Going Bananas: Why Dogs Go Bonkers for This Healthy Snack!

Hey there, dedicated dog parents!

We know you're always on the lookout for treats that make your furry friends jump for joy. Today, we're peeling back the layers to explore why bananas are not just a human favorite but also a bark-tastic ingredient in healthy dog treats!

From their natural sweetness to their health benefits, let's dive into why bananas are a tail-wagging success for your four-legged companions and why we here at Lazy Dog Cookie, Co love to include them in our wholesome treats!

1. Nutritional Powerhouse:

Bananas aren't just a tasty tropical fruit – they're a nutritional jackpot for dogs too! Packed with vitamins like B6 and C, as well as essential minerals like potassium and manganese, bananas offer a well-rounded dose of goodness that contributes to your pup's overall health and vitality.

2. Digestive Delight:

When it comes to digestion, bananas are a gentle hero. Their soluble fiber content aids in regulating bowel movements and promoting a healthy gut. If your pup occasionally experiences tummy troubles, bananas can lend a helping paw in keeping their digestive system on track.

3. Energy Booster:

Bananas are a natural source of carbohydrates, which means they provide a quick energy boost for your active pup. Whether they're chasing balls at the park or embarking on outdoor adventures, a banana-infused treat can give your pup the extra oomph they need to conquer their day.

4. Low in Calories, High in Flavor:

For pet parents mindful of their pup's waistline, bananas are a fantastic choice. Low in calories and free from artificial additives, they're a delicious alternative to high-calorie treats. The best part? Your pup won't be able to resist their naturally sweet taste.

5. Fur-tastic Skin Health:

Healthy skin equals a happy pup, and bananas can play a role in achieving just that. The vitamin A found in bananas promotes healthy skin and a shiny coat. So, when you're seeking treats that contribute to your pup's glow, reach for a banana-based delight.

6. Allergen-Friendly Option:

Bananas are less likely to trigger allergies in dogs, making them a suitable option for pups with sensitive stomachs or food allergies. As a hypoallergenic ingredient, bananas can bring joy to pups without causing unwanted tummy upsets.


There you have it, pet pals! Bananas aren't just a human snack; they're a nourishing ingredient that dogs adore. From supporting digestion to boosting energy levels and keeping those tails wagging, bananas have earned their place in the realm of healthy dog treats like our Banana Buddies flavor soft baked Mutt Mallows®️ treat and the Crushed Peanut Sprinkled Banana flavor in our Treat them with LOVE®️ crunchy cookie line! Our famous Original Pup-PIE’s®️ now even come topped with REAL freeze dried pieces of banana, as well as blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Remember to introduce new ingredients gradually and consult your veterinarian if needed before making any significant changes to your pup's diet.

So, next time you're whipping up a batch of homemade treats or scanning the ingredient list of store-bought options, consider the humble banana as a delightful addition that's both wholesome and delicious. Your furry friend will thank you with joyful tail wags and endless affection. 🍌🐾

Wishing you and your pup many banana-filled adventures ahead – full of health, happiness, and the kind of tail-wagging excitement only a ripe banana can bring! 🐶🐾
