The Backstory on Only Natural Pet: When Marty Grosjean, founder of Only Natural Pet, rescued his dog Crinkles in 2002 at age 5, she was dealing with a host of health problems. Unfortunately, it seemed like every conventional solution led to another problem. That’s when it clicked for Marty, who was inspired to create Only Natural Pet – and the difference was night and day. Crinkles not only thrived, she lived to be 18 years old and inspired Only Natural Pet team to share the healthy benefits of a natural life with dogs and cats everywhere.
