sure not to give them too much- too much of any fruit can give them diarrhea.

Yes. Just remove the skin and put also don't give too much of them because with any fruit or veggie, it can cause stomach upset/ diarrhea. If it does happen, add some plain pureed pumpkin in food. You could also give some slippery elm, and probiotics will help get the gut back in balance. Oh, and don't forget if your dog has diarrhea, make sure he/she has plenty of fresh cool water, itll help prevent dehydration which can happen with it.

First off, this source of information its unreliable, second i am not a scientist or a researcher so what i say can be true or not, but i do have experience, i used to have two dogs at my house, they were calm and cute, but one of them eat more than the other, he eated everything from meat to vegetables, while the other one just ate the normal dog food, they have gone to the veterinary and both of them are as healthy so i think it should be fine, then again this is just a thought of mine, i am nobody to say if is or not healthy so please do some more research.

Dogs are primarily carnivores, meaning they almost always naturally eat meat. Some dogs may nibble on vegetation as a supplement, but they shouldn't have sugar in any significant quantity (which is naturally found in fruit). A little bit of fruit will likely not harm the average dog should they happen to eat some, but it isn't advisable to give fruit to dogs on a regular basis. Check with your veterinarian if you have concerns about your animal's health.

Dogs can eat mangoes safely, however it is recommended to peel them and remove the pit (to remove a possible choking hazard). Also, feed in moderation and remove mangoes and/or stop giving as a treat should they begin to have an adverse reaction. As always, consulting your veterinarian for any questions or concerns is never a wrong way to go. Additionally, the AKC has a great article delving into this topic further: https://www.akc.org/expert-adv...

The fruit of the mango is perfectly fine for a dog to eat, whether it's fresh or dried, but there are some important things to keep in mind. First and foremost, remove the pit. There is conflicting information about whether the pit is toxic to dogs or not, but it definitely poses a choking threat. Secondarily, you'll probably want to limit the amount of mango you give your dog. Feeding fruits and veggies to dogs who don't normally eat them can cause some regretful digestive issues. Finally, mangoes have a LOT of sugar. Wisely, veterinarians recommend not feeding too much mango as to not disrupt your dog's sugar intake and avoid future health problems like diabetes. That being said, my dog LOVES mango! You can safely treat your dog to this fruit, but it's probably best to keep it to a few bites.

Before feeding your dog mango, you should peel it and remove the pit. Dogs can technically eat the skin, it can be difficult to digest, so it's best to remove it beforehand. Mango pits, on the other hand, can be a serious choking hazard and get stuck in your dogs digestive tract. The pit of a mango also contains small amounts of cyanide.

The skin and the pit of the mango can be hard to digest and overall dangerous to ingest. However the meat of the mango should be okay if it is tender and cut into pieces, making it easy for your dog to swallow and digest. According to www.dogster.com, the meat of the mango is safe and provides vitamins A, B6, C, and E.

The skin of a mango may be too tough for many dogs to digest and the seeds should never be given to dogs as they may splinter and create a choking and digestive tract hazard but the fruit of the mango can be very nutritious.

In the same way that chocolate is toxic to cats and dogs, some fruits and vegetables are too. Onions, garlic, wild mushrooms, avocado, and rhubarb are all poisonous to pets, and corn is also a common allergen. You should also avoid feeding grapes and raisins to your pet, as they can cause kidney damage. I would Advise not to.

You always want to think twice before feeding your furry family member anything that would be considered table food. Mangoes, however, are packed with nutrients that your dog can enjoy safely, and in moderation. Make sure you cut the mango pieces off of the seed because that can be a choking hazard.

My Alaskan Malamute enjoys all types of fruit (apples, bananas, pineapple, strawberries, etc.) so I'd assume mangoes are fine for dogs. Then again it depends on how big your dog is and how much you give. My dog is huge (75 pounds) and can eat a sliced apple or banana at once and be fine. If you have a smaller dog you should first research how much you can give. I googles if it's safe for dogs to eat mangoes, and it says that it is but as with most other fruit out there, they can't eat the seed/pit. Hope this helps!
