Our Puppy Chicken dry food has been prepared with FSG (Fleischsaftgarung). FSG is a method of preparing fresh meat. It comes from the kitchen rather than the feed industry. It was modelled on techniques that top chefs often use to prepare meat, in a tastier and also healthier way.
With FSG (Fleischsaftgarung), fresh meat is cooked in a vacuum at low temperature, using only its own meat juices. After a long cooking time, during which the moisture of the meat juice is slowly reduced, this dry food is created.
The dry food Puppy Chicken prepared with FSG (Fleischsaftgarung) is primarily cooked meat which means following for your dog:
- extra tasty,
- as nutritious as BARF,
- excellent for building muscle,
- quickly digestible,
- effectively absorbed and
- chewable-soft due to the meat juice.
Our dry food also reduces the risk of gastric torsion because it does not swell in the stomach.

Our experience reports
We have used PLATINUM dry dog food since 2007. All our dogs have enjoyed it without having to add anything. We now have our fourth dog eating this food. He comes from Greece and when we first got him, he had very bad fur and brittle claws. After about four weeks, people were telling us that he had a very beautiful and shiny coat. The dry dog food smells great, and I like its soft consistency compared to other dry foods. In between meals, he gets wet food as a reward when in training. We are very happy with this dog food.

We would also like to share our experience with PLATINUM food. After a long search for an easily digestible food for our very sensitive male Labrador, we came across PLATINUM after recommendations from friends and acquaintances, and as recommended, we made the change immediately without mixing PLATINUM with the old food. Against all expectations our little fur-nose tolerated the change really well. No more vomiting after eating and no more diarrhoea. And that’s on top of how well he accepted it. We mainly feed him PLATINUM dry dog food (Iberico+Greens), but in the evening, he also gets the wet food in the practical TetraPak. He particularly enjoys the PLATINUM Snacks, which we use for training. They work for walking at heel almost by themselves. All-round high praise for the good quality and your great service! We will stay with you!

Wally came to us when he was nine weeks old. For the first four weeks, he was fed the food he received from the breeder. However, we were not satisfied, and our little darling didn't like it at all and in the end, he did not want to touch it. We spent several days researching high-quality dry food brands, and finally we settled on Puppy Chicken from PLATINUM. As soon as we opened the bag, we were impressed by the consistency and smell of the food. Wally felt the same way, because he was bouncing up and down and could hardly wait to try it. He absolutely loves it. He almost inhaled the food, which was very unlike him. After just a week, we began to notice changes. Before, he would have very soft faeces 8-10 times a day. Since eating PLATINUM, this has gone down to 2-3 times and they’re solid. He is also much more agile, and his coat has become incredibly soft and shiny. We are often asked about his food. Since he still likes it at nearly six months, we use it as a treat in training. He is still crazy about it. So, we are 100% PLATINUM converts. Thank you for making such a great dry food. There’s nothing better than seeing our dog so happy.

Before I discovered PLATINUM dog food, I had tried numerous kinds of dog food, but my dog didn’t tolerate any of them. It is only since she started eating PLATINUM dog food that her digestive problems have disappeared. Whether it’s wet or dry, and whatever the flavour,
Nala loves it all,
especially the snacks ;)

We tried a few kinds of food for Shadow, but they all gave him diarrhoea - until we tried yours. Since then, he hasn’t had any more digestion problems. He gets dry dog food in the morning and wet food in the evening. In addition, the body metabolises most of the food so only a little is excreted. It is also very digestible as it does not swell like other foods. It also smells very pleasant, so much so that my three-year-old nephew wanted to try it. We are very satisfied with it and highly recommend it, so we are very happy that we can order it again and again without any problems.

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.
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.
