We use Fleischsaftgarung to prepare our wet food Menu 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 wet food Menu Puppy Chicken is created using the short cooking technique. This cooking technique only works in the Tetra Recart® carton because this enables the core temperature of the fresh meat to be reached more quickly via the narrow sides than in a can.
Due to Fleischsaftgarung, Menu is:
- particularly nutritious
- a real treat for your dog
- highly digestible
- very yielding
- 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).

The changeover from conventional wet food to PLATINUM Menu can be made immediately without any transitional phase. If your dog has a very sensitive stomach, you can give it the PLATINUM Menu over a period of 1-2 days, introducing it slowly until the animal has fully changed over to it.

Our experience reports
Yoshi has been eating PLATINUM dry dog food since he was a puppy. He has always tolerated it very well. As Yoshi is a very active dog, he has not always eaten. For about a year now, we’ve also fed him wet food.
He loves this combination so much,
that he often jumps right onto his bowl.
Yoshi eats all the flavours, but I think his absolute favourite is chicken.

I’ve been using PLATINUM for over a year. My dog tolerates it well and he seems to enjoy it.
It’s always packed carefully and sometimes there’s even an extra treat :)
We have also made use of the telephone advice service - they take their time and provide personal advice.
We are totally satisfied!

My little Russian Toy Terrier, Lady, loves her PLATINUM food.
She tolerates it also very well
and doesn't have any dandruff, which is unfortunately often the case with other food.
I am very happy and will keep using 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.

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!

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.

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.
The switch from conventional wet food to PLATINUM Menu should be done immediately without a transition phase. If your dog has a very sensitive stomach, you can slowly add PLATINUM Menu over a period of 1-2 days until the changeover is completed.
