“They just encouraged me to euthanise my cat.”

My cat had a broken tail and although it was a serious case the vet on call had no idea how to deal with the problem so they just strongly suggested putting my cat to sleep or getting a pet taxi over to the Royal Veterinary College in Potters bar the other side of London. They just gave me the impression that there was no hope for my cat but on subsequently reading up more I found that there was a 50% chance of full recovery.
So after a lot of pressure to put her out of her misery I reluctantly agreed to have her euthanised. I regret this and I believe you should give your pet every chance to live and I think the vet on call was just trying to save face in just getting her put down because the condition was beyond her expertise.
When they put my cat down it was unsuccessful and and not without pain- they resorted to sticking two needles in her liver to end her life- again another example of the amateurism of this vet on call.
After all this I got a bill for £400 pounds and after paying the vet did not even bother to see me out of the building.

Shocking stuff.

This cat was examined by one of our experienced emergency and critical care vets who found that she had sadly suffered a very serious injury in which the base of the tail had been pulled away from the pelvis. Both her examination and x-ray revealed that the extent of the injury was so severe that there was no reasonable prospect that the cat would recover sufficiently to enjoy a good quality of life. In much less severe cases it is possible for nerve damage to be reversed but the advice in this case to euthanaise was the kindest one given the nature of her injury which was not of the type where recovery could be hoped for. We are quite experienced at treating so-called tail-pull injuries, particularly given our in-house specialist in neurology so I know that had there been any reasonable prospect of recovery, this would have been the option recommended. Losing a loved pet is never easy, particularly in traumatic circumstances and I am sympathetic to this owners anguish.

“You make my tail wag!”

Milan is a top professional vet! The vet nurses are great too, Karen has been a constant friendly face to see at the surgery over the many years I have been coming to Goddard, dealing with queries and admin and efficiently referring on to Milan. One look at Milan and my labrador Rosie's paws leave the floor in delight. I like Milan's approach, he has Rosie's total trust and knows how to return her to good health when she has been feasting on puddles and other nasty things. Milan will recommend antibiotics when necessary but he can often find an alternative successful approach. It was a comfort to see what a quick recovery Rosie made when she came to Milan for spaying. Milan, you definitely make Rosie's tail wag! Also worthy of note is Dundonald's out of hours service which refers to Goddard Stone Lion where we have benefited from the state of the art vet hospital facilities when disaster strikes.

“Excellent Care & Friendly Team”

What a lovely team to look after our beloved pets! We had been bringing our dog to this Vet Practice for the past year when we decided to go to Australia. The Vet and Nurses were so helpful and made the whole process alot easier and stress-free. They were professional and caring and knew their stuff. I can't recommend this place enough.

“Caring and professional ”

I have been coming to this surgery for at least 15 years with various of our cats and dogs. They always provide a caring and professional service and I continue to be happy with the treatment and advice given, sometimes in stressful situations for both animals and owners. I would thoroughly recommend this surgery.
