Shih Tzus Can Enjoy Bananas as a Small Treat
You can let your shih tzu eat bananas as an occasional treat as long as they are only given a small amount per serving. The occasional banana could be beneficial for your shih tzu’s health because bananas are rich in nutrients like potassium and vitamin B6.
The reason you shouldn’t let your shih tzu eat too many pieces of banana is due to the digestive fibre and sugar content. Excessive amounts of fibre and sugar could cause problems in the shih tzu’s stomach.
The banana skin is also considered non-toxic but you should keep the peels away from small breed dogs like shih tzus. It could cause blockage in the dog’s gastrointestinal tract if the pieces are too big.
