Yes. Honeydew melon offers several benefits for dogs, including vitamins B6 and C, potassium, and dietary fiber, which improves digestive health.
Honeydew melon does have higher sugar content than some other treats, so you want to share it in moderation. Definitely don’t share honeydew melon if your dog is diabetic. You also don’t want to give your dog too much dietary fiber—this can be hard on your dog’s digestive system. Be sure to remove the rind and seeds and only offer a few bites of honeydew melon periodically. If you notice any changes in your dog’s bowel movements, you might be sharing too much honeydew and should back off.
