Does your dog go bananas for homemade dog treats? Bananas are a great low-calorie treat for dogs since they’re high in potassium, magnesium, vitamins C and B6, biotin, and fiber. They’re also low in cholesterol and sodium. Because of their high sugar content, bananas should be given as an occasional treat, and not be part of your dog’s main diet.
For some easy, no-bake banana dog treat options – offer them to your dog sliced, mashed, or in frozen chunks. Another great way to serve them to your pup is to put them into a chew toy or food puzzle and then freeze it. This approach provides your dog with mental stimulation and some cool relief during warmer months. Any way you serve them, be sure to peel the bananas for your dog before consumption.
