Can dogs eat cantaloupe?

Yes, cantaloupe is safe for you dog to eat when it is prepared properly.

Cantaloupe can be a healthy treat alternative, but it does have a high sugar content so diabetic dogs should avoid cantaloupe and healthy dogs should be given pieces as a treat occassionally, not part of a daily diet.

A great source of vitamins A, B, B6, complex C, potassium, magnesium, niacin, thiamine, folic acid, and pantothenic acid, cantaloupe has many benefits. The combination of high water and fiber content in the fruit makes it an all-natural way to help keep your dog avoid constipation and dehydration.

The dangers of cantaloupe are in the rind. Just like with watermelon, the rinds of melons can be choking hazards for dogs and should always be discarded. Only the fruit of melons should be served. One nice thing about cantaloupe that is different from many other fruits is that the seeds of cantaloupes are not poisonous to dogs.

The best serving size should be a 1-inch wedge of cantaloupe. Diarrhea is common for dogs who eat too much melon, so be sure to monitor your dog’s intake.
