I have recently transferred to Goddard's from a larger practice and I did this not because my previous practice was bad, but because seeing the nature of how the team at Highbury operated made me see I had to change to them.
Being a smaller practise they really come to know your pet(s) and are able to get the root of any issues they may have. Their veterinary knowledge is exceptional. They are wonderfully welcoming and one of the excellent things about the way they have the clinic set up is having veterinary nurses at the front desk, so you don't need to make an appointment to speak to a vet over each issue you have about your animals needs. I have learned so much and I am very grateful to all the additional help and advice they have given me. And I most definitely have much happier cats because of what I have learned.
I really couldn't recommend this practice more highly.

We recently started coming to the Highbury branch having got our rescue dog.
They were absolutely brilliant about settling her on her first visit, lots of treats and reassurance before they put her on the table to trim her nails. The head vet gave us lots of advice about her breed and how to train her - so helpful.
Ever since, our dogs strains to actually go IN the vets, she enjoyed it so much - a first for me! Our subsequent visit was an equally relaxed and happy experience for her and for us.
Lovely staff, friendly atmosphere and a real expert service - I can't recommend Goddard Highbury enough.

Louise (the vet) and Lauren (nurse) are always friendly and willing to help.
Scott was ill when he was a puppy and staff were amazing.
Scott was a very fussy eater for a long time. They came to the bottom of the problem, providing excellent dietary advice. Staff is always approachable and always find time to help even if you just pop in without the appointment.
Scott (my Scottish terrier) loves going there, usually you would expect from a dog to turn away.
They are also running reminder scheme, so you will be reminded by text or letter when your pet needs vaccination, worming or flea treatment.
If you need a special food it will be ordered for you to pick up in a short period of time.
All in all excellent staff provides an excellent service. I would always trust them when it's about my dog's health.

This is a great practice. Louise has been treating our cat Hobbit for many years, and is unfailingly kind, capable and informative. The nurses are also friendly and helpful, and great at juggling appointments, insurance claims and the dietary preferences of a mildly fussy cat. I'm very happy to recommend this practice.

Our marvelous vet Louise and her nurse Lucinda at the Highbury practice managed to create a very calm, spiritual,supportive and loving atmosphere for the death of our beloved cat and family member Kiki. We were devastated at having to decide to put him to sleep, but it was the right thing to do - for him - and it was arranged to happen in our own home and this felt right. We have had a long and wonderful realtionship with the practice. I could nott recommend them more highly.

Last year my cat was sadly run over on a busy road. This was a very distressing time as i'm sure you can understand. My friends were very supportive. One of thesse wonderful people was Lauren, a nurse at the Highbury branch.
She arranged all of the details for me and also did me another amazing thing, she helped me to find a needy cat to help.
Point was abandoned for no good reason and needed a home. After a little while he has become a permenant member of my family.
All of the staff at Highbury have been amazingly supportive with their time, advice and support and I happily travel from Chingford as I know Point (and myself) will recieve the best in help from them.
