Full Answer

Bananas are a nutritious treat for dogs, as they contain nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, fiber, vitamin C and vitamin B6. As nutritious as they are, dog owners should not use bananas to replace a canine's meal. Pet food companies develop high-quality, commercial dog foods to provide complete nutrition specifically for dogs.
