Original Study Update – Dia-Treaties for Diabetic Dogs

Original Study Update  – Vintek Nutrition, LLC

Dia-Treaties® for Diabetic Dogs

 March, 2009 – A study on Type I (insulin-dependent), poorly regulated, diabetic dogs was coordinated by Vintek Nutrition, LLC and conducted by several veterinarians across the United States.  The study was based on a new patent pending product for diabetic dogs called Dia-Treaties®.  The study results indicated that the use of Dia-Treaties® enabled the dog owners to use less insulin ranging from (15-67%) while greatly enhancing the overall health of their dog.  Owners also reported a dramatic increase in their dog’s energy level and enhanced skin and coat conditions along with the other issues associated with diabetic complications.  A common response from the owners was:  “We have our old dogs back!”  (see testimonials on website)

As of August 16th, 2013, Dia-Treaties® have consistently shown over a long period of time (4 years) that it enhances the utilization of insulin and increases its efficiency.  Insulin types tested: (Vetsulin® (pulled from the market in 2010-11 returned 4/2013), Humulin-N®, Novolin-N®).

This article is designed to point out that a number of the original study dogs taking Dia-Treaties® along with their (decreased amount of) insulin shots are still going strong as of August 2013, which is a true testament to Dia-Treaties® effectiveness.  All the dogs mentioned below were struggling with insulin alone.  Today, they are currently on less insulin, regulated, and doing considerably better than they were many years ago (3.6 to 4.5 years ago (range of sample dogs)).   Please see a sample of the Vintek dog stories below:

Does your dog have skin and coat issues? Try Sterling Coat…

Does your dog have skin and coat issues?

Our product, Sterling Coat™ Treats  by Vintek Nutrition – have helped many of the toughest and perplexing dog skin and coat cases known to veterinarians. Sterling Coat™ works to heal your pet from the inside-out. The dogs that have endured multiple office visits,  injections, special shampoos, and special diets – all without success, are finding relief from Sterling Coat™ Treats after 30 to 60 days of continued use. Our client’s pets generally notice increased energy levels within 3-5 days. A healthy coat is the telltale sign of a healthy dog.

One of our clients is a physician and is American Board Certified in the specialty areas of: Dermatology, Dermatopathology and Pathology. His 14 year old, English Setter had a large “hot spot” on his hind quarter that was missing fur. He used Sterling Coat™ Treats for 60 days and…


November, 2011 : To Whom It May Concern: “We have an English Setter that is over 14 years old. Late last spring he developed problems with eating, arthritis, and a large “hot spot” with hair loss on his back. Our concern for him led us to Sterling Coat Treats. We gave him the chews as prescribed. Within a short time his appetite was back to normal. His arthritis greatly improved – he prances on walks now. The hair on his back has completely grown back. The dog we have this fall doesn’t look or act like the dog we had last spring. Sterling Coat Treats have improved the quality of life for our dog. We highly recommend them.”

Sincerely, DKP, M.D. (American Board Certified: Dermatology, Pathology & Dermatopathology)

When he thought his dog was cured, he stopped using them for a short period of time, only to find out that the hair started falling out again. We are happy to say that they are now permanent users of Sterling Coat™ Treats by Vintek Nutrition. Available exclusively at:

It was derived from a 3 year, multiple veterinarian clinical observational study on another product made by Vintek Nutrition call Dia-Treaties®.
