    Yes, bananas are fine, but not everyday as they are high in sugar. I usually give my guys a 1/2 banana each as a snack or a treat once or twice a week.

    Fruits and Veggies are great as treats! Grapes, raisins, onions and the core and seeds of apples are all poisonous to dogs, but anything else is great! A lot of people here give frozen green beans as treats. My senior bully will literally eat anything so I always give her some blueberries or some of my banana when I have one and I always give her cucumber slices, celery, and tomatoes when I am making a salad! My frenchie is a bit pickier but she will eat tomatoes, bananas and apples.... my male bully only eats apples, he hates veggies and any other fruit lol!

    Yeah there is actually a good list of poisonous foods for dogs on this site , I'll see if I can find it and copy and paste it for you.

    Foods and Household Items that are dangerous for dogs.....
    I wanted to start a topic of things that are in most homes that can cause a severe danger to your pets.




    Chocolate: Chocolate contains theobromine, a chemical stimulant that, together with caffeine and theophylline, belongs to the group of methylxanthine alkaloids. Dogs are unable to metabolize theobromine effectively. If they eat chocolate, the theobromine can remain in their bloodstreams for up to 20 hours, and these animals may experience fast heart rate, hallucinations, severe diarrhea, epileptic seizures, heart attacks, internal bleeding, and eventually death.


    Grapes and Raisins: Grapes and raisins can cause acute renal failure in dogs. The exact mechanism is not known, nor any means to determine the susceptibility of an individual dog. While as little as one raisin can be fatal to a susceptible ten pound dog, many other dogs have eaten as much as a pound of grapes or raisins at a time without ill effects. The dog usually vomits a few hours after consumption and begins showing signs of renal failure three to five days later.


    Onions & Garlic: Onions and to a significantly lesser extent garlic contain thiosulfate which causes hemolytic anemia in dogs (and cats). Thiosulfate levels are not affected by cooking or processing. Small puppies have died of hemolytic anemia after being fed baby food containing onion powder. Occasional exposure to small amounts is usually not a problem, but continuous exposure to even small amounts can be a serious threat.


    Macadamia Nuts: Macadamia nuts can cause stiffness, tremors, hyperthermia, and abdominal pain. The exact mechanism is not known. Most dogs recover with supportive care when the source of exposure is removed.


    Beer: Hops, the plant used to make common beer, can cause malignant hyperthermia in dogs, usually with fatal results. Certain breeds, such as Greyhounds, seem particularly sensitive to hop toxicity, but hops should be kept away from all dogs. Even small amounts of hops can trigger a potentially deadly reaction, even if the hops are "spent" after use in brewing.


    Antifreeze: Antifreeze, due to its sweet taste, poses an extreme danger of poisoning to a dog (or cat) that either drinks from a spill or licks it off its fur. The antifreeze itself is not toxic, but is metabolized in the liver to a compound which causes kidney failure, and eventual seizures, and death. By the time symptoms are observed, the kidneys are usually too damaged for the dog to survive so acting quickly is important.


    Avacados: LEAVES, STEM, PIT & BARK of tree contain Persin. The meat (fruit) part is safe, and found in foods like Avoderm and are wonderful for the dogs coat.


    Apples & Apricots: The fruit is safe, the leaves and seeds are not


    Human Vitamins: Most human vitamins contain large amounts of Iron, which is not good for our furry friends. Only give your pet vitamins made for dogs


    Sources: Dog Obedience Training .com , ASPCA




    If anyone else knows of unsafe foods, products, ect in your home, please add to the list!

    Vegas gets a half a banana twice a week for his bedtime snack. I alternate between many fruits or veggies for his snacks. He loves apple, watermelon, cantaloupe, blueberries etc.

    Ours love banana, except Buddy, he will spit it out. I don't think he likes the texture. They each get a few blueberries every morning when Bev makes her shacks.
