The short answer: Yes, they can eat oranges and tangerines!
Oranges, tangerines, and clementines are not toxic to dogs (although the citric acid in them can be a problem for some cats). However, they are high in sugars and can potentially cause GI upset if your pet eats too many of them. We recommend only giving your dog 1 or 2 segments per day to avoid leading to obesity or other issues.
But not too many, please
Treats should not make up more than 10% of your pet’s daily calories. If you want to feed your dog treats, their daily food intake should be decreased by 10% to help prevent obesity.
Grapes and raisins can be toxic to pets. Never feed them to your pet at any time.
A good diet has the right vitamins and minerals
Vitamins and minerals are key components of your pet’s diet. Make sure your furry BFFs are getting the right ones for the right reasons.
