Oranges aren’t toxic to dogs.

They are a good source of vitamin C, and other vitamins.

However, they are rich in natural sugars and can possibly induce some gastrointestinal problems, such as diarrhea or vomiting.

How many oranges can I offer my dog?

I recommend that you offer your dog, as a maximum, 1 or 2 segments of orange daily.

Feeding your dog too much oranges can lead to weight gain.

If your dog suffers from diabetes then it’s not a good idea to feed him oranges.

How to Prepare the Orange:

  • Peel away the rind
  • Clean out any seeds
  • Chop the natural oranges slices into smaller pieces
  • Offer your dog the little pieces as a treat

You should introduce your dog to the fruit gradually.

Start with a tiny amount of orange and if he doesn’t present any adverse reaction you can give him a little more.

Due to the acidic content of citrus fruits dogs can experience diarrhea or upset stomach.

So use your best judgment when offering your dog oranges.
