This is an update of my previous review. It was time to say goodbye to our little man Alf. We had changed to Goddards in Walthamstow some time ago, it was a much longer journey, but I was much happier with the vet there. I was speaking to them about arrangements for Alf and they told me that there is a different vet there now who was lovely. So we took Alf back there which is much nearer. The vet is in fact a lovely lady who had previously seen Alf in Walthamstow. She is marvellous. Kind concerned, explained everything, just a caring person. She gave him some squirty stuff that smelt like cheeses on a big spoon which he was very happy with. He was licking it up while she was seeing to him and then........... he just stopped. Alf had a very peacefull passing I could not ask for more.

We've used Goddard Vets/Highbury for more than 10 years, for our 2 cats...a Maine Coon and a Calico British female. They've helped us through hyperthyroidism, providing invaluable advice and care, with the most advanced medications. Lauren, the veterinary nurse, goes out of her way to help with advice at odd hours, including how to get the best value for money given that we are pensioners on limited incomes. I can't recommend them highly enough.

I have been coming with my pets to Goddards at Highbury for many years; in fact so long that I cannot remember how long exactly and they have changed vets in that time. The regular Practice vet Louise is wonderful and I have found her to be consistently patient and caring with my beloved pet cats,- previously one who had a collapsed larynx and diabetes; and also the Head Nurse Lauren is the most phenomenal person who I have dealt with in terms of clinical experience and knowledge, alongside straightforward compassion and care of my furry friends. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others and am grateful for all their input.

Louise Riches and her team have been caring for our cat for all her life, more than 17 years, and recently helped her to her end. There have been many challenges, starting from the first month's of the cat's life. Throughout, this practice has supported, advised and cared for our pet with superb professionalism, excellent understanding and advice. The team, led by Louise, includes a senior cat specialist and vet nurses who all have the attributes of high quality animal carers. And that includes the regular locums as well. The standard never drops. Sometimes our cat presented unusual and challenging symptoms and conditions; Louise understood and addressed them appropriately. We have complete confidence in the capability and expertise at this practice but over and above that, we would recommend this practice as one where you can be confident that there will also be sympathy and tenderness to the end. A very special place.

Dear Goddard Veterinary Group, I didn't realise but it has been 1.5 years since I registered with you, time flies by. Thanks for this opportunity to give my feedback about your services. As well as organising general care for my cat Cici also they performed brilliant surgery in addition to three telephone calls and follow up consultations - just fantastic. The way you work in harmony made me very positive and grateful to you. I am very sad, in despair that we lost her sister cat Mistan (1.5 years ago) because of the lack of communication between the staff at a previous veterinary practice. They caused clinical negligence and we had to put her to sleep because she developed many stress related illnesses.This was caused by a neighbour's two street fighting cats that she brought from abroad that caused her death. They constantly attacked her, Cici and all the other cats in the area.I have many unsolved social issues, this is one of them. I write poems almost all the time. I would like to share two quotations about how my cat reflected into my poems.I am against cremation but my cat Mistan ( I call her Misi) after being put down was cremated: 'She burned, I burned. Became a handful of ash Blew to the sky, to the air. It rained, got wet'. It was the 14th of August 2015. After her death it rained a lot. I shed tears for months and kept writing more I remember talking to the Sa maritans and crying more: 'My cat, my baby She was sacrificed by clinical negligence And a part of my soul went'. As well as great care for Cici I also received lots of different useful information from your staff. I wish you all the best. Kind regards, Sukran.

My Chow recently underwent emergency surgery that was compounded by 3 other local vets who failed him as regards competence (at an inordinate expense too).. In the midst of this ordeal, I discovered Louise Riches at the Highbury branch of Goddard's and her kind, vocational, honest, thorough, expert approach once again restored my faith in the London veterinary community.
