Banana Coconut Dog Treat Recipe

PetGuide logo

It’s not just coconut oil that’s good for dogs – coconut meat packs a healthy punch, too! Shredded coconut is an excellent source of fiber, which helps dogs with digestive issues. And with that in mind, I gave this Banana Coconut Dog Treat Recipe a go. They are easy to make and turned out beautifully! I hope your dog enjoys them as much as Oscar does.
