Yes. But in limited amounts. Tangerines are rich in vitamin C, folate, beta-carotene, potassium, and other nutrients that are beneficial to dogs. But tangerines are also rich in natural sugar, which isn’t a healthy part of the canine diet. Too much sugar can cause digestive upset.
Share just a few sections of tangerine (two to three) with your dog only periodically.
But, when possible, offer your dog a treat that isn’t so rich in sugar.
