“Re Toby”

We have always had our various Dogs treated here & over the years we have had an excellent level of care for each one, our late Westie Samson had an eye removed in Jan 2008 & lived until June 2013, he was very well dealt with & handled with sensitivity when having to be put down; our first Dog Holly a Border Collie was treated for Pancreatitis in the 1990's & her life was saved, she had another3 1/2 happy years;our current Lurcher Toby had anxiety issues when we got him in Feb 2012 but has now overcome this via medication, he now has mild Asthma but is well looked after by Julia & the team when he goes there & has completely lost his nervousness & is completely at ease when there.

“Excellent practice”

Took our dog here on an emergency when our usual vet was taken ill and it felt like we had been customers for years. The receptionist knew who we were and our dog's name when we walked in the door. The reception area is vey large and relaxed. The vet had an excellent 'bedside' manner with the dog and explained all our options to us very clearly in easy to understand language. We would thoroughly recommend this practice as would our dog who has got over his emergency and doing very well.

“Very understanding of my situation”

The nurses and the vets in this practice are lovely and have gone to great lengths to ensure that my cat was receiving the best possible attention. This was not an easy case, as this is a semi-feral cat who had never been to the vet. In previous opportunities, they have arranged home visits successfully, but on this time he needed to be there for a more comprehensive assessment. It turns out to be that my cat has FIV. I was informed of this over the phone and the approach was very gentle and understanding. On subsequent chats with the nurses and vets I was explained of the situation and provided with additional information, which is something I appreciated a lot. Thank you.

“Most accommodating vet i've ever been too”

I've had cats for well over 25 years and many vets during that time, and dont get me wrong all the vets have been fantastic but for some reason the team at the Green Lane location have that extra zest

I found them to be extremely accommodating, super friendly and a very convenient location to visit

I HIGHLY recommend you make this your go to place for your pets!

“Excellent Service”

I am a client at Goodmayes practice my cat - Misty was in so much pain through a cat bite on her tail that developed an abscess - Julia Roberts was extremely professional and her care and attention to Misty during her treatment was exceptional. She made Misty and myself at ease. Plus she has such a great personality it shines through.

I would definately recommend anyone to go to this practice.

“Greetings from a happy chappie !”

Hi to all my furry friends out there, I'm Archie the Jack Russell & I just want to say how much I love going to see my bestest Vet, Julia & all the gang here at Goodmayes.

I can be a bit of a tricky old timer, but no matter how I feel when I visit.....even when I was so poorly not so long back & found it difficult to muster the strength to tell my heart to tell my face to smile in the usual doggy fashion, I'm treated like a king, fussed over like nobodys business & restored back to full health.....& if I'm happy, my mum's happy !. xx

A final word from mum ! - This is a lovely, caring vet practice that you can have the confidence both your animal & you will be well looked after by caring, knowledgeable staff, x

“Customer Service is the best”

I have been taking my pets to this surgery for the last 30 years and the Vet that is at this practice at the moment is the best one yet. The Vet does not just expect the nursing staff to deal with explaining the ProActive Pets scheme, she went through it with us as well as the nursing staff, so that we understood how it worked. She also took a great deal of time explaining and advising how to feed and exercise one of my cats who is over weight. When we took our other cat to the surgery when it had been bitten resently the Vet did not try and give us the most expensive medication which was an injection she advised that there is a better and cheaper route which is a course of antibiotic capsules. The Nurses at this surgery have always given advise, and have been understanding and caring over the years.

“Excellent Care”

26.02.13

I bring my cat Abbey to this practise, so when my cousions friend of 84 years young found a stray cat with a bad foot, I offered to help her get him to a vet.
Your vet Julia and staff not only made him feel better, but showed him love and care for possible the first time in his life.

They didn't just help to turn Charlie's life around but also showed great emphathy and understanding to a very worried elderly lady.

