The Goddard Veterinary Group was established in 1952 by Arthur Goddard and since then, under the leadership of his son Philip, the Group has expanded to become the largest family-owned veterinary group in the UK. We now have 47 branches and three flagship hospitals in and around Greater London which means we can be here for you and your pet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  For your peace of mind and for continuity of care, your pet’s medical history is accessible in any of our branches or hospitals any time of the day or night.

As well as offering routine healthcare for your pets, our RCVS Tier 3 hospitals are there to support their local branch network with more advanced facilities, specialist referral services and emergency care around the clock.

The Goddard Veterinary Group is managed and staffed by a long-standing, dedicated and loyal team mindful of its commitments to patients and clients alike.
