Dogs Shouldn’t Eat Cantaloupe Rinds

Cantaloupe

Cantaloupe rind isn’t considered toxic to dogs but it can still be a health hazard to dogs in other ways. First, the cantaloupe rind could be a choking hazard to dogs due to its tough outer skin. The smaller the dog, the higher the risk of choking or obstructions forming in the dog’s gastrointestinal tract.

The stress that cantaloupe rind can cause on your dog’s digestive tract may eventually result in symptoms like stomach upsets and diarrhea. You can let your dog eat the cantaloupe flesh as an occasional treat but make sure the rind is removed and safely discarded before then.
