I needed expert help & advice after overdosing my dog on Sileo, at 2 a.m in the morning. The vet on duty (Tomas?) was excellent in his caring and professional manner. I cannot thank him enough.

Excellent practice - with very friendly reception staff and nurses who really care for my cats. Massive thanks to Kath Allan who takes care of my cats for years now and her knowledge, dedication, great communication and amazing personality are absolutely

Our cat Carla had a bad case of gastroenteritis last week (week commencing 17th July 17), requiring a stay at the Wanstead Veterinary Hospital. What impressed me most is the daily communication you gave on her progress, in particular I would praise / greatly recommend Dr Kath Allan whose updates not only were given when she said they would be given, but also were excellent. Speaking to Kath you very soon gained confidence in that the treatment being given to Carla would be very professional, which in turn reassured you that she would make a recovery. Fingers crossed as I write this does appear to be the case. Visiting Carla during her stay I also found to be well catered for /organised.

I cannot thank the hospital staff enough. Our elderly dog has had the very best of care, as have we. Dani has been brilliant and so has Helen the nurse. Emergency surgery in the middle of the night - Brilliant. Care, Respect and Professional Dedication. I only hope I can get the same level of care if I need it in a human hospital. Thank you.

We would like to thank Max for his unstinting care and consideration shown to Shotty our cocker, and also to us during this difficult last 9 months. He was always available to deal with our concerns, never failing to call or e mail in response to our questions. Max did considerable reading and research in his own time into this difficult condition and as a consequence was able to treat Shot dynamically to extend our time with our boy by some months. In short Max has been more than just a vet and we will be forever grateful for his skill and empathy.

Vet Response

Thank you so much for your kind words which we will pass on to Max. Shot was an absolute favourite of everyone’s here and we were so sad when you lost him. We are so pleased though that Max was able to help you through this

We are so grateful for the 5 star care and also the affection that Max and the team gave to my cat, Percie, at Goddard's Vet in Wanstead. After Percie started howling and acting strangely we brought her in knowing something was wrong but not sure what. Thanks to Max for acting so quickly and realising it was an intestinal issue, they operated soon after and removed the part of her intestines causing the problem. After the operation the team looked after Percie so well, giving her so much care and affection and letting us visit her after work. They kept us up to date when they said they would and explained everything clearly. Percie has recovered so well this week and is nearly ready to go back outside again. We're so grateful for everything the team has done, and cannot recommend you highly enough. Thank you! Jo and Pedro Smith (and Percie!)

The staff were incredibly friendly, even at 10:30pm! They did a stellar job with my hamster who, having been on the brink of death, is now completely healthy and happy again, plus they were amazing at writing down notes so that other vets would be able to access them, no matter which branch I visited.The hospital was immaculate, everything was dealt with very professionally yet in the friendliest manner, and I would definitely recommend to any pet owner in times of trouble!

This was only the second time I have been to Wanstead as I usually go to another branch of Goddards but after an initial hiccup with communication, which was speedily rectified, I have got nothing but praise for the Goddard Group, both Wanstead and my usual surgery. Everyone from the receptionists, the nurses and vets (locums and permanent members of staff) were all extremely professional, understanding and kind. A huge thank you to everyone, especially Louise W ,for their expertise resulting in successful operations and aftercare for my pets. Would highly recommend.

I have three cats. My eldest, Bill, was with them since I got him at 5 months old from a shelter. He was not in a good way as he had been beaten. I had him for an amazing 15 years. Two weeks ago he collapsed..I phoned Goddards and they saw him immidiately. They had him in an oxygen tank and truly did their best for him, whilst being so nice to us. We were heartbroken when we realised he would not recover.every member of staff knew.. and cared. I am so grateful. X