“Jack's life savers”

We have been going to the Goodmayes practice for well over twenty years
and have seen most of the vet's who have practiced there. But now we have a new vet "Julia" who's as bubbly and frendly as Jan the head nurse
and her fellow nurses. Our cat Jack's now on his ninth life with a dodgy ticker, but thank's to Julia's expertise he's doing fine. We moved away from Ilford in 2008 and now travel in from Wickford and will continue to do so. A trusted and very freindly practice.

“At last we have a permanent vet - and she is fab!”

Last night we took our very large dog to Goodmayes surgery. He had a very bad ear infection. The new vet was very patient with him, he is nervous, gave his ear a wash, prescribed ear drops. Checked I his teeth and drained his annul glands. She dealt with all this wonderfully as he hid, pulled and whined. So glad we now have a permanent vet as hopefully he will get to know her and his visits will be less traumatic for him and us. Have been going to this vets for 30 years and would never go anywhere else.

“Lovely vet”

I brought my daughters cat Toby-twirl to have his claws trimmed. I have inherited him after my daughter moved.
The vet I saw was so lovely with Toby and really made him relax and
took time to quiten him down. ( he is usually very fiesty)

I was so happy with the care given by her and the nurse and Toby seemed quite calm.


Thank you so much on behalf of Toby who enjoyed his manicure and pedicure

The vet herself was really great & understanding & I felt confident leaving Big Daddy in her care. I will definitely use her practice again & recommend her to others.

“Just brilliant!”

I have been going to Goddards Goodmayes for about 5 years now. I have a beautiful, over-excited and very nervous German Shepherd who crashes around, weighing in at about 50 kilos. Unless a vet can diagnose a condition at 50 paces, a trip to the vet has always been stressful for all concerned and on occasion, needed a sedative (for me as well as the dog!). Julia and the nurses were fantastic - calm, friendly, professional. I was very impressed with the careful instruction and no-rush approach adopted by the staff and the visit turned out to be a complete pleasure. Love this surgery - wouldn't dream of going anywhere else! Thank you to all the staff for your wonderful care.

“Jamie”

I am a regular cluient of the Goodmayes practice as i have 4 cats.
My neighbour James had an old cat called Jamie who started having fits.
We took her to Goddards at Goodmayes and sadly had to have her put to sleep.
Julia was absolutely amazing. She explained everything step by step and helped us understand that we were doing the right thing. Jan was also so lovely and comforted us as we had to let Jamie go.
There was no rushing and everything was handled so lovingly.
I cannot express the kindness and empathy we were shown by Julia and Jan.
I highly recommend Goodmayes practice and i refuse to take any of my furry babies elsewhere.
thankyou Julia and Jan xx

“Trusted Vet”

I have been coming to this vet since 1997 and I wouldn't think about going anywhere else. As with a doctor, you build up trust with the people who look after your furry friends. Being a household that has quite a menagerie, it has been great over the years to get advise and good care for all our animals. I would whole heartedly recommend Goodmayes vets for all your animals needs.

“Commendation”

Dear Julia,Danielle,andTash,

My wife brought in Tia today for her six-monthly Blood test,which is something we dread because of Tia's behavioral issues. And the obvious distress it generates in her.

However, due to the superb administrations of you all, this was not the case this time. And consequently, i felt it only right to pass on to you both my wife's and mine, gratitude for the care, love, and compassion you showed to Tia and we thank you personally and of course, on Tia's behalf for being absolutely fantastic today.

Thank you all so much.

Terry, Jill, and Tia

“Baby Peter”

Dear Julia
I would like to say a very big thank you about the way you and the girls treated Baby Peter when he came to have his dental treatment. As you know Peter is a special needs cat who always requires that little bit more special attention. He got the best treatment ever to be expected thanks to you and the girls.
I have been coming to Goddards for over 12 years now with my furry babies (some sadly deceased) and the service has always been wonderful.
Once again thank you Julia and to the girls for being the best vets surgery ever.
Luv
Bal xx

“Very friendly and helpful ”

The reception staff were so friendly and were full of engery, which was unexpected.

The Vet himself (Irish man) was very helpful and full of advice as he could also see I was a first time owner.

The place itself is bright, clean and very clam which is what you don't expect from a vets army surgery.

Definatly a 5star

Thanks :-)
