About Animonda Carny
Animonda (meaning “the world of animals”) began in 1991 with the vision of producing high quality pet food. The company has roots in the traditional butcher’s trade but it was inspired by nature. They wanted to develop dog and cat food that would make a difference. They wanted to help pet owners care for healthy cats and dogs, making sure they only got the very best food.
Today the company uses natural raw materials instead of artificial flavorings. They avoid using flavor enhancers. Their foods are species-appropriate and do not use artificial colors or added sugar or soy.
The company only sells their pet foods through specialist retailers. Their foods are now available in some 35 countries.
Animonda is part of the Heristo Group, a specialist in pet food and one of the major players in the area of meat processing and delicacies for human consumption in Europe.

My cat is very fussy she also has a sensitive stomach, she LOVES this food which I brought on chance as she’s not very keen on beef – by Amber reviewing Animonda Carny Adult on 16/10/18
I have 3 cats who are all fussy eaters,I bought this food for them and they absolutely love it so much they all lick their bowls clean – by Lotus Shephard reviewing Animonda Carny Adult on 01/12/18
I always bought a lot of Carny, various tastes, and my cat was very happy with, no problems at all. Now the tins come not tightened and I had to claim for. It happened 3 times. My cat had vomit after the first tin but only because I didn’t see immediately that the tin had lost the vacuum sealing. I hope that Zooplus will do something with the producer. – by Annarosa Ivaldi reviewing Animonda Carny Adult on 04/25/18
My two indoor cats love this food,but since they have been in this food my goodness they have the smelliest poops I have ever smelt! They are very normal poops so it’s not causing any digestive issues apart from the smell They have always been on a grain free diet and I have never had this problem before. I wonder if this for is too rich for them. It’s a shame as the cats always finish the food and if it wasn’t for the stink it would be a 5 star review! I guess its back to the old food which wasn’t so appetising for the cats. – by Molly Perrin reviewing Animonda Carny Adult on 12/06/15
