The Vet Peter and all the staff at the Dagenham Practic really understand how important our pets are and show it very much in each phone call made to the vet or visit. It does not matter how minor the enquiry is they will spend time with you to help in any way. So many times over the last 20 years I have phoned the surgery or visited and each time I have been fully satisfied with the care that has been given. They are now looking after my two cocker spaniels Alvin and Spanner, and not forgetting Toby my Westie who they cared for right from a puppy into his old age of 15 years. Thank you all at the surgery I would not go anywhere else xxx

“Fabulous staff”

I have written a review before but feel I have to follow that up. This occasion I had to take my cat Fyodor to see Peter. Peter, as always, was calm and kindly reassuring throughout all the tests Fyo had to have and was always ready and willing to answer my endless questions. Fyo had lymphoma and, despite all the best efforts of everyone involved in his treatment, he, sadly, failed to respond to that treatment. We are very sad to have lost him and miss him so much but we are so grateful to Peter and his fabulous staff for all the care and attention and effort put into Fyo's care and for the kindness and reassurance and empathy shown to us. Special thanks to Peter himself for remaining patient and positive through the consultations and tearful phone conversations with me..bless you, and also to Diane for her advice and support and her thoughtful text message on Fyo's last day. Thank you so much.

“Overall experience ”

From the experience that I received at a very sad time, all concerned went way beyond my expectations from
My previous experience at a different vet. We were fitted in with an appointment at very short notice so my dog did not have to suffer for longer. The vet and staff treated my dog and myself with the upmost dignity and respect

I would recommend this practice to anyone, for the care and respect that I received, And still receive today with my current dogs

The vet- Peter, and staff at the Dagenham branch really understand how important your pets are to you and how they are members of your family. Nothing is ever to much trouble, and i'm so reassured whenever I phone up, even for the most minor enquiry. They were even available to talk when I had to have one of my dogs put to sleep which certainly helped with the grieving process. I have been going to the Dagenham branch for over 20 years and I would recommend them to anyone.

“Excellent ”

I had to take my elderly dog Molly to visit the vets for the first time in years and, although I live in Romford, I used to take my cats to see Patrick at Plaistow branch because I liked, trusted and respected him very much. I didn't think it was going to be easy to find someone to equal his 'bedside' manner and thought long and hard about who to take Molly to. It had to be somewhere fairly close to me as Molly is a very poor traveller and gets very anxious on a car journey. In the end we decided on the Dagenham branch as the journey was a relatively easy one and I had been told that the Vet was very good. I am so glad we made that decision because Peter (the Vet) was very easy to talk to and so reassuring and understanding. He gave Molly a thorough check up and was very kind to her and methodical and unhurried about the whole procedure. This relaxed me and, in turn, gradually relaxed Molly. As it turned out, my worse fears were unfounded and Peter was able to explain fully what he suspected was wrong and start Molly on a course of treatment to alleviate her pain and discomfort with a follow up appointment for a few days later to check on her progress. Of course, there may be the need for more tests in the future and possibly adjustments to her medication but I have absolutely no doubt that she will be well cared for by Peter and his fabulous staff and I have great confidence in them. There is an air of calm and comfort in this branch, and I can only think of one other branch where I have felt that...the aforementioned Plaistow. Dear Patrick Eaves left a gap I don't think anyone can ever fill but Peter comes very close in my opinion. Thank you to everyone at Dagenham from me and from Molly.

I have been visiting Goddards at Dagenham for over 20 years now, and I can honestly say they are the best. The care and compassion they give is amazing, even down to sending a sympathy card when my dog passed away. The staff are amazing, sometimes I ring with the silliest questions, but they do not judge, they always have an answer. I hope to use them for the next 20 years too !

“"The Best"”

I have been using this branch of Goddard's for the past 17years and would highly recommend them to friends and I have already introduced family.

The staff are extremely polite,friendly,caring and always helpful. There has been very sad times with my animals over the years when they have become ill but have always had the support from all the staff which has made it much easier

Peter has only been the vet for the last year, he is professional caring and very good with my cats I would not go anywhere else he takes the time to explain everything so that you know exactly what to do and what is happening with your animal.
He is so patient with my cats (who are not always easy to deal with) and tries really hard to calm them, so this makes him No1 in books.

“The best vet's you could possibly have for your pets.”

We can't thank Peter and all the staff enough at Goddards in Oxlow Lane for the best care, treatment, understanding and information on two very serious situations just recently , unfortunately our cat had to be put to sleep and Peter was so proffesonal , caring and explained everything to us which we really appreciated, our Dog had to have major surgery so we took her to the Wanstead practice and again they were fantastic, we cannot praise both Oxlw Lane and Wanstead highly enough.Thank you so much.

“very helpful”

My cockatiel was very ill I took her to see the vet and even though they dont specialise in what is classed as exoctic birds they were very helpful and put her on a course of antibiotics which cleared her infection up within a few days. I have nothing but praise for them for the help they gave me and follow up information if it was needed.

thank you very much

“Fantastic Vets!”

This is by far the best vets I have ever used. We have had many pets over the last ten years and always used Goddards in Oxlow Lane.

All the staff past and present have been great with my animals and very caring and when one of my dogs had cancer they treated him quickly and helped me to look after him in his last few months , by being supportive and knowledgable.Also when he did pass away they behaved as if they had lost a pet of their own as they were so caring.

I would never use another vets in Dagenham , I cant recommend them highly enough!

They are the best!

“Would 100% Recommend”

If you are looking for a vet in this area we would highly recommend this branch. The care that is given goes beyond the call of duty we feel. The nurses and vets are very kind, considerate , have a wonderful approach to our dog and us as owners. Our dog can be a little naughty in the vets but this does not change their caring professional nature towards him. They give great advise and always seem to know indiviual pets and treat them so nice rather than just the next patient to visit. Even if you live outside the area this branch is worth traveling too. In the past I have felt in some vets people work there not for the love of animals but Goddards are a different ball game completly with their passion for animals and their health and welfare.

“Fantastic Staff”

Have been taking my pets to this Practicce for the past 12-15 years. Have seens Vets come and go but the friendly service has never changed. When Karen left the Practice last year (I had been taking my pets to see her for the last 10 years) I was aprehensive about who would be taking over. No worries, Peter Roberts the new Vet is marvellous, takes time to explain everything to you and my cats love him!!! The support staff are also fantastic.
