As I write this, my beautiful cat is contentedly purring away on my lap - a far cry from the state he was in a month ago after coming in one Saturday morning with a huge open wound to his jaw. Within a few hours he was being seen at Goddard's Wanstead Hospital. Over the following days, he was treated at Hackney Goddard by Rebecca and Brian. The surgery to repair his jaw was not straightforward due to the size of the wound, but Brian did an amazing job - it has healed beautifully without any trace. Not only the vets but all the staff at Hackney Goddard (and Wanstead for that matter) were utterly professional and incredibly kind, both to my cat and also to me in my sometimes overwrought state. I had complete confidence in their skill and in the quality of their care and I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone in the Hackney area. Thank you so much, Brian and team, for everything you did - it is hugely appreciated!

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.

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 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!

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.

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!

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.
