Numerous breeders have been raising their dogs on PLATINUM products for years now. We are always happy to read about the positive feedback and experiences that our breeders have with PLATINUM.
We would naturally like to share these experiences with you and therefore, publish them under the heading of feedback.
We look forward to any pictures and stories you may have.
Feedback from breeder Ramona Krause, LABRADORZUCHT VOM LIMBERG:
After having tried several types of feed for our pets, we are very happy to have found PLATINUM Adult Chicken.
It smells like meat and it should therefore taste like meat! It is the high proportion of fresh meat and quality ingredients, such as green-lipped mussel extract, that convinced us to use this feed and we will continue feeding it to our dogs.
It satisfies our dogs’ hunger very well, which is not so easy with Labrador Retrievers! We even use it in our daily work as a simple treat. All seven dogs and our puppies have shiny, soft fur and digest the dry feed very well, so not much comes back out again ;-) Even the change of coat, which used to be a problem for one of our female dogs, goes off without a hitch now. Its 18% residual moisture makes it a rather juicy dry food that even our finicky Boxer female dog polishes off like a Labbie.
WE ARE DELIGHTED!
Warm greetings from Ramona Krause & our little rascals from Limberg!

Breeder feedback from W. Wilke
I fed my bitch PLATINUM Iberico+Greens during gestation.
She has always done well on and had no digestion problems with this product. Two weeks before she gave birth I switched her to puppy feed.
Taskia gave birth to eleven healthy puppies on February 2, 2014. Four weeks later, I fed them for the first time. To do so, I crumbled the puppy feed and mixed it with wet feed. The puppies gobbled down the feed like there was no tomorrow.
I also offered them water with goat's milk at the beginning: 2/3 water and 1/3 goat’s milk.
Starting on the fifth week, I gradually reduced the wet feed and from the seventh week on only fed them the Puppy Chicken.
All eleven puppies are growing very consistently and the whole litter looks uniform. It was the first litter I raised on PLATINUM and I am very happy, so I do not plan on making any changes for my next litter.
Many thanks also to your breeder consultants, who gave me very competent advice.
Feedback from breeder Bianka Schneider, Crazy Gremlin's Löwchenzucht:
I have been breeding Lowchen for 17 years and have tried several types of „branded feed“ over the years. About 5 years ago, I tried Platinum and have stayed with it ever since. This feed is very easy to digest, and my dogs still find it just as delicious today as they did on the first day.
My puppy breeding:
Lowchen puppies get their milk teeth relatively late, so they can’t eat Platinum Puppy Chicken at the beginning. While the feed is quite soft, it is still very difficult to soak. My puppies get fresh meat in the form of tatar and Platinum wet feed from the 4th week after birth. At about 6 to 7 weeks, I start feeding them Platinum Puppy Chicken dry feed, which I cut into smaller pieces. From the 10th week, there is no need to cut the feed into smaller pieces.
Its digestibility is very very good! Since I have started feeding Platinum and fresh meat, I no longer get any problems with diarrhoea and eating of faeces.
My dogs have a great shiny coat and are very healthy and happy.
My dogs also find the treats in the form of sticks and the neat little Click-Bits to be very tasty.
After so many years, I can heartily recommend this feed to any dog owner.
It also offers excellent value for money.
Keep it up!
Warm greetings from Bianka Schneider

Breeder feedback from P. Eichstädt
I have been breeding Boston Terriers since 2004. We are a small breeding kennel with 1 to 2 litters per year. I decided for the first time ever to put Platinum Menu on the feed plan for this year’s litter, born in March 2014.
I have been feeding Platinum’s dry feed to the puppies for about 5 years now with success. The puppies are offered solid feed starting on day 23 as usual to relieve their mother. I start with cooked chicken heart, which I blend together with the resulting liquid. This mixture is still very fluid, and the little Boston Terriers love lapping it up. After about two days, once all the puppies are eating with a good appetite, I first added Platinum Menu Chicken into the chicken heart mix to see if this wet food would be well received and digested by them all. This being the case, I soon gave them pure Menu Chicken, though still mixed with broth.
They digested it very well. The faeces were firm and there were less compared with the wet feed I have fed from other producers. Then, once the puppies had teeth, I started feeding them Platinum’s semi-moist feed (Puppy Chicken). I also fed them Menu Fish+Chicken and Turkey+Salmon alternately. Everything was supplemented with low-fat curd and cottage cheese. They were also still occasionally given chopped up chicken hearts.
The puppies developed quite well. They were not as chubby this time, but very lively, cheerful and very well-muscled. It also seemed to me that they were developing ahead of their actual age. I am going to use Platinum Menu and dry feed again for my next litter, especially since I have been feeding my adult dogs Platinum products for many years already.
