In the summer months, there is nothing more refreshing than being able to eat some cold mangoes and of course, it is only normal to want to share this lovely, fulfilling fruit with the love of your life, your dog.

Mangoes are so delicious and tempt us to eat as much as possible. Mangoes are seasonal fruit and are mainly available during hot summer season. Mango is mostly cultivated in tropical regions. Scientific name of mango is Mangifera indica. There are many cultures around the world that use the fruit and leaves for ritual purposes and decorations.

The Benefits of Feeding Your Dog Mangoes

This tasty fruit has lots of health benefits, which many are not aware of. This article covers all the amazing benefits of mangoes.

Research has shown antioxidant compounds in mango fruit have been found to protect against cancers. These compounds include quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid and methylgallat, as well as the abundant enzymes.2.  The high levels of fiber, pectin and vitamin C help to lower serum cholesterol levels, specifically Low-Density Lipoprotein (the bad stuff).  Mangoes can be used both internally and externally for the skin. Mangos clear clogged pores and eliminate pimples. Mangoes are rich in vitamin A, which promotes good eyesight and prevents night blindness and dry eyes. The tartaric acid, malic acid, and a trace of citric acid found in the fruit help to maintain the alkali reserve of the body.

How to Feed Your Dog Mangoes

Dogs can and should eat mango slices because they contain enzymes for breaking down protein. The fiber in mangos also helps digestion and elimination.

Finally, the generous amounts of vitamin C and vitamin A in mangos, plus 25 different kinds of carotenoids keep your immune system healthy and strong.

But of course, you did not need all these reasons. Given mangoes are so yummy, I am sure that knowing that the answer to the question can dogs eat mangoes is yes can be enough reason to feed them to your dogs.

Mango is a safe food for dogs to eat. Keep in mind though that the seeds of most fruits contain cyanide, which is poisonous to dogs as well as humans. Also, the big mango pit can get stuck in your dog’s digestive system, blocking it and ultimately killing him. I would stay far away from mango pits.

If you are a human, mango leaves can be very good for you because they are said to fight diabetes. Please refrain from giving these to your dogs because any sorts of leaves are not good for your dog.

Always remove seeds from fruit before giving them to your dog to be safe. Too much fruit can give your dog a stomachache or diarrhea. Also, there are a small number of dogs that are allergic to fruit so even if dogs can eat mangoes, I would make sure that I test it out by giving a tiny amount to my dog before giving him a bigger portion.

  1. Yay! My husband and I found a mango in the back of the fridge and after feeding almost the entire thing to our girls, (first slice was on accident, it was so funny seeing them slide on the floor!) I looked at my hubby and said are these good for dogs! And google directed us to you.

  2. I am wondering if dried mangoes are good for dogs. My boys got into my dried mango stash and ate the entire bag. They seem fine, but I wanted to make sure. I already give them dried yams or sweet potatoes that I purchase as a treat from the pet store, but I am just curious and worried about this.

    Any advice or incite would be greatly appreciated.

  3. Do more research! Mango Leaves are NOT good for people. Mango “Meat” is only good for humans. The Leves the Skins and sap from the tree contain The chemical components of POISON IVY. If you are allergic to poison ivy sumac or oak WATCH OUT! Many online authors forget to tell this. Research mangos mango Allergy “mango mouth”. Dont learn the hard Way.

  4. I have 5 dogs 2 boston terriers 1 lab 1 chow sled dog mix and 1 pitbull. they are all sweet and love mangoes I even make them smoothies. I feed hem carrots peanut butter celery and many other foods that humans eat. they love it and it is very healthy for our canine friends! hope I helped

  5. Oh, im so glad! i fed my old 12 year old blacklab-bassethound a mango and i thought i wasnt supposed to. I fed her it because shes going to die soon and i wanted to give her my mango for a goodbye human treat! I love you bo:(

  6. Mango’s sap, found on the leaves, at the stem scar on the fruit and on the fruit’s skin, can cause a rash very similar to poison oak or ivy. Personal experience confirms this. Rinse the fruit under plenty of running water when you get home. Also, stay out from under a mango tree during a rain storm.

  7. Thanks for the info on mangos. Tillie seems to like them.

    She also gets baby carrots and frozen broccoli as treats. The frozen broccoli florets are like popsicles in the summer time.

    You do a good job with this blog and the dog info.

  8. That was so informative ! My dog loves Alphonso mangoes like craaazyy….just the smell of it soo intoxicating ;p

  9. I am not sure about mangoes being good for dogs. My 120lb dog throws up every time he eats a mango. Maybe a little Pug throw up is not bad, but my 120 lb Cane Corso throw up is no joke!

      Just incase you gave them the mango skin, they can’t have it. And also, they might be allergic to mangoes, so before you give them a fruit that they’re allowed just give them a small piece, just to check. But maybe you should check with a vet.

  10. I know they’re not supposed to eat the skin, but I have a mango orchard, and my German Shepherd loves to pick fallen fruits. He eats the whole thing, skin and all except for the seed, and it never affected him. What do you think.

  11. I just discovered my beagle loves mango!! Now that I know it’s not just safe but good for him he’ll be getting it more often! (In small doses; I still have to pick up his poop)

  12. I gave a few pieces of dussheri mango to nia our mongrel. She lapped it up. Just to ensure it is safe I googled and ended up here. thank you for all the info

  13. I had to bring my dog to the vet for him not feeling good, had a rash/hives in his ears, belly and paws – nothing had changed in his diet other than he and I had a mango everyday for a week….
    The vet immediately stated that Mangos have the same type Poison Ivy, Sumac type reaction. its because of how they’re grown, its the skin that causes the allergic type reaction not the meat.
    I also was having a hive reaction, I stopped the mango both our hive/rash went away.

  14. I hope my baby is different. Him n i love fruit n veggies n he eats everything but tomatoes n bananas. So now that mangoes r in Season i bought a whole bag for us n he just loves it. He sits for half an hour Lickin the pit, but today he swallowed it whole. He seems fine for now, i just hope hes goin to be ok. He doesnt look uncomfortable or lethargic, im just so worried about him. Pls help me.
