Maybe. But we don’t recommend it. The only thing your dog needs to drink is clean, filtered water. While some fruits do contain beneficial nutrients (and their juices do as well), a healthy canine diet doesn’t call for fruit. Moreover, most fruit juices contain added sugars, which are not healthy for dogs.
Whole juice is safe for dogs, but—again—not necessary. If you do share whole juice with your dog, share only small amounts only occasionally.
For example, you might offer your dogs a few slurps of fresh orange juice from the plate you used to cut oranges. But don’t pour juice from the jug into your dog’s bowl. Be sure to avoid juices containing artificial flavors, coloring, or other additives. And never share grape juice with your pet.
