Can dogs eat oranges?
Oranges, tangerines and clementines are not toxic to dogs. However, dogs should not eat the peel of an orange; it’s hard to digest and break down sometimes causing gastrointestinal upset.
Oranges are full of potassium, fibre, and nutrients but also contain quite a lot of natural sugar and some vets recommend that oranges shouldn’t make up more than 10% of your pet’s daily calories. Eating too many oranges could cause gastrointestinal upset in dogs due to their high levels of sugar.
Oranges are full of vitamin C which is great for a dog’s immune system but can affect blood values and potentially spike insulin levels in diabetic dogs. For diabetic dogs, it’s best to stay away from oranges.
You should not feed your dog orange juice; water is the best choice of drink.
