5 REASONS YOU SHOULD BE SPOILING YOUR DOG WITH BANANAS
Posted by Tessa Rousselle on
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 ingredient 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 the 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 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 🍌 into the microwave for 20-30 seconds before serving OR freeze some slices ahead of time for a chilly treat on a steamy day.
