Cantaloupe?

Food, Fitness and how to keep them healthy.

Okay, dumb question. Haha, I was cutting up a cantaloupe and dropped a piece of rine on the floor. Forgot about it and Toby sauntered into my bedroom with it. I took it away from him just in case, but is cantaloupe bad for dogs? Would it hurt to let him chew on a little bit or should it be avoided all together? I'm guessing it would probably give him diarrhea and I don't want that. haha

Trouble eats both cantaloupe and watermelon. Loves it. Don't know about the rind though :|

I'm not sure the rind would be digestible -- I think it would be like corn cob and a ready-made intestinal blockage. I would keep it away from him just in case. The fruit (in small quantities) should be fine, though.

Thanks! I gave him two little pieces. :) But kept the rind away from him. What he did get off of the rind before I noticed was just some of the melon because I am a really bad melon cutter apparently and there was plenty left on the rind. haha

Kayden came trotting up the stairs a while back with a whole cantaloupe in his mouth like it was a giant ball. He couldn't quite figure out why I was so mad at him :|

Haha I saw that while I was searching for cantaloupe to see if there were any older posts. Cracked me up. I could totally see him doing that.
