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).
Make sure your dog is not eating anything but the mango flesh. Remove the peel, which is difficult to digest, don’t share the leaves of the plant, and don’t allow your dog to eat the pit or seeds. The pit can become a choking hazard or cause digestive blockage, and the seeds contain cyanide, which is toxic to dogs. Serve no more than a quarter cup of fresh mango (for a larger dog) periodically as a snack. Eating too much mango can lead to diarrhea or stomach upset because of the fruit’s sugar and dietary fiber content.
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.
