Ripe mangoes need not be sliced into small pieces unless you are feeding a small dog. Dogs love mangoes and too much may cause diarrhoea and bellyaches in dogs because dogs are not designed to handle large fiber contents.

Be ready to call the vet if the dog had consumed the pit by mistake. Dogs can eat mangoes but not the seeds because seeds contain cyanide which is poisonous to dogs.
