Q:

Can dogs eat bananas?

A:

Dogs can eat and digest bananas. Bananas are one of the fruits that are edible for canines, along with cantaloupe, berries, apple, pumpkin and a few others.

Bananas are a nutritious treat for dogs, as they contain nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, fiber, vitamin C and vitamin B6. As nutritious as they are, dog owners should not use bananas to replace a canine's meal. Pet food companies develop high-quality, commercial dog foods to provide complete nutrition specifically for dogs. Dog owners should consult with their veterinarian about any changes to their dog's diet, especially if their dog has problems with weight or any other health issues.
