Can Bulldogs Eat Bananas?

Bulldogs and Bananas

Yes, dogs (bulldogs inclusive) can eat bananas. In moderation, bananas are a great low-calorie treat for dogs. They’re high in potassium, vitamins, biotin, fiber, and copper. They are low in cholesterol and sodium, but because of their high sugar content, bananas should be given as a treat, not part of your dog’s main diet.

Banana Benefits

Bananas are packed with potassium and vitamin C, and they're also good sources of vitamin B6 as well as manganese, biotin, and copper, all of which benefit your dog's overall health. Bananas are also rich in magnesium, which may help your dog absorb other vitamins more efficiently and promote healthy bone growth, says the American Kennel Club (AKC).


Drawbacks of Bananas for Dogs

Bananas are also high in sugar, so they should only be given as an occasional special treat, not made a regular part of your dog's diet. And while the fiber content in bananas can be good for your dog in small amounts, if your dog eats too much this could actually cause constipation instead of helping to prevent it.


Say No to Banana Peels

While they aren't toxic to your dog, banana peels are hard to digest and could make your dog sick or cause intestinal blockage. So be sure to discard banana peels in a place where your dog can't get to them. The garbage disposal is likely the best place for banana peels, especially if your dog has a tendency to dig through the trash.
