Turns out there is some super tasty "human food" out there that can be used to spice up your pup's usual chow. We love experimenting with fur-baby approved foods that pack healthy benefits + taste delish, and have found one kitchen staple in particular that really gets the tails waggin': bananas!
There are a few things y'all should know about feeding 🍌 to your pups, and we've got the scoop.

✅ They're high in potassium! This means bananas are great for muscle and blood vessel function as well as for regulating the acidity of body fluids.
✅ Bananas are fiber loaded, which makes this tasty fruit a handy home remedy for the occasional bout of doggy diarrhea or constipation.
✅ They're magnesium rich. Magnesium is important for energy transport and protein building in your dog's body.
✅ Hellooooo pyridoxine (vitamin B6)! Bananas help metabolize proteins and regulates blood cell function so the blood can bring more oxygen to the brain and muscle.
✅ They're rich in Vitamin C, an antioxidant that protects your dog's cells from damage and helps build cartilage.
✅ As amazingly beneficial as bananas are for your pup, keep in mind they should only be snacked on as treats and should not be a regular part of your fluff nugget's diet.

🐶🍴Pup prep: mash a banana and mix it in with your dog’s food as an occasional treat. Easy peasy!
For extra spoiling, toss the mashed banana into the microwave for 20-30 seconds before serving OR freeze some slices ahead of time for a chilly treat on a steamy day.
Pssst...bananas are one of the star ingredients in our Sweet Tooth dog treat baking mix. Check it out here!
