All Natural, Single Ingredient Collagen

Approximately one-third of the canine body is made of collagen, a protein that our pets naturally produce throughout their life. Collagen provides structure, support and strength in the skin, muscles, bones, gut lining and connective tissues. While production of collagen is the highest for puppies, as dogs age, collagen production slows down. This often results in common health obstacles our pets face including allergies, hair loss, digestive issues, and aches and pains from the hips and swelling of joints.

Step Above Pet Protein is an all-natural supplement produced from collagen rich pork skin. Supplementing collagen in our pet’s diet helps to increase the amount of collagen available to renew and repair damaged cells. This not only prevents common ailments but provides significant improvements for those dogs already showing symptoms.

Our specially formulated collagen for dogs is easy to use, and dogs love the taste. Just sprinkle over wet or dry food once or twice daily. Veterinarian recommended, doggy approved.

Our Story

Dedicated To Helping Your Dog Lead the Best Life With Our 100% Natural Collagen Proteins.

After launching Step Above Proteins in 2011, we recognized that the marketplace was full of pet products with claims to support ailments such as hip and joint pain, allergies, and digestion; however, many of these products had 10-20 ingredients in them, and showed little signs of success. Our theory was that just like in humans, there was a strong possibility that supplementing a collagen specifically formulated for pets in their diet could have the same positive impact we see on our health.

Our team recruited Alex Rothacker, a world-renowned canine expert featured on David Letterman, Jay Leno, and the pet channel with over 40 years of experience in canine health and wellness to help us evaluate the effectiveness of collagen on our furry friends. We worked tirelessly to identify the right source of high-quality collagen and put it to the test. After our trials, we found just one simple source of collagen, that when supplemented into the diet daily, provided not only preventative healthcare benefits, but diagnostic support in the aging and injured.

Today, our rich collagen protein is used across the country as part of a daily regimen that results in improvements of thousands of dogs’ lives. The products success has led to veterinary and breeder testimonials, and is used by thousands of sporting, law enforcement, and enlightened pet owners who want the best for their pet.

What role does collagen play in a dog's body?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, and that holds true whether you are a human, canine, equine, feline, and so forth. Think of collagen as the glue holding the contents of the body together. About one-third of the protein in your dog’s body is collagen.

As your dog's body ages, collagen productions slows down. That is also when most arthritic issues start to surface, and skin and coat quality may decline. It can help combat and delay many of the signs of aging.

what our customers say

I'm a Labrador Retriever breeder for almost 20 years. All of my dogs and puppies (from conception) are on Step Above Proteins. We use it as a preventive for health issues. How did we find out about this product? We co-owned a dog with another breeder. This poor dog tore her ACL 80%. My Vet wanted us to do surgery ASAP. This would had been a very long recovery and painful too. Nuts and bolts for full repair. Cost of around $6,000.00 to $8,000.00 just for the surgery and another $1,500.00

I wish I could give this company 6 stars!

Bree Moore

A little pricey but worth every penny. My edges came back in 6 weeks.

Beverly Scott

"Surprised by the results. Works extremely well. My 8-year-old beagle went from frequently yelping and locking up from joint pain to prancing around like he's 5 again. It took about 2 months of steady feeding for him to get these results. I have started my other two younger dogs on it as well.
