Yes. Mangoes are a great source of vitamins A, B6, C, and E. They also contain dietary fiber, beta-carotene, anti-oxidants, and potassium. Mangoes help lower cholesterol levels, boost the immune system, improve eyesight, decrease inflammation in the body, and improve digestive health (when served in moderation). That said, the sugar content in dried mangoes is quite high and more concentrated than in fresh mangoes. The drying process also leaches mangoes of some of their healthy perks. In other words, you’re better off giving your dog fresh mangos. But a little dried mango won’t hurt.
Share just one or two bites of dried mango with your dog periodically. Serving more than a few could lead to diarrhea or stomach upset because of the increased sugar content and dietary fiber. (If your dog has gotten into a bag of dried mangoes, these symptoms should pass within 24 hours or so.)
Fruitables makes a popular low-calorie treat for dogs that contains mango. If your dog is crazy about the taste, these treats are a safe, healthy choice in lieu of large amounts of dried mango itself.
