Dante has a little bit off my mum when she makes a smoothie but only like a little bit, like the end of the banana. He loves them!
My dogs eat the odd bit of banana & raw carrot... in small amounts it's fine

According to Cesar Milan bananas yes, banana skins no. Cari loves bananas - I've got some half bananas in the freezer for her to try she wasn't impressed with the frozen kong :blushing:
Bananas are supposed to be good for putting weight on dogs. They often feed them to greyhounds. William loves them.
Mine likes banana and raw carrot also.
They are perfectly safe, but are high in carbohydrates, so shouldnt be fed too often, and in large quantites, to prevent weight gain.
I always thought u couldnt, you learn something everyday
Banana like many fruits are ok for dogs but too much will ferment in the stomach so only small pieces occasionally.
perfectly safe mine luv em..........they don't eat a whole one
Thanks for the replies everyone.
Digby sat and waited patiently for a bite of my banana this morning, but I wasn't sure on whether or not bananas were ok, he might get a bite of mine now in the morning
Banana skins are slightly toxic - to humans too. The banana itself is fine, but mine gets the runs if fed too much. I sometimes give dried banana as a treat (not the sugar syrup coated crisp ones, but the pure brownish squidgy ones).
Mine eat banana, have done for years they also like the odd occasional piece of apple too
Always give Dylan a bit of banana if im having one, he loves it
Yes they are safe and a good source of potassium. They should not however be given to a dog suffering from kidney disease because of the potassium. I had to stop giving my little Dennis his banana treats last year when I found out he had kidney disease.
