The skin is the largest eliminatory organ in the body, which is why skin and coat problems are often the first indicators of poor health and care. Yet, almost every pet suffers from some sort of skin condition. Many may simply claim that “it is only an itch and only a scratch”, but if left unattended, this ailment can exacerbate into other inflammatory disorders like renal complications, arthritis and cancer.

The key to sorting out your dogs and cats allergies, skin disorders, joint inflammation, arthritis, bladder disorders and many of the dread diseases, is to balance their pH Levels.

Just like with humans, our dogs (less so with cats) require a diet of 60% alkaline forming foods and 40% acid forming foods.

If too many acidic foods are consumed and not enough alkaline, the acidity inflames the organs. Acidosis is mainly as a result of a poor eating plan and diet, which leads to inflammation.

Vondis Holistic Pet Nutrition does not only comply with veterinary science but also human nutritional science.

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 3, 2014
The results of a landmark study conducted by animal science researchers in California show that feeding a group of dogs a freshly prepared, whole food, lightly cooked, nutritionally balanced diet made from real food is scientifically shown to increase white blood cells and blood proteins that could benefit immune health. The results support what human nutritionists have been advising for decades – stay clear of heavily processed foods, and eat wholesome, balanced meals that are prepared fresh from the highest quality ingredients available, are lightly cooked, and have no preservatives.

Supplementing your diet with natural remedies and supplements can be extremely beneficial. There are some amazing supplements that are anti-inflammatory.

CBD has taken the world by storm and is no short of being miraculous. According to a 2016 report published in the Journal of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (JAHVMA), 58.8% of dog owners are currently
using CBD products on their dog. Over three-quarters of those products were prescribed by a veterinarian.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive extract from Cannabis or Hemp. It is distinct from THC, which produces the “high” effect of marijuana. The product of choice should be laboratory tested and should be GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certified. In fact, each batch produced should come with a Certificate of Analysis. Check out Vondis CBD oils and biscuits.

Omega 3 fish oil helps maintain healthy cell membranes, thus enhancing the flow of nutrients into and toxins out of the cell and also has strong anti-inflammatory properties designed to improve the health of your pet’s skin and coat. Fish oil is preferred to omega 3’s derived from flax. Check out Vondis Om3 Fish oils.

Omega 3 restores inflamed and damaged cells whilst Rooibos elevates the itch and discomfort. There are so many legendary health properties to Rooibos Tea that it has taken the world by storm. Rooibos is proudly South African and right on our doorstep and because it’s packed with many antioxidants and minerals, Rooibos (“red bush”) tea is extremely healthy.

It promotes healthier skin, mainly because of its high concentration of Zinc and Vitamin D. Thus, when we treat our companion’s skin and allergy problems, Rooibos is one of my preferred remedies. Used internally or externally, you are sure to see an improvement with your pet’s skin and coat.

Apple cider vinegar is a remedy with multiple uses for dogs: alleviating allergies, arthritis, establishing correct pH balance. If your dog has itchy skin, the beginnings of a hot spot, incessantly licks its feet, has smelly ears, or is picky about his food, the application of Apple Cider Vinegar may just sort out these ailments.

Let’s hear from a few pet owners:

Just thought I’d let you know that I’ve just seen a very happy client. I saw him at the end of April. His Labrador had to wear bandages almost permanently for lick granulomas and had frequent hotspots. He admits he felt like giving up. He has been feeding your Special Chicken and using the Rooibos Anti-itch since the beginning of May. There is only 1 slightly raw spot left, no bandages and hardly any scratching. Dr. Alma Kerr (vet)

My poor Champ has struggled with arthritis from as early as 4 years old. To this day (he is 11) he still will do anything to play with his ball. We tried every and any medicine that might help and eventually got him onto CBD. To this date it is the only thing that sufficiently helped him enough to a point where he can “semi-pain free” play with his ball again!! Katerina Bogiages

This is the kind of story that if anybody is still not convinced that the holistic pet food nutritional way for your pets is not the answer, then nothing else is……I have rescued many animals and there are two common denominators. One being, that somebody, somewhere has abandoned the animal and all the animals in my care eat Vondis. The speed with which my rescued babies heal is just mind blowing. I’m talking about animals with demodectic mange, sarcoptic mange, ticks and flea/lice infestations. I have attached some photos to explain myself further and as you will see, the rest is self-explanatory. I just wanted to thank you and Paul for all your assistance in helping me to help them!! ..Kind regards Nicole

I have put my dog Leo on your Vondi’s food for itchy skins and within three weeks I’ve noticed a difference. He had a bald patch on his chest and the hair has almost all grown back – best decision I’ve ever made for my furbaby! Lanadene

Thanks Vondi’s for your awesome products. Since putting my Yorkie on your food about 2 months ago I can see so many changes. Her coat is shinier, she doesn’t itch as much and she has stopped licking her paws. Gillian

My Rottweiler was really suffering badly from flatulence (he sleeps in my bedroom which made my life quite difficult) and his coat smelt very badly. He also had a runny stomach quite a lot. I had tried every kind of food – only the best dry food brands. Mary-Anne

Big shoutout to Vondi’s Pet CBD oil. After using it for 2 weeks, no more itching. First time in 13 years that Oscar is itch free! Rouve Hattingh

Please contact if you are struggling with that itch!
