I am glad to have this vet close to my home, they are awesome! friendly people who has the focus in your pet. I needed to travel outside and I have been supported in few hours, they allowed me to travel successfully, my dog got his EU passport to travel safely. I highly recommend this vet.

My dog loves Adam the Vet and the nurses are all very kind. Would recommend the practice and am very happy with the service they have given to me and my dog.

I respect of everything to do with our pets our local goddards is but expensive but today was outrageous. I went to the vets for cat flea spray advice. She recommended that I spray the house with R.I.P fleas extra.She said it was expensive and it turned out to be £32. When I got home I saw it £14 on the internet and then I received an email from Waitrose pets.com to say they were selling it for £9. I expect to pay a little more than the internet but £9 to £32 is outrageous. This is a disgrace. There are lots of old ladies (including my mother-in-law) that uses this surgery and would payout for this. It is sheer exploitation.

Vet Response

Many thanks for drawing to our attention the pricing error with this product and I would like to apologise for any inconvenience. On-line companies have no overheads to speak of so are able to sell products like this for much the same as we buy them for nor do they provide professional advice on the appropriate and effective use of the product. Similarly supermarkets can sell them as 'loss leaders' to attract you to their store. However, the price that you have been quoted is an error which has now been corrected. It is not actually a product that is widely sold within the Group.

Both of our cats became seriously ill last Autumn and we in the course of treatment we had to make daily visits to Adam and his team for a month or more. Their service was exemplary throughout and everyone was extremely caring and sympathetic throughout. Recommended!

I�ve been using Goddards in South Woodford for the last 12 years and this is an exemplary practice with professional and caring staff. It�s lovely to be able to deal with the same friendly people when I call or visit and I�m happy to leave my cats in their care, always trusting their judgement and advice. Compassionate and respectful to the owners as much as the animals, I have no hesitation in recommending them. Certainly the best veterinary practice I�ve used over the last 27 years.

Brought my kitten in to be neutered the other week, and the care and help was brilliant. They insisted i come back the week after for a check up and then again the week after. Lovely staff, and made me feel very happy and comfortable to leave my kitten in their care. Would highly recommended this friendly vets, very happy! And one happy Kitten :)
