“My amazing experience with these guys”

My staffy had an aural haematoma which required draining.

The last time it happened, my old vets put my dog under for the procedure. However, due to their amazing calming skills and general dog confidence, Brian and his team managed to do the procedure with my dog fully conscious. His recovery was so much better than the previous time, due to the lack of sedation.

I am incredibly grateful for the service I received, and if you are searching for a new vet - I would strongly suggest these guys. This was my first visit to the surgery, and I was blown away by the team there.

“Thank you for great service for the last ten years”

Brian has been caring for my greyhound for the past ten years. Thanks to Brian and the wonderful staff in reception, my dog feels relaxed and confident when he visits the practice. Brian is a really friendly and highly professional vet who listens to owner's concerns, treating both animals and humans with great respect.

“I would wholeheartedly recommend this surgery to everyone.”

I have taken my dog to this practice since she was six weeks old and she is now nearly seven. Brian is a great vet, considerate, patient and really cares about the animals. He is also quite good with neurotic humans! Heartily recommend this surgery, although I do miss Janice!

“Friendly & Efficient”

This is a very friendly and efficient practice. My dog's been a patient since he was a puppy and has had two ops at Goddard Hackney and he still gets excited when we visit. I get loads of practical advice so I can make an informed choice about what treatment if any to undertake. A really high level of service.

“Simply the best”

Dr Brian Barnett saved my cat that had been diagnosed with a lethal disease. A true miracle which I could not be more thankful for. He took the time to send me emails to explain the situation way after his working hours and gave all the support I needed throughout the cure. He loves animals and looks through all details. He even saw my cat had an issue with her eye which I had never spotted in 6 months! He went under various surgeries and came up with the best results in terms of health and scars. Golden hands!
Long life to my cat... And Dr Barnett!

“The Best Treatment my Dog has Received - Do not hesitate to use this vets.”

Do not hesitate to use this wonderful vets for any treatment. Coming here is without exaggeration one of the best things that has ever happened for my (now 13 year old) dog.
Goddards were recommended to me by a fellow dog owner and I have to pass on my warmest recommendation.
Brian and the rest of the team at this practice provided the best care my dog has received in a long life, calm assured, creative and professional they have seen him through a series of illnesses and surgery and left him happier and fitter than he has been for years, They have also helped me to help my dog through weight loss, and have always respected my wishes and budget with any care. The results speak for themselves.
This is a vets that truly cares about animals and their owners, and over my many visits II have seen countless others receive the same high quality, friendly compassionate care.

Thank you so much to Goddards and Brian - from Rocco and myself.

“Remarkable recovery of my cat”

I want to thank everyone at Godard's on Well St. especially Brian the vet, for their recent care of my cat Yoda. I've been bringing my cats to Godard's for the last 15 years and the vets and the desk staff have always been incredibly caring and professional. When Yoda's brother died a couple of years ago they were so wonderfully sensitive and understanding of my sadness at his passing.

Recently I came home one evening and Yoda seemed very suddenly to have gone blind and deaf. In retrospect the deafness had been happening for a while but I only really noticed the extent of it once his sight went as well.

Brian was his usual caring and professional self, but held out very little hope (given the degree of retinal detachment that had already taken place) that Yoda's sight would return - even if the high blood pressure that had caused the blindness was helped by medication,

Two weeks later and incredibly Yoda's sight has actually returned! This is of course thanks to the care and expertise of Brian and the other Godard's staff, but the thing that really impressed me was the joy that Brian expressed on seeing Yoda's completely unexpected recovery: he even called other members of staff in to share the good news! This human approach, even more than expertise and professionalism of the staff there, is what for me, makes Godard's on Well St. a special treatment centre.

Thank you again to all the staff at Godard's for their humane caring (in every sense of the word)! And for seeing both Yoda and me through this worrying time.

“Top vet”

Our dog has needed several appointments in the last couple of months and the team at Godard's are always welcoming and patient with anxious owner and poorly pet. Brian removed a small tumour from the dog's eyelid. The prospect made us apprehensive but she is now fully recovered from the very skilful surgery she received. Our dog is a much loved family friend and it is lovely to go to Godard's and to feel so well cared for. Ailments are carefully considered and monitored and we are seeing good progress. Highly recommended (but do get pet insurance!).

“Visit to Vet with our cat”

Our cat is very timid and had not needed to see a vet for 15 years. Today we took her to see Brian the vet because she had a very sore paw. She didn't want to go in her pet carrier box and she tried hard to escape from it but we were called in promptly and Brian was so calm and soothing that she soon settled down with him and submitted to the examination without any fuss. Brian was also very friendly and reassuring with my daughter. He carefully explained the possible reasons for the problem and the treatment required.
