Sadly, we've recently moved away from the practice area but, if need be, I wouldn't hesitate to bring my cat or dog back for treatment. David Kidd is an amazing vet and the rest of the team are just as impressive. Our cat had to have a non malignant growth removed from his foot and it was done neatly and professionally with the minimum of distress to our boy. Very sadly he developed a blockage in his intestine some years later and had to be put down, but this was all done with the utmost sensitivity and only after long and informed discussion. Our dog actually brightened up as he got to the door of the surgery.....

I've been a client with Kydd and Kydd for several years. I trust them implicitly. Their service towards me and my dogs has always been fantastic. It's somewhere I don't always like taking my boys but the care and treatment has always been exceptional. I know if there is something wrong with one of them then especially David will get to the bottom of it. I also like the fact he's an orthopaedic surgeon so I really can get a full service without referrals. Leaving one of them there is never easy but the girls on reception and the nursing staff are delightful, they make it so much easier. I can't recommend them highly enough.

I have always been more than happy with Kydd & Kydd. All the vets and staff are delightful and my ragdolls Zilli and Fistik purr and purr when they visit. The 6 monthly free health check is something not many vets offer and prices remain good. Well done to the team
Vet ResponseThank you very much for your kind words. From all at Kydd and Kydd.

David Kydd and all his staff are amazing. They looked after our Staffie, Drummer so well. Drum needed cruciate ligament surgery which at 12 years old is a big op. The care drum received was second to none. David was brilliant answering all our questions and even dealing with our insurance company when they wanted us to see a different vet over 2 hours away which would have been a nightmare as Drum does not travel well. Drummer is doing so well now and its all thanks to Kydd and kydd.
Vet ResponseThank you for your kind words. From David and the team at Kydd and Kydd.

I first visited David Kydd's father at Kydd Veterinary Practice at the Tooting Practice in the 1960's! I have moved a few times since then but have always taken any of my sick or newly obtained pets to usually the practice at Wimbledon, we still travel to this practice even though we now live in Richmpnd. Throughout these years we have had an assortment of pets from birds, through to rabbits, tortoise, numerous cats and a dog - and we have always received the very best care and our animals have received exemplary care at all times. I have visited this practice for the best part of 50 years now and could not recommend it more highly.

I came to Kydd and Kydd after a very bad experience at another local vet practice, they are literally next door to my work and I have never met more professional and caring vets and nurses than at this practice. I have been in with my own two cats Savannah and Neelix regularly with concerns and for checkups, they will always accommodate you at the drop of a hat with a huge concern and never make you feel that you are worrying for nothing. From the moment you walk in the door the staff are all nothing but extremely welcoming and knowledgeable, the care they show for my animals is always of the highest profession and they will listen to my worries and questions no matter how small with always a good reassurance and advice on what to do. We also have an office dog Basil who has been in and out on numerous occasions with emergencies at the drop of a hat, they have taken him in and patched him up, the staff all know him by name and I think this really shows how much they care for the animals in the practice that they take the time to get to know them as well as you. I would recommend them to anyone that asks and I would never take my animals anywhere else now. Thankyou Kydd and Kydd team you really are the best around.

I took Molly to see David Kydd after she started to limp on her back leg. David knew at once what the problem was after watching her walk and checking her leg.... Cruciate Ligament ! After David had explained what Molly needed to have done we booked Molly in for her Operation. On the day of the operation David asked if we would give permission for him to do blood samples and X-rays to check everything else was in working order.... Glad we did but a bit shocked to find out Molly had a foreign body in her stomach. So the Cruciate Ligament operation was postponed. David gave Molly something to vomit the object back up but this did not work but after listening to David explain and listen to his advise to rebook Molly in but this time to have the foreign object removed - 2 weeks later David removed a £2 coin. After the big Operation on Molly stomach David advised us to wait a while before he done the Cruciate Ligament on her and explained that Molly leg would not get any worst by delaying the operation. Well I'm pleased to say Molly had her Operation last Thursday and every day she is improving. Molly has been back twice already to check that everything has gone to plan David and myself is very pleased with Molly's progress. I have been using Kydd & Kydd for over 45 years and if I moved away I would travel back to get David's advice on any pet which I own as I totally trust him, and would listen to any advice that David would offer..... All the staff at Kydd & Kydd are so friendly and very professional in everything they do you could not ask for better !
Vet ResponseThank you very much for your kinds words. All at Kydd and Kydd.

My wife and I rescued a Mastiff cross ( Isobel ) from the RSPCA back in 2013. Unfortunately Isobel had, had a very bad start to life and somewhere had been abused both physically and we think mentally. When we adopted Isobel we knew she suffered with her rear right leg but it wasn't until eighteen months later and approximately £5000 pounds lighter we found Kydd and Kydd who identified the exact problem and promptly put it right. This practice is one of only two professional animal care centers we visited ( 16 in total ) over the eighteen months where from the first telephone call my wife and I were put at ease and believed it was genuinely all about our dogs welfare. David Kydd was available 24 hours a day after Isobels major surgery which we can confirm having had to call and receive calls regarding her welfare and current condition. David performed an operation for cruciate and lateral ligament repair and using the most up to date technology ( 3D printing ) a TTA to repair and replace her knee joint. This practice is second to none, all the staff are caring, considerate look after the animals like they are family. Questions are answered in a way that is easy to understand and puts you at ease, at no time did we feel under pressure to leave because there was someone else waiting with a booked appointment. Two weeks ago I needed to call David to discuss a problem we had with Isobel that may or may not have been a recurrence of the original operation. This call was after three visits to our own vet who could not diagnose the problem Isobel had. One telephone call to discuss the original names of various pain relief Isobel had been prescribed after the operation found us with an emergency appointment early the next morning for a look at Izzy. After an examination, X-ray, blood tests and a couple of other general checks Izzy was back at home and 48 hours later with prescribed medication was back to her crazy self the dog we love. I'm not sure what awards there are but all of the staff here deserve some recognition for thier devotion to the cause of animal welfare. Thank you all so very much and a massive thank you to Davids wife who must be a Saint to put up with his total dedication. Thank you all
