Are Bananas Good For Dogs?
Bananas are a great snack for most dogs and they are high in potassium, vitamin B6, and vitamin C.
Some veterinarians actually recommend giving bananas as a healthy and low-calories snack minus the peanut butter of course!
Bananas are also a fruit that is high in fiber which can help some dogs that are suffering from gastrointestinal problems.
On the flip side, too many bananas can some dogs to have diarrhea and they contain a moderate amount of sugar, so moderation is important.
Dogs can enjoy bananas cut into slices with the peel removed, dehydrated, frozen or even pureed.
As always, it’s important to check with your veterinarian if you have any questions or concerns about giving your dog bananas.
