Dia-Treaties® from Vintek Nutrition

Vintek Nutrition have come up with a treatment for diabetic dogs which, although not a cure and dogs continue to need regular insulin injections, actually increases the utilisation of insulin and so decreases the amount of insulin required (by between 15% and 67%). The treatment also stabilizes blood sugar levels, and prevents “roller coaster” blood sugar readings.

Dia-Treaties® Diabetic Dog Treatment

“Dia-Treaties® for your diabetic dog.  This all-natural, patent pending, veterinarian tested (4+ years) formula when used in conjunction with insulin, makes taking care of your diabetic dog much easier.”

See Vintek Nutrition’s website for further information.

Note: Please consult your vet before giving your dog Dia-Treaties®. Introducing alternative medication and treatment should always be done under veterinary supervision.
