Russell and Julia are just lovely with our dog, he can be nervous but they are reassuring, friendly, knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions we have. We would not go anywhere else.

We have trusted our much loved pets to the team at Goddards in Addiscombe for many years and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

I took all three of my cats to Goddard (formerly Ashton)for all the years of their lives. They got into several scrapes and one even became quite famous as she once presented with a heart rate of 200bpm! Sadly my cats are no longer with me but all lived long and happy lives and received the best care from the team both through their lives at the end. I hope to get another feline friend in the future, will I register them with Goddard Vets? Yes, I most definitely will. Thank you to all of you for all your care.

Our dog had an eye problem that initially appeared to just be an infection, it developed in to an eye ulcer and the vets and the nurses were fantastic, they had a wonderful caring manner with my dog, were open about costs prior to any of the procedures and were honest about the different options and success rates. With all the follow up appointments following surgery, the costs were really reasonable, we have re-located so can't use Goddards anymore but I would highly recommend them to anyone, and our new vet practice just isn't as good! Maybe my expectations are now too high - little things such as talking to my dog before me at the start of an appointment really suggests they cared about the animal.

This surgery is open at very convenient hours catering for people that work. I have never had a problem getting an appointment when required and all of the staff are good.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this practice and all the lovely nurses and vets who work there. I was lucky enough to be recommended this practice (Ashtons as it was then) when I acquired my first cat and 19 years later, one more cat and a recently acquired dog, our relationship with this practice is still going strong. These vets are not in it for the money they are genuinely interested in the welfare of our pets and the best possible care for them. That's not to say they don't have to make money but the care comes first. When I moved house 3 years ago the lady who bought our place had a dog and I recommended our vets to her as they were new to the area, I subsequently found out they went to another vet group. Their loss as far as I'm concerned - not saying there is anything wrong with where they went just that you will be hard pressed to find vets which are so good at what they do at Goddards. I do have to say I had some reservations about whether the practice would change once it joined Goddards but my fears have been unfounded and I remain a loyal and very happy customer. Thanks for all you do for us and our animals. :-)

I have taken my animals here for 19 years. The vets and nurses are professional and clinically skilled and go above and beyond to provide medical treatment and continuity of care. They are always happy to take the time to to discuss and explain treatment options and offer friendly advice and support to owners. What really makes this surgery the best is the genuine care and affection for the animals. They are all treated and known as individuals, with everything being done for their welfare, health and happiness. They are fantastic people, who make an outstanding team.
