Yes dogs can eat bananas, but before you let your pup munch these sweet, yellow fruits, there are some things you should know. Like many other good things, bananas are best enjoyed by dogs in moderation. They are full of beneficial vitamins and minerals that are good for dogs, but they’re also sugary and aren’t meant to be a regular part of a dog’s diet.
Peeled bananas are best for dogs, but if he gobbles one whole, don’t worry. Banana peels aren’t toxic to dogs. “That’s not to say eating a banana whole won’t cause your dog to throw up or have diarrhea,” Purina Senior Nutritionist Jan Dempsey says. “That reaction means his system isn’t accustomed to digesting all the fiber a banana peel contains.” It’s always best to peel this fruit and cut it into appropriate serving sizes.
