We use FSG (Fleischsaftgarung) to prepare our dry food Puppy Chicken. FSG 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. FSG is a carefully selected combination of these cooking techniques, adapted to the physical needs and interests of dogs.
FSG (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 FSG (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
FSG (Fleischsaftgarung) makes dog food equivalent to high-quality human food. We therefore do not call food cooked with FSG ‘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
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.

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!

Fiona is a very active dog, but she’s also a bit of a princess. Not every food is good enough for her. With PLATINUM, we’ve finally found a food that she really likes to eat. She likes both the wet and dry variety.

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.

We always buy the Beef+Potato dry food, and we are very happy with it. Luna loves the food and throws herself at it.
Since we’ve been feeding her PLATINUM, she hasn’t had any anal gland problems.
It took a long time, but by trying different dog food samples, we found the right food.

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.
