Love this place! From the early days when they advised me about spaying my then puppy. Through the operation itself and the aftercare. Then the subsequent two and a half years where they have been happy to answer even the silliest questions to put my mind at rest. Plus my nutty cockapoo Esther actually gets excited about visiting the vets as they are all so good with her. Can't recommend them enough.

I chose Goddards in Barking initially because it is close to where I live. I am so glad I did as I have been there twice now and the care and attention shown by the two staff members I met, Samara & Jacqueline, has been amazing. Samara wasn't even put off when our grumpy puss growled and hissed on her first visit. They were both brilliant with our cat and we are very grateful. Thank you Goddards for a great experience!

My rabbits are seen by Dominique who is always so gentle and takes her time to be thorough with their treatment. It's difficult to find a rabbit savvy vet, I would highly recommend. Team of nurses are always sympathetic and kind. Not forgetting Tilly the cat, who is always there to welcome you.

Awesome customer service, great communication, great with animals, friendly to clients, nothing is too much trouble and they let me ask as many questions as I liked and I didn't feel rushed. What a great veterinary practice.

As a newcomer to Barking, I was worried about finding the right vet for my two cats. I need not have worried as Goddards are professional, synpathetic and clearly like animals. They gave me plenty of time to ask questions and get advice about helping my cats get used to their new city surroundings after living previously in a large garden with fields around. Parking is easy too -- on the road outside with a council coin-operated ticket machine. Its on a main bus route as well (Longbridge Road goes past Barking Park) so all points covered. Thanks Goddards!

My dear cat Fyodor has been very ill with lymphoma and has been treated at another Goddards branch. Despite best efforts from the excellent vet there and ourselves (and Fyo) he very sadly failed to respond to treatment and became incontinent and was losing weight rapidly and I made the heartbreaking decision to let him go. Regretfully, my own vet was on a course and I didn't want to see a locum we didn't know, though I do not for one second doubt their ability, and that is where the wonderful Karen Edwards at Barking branch came to our rescue yet again. She helped us under similar circumstances last year with our dog and we knew she possessed the correct balance of kindness, empathy and professionalism. How grateful we are to her. She was so very kind and reassuring to Fyo and to us and made a very distressing and difficult time just that little bit less so. She talked us through what would happen in a calm and reassuring manner and confirmed to us that we were doing the right and kindest thing for Fyo whilst at the same time acknowledging our grief and how hard it was for me, in particular, to let him go. She was respectful towards Fyo at all stages of the procedure, which was mercifully quick and painless. You have a little gem in this vet..don't let her go. Thank you Karen.

I recently gave my 7yr old a kitten named Arthur. I knew nothing about cats and asked lots of questions at the Goddards surgery. The staff are always cheerful, friendly and gave me lots of advice. My son enjoys bringing his kitten to the surgery and looking at the tropical fish on display. I was impressed with everything to do with the Goddard Barking Essex surgery. Thank you for your help.
