I was at my wits end with the declining health of my senior terrier. After seeing Dr. Tarrant, my dog is much better and continuing to improve on the treatment regimen recommended by Dr. Tarrant. During our visit, I was reassured and calmed by the doctor's knowledge and expertise. I will continue to bring my pets to Dr. Tarrant and highly recommend his clinic if you love your pets!

Did you ever wonder if Chinese Medicine really works? I can tell you from experience that it does! Macgyver was a 3 year old black lab when he first saw Dr. Mike Tarrant. He had been having trouble with his ears for over two years at that point. They would get sore and inflamed intermittently and we would take him back to his vet over and over again. The last time this happened his ears were so red and actually had blisters in them. In addition, his Inflammatory Bowel Disease had flaired up again and he was experiencing a lot of diarrhea. With that came a lack of energy, so much so that he didn’t want to play anymore. I couldn’t bear to see him suffer so much so I began to look for another vet for him. I found a site for Dr. Mike on the internet describing his practice and I knew that I had to try something new for Macky. To make a long story short, Dr. Mike examined him, listened to his story patiently, and proposed a course of treatment for him which included Chinese herbs. I am open-minded so I didn’t have a problem with his plan, and I am so happy for this. Macky is now a healthy 5 year old with great energy, a healthy digestive system, and his ear problems are under control. Whenever anything comes up, Dr. Mike has a new plan for him, and so far it has always worked. I might also add that he is now off of Prednisone and Sulfasalazine, which he had been taking for the first 3 years of his life for his Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I would recommend Arbor Creek and Dr. Tarrant for anybody who wants the best care for their pets. Dr. Mike and the entire staff are top-notch in every way. They are caring and professional and you know that you are in the best hands when you are there. I am so grateful for the wonderful care that they have given to my best friend.

My dog, Cody, has been sick since last year with vaccine reactions and has been under the care of Blue Pearl off and on. On a regular basis, he is under the care of Dr. Michael Tarrant. I thank God every day for finding Dr. Mike. He has brought Cody and myself through some tough times. He puts you at ease, never hurries, always explains everything, asks if you have questions and even if you worry too much he does not tell you so. They love your pet as much as you do and show it every time you go. His staff is very friendly and you look forward to going back - no hospital odors are present - everything is clean and you feel more like you are at home. We started seeing Dr. Mike in February of this year and Cody is almost well - this was something he could have died from and without the best care he probably would have. He is the love of my life and I was not ready to let go at 11 years of togetherness. I hope for at least 11 more as he completes my life and makes everything else in life seem trivial. I trust Dr. Mike with the care of my baby and that is why I would drive from Tonganoxie to Olathe every day if I needed to. Thank you all so much. Submitted May 14th, 2012

"I've been taking my dogs to AC Animal Hospital for approx 2 years. Our pug got sick last November and Dr. Tarrant & Natasha went above and beyond to help him, unfortunately he was terminal but he had the best care possible. Our new puppy has had some health problems and I know she's in the best hands with Dr. Tarrant.... The most unique part of his service that I really appreciate is that he takes his time with you during your appointments. There is no double booking and being rushed in and out. You will quickly learn that Dr. Tarrant and Natasha really love animals, they treat them with such love and compassion, it makes you very comfortable to know they in the care of skilled and caring people when they are sick.

I am writing this letter to highly recommend Arbor Creek Animal Clinic to anyone who loves their dogs. I was referred to this clinic by a dear friend, Trisha N, who works with the Boxer Rescue. My husband and I have 3 Boxers and we were ready to make a Vet change. For the last almost 3 years, Dr. Mike and his great staff have been there for the Three Amigos. The first time I came in with the guys to interview the new Vet, I was greeted by one of the staff at the door to help me. This was never done before and I was very excited to get help. The youngest was just 8 week old and Dr. Mike has taken care of him through his troubled puppy stages. No matter what this guy would get into, the staff was always there to help me out of the mess. The Three Amigos tend to get into trouble from time to time. The middle Amigo is going to be 6 this year and is also a hand full. I call him my ADHD kid….but the staff always are able to handle him with grace, as they clipped his nails and gave his shots. The old man Amigo, is going to be 12 this year and needs senior care. Dr. Mike is very gentle with this old guy and has used both regular and holistic medicine. Dr. Mike gave acupuncture to help the arthritis and it did help. The old dogs need extra care and special considerations because they are loved as part of the family. All in all, I feel welcomed and my dogs respected every time I visit Arbor Creek…. Natasha, Dr. Mikes' beautiful wife and partner, has so much compassion for all the animals they treat. My guys love her and they know a good person right away. When you have a Dr. who practices both main stream and holistic Vet care it is great. The continuing education classes and conferences they attend brings 21st century medicine to our friends So hey…..what are you waiting for…..get those fur kids in the car and visit ARBOR CREEK ANIMAL HOSPITAL. --Meet you in prayer

Teresa and I have been taking our beagle Snoopy to Arbor Creek Animal Hospital for over 4 years. Mike and Natasha love animals of all kinds and have a great passion to care for them big and small. Snoopy loves to be treated by Dr. Tarrant and always has a good experience. When our Daughter Briana got her first dog Roxy a Rat Terrier Chihuahua we did not hesitate to tell her about Arbor Creek Animal Hospital. Roxy loves to see Mike and Natasha and the rest of the gang and receives great care. I recommend Dr. Tarrant for his experience, care and someone who will go the extra mile for our four legged friends. Thanks Mike and Natasha!

I'd heartily recommend Arbor Creek Animal Hospital! I have a mature dog with multiple health problems. I had sought help from our regular vet with no benefit. Natasha and Mike made such a difference in her health. I was really ready to "say good-by" to her, but with their help and medication, we were able to increase her quality of life and make her feel so much better.

For several years I had sought a veterinarian that I felt cared. For me it is not only for the medical treatment of my dogs, but also for my comfort as their "parent." Those of us who are animal lovers know what I am talking about, and those who have "babies" with health issues or special needs, really know what I am talking about. Dr. Mike Tarrant and his staff at Arbor Creek Animal Hospital have been exactly what I was seeking, they are knowledgeable, personable and just a great group of people. They have been serving our veterinarian needs now for 5 years and I look forward to many more! Bad Things Bakery
