About bananas

The banana was first cultivated in South East Asia more than 5,000 years ago. Botanically speaking and rather surprisingly perhaps, the banana is in fact a berry. It’s a stoneless fleshy fruit produced from a single flower containing just one ovary which apparently qualifies it as a berry.

Benefits of bananas

Bananas have a multitude of uses and a wide range of benefits for both human beings and dogs.

They are a good source of vitamin C and various B vitamins, particularly vitamin B6. They’re also a good source of iron, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc and vitamin B9. Vitamin B9 is also known as folate or naturally occurring folic acid of course.

The antioxidants in bananas can help your dog’s skin and coat, while their soluble carbohydrates can boost energy levels. (That’s why tennis players snack on them throughout a tennis match).

And, because bananas are high in fibre, their natural enzymes can help soothe the irritation associated with bowel problems.

High in fibre and low in sodium, cholesterol and fat, many vets actually recommend giving dogs bananas. Particularly as an alternative to more fatty, salty, unhealthy treats.

Preparing & serving

Peeled first, your dog’s bananas can be fed raw (mashed, sliced or diced), or cooked as part of a meal or a treat.

Notes

While bananas are good for your dog, bear in mind that they are high in sugar and calories. So they should ideally be fed as an occasional treat, although their high carb content make them an ideal treat for more active dogs.

Always make sure bananas are ripe before feeding them to your dog.
