If you are looking to keep your dog lean, or to help your dog lose weight, or to replenish and refresh an active dog… bananas are a great way to go.
Can dogs eat bananas? Yes, they can!
Most people know, or should know that the following foods are dangerous for your dog: Chocolate, and grapes, and raisins, and onions and garlic.
Even though grapes would be easy as a treat, they are very dangerous for your pet.
Normally, a dog should basically stay with dog food. But, there are exceptions. I have been giving my own dog, with my veterinarian’s blessing, apples, pears, bananas, and my dog loves these. Of course, I don’t feed her a fruit salad, or even a whole fruit at a time. But, fruit and vegetables do make great snacks.
One fruit that is exceptionally good for your dog is a banana.
They have a smooth texture, and a sweet taste. And, bananas have amino acids and electrolytes,they contain minerals, vitamins, and potassium. They carry a big punch in the nutritional department. Because they also have a natural sugar content, they make a great boost for dogs that are active working, or playing.
Other foods dogs can eat, but of course, in moderation are: melon, and berries, peanut butter (which I often spread inside a bone), or cream cheese. Also, again, in moderation, they can eat green beans, and carrots. Whole baby carrots make a great chew treats. Pears are also an option.
However, it is always best to check with your veterinarian before you change their diet. Or include other than dog foods into their diet. And, always introduce these foods slowly. If your dog’s digestive system is not used to these foods, they could get upset tummies. Or worse.
My dog, Nikki, loves all of the above. They make great treats.
