Yes. Oranges are okay, I'd for sure take the skin off, and maybe only give them small amounts. But oranges are okay to eat.

Koda won't eat a raw diet but he's all over an orange, go figure. I think as long as it's not too much the citric acid won't upset his tummy.

ORGANGES ARE GOOD IN TUMMY!!!
I LOVE THEM, AND WILL TAKE AS MUCH AS YOU WILL GIVE ME. MOMMIE TRIED A LITTLE AT A TIME AT FIRST AND THEN SLOWLY GAVE A LITTLE MORE.
VET TOLD MOMMIE AND DADDY ANYTIME YOU GIVE SOMETIME NEW, TO GIVE A SMALL AMOUNT AND THEN WATCH CLOSELY FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS OR A DAY TO MAKE SURE YOUR NOT ALLERIC TO IT.

Oranges are very acidic, and they contain large doses of vitamins c and b-12, folic acid. Also, the acid could potentially cause diarrhea.
I'd be very careful about just how much citrus fruit you feed a dog.
And, as someone else suggested, try one small piece (1/2 a segment, perhaps) at first to see how it effects your particular dog.
Also, consider green apples as an alternative treat if you want to feed your dog some fruit. Again, small pieces, with or without skin. Some dogs really love this.
