Canned peaches can be bad for dogs due to the large amount of sugar content they contain. The syrup and juice used in canned peaches is additional sugar on top of the natural sugar the peach slices would contain.

Will canned peaches hurt dogs?

It’s unlikely to be fatal but dogs can get sick if they have too many slices of canned peaches. Eating these processed fruits can result in digestion problems and symptoms such as diarrhea and vomiting. Some dogs simply aren’t equipped with the stomach to handle the overload of sugar the canned peaches contain.

Some canned peach products may also use artificial sweeteners like xylitol, which is known to be toxic to pets. Such products should be strictly off-limits to your dog. There should be no issues with letting your dog eat fresh peach slices as long as it’s in moderation. As a general rule of thumb, avoid feeding your dog anything that’s heavily processed.
