What People are Saying


Boone is a 6 year old German Shepherd who had crippling hip dysplasia. After a total hip replacement, a typical 6 month recovery period was drastically shortened to 3 months. He has returned to normal activity and his x-rays reveal strong bone growth around his implant. We firmly believe the success of this speedy recovery is due to being in good shape and taking the gelatin supplement for support of strong bones and connective tissue.

Sweet Pea

Alex trains trick and show dogs. Alex's dog, Swee’ Pea, was an aggressive dog that was 3 days away from being put down when Alex saved her from a pound. Swee’Pea holds 9 Guinness World Records and has been seen on shows such as David Letterman, The Tonight Show, Oprah, Regis and Kelly, Martha Stewart and Ripley's Believe it or Not to name just a few. She is almost 20 years old now, and Alex attributes her longevity to the exercise and nutrition routine he’s created for her. Swee'Pea has been taking Step Above Proteins gelatin supplements for over 18 years which has been key to maintaining the muscle she requires to stay healthy.


This is Sugar who is 16 years old. She could hardly walk and could no longer get on her favorite couch. She has been on the gelatin for 3 months and is now able to play outside for 15-20 minutes each day, and even managed to go in the car to the spring Leo picnic. Before she had to be carried out just to go potty. She is getting stronger and more playful every day.



"Hey! I wanted to let you know that we took Nola to the ortho surgeon at vet specialty for a second opinion and they did an MRI can’t find anything wrong with Nola. She thinks it might be a possible soft tissue injury or muscle injury. She still recommends to pull her from hunting training for the rest of the year. She says we’re doing the right thing with treadmill, swimming, rest. I’m so happy! Just wanted to update you. I think this product has been a major help in this incredible healing!"
