No. Orange peels aren’t toxic, but they are tough for dogs to digest and can cause an upset stomach. If you decide to share a bit of orange with your dog, make sure to peel the fruit first.
Symptoms to Look For
If your dog has eaten an orange peel, he should be fine. But he may try to vomit up the peel or it could cause diarrhea, but any symptoms should pass within a day. Call your vet if you notice anything more lasting.
