We use Fleischsaftgarung to prepare our dry food Puppy Chicken. Fleischsaftgarung is a method of preparing fresh meat. It was developed in the kitchen and not in the feed industry. The method is based on techniques often used by culinary chefs to make meat tastier and healthier by using meat juices. Fleischsaftgarung is a carefully selected combination of these cooking techniques, adapted to the physical needs and interests of dogs.
Fleischsaftgarung is a process in which fresh meat is cooked in its own nutrient-rich meat juice, just like in the kitchen. Our dry food Puppy Chicken is produced when the fresh meat is cooked at a low temperature over a long period of time and the meat juice is constantly concentrated using a cooking technique known as reduction.
Due to Fleischsaftgarung, our dry food is:
- particularly nutritious
- a treat for your dog
- soft but chewy because of the meat juices
- highly digestible
- does not swell in dog's stomach (no bloating)
- contain less carbohydrates
Fleischsaftgarung makes dog food equivalent to high-quality human food. We therefore do not call food cooked with Fleischsaftgarung ‘dog food’. After all, a best friend does not receive feed.
We have our dog food tested regularly and independently by one of the most renowned test centres in Germany, the ELAB Analytik GmbH (formerly TÜV SÜD ELAB).

Our experience reports
Uno is a playful and lively fox terrier. Food isn’t just about nutrition for him, he loves his treats. We have already used PLATINUM dry dog food in the dog school to reward him for obeying commands or to motivate him for new tricks. He also loves it when we put them into his food ball, and he has to roll it to release little bits.
We add some of the small juicy portion cups to each order. These are served on special days as “feasts”. Yes, Uno is a little spoiled.
PLATINUM helps with that: we regularly receive our parcel delivered automatically to our home. Always first-class service and quality. And if we postpone our subscription for a few days, the service team is always friendly and helpful. Thank you, PLATINUM!

After we bought Kira from her previous owners at the age of about 7 months, we switched to PLATINUM wet and dry dog food, as we had already fed our previous dog with it. The dry dog food Kira was fed by her previous owner made her thirsty, and she also smelled. We have been very satisfied customers for many years, because your food is of very high quality, is enjoyed and well tolerated. Kira loves having the dry dog food as a reward. At lunchtime she gets a portion of wet food, which is always eagerly awaited. We can recommend PLATINUM with a clear conscience, as we consider it to be the best food brand. Our previous dog reached the age of 16 and we are convinced that PLATINUM contributed to this great age. A big THANK YOU - keep up the good work!

Dear team, we have two Newfoundland who are now five years old. One of them had been getting smaller and smaller open spots under his coat since we bought him, the doctor said it was an allergy to something. We tried the more expensive anti-allergenic food without cereals, gluten etc. However, the ingredients made us suspicious, especially because they didn't stop the allergy. The other dog has had significant problems with his joints from an early age.
After I read an interesting book about the nutrition of wolves, I completely changed my mind. Both now get PLATINUM dry dog food Iberico + Greens in the morning and raw beef, turkey and chicken in the evening.
This combination is excellent! No more allergies for half a year. Joints are no longer an issue either. We also add herbal joint supplements to the food.
And when we travel and can't get hold of fresh meat, we combine the great Iberico + Greens and the practical wet food. Thank you, PLATINUM! We will remain loyal!

My 1.5-year-old French Bulldog Cuba has been fed PLATINUM Iberico+Greens dry dog food for about four months. We had previously tried dry foods from other manufacturers, but we always had problems with tolerance or taste. Someone recommended PLATINUM to us and now we are loyal customers! The food smells pleasant, doesn’t swell and is easily digestible for Cuba. The fact that he runs like crazy to his food bowl every morning shows how tasty he thinks his food is.
We have also been using PLATINUM's Click-Bits and Fit-Sticks as motivation for dog sports for a while now. We have only had good experiences with these products too!
We highly recommend PLATINUM!

Luke has had stomach problems since he was a puppy. Even changing over to well-known food types has not helped. I heard about PLATINUM from a friend, but I was very sceptical initially. As with all recommendations, I did some thorough research first, but I was quickly convinced by the many positive customer reviews and the excellent composition of the food. Ordering and delivery were both very quick. I immediately switched Luke to PLATINUM and after 4 days he was feeling better than ever.
No more stomach problems
and he was much better in general. I definitely won’t change again, and my next dog will also get PLATINUM.

When to switch from puppy food to adult food depends among other things on the expected size and breed of your dog.
Small breeds (such as Dachshunds and Pugs) can get the puppy food until the age of 12 months. Medium-sized dogs (such as Australian Shepherd and Border Collie) are usually switched after they have completed the change of their theets (approx. after 6 months) and large breeds (such as Bernese Mountain Dogs, Rhodesian Ridgebacks) can already be fed at the age of 4 months with our adult food.
If you would like an individual advice for your dog, please contact our customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org or on our free service number: 0800 3 64 36 63
Important: If you switch to an adult variety earlier, we recommend to use the feeding recommendation for the puppy food up to the age of 12 months in order to ensure a sufficient supply of nutrients with optimal -not maximum growth rates.
If you want to offer your dog a little variety, you can easily switch
between all types of PLATINUM food. It does not matter whether you give
wet food in the morning and dry food in the evening or vice versa. A
combination of wet and dry food in one meal is also possible, as both
forms of feeding have the same digestibility with PLATINUM.
Every dog is originally descended from wolves, the digestive tract is designed for meat. Our kibbles are designed in such a way that they can be absorbed easily by any breed from the Chihuahua to the Great Dane and they satisfy the needs of all breeds equally.
Compared to conventional dry food, which is mainly made from meat meal, the slow-cook meat juice method requires at least 70% fresh meat in order to prepare PLATINUM dry food. The difference between meat meal and fresh meat is very huge. In order to obtain meat meal from fresh meat, the fresh meat has to be heated strongly and exposed to high heat for a long time, often also to high pressure. This removes the nutrient-rich meat juice from the fresh meat in addition to the flavor carrier fat. Meat meal therefore is significantly lower in nutrients than fresh meat. We know from cooking that meat juice and fat make the roast a pleasure in the first place, which is why we do not prepare the Sunday roast with meat meal. Thanks to the slow-cook meat juice method, the PLATINUM dry food does not contain any locks or flavors, no coloring or odorous substances and no flavor enhancers.
We recommend an immediate change in dog food without a transition phase. Due to the different digestibility, it is not recomendable to mix PLATINUM dry food with any other dry food.
No, you can rely on the fact that no animal experiments are done for the product development and production of our food and care products - neither by us, nor by any other third party.
To avoid causing problems in the puppy learning to produce the important substances contained in the extract on its own, they should not be supplied in the food in the first 3 months.
The dry dog food is durable for 18 month after production, the wet dog food MENU is durable for 36 month and MENU Mini for 24 months after production.
