When David and I adopted S’mores earlier this year, we did plenty of research on pugs and learned that they get overweight pretty easily and genetically have more health issues than other dogs. This didn’t stop us from welcoming the cute love bug into our family though! To maintain his health, we have been feeding him quality grain-free foods to ensure that he gets all the nutrients he needs. Recently, I was thrilled to discover Humankind, a brand dedicated to help pets live long and healthy lives. They have developed natural human quality food for dogs that is complete and balanced for all our pup friends out there!
First and foremost, I love that Humankind believes in only feeding dogs human-edible food. In other words, it’s basically quality of food that you would find at a grocery store and eat yourself. Humankind is rich in nutrients, fatty acids, a natural prebiotic to support high energy, and 99.8% of its protein comes from whole foods. It’s also minimally processed at low temperatures to retain natural nutrients.
We all know that getting our protein from fresh chicken is always preferred over protein from processed meat. Traditionally manufactured pet foods are often processed with artificial preservatives, fillers, and by-products. I feel safe feeding Humankind to S’mores because it is a clean label. They don’t use 4D meat from dead, dying, diseased, or disabled animals due to its 100% Human Quality approval! All ingredients and production processes comply with the highest FDA regulations for Human Edible food set by the US government.
If I had to make a comparison, I would say that Humankind is sort of like stew for humans. Not only is the consistency similar, it also has a variety of ingredients like carrots and meat to make a complete meal! Prepping lunch and dinner for S’mores is very easy because all I have to do is add some water to the mix. He seems to love the taste of it — just like how I enjoy my homemade stews.
Humankind comes in 2 sizes: 5 lb. ($59.99) and 10 lb. ($99) bags. The 5 lb. bag makes 18 lbs. of food after it’s rehydrated, and the 10 lb. bag makes 37 lbs of food. For the quality you get, it’s totally worth it! Living in a small town, finding quality food for S’mores can be a challenge. Luckily, it is very convenient to purchase Humankind online. They even deliver it to the door so I don’t have to worry about lugging up a heavy bag of dog food up the stairs!
Ever since incorporating Humankind into S’mores’ diet, he has been a very happy, healthy, and active pup! While he is on the girthy side, he definitely loves to run, play fetch, and go on fun adventures with his mommy and daddy.
My dog pawrent friends, have you tried Humankind yet?
