Can Dogs Eat Peaches?

The short answer: Yes, but with caution.

The long answer: Your dog can enjoy the fleshy part of the peach when peaches are in season, but be wary of the hard pit as it can cause choking and intestinal blockage. Not only that, the pit, stems, and leaves contain cyanide—a component that’s toxic to dogs. 

Never feed your dog canned peaches as these are known to be high in sugar. Also, limit his intake of peaches to prevent gastrointestinal upset and diarrhea.

How to feed peaches to your dog: Wash the fruit, check for any abnormalities and take them out. Remove the leaves, stems, and pit. Slice up the fruit into bite-sized pieces before serving it to your dog.

Here are three ideas for peach treats your dog will love:

  1. Bake a batch of peach oatmeal cookies for your pooch to enjoy.
  2. Serve fresh yogurt (as long as he can tolerate dairy) and peach slices as a chilled snack.
  3. Honey, water, and cut-up peaches can turn into frozen pops. Perfect to eat on a hot day!

In summary: Your dog can eat a limited serving of peaches as long as they’re fresh and devoid of cyanide-laden parts, namely the pit, leaves, and stems. Dispose of these parts properly to prevent accidental dog poisoning, choking, and intestinal blockage. To avoid tummy trouble and inflammation, refrain from feeding your dog canned peaches that are loaded with sugar and preservatives. Aside from peaches, discover which other fruits dogs can safely eat in our “can dogs eat” category.
