Goddard Veterinary Group Chingford Boarding Kennels & Cattery

160 Chingford Mount Rd, Chingford, London E4 9BS, UK – 020 8529 0979

Very happy with leaving our cat here for 10 days. Nice roomy pens for the animals with outside space which is unusual and great! The girls looking after the cats (that we met) clearly loved animals very much and certainly appeared to enjoy working with and caring for them. We kept in touch regularly with the cattery while we were away, the staff were great and shared photos with us via email which was nice. The cat came home grumpy (he doesn't like being left) but calm well cared for. Overall a very good service that represents good value for money, and we will certainly be returning next time we go away - highly recommended.

I have been taking my 3-legged Staffie here for years. I don't have to worry about leaving her as she looks forward to the trip and the staff are so kind and attentive and make a real fuss of her. She always looks well and lively when I pick her up. Would highly recommend and especially for dogs like mine who have special requirements and need a bit of personalized care..

Great cattery, looked after my cat for 2 weeks while we were away on holiday. Great facilities and friendly staff

This is a very good cattery. Perhaps not the cheapest, but your kitty will be safe, happy and well looked after.

The Vet Waltham Forest

Unit B6 & B7 Circular Point Highams Park, London E4 9JD, UK – 020 3376 3965

Absolutely fantastic vet, very worth the value ,Vets so friendly and helpful ,giving us the very best of advice. Extremely professional, and such a welcoming lady at reception desk-its great how the prices are displayed so clearly on web page and behind front desk. There is a cat waiting area and dog waiting area, to avoid distress between both animals !

Friendly service, everyone at The Vet's is helpful and kind. I have several pets and they have had unexpected worrying issues, one after the other. Each health problem was addressed immediately, and my pets are safe. I know going to The Vet saved their life already! I finally found some Vets who really love my pets, and, who really know what they are doing!! 100% recommended, with many many thanks

Goddard Veterinary Group Wanstead Veterinary Hospital

84 New Wanstead, London E11 2SY, UK – 020 8989 7744

I cannot praise this place enough. I had to take my beloved cat there yesterday for her final journey and they arranged a private room for us to wait in so she was not disturbed by the other animals and obviously because I was in pieces. The receptionist was wonderful and the vet who saw us was kind, compassionate and loving to my Tilly. She gave us time to spend with her and was gentle and sweet with her and Tilly's passing was peaceful and loving. I have been here before a few times for various animal emergencies and they have always been wonderful.

I have been to this vets a few times now. The emergency vet for one of my cats cystitis were great and I could not be happier about having my cat recovered last year. Recently I went into the vets again for an infection from a cat fight. The vet was not really that helpful in regards to information about what we could do apart from bringing him back the next day so they can put him under anaesthetic and have the puss liquid removed as it might be infected. He originally said he will try and get all the puss out so we don't have to come back the next day. He easily gave up and told us to go back after 5 mins. I had to question him how much this will cost.. Then he told me £500, just to removed puss from a swollen area.. That consultation and injection already cost £75 that day. I went to another vets nearby and they treated him with a consultation for £18 total!! That's a massive difference in price... Also they gave me more information on what I could do. I feel the service from Goddard is not as well as it could be and money seems to be priority over discussion of the cats wellbeing.
