your dog is a carnivore.. he gets NO benefit from eating any fruits or vegetation. I dont think that orange peels would cause any harm, but they are not going to be any benefit for your dog. ADDED Dogs do not need vitamin C in their diets! Only humans, guinea pigs and some primates need it. Other species produce their own C.
For diabetic dogs, orange peels also contain a large amount of Vitamin C, which we already established can be dangerous to diabetic dogs.

Although a dog may certainly prefer the taste of a tart orange over a lemon or lime, it's still crucial for you to keep your pet away from any and all orange trees. As with lemons, limes and even grapefruit, maintains that citric acid content of oranges may be risky to dogs. The acid is found all over the plant, from the actual fruit and the seeds to the peelings, leaves and stems. The little guys can't avoid the stuff. If your dog gets any of these things into his mouth and eats them, especially in big amounts, issues with the central nervous system may arise.
However, if your dog finds a piece of orange fruit somewhere in your home -- say through digging in the kitchen trash -- and swallows a small piece, he may be OK, apart from diarrhea and a slight bellyache. If you have any concerns regarding his reaction, notify the veterinarian immediately. While a segment of orange should be fine for most dogs, it’s inadvisable to allow your dog to eat orange peel or tangerine skins.

Flea medications can be costly or full of toxins. This home remedy for dogs using orange peels to make an oil is a less expensive and universal way to eliminate fleas. The citrus oil can be applied to the pet and any affected household areas. Do not use this remedy on cats, because the oil can be harmful to their skin.Seeds and peels may also cause some issues for dogs. It is best for the owners to get rid of these before giving them an orange as a treat. While they aren’t toxic to dogs, seeds and peels are much harder to digest compared to the orange’s soft insides. This may lead to upset stomachs.The scents of lemon, lime, tangerine and grapefruit are uplifting, and in aromatherapy the citrus oils are among those that energize people. Your puppy takes a very different view of them: they're a horrible stink, as far as he's concerned. Add squeezed citrus juice to water and spray your furniture. Alternatively, hide pieces of citrus fruit peel beneath a cushion or around your yard, although you will need to remember to replace the peel once it has lost its scent. Reader's Digest suggests mixing used coffee grounds with orange peel as a way of both repelling dogs and fertilizing your plants. Again, citrus repellents are non-toxic for your dog.A lot of people do not enjoy the orange’s pith part. That is where your dogs come in. The whitish, stringy, web-like, and fibrous healthy food is basically a pet-friendly part of oranges. Therefore, if you are eating some oranges, you can share this part to your dog. It is perfect for your cute pet. However, in terms of peel or outer rind, get rid of it because it’s poorly digested and often not recommended.While most dogs can eat oranges without any problem, there are dogs that might get an upset stomach from eating even the orange’s soft parts. They won’t likely suffer from any long-term consequences, yet the dog might be uncomfortable until the orange is out of their body system. Due to this, it’s best to give your dog small oranges until you’re sure that his body can tolerate it. As with any particular food, once you notice your dog behaving strangely after eating orange peels, don’t hesitate to stop feeding him immediately.So immediately do away with any orange peels before you feed any oranges to your dog, as even though they aren’t exactly toxic or poisonous to dogs (such as excess sodium levels), they don’t really have any health benefits to offer your dog, and can only offer them (and you as their owner) a whole lot of digestive problems to deal with.
