Question of the Day: Are banana peppers bad for dogs?
Quick Answer: Banana peppers are not ideal for a dog’s diet, and you should avoid feeding them warmer varieties completely. While dogs may tolerate banana peppers in small amounts, you should remember their tongue and digestive system have not evolved to handle spicy foods. Even if a banana pepper isn’t hot to you, it can contain enough capsaicin to burn a dog’s tongue and terribly upset their stomachs.
