Feel so happy when my chihuahua jimmychoo has to visit or have some surgery.every member of the team at Islington are so kind and helpful and very happy with the service they provide.

The team at Zasman Vet Islington is nothing but amazing. My cat Jack has been living with CKD & we have been coming here for over 18 months. The team is very professional providing really great advice and they have shown so much love & care for my little man. Even when he has to spend the night at the hospital, he never shows any signs of stress. He gets cuddles and kisses from everyone in the team. We couldn't have been more grateful. Despite Jack's condition has been going on for a long time now, the team has managed it very well he is actually fit enough to go back to Singapore with me which would not have happened without the team. Thank you Zasman Vet!

Goddard Veterinary Group Kennington

When our cat was recently unwell he had an emergency appointment and admission to Stone Lion hospital in Wimbledon and cannot fault their care and service. We arrived out of hours and were seen immediately. We were constantly kept informed of his progress by the vet, including a daily text to update on how he'd been overnight. The speed of investigations and treatment, and the openness of clinical discussions and options should be the envy of the NHS. Louise (the resident vet) was fantastic throughout and after his admission. He was promptly referred to the RVC for specialist care. His ongoing treatment, provided by Goddard's (Kennington), has continued the highest standard of care and service - they have always accommodated him for an emergency review when again he became unwell, and they kept us informed of his results and progress along the way. We always felt part of the decision making process. Anna (lead vet in Kennington) is fantastic - truly caring and compassionate, and reassuring as a 'patient' to be in the hands of. The nurses at both centres are great - knowledgeable, caring and accommodating. We are very happy to have Goddard's as our local vets and to recommend it to others.

Goddards have always been a brilliant support to me and my cat. She was diagnosed with a heart condition shortly after I rescued her, and Roger Irish and the staff were kind, helpful as well as incredibly professional. My cat is also a total monster at the vet, and they have been extremely kind in not banning her. I've been a happy customer for three years, and were I not moving, I would stay for many more. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Everyone from the receptionist onwards is cheerful, highly capable and a pleasure to speak to.

I recently took my pet rats for treatment of URI. The staff are all so welcoming and friendly when entering the practice. I saw Ourania and she has been so helpful in getting my rats better. They truly do care about getting your pets better and not just about taking your money like some vets do. Highly recommend. Thank you.

Not a bad vet but nowhere near as experienced as Andrew and company, who owned and ran the practice till 2 years ago. The personal touch has been lost now it's a chain. Communication can be an issue and appointments are getting harder to book for when you want them. The vet's very sweet but the reception staff can be rather off-hand. After being with the practice > 17 years - I'd call them a currently average service.

This has got much more humane. The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet certain conditions. The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
