Can dogs eat Bananas?

can dogs eat bananasYes



Yes, bananas are healthy snacks for dogs since they contain biotin, copper, and fiber. However, only serve bananas to dogs in small amounts because of their high sugar and fiber content. Eating these fruits excessively can lead to an upset stomach and diarrhea in dogs.


  • Bananas are packed with potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese, fiber, magnesium, biotin, and copper, all of which benefit your dog's overall health.


  • Excessive consumption of bananas can cause constipation and elevate potassium levels in the bloodstream (hyperkalemia), which can cause heart problems.
  • The high sugar content of the banana can cause weight gain.
  • Banana skins are hard to digest and could make your dog sick or cause intestinal blockage.


  • Bananas can be given to a dog fresh or frozen.
  • Peel the skin; only serve the flesh in moderation; give 1/8 - 1/2 of the fruit to your dog, depending on the size of the dog.
