Dogs just love bananas, they are high in potassium, vitamins and fibre and low in cholesterol and sodium. In the summer we slice them up and pop them in the freezer where one or two pieces a day make great entertainment to keep them quiet for a while.

One banana favourite for Arthur & Flo is banana bread. This recipe is simple to make giving you approx 12 slices. It also keeps for 3-4 days in an airtight container. You can serve one slice a day for medium to large dogs and half a slice for small dogs.
