Frenchies already have a hard time chewing their food. Their flat faces make that task a little more difficult for them than regular-faced dogs. You want to make sure that your dog can chew the fruit well before swallowing it.

While Frenchies can eat the skin, it is not a good idea to feed them any. The skin is harder for them to chew and harder for the little dog to digest. It can lead to some digestive issues. It is just best to remove the skin and save yourself and your dog some problems.

Then, the seeds or pit in mangoes can be a choking hazard. They are hard to chew and your dog may try to swallow them without chewing. It is best to keep seeds from your dog.

Don’t forget that there is a lot of sugar in mangoes. If your dog is diabetic then you do not want to feed him or her anything that can bring them severe harm. This is not to mention the kidney problems your dog may have will be made worse by the phosphorus and starches inside the mango.

Mangoes are said to be higher in sugars and calories than other fruits. This means you do not want to give your dog more than a few slices each time you serve them. In fact, keep this treat to only a few slices to be on the safe side of things.

This is not an everyday serving. This is more of a once in a while serving as a nice treat for your Frenchie. This dog breed has a tendency to gain a lot of weight and you do not want to add to that problem.

If by chance your dog does eat a seed, it may go through his or her system without causing any trouble. But if you see your dog acting a bit strange or not eating that well, contact your vet.

The seed may have caused a clog somewhere. You just have to be careful when serving any fruit, not just mangoes.
