Can Mango Be Bad for Dogs?

Dogs cannot eat mangoes because they are not toxic, but they do contain a lot of sugar and carbohydrates. Additionally, giving your dog a lot of sugar over an extended length of time can lead to issues with diabetes, obesity, dental health, and upset stomach. 

Mangoes are not the best food for your dog if they already struggle with diabetes or obesity. Always ask your veterinarian about the best foods to choose for your dog’s nutritional requirements. 

There are no known cases of mango allergies in dogs, despite the fact that some people have been known to have allergies to mangoes. In certain individuals, urushiol, a substance found in mango skin, is the allergen that triggers the reaction. Poison oak and poison ivy are two examples of plants that contain the same substance.

Can Dogs Eat Dried Mango?

Dogs may safely consume dried mango if you dehydrate fruit at home. Just keep in mind that since the sugar content has decreased, you should feed them fewer portions than usual. 

Avoid feeding store-bought dried mango to your dog. Usually, additional ingredients and preservatives are added, along with additional sugar.

Can Dogs Eat Mango Seeds?

In the middle of a mango is a single, long, flat seed that resembles a pit. Take out this seed before giving your dog any mango. It may result in an intestinal blockage or present a choking hazard.

How Much Mango Can a Dog Eat?

If you are giving your dog mango as a special treat, give it to him in moderation and in little portions. Mangos and other healthy treats should make up no more than 10% of your dog’s diet. A diet of dog food that is well-balanced should provide the remaining 90%. 

Taking your dog’s weight and breed size into consideration, the following general recommendations for safe serving sizes of mango pieces are provided:  

  • Extra-small dog (2–20 lbs.): 1-2 mango pieces (½ inch thick and ½ inch wide)

          Pugs, Pomeranians, Yorkies, and Chihuahuas are a few examples.

  • two to three small dog (21 to 30 lbs.) mango pieces (one inch wide and ¼ inch thick).

          Examples include miniature Australian Shepherds, Beagles, and Basenjis. 

  • A medium dog (weighing between 31 and 50 pounds) should have five to six pieces of mango, each measuring one inch in width and ¼ inch in thickness.

          Basset Hounds, Border Collies, Australian Cattle Dogs, and Siberian Huskies are a few examples.

  • Thumbprint of mango pieces (one inch in width and ¼ inch in thickness) for a large dog (51–90 lbs.)

          Australian Shepherds, German Shepherds, Pit Bulls, and Labrador Retrievers are a few examples.

  • Large handful of mango pieces (1 inch wide by ¼ inch thick) equals an extra-large dog (91 pounds or more).

          Great Pyrenees, Bernese Mountain Dogs, St. Bernards, and Newfoundlands are a few examples.

Watch out for these signs of an upset stomach if your dog ate some mango while you were not looking or if you fed them too much by mistake. Call your veterinarian immediately if you notice:

  • Absence or reduction of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Behaving downhearted
  • Looking uncomfortable
  • suckling or licking their lips, things, or atmospheres

Bring your dog to the veterinarian right away if you observe any of these more severe symptoms:

  • Vomiting
  • Excessive diarrhea
  • blood in their faeces or vomit
  • Weakness
  • Collapse

How to Feed Your Dog Mango

Can Dogs Eat Mango?

Wash the mango well, remove the seeds, and peel the skin before giving it to your dog. Cut the fruit into tiny cubes that measure one inch. 


Your dog can readily be given little cubes of raw mango directly from the source. 


Once the mango has been chopped, you can mash it up and add it to your dog’s food bowl or KONG toy.


Just pop the stuffed KONG in the freezer or freeze some cubed mango pieces for a later frozen treat.


Blend some mango with other dog-safe fruits like bananas, watermelon, and blueberries to create an extra-special treat. Next, mix in a small amount of sugar-free, xylitol-free yoghurt that is entirely plain. This mixture can be frozen in your dog’s Kong toy for later use, or it can be poured over their meal. 

Moreover, you can try this recipe for a green smoothie with banana, mango, and pineapple that is safe for dogs.
