Its hard to believe that just 6 months ago my Big Boy was so riddled with premature arthritis and possible hip dysplasia due to a very unfortunate start to life that he could barely walk...But the body WILL heal itself and with LOTS of LOVE and PERSEVERANCE, an impeccable DIET (thank you Vondis KZN) and daily EXERCISE he's simply... MAGNIFICENT! #veryproudpittymom #magnusmybigboy
Why Buy From Us
Vondi’s Holistic Pet Nutrition is a registered nutritional pet food that is natural, wholesome and free of preservatives.
In an industry that is dominated by large multi-nationals with massive advertising budgets, our stance on correct natural feeding, using REAL meat, REAL veggies, olive oil and FRESHLY picked herbs, has found much popularity, and it is economically priced.
Vondi’s is actively involved in educating the public on the nutritional rights and demands of our cats and dogs, and we have had major success in curing the many common ailments and sickness that we find nowadays. We are proudly South African, completely transparent and aspire to a code of good business ethics, which includes supporting animal welfare organisations and animal rights campaigns.
Latest Veterinary Studies
The latest veterinary studies coming out of The States, California, June 2014, confirm what we and nutritionists have been advocating for many years, that the same nutritional science that applies to humans apply to our cats and dogs.
Our pertinent and unique points of distinction:
- - Whilst the jargon words like “optimal, balanced, complete, scientific” are embedded in our brand, we also highlight the importance of “safety first, quality of ingredients and morality”
- - We STRICTLY refrain from any animal testing.
- - As all raw meats can carry harmful bacteria, it is important to cook all meat properly to kill the bacteria that can cause food poisoning. The optimal temperature to kill all harmful contamination is 72 °C.
- - We do our best to buy only natural ingredients and we use absolutely no preservatives or digestives.
- - We ensure that the meat that we use comes from a reputable source. Most of the variants of meat that we use are free range.
- - We use only high-quality pulses like a long grain brown rice, pearl barley, split peas and all are GMO FREE
- - We use only a cold pressed olive oil from South Africa as a high quality omega rather than rendered fats that the industry is known to use.
- - We cook our own stock from scratch using bones and vegetables rather than getting quick results from synthetic preserved digestives.
- - We certainly do not use any harmful preservatives – rather we freezer our food, naturally and safely
- - To reduce our carbon footprint and enhance nutritional values, we cook our food using the old fashion “Wonderbags”.

Testimonials From Happy Clients
Having our dogfood delivered promptly each month by the friendliest staff ever is absolutely amazing!! Our doggies love your food and sit and drool every single day when we feed them, they just can't get enough. Our Rhodesian Ridgeback's skin condition has also disappeared. Well done on having professional, friendly and knowledgeable staff and for the excellent service we receive month on month!!
Since he was a puppy my Doberman really farted a lot. A friend then suggested Vondi’s. HE HAS NOT MADE ONE BAD SMELL SINCE THE FIRST PACKET! I cannot believe it, neither can anyone else that knows him. Vondi’s is truly the best pet food out there. His diarrhea has also stopped. There is actually a form now. His coat has improved and I know that he is much happier.
I am a Vondi's dog - my name is Major and my favourite Vondi's meal is Ostrich�� I have a beautiful soft and shiny coat as a result of this delicious food - thank you
I must add my success story. I have a labrador that suffered with the exact symptoms. Not so bad that he was in bandages but we had him at the vet with terrible hot spots, scratching and an irritated skin. It always seemed to flare up. I felt the root of the problem was not resolved. I did some research and decided to try the above mentioned product in conjunction with the Vondi's Fish oil. I then later tried the chicken meal as an introduction. In 2 months Bailey is spot free. I can highly recommend these products. It honestly works. My labrador's skin is spot free l, his coat is glossy and shiny!
I think it is certainly the best pet food in the whole world. Wish they were closer to us in Villiersdorp..We are nursing 7 babies and their mum. Found in the bush in the dark. Vondi~s Holistic Pet Nutrition would certainly help this little bundle of joy.
Just need to say that the Buchu Moisturizing oil is working wonders for our Jack Russell that has a skin infection on her tummy. It’s the first product that I can say works for her. Not even the vet cream had such great and instant results. Thanks for making owner and my “child” happy.
Hi Paul, thanks again for excellent service. I want to give another testimonial about your products: the Buchu Moisturising Anti-inflammatory oil works for mange!! I do rescue work for Pro-life Pet Rescue in Sabie and had 2 severe mange puppies that I rescued from a dumping site. Where their hair fell out I rubbed the moisturising oil in every day and after 2 weeks all the hair has grown back and their skins look excellent.
Hi there! We would just like to thank the Vondis team for such amazing products! Our monthly pick up from CK Quality Pets is always on time and we are always greeted with the most welcoming smiles ❤️ Thank you team Vondis! Paws Up!
“Max my retriever thinks he has the best parents cos we feed them Vondis. I would also like to compliment your staff - so friendly happy and just a breath of fresh air!”\
