Welcome to Goddard Vets Dundonald Road
Tucked away in a quiet residential area, opposite the Dundonald Recreation Ground, you will find our Dundonald Road branch. The practice has been treating pets within the local community for nearly 30 years and has been part of the Goddard Veterinary Group since 2003. Our dedicated and friendly team strive to provide the best possible care for their patients and pet owners under their care.
With our Stone Lion hospital just minutes away, should your pet need any advanced treatment, we will transfer the care to our dedicated team at Stone Lion Hospital.

Facilities & Services
Our laboratory offers a rapid and efficient service with fast turnaround of results. Many branches have state-of-the-art in-house equipment for an even faster service. In addition to testing for the disease in an unwell patient, we also offer screening tests before your pet undergoes an anaesthetic to ensure that we identify any previously unknown problems, helping us to ensure the anaesthetic is as safe as possible.
We offer 15-minute appointments as a standard for all consultations, giving you plenty of time to discuss your pet’s healthcare and ask any questions you may have. We are able to provide a range of services during the consultation and are always on hand to see your pet in an emergency if necessary.
Taking care of your pet’s teeth is vitally important for their overall health. Just as we brush our teeth each day and get regular dental check-ups, our pets also need regular preventative care, dental check-ups and dental treatment for a range of dental diseases or trauma. We recommend keeping up-to-date with your pet’s dental health and, as with any aspect of their wellbeing, we see prevention as a much better outcome than a cure.
Pet Insurance Information
People tend to think it’s only older pets that get ill and therefore younger pets don’t need pet insurance but we know from the patients we see each day that that is not the case. In fact, the younger your pet is when you insure them the better as it means you are less likely to have any existing conditions, which may not be covered by the policy and you can then receive more help covering the cost of any future treatment your pet needs.
Healthcare Plan – ProActive Pets
Budget monthly and save money on all your pet’s preventative healthcare needs. Our affordable plan allows you to pay a monthly direct debit to spread the cost of your pet’s vaccinations and parasite control products throughout the year. The costs are much less than our full retail price, and the plan offers a number of other benefits on top.
Pet neutering is a hot topic among owners across the UK with some non-medical theories and myths making people doubt the procedure for their dog, cat, rabbit or any other household pet. All Goddard Vets encourage owners to consider neutering their pets for a range of medical and behavioural benefits.
A microchip is a tiny glass capsule, about the size of a grain of rice, which is filled with electronic components giving a unique 15 digit number. Giving a pet a microchip is a relatively simple procedure.
Animal Health Certificates
Official Veterinarians are able to issue Animal Health Certificates enabling you to travel with your pet. There are a number of requirements that must be met before travel, so we recommend getting in touch with your local practice as early as possible if you might need your pet to travel abroad.
Protect your pet against many life-threatening diseases by vaccinating annually. We embrace modern vaccination protocols to ensure that your pet has the protection they need, whilst ensuring we do not vaccinate more often than is necessary. Speak to your local team for all the benefits of vaccination and the range of vaccinations we offer at an affordable price.
Wellness health screen
Spotting potential health issues before signs appear can help protect your pet from serious disease.
All of our branches have access to x-ray facilities for ease and speed of diagnosis. Many of our practices benefit from the latest technology in digital X-rays, which provides exceptionally clear images very quickly, ensuring your pet is under anaesthetic for the shortest possible time.
