Can French Bulldogs Eat Bananas?

Every time I go in the kitchen my French Bulldog follows my every move.  Open the refrigerator, open a cabinet door, or reach for a banana and he eyes me the entire time.  Speaking of bananas, can French Bulldogs eat bananas without concern?  Let’s dig in and find out.

So Can French Bulldogs Eat Bananas?

Yes, it is ok for your French Bulldog to eat Bananas in moderation. This yellow fruit is a great low-calorie treat for your Frenchie. Bananas are high in potassium, biotin, fiber, vitamins, and even copper. Bananas are also low in cholesterol and low in sodium.  Just be aware that bananas are higher in sugar and have a high glycemic index to them so you should only give small amounts to your Frenchie as a special treat.  You shouldn’t be feeding your French Bulldog bananas on a regular basis.

Are Bananas Good for French Bulldogs?

Yes, Bananas have a lot of great nutritional value to them.  They are high in potassium, vitamin C, and even vitamin B6. I talked to my Veterinarian who takes great care of my French Bulldog and she said that they are a great healthy alternative to regular dog treats (especially the fatty and salty ones).

Bananas are also a great source of fiber which can be helpful if your Frenchie is experiencing any gastrointestinal issues. Bananas are also very high in magnesium which supports bone growth and helps your Frenchie create proteins and even absorb vitamins.

However, like with any human food, you should only feed your French Bulldog bananas in small amounts and infrequently.  Moderation is key so while it is ok for your Frenchie to eat banana you shouldn’t give them this treat very often.

Can French Bulldogs Eat Banana Peels?

I would recommend you don’t feed the banana peel to your dog or leave it on the ground outside where they could get at it.  Banana peels are not necessarily toxic to your French Bulldog.  The banana peel would be very difficult for your French Bulldog to digest and might even lead to an intestinal blockage.

How To Give Your French Bulldog Banana

There is no big trick to how to feed banana to your French Bulldog.  Here are a handful of ways I have fed bananas to my Frenchie in the past:

  1. Slice the banana and give them a slice as a dog treat
  2. Stuff some banana into a Kong and then freeze it.  After it is frozen, take it out of the freezer and give it to your Frenchie.
  3. You can also freeze the entire banana and once frozen cut off small slices to feed to your Frenchie as a treat
