I have a 26 year old Western pleasure gelding who is still in amazing shape. I have owned him for 17 years. He has never been abused or pushed, but he has however developed arthritis in his left hock. I injected him for the first time last year with amazing results. After two weeks lameness was gone and he was much more comfortable. I don't think this should be a first resort for anyone, but it has made my boys life much more enjoyable and comfortable in his golden years. He was able to return to the show pen and is still being lighty shown by my 9 year old daughter.

In the world of bodybuilding where DNP is most commonly found a dosing of 600mg per day is not uncommon and such a dose can be taken safely; however, while we cannot recommend you ever use DNP to begin with, if you do we would prefer a lower dose of approximately 400mg per day . Remember, it does not take a lot to see any fat burning, no, it doesn’t take much at all and if you get greedy and try to speed the fat loss up you won’t; all you’ll do is severely damage your body. Most will also find 2-3 weeks of use to be the maximal time frame of use; that may not sound like much but when you think about what that short time frame can do it’s mind-blowing. As DNP can burn a full pound of body-fat per day one could easily drop 20lbs of pure fat in that time frame, not 20lbs of bodyweight but 20lbs of pure fat and that is absolutely amazing. For the first time user 300-400mg per day for a 2 week course is the only reasonable course of action and if another 2 week course is needed it is recommended at least 4-5 weeks of no DNP be put in place in-between the two 2 week runs.
