Cantaloupe is a safe fruit to add to a dog's diet. Take care to wash the fruit, and remove the inedible peel and seeds prior to feeding cantaloupe to a dog.
Adding cantaloupe to a dog's diet is a positive way to reduce unwanted weight and is a healthy alternative to prepackaged pet treats. Prepare the fruit in bite-sized pieces appropriate for the dog's size to provide a healthy, low-calorie snack. Adding new foods to a dog's diet may result in vomiting or diarrhea, so be cautious not to introduce more than cantaloupe at first. Observe any changes in the dog's behavior before adding more new foods.
