Pet owners throughout the world have become more and more knowledgeable regarding the topic of dog food. We all want the best for our four-legged friends, and want them to live long, healthy, and energetic lives. As a result, dog food companies are doing their best to provide our pets with this scenario, as we see the quality of dog food becoming a major emphasis within these companies. A relatively new brand that has hit the market is called Humankind. What is Humankind food? In this article, I will research and give you some specific insights regarding this product.


Humankind … What’s It All About?


dog in the grassHumankind was created by a company known as Veterinary Prime, Inc. It is designed as an option to the the hundreds of ‘traditional’ dog foods on the market with its primary focus on providing our canines with a long, healthy and energetic life. Humankind is specifically interested in bringing awareness to dog owners, with a belief that the ingredients contained within dog food, should meet the same requirements (safety, quality) of those for human consumption.

This thought process has a great deal to with the lack of regulations that the FDA requires with dog food companies. These companies are not required to disclose the quality of the ‘meat’ source, meaning that we are never really sure if the source of protein (meat) is a healthy one. Meat from sick, diseased animals may be exactly what your pet is eating, and Humankind has a mission to change this. With that said, let’s take a look at the ingredients within the Humankind recipes.




Ingredients … What It Has And What It Doesn’t


  1. Grain-free
  2. 99.8% protein coming from natural, whole food ingredients (Dehydrated Chicken)
  3. Potato and sweet potatocarrots
  4. Carrots
  5. Apple
  6. Flaxseed

Though all not inclusive, you can see the nutritional ingredients contained within this recipe. Humankind is on a mission to develop a recipe that although intended for dogs, the very same recipe would be suitable for human consumption as well. The label on their foods say just as much, which reads 100% Human Quality.

dog with questionsLet’s now take a look at what Humankind does not contain:

  •  1. By-products
  •  2. Articial preservatives
  •  3. Meals
  •  4. Fillers



So Good, You Could Eat It …   Seriously! 


The above mentioned ingredients serve no nutritional value to our dogs, and Humankind has taken the proper steps to eliminate these from our dog’s diet. Good for them and our dogs!

This product seems to be one that possesses all the healthy and nutritional characteristics that will enable our pooches to live a long and healthy life. Dog Food Advisor has given Humankind a five star rating which is quite the complement. The product is appropriate in all life cycles of your dog, and has been designed to meet the nutritional needs in the following activity levels:

  1. Active
  2. Highly Active
  3. Less Active


I have posted a video below so you can see the process in which Humankind is processed and the great detail that is involved in providing a quality product.

  1. Hello Luke,

    Great article on Humankind Dog Food! I’ve always wondered what was in our traditional can of dog food. I know I should read the ingredient label haha! I like the idea of creating dog food that meets the same requirement as human food.

    I used to have a chihuahua, but now a owner of 2 cats. I wonder if someone will implement the same concept for cat food. Maybe it has already been done, if you know. I would love more information about that.


    • Thanks Eric! I have always been a dog person myself so I am not entirely sure about cat nutrition. With all of the pet food companies competing for your dollar, I would assume there is or may be a cat recipe out there to meet similar nutritional value. Thank you for stopping by and the best to your two cats!
