Yes. Nectarines are a good source of vitamins A and C, potassium, magnesium, and dietary fiber, which is good for a dog’s digestive system.
Share nectarines in moderation. Nectarines are higher in sugar content than some treats. You also don’t want to give your dog too much fiber, as this can cause diarrhea or an upset stomach. Be sure not to share the nectarine pit, as it does contain trace amounts of cyanide. And avoid canned nectarines, which contain preservatives and even more sugar than the natural fruit. But your dog will enjoy a few bits of sliced, fresh nectarine from time to time.
