Welcome to Thamesmead

Conveniently located within Thamesmead Shopping Centre Retail Park with ample of free parking, you will find our Thamesmead branch where a friendly and experienced team are waiting to meet you and your pet. This well-established practice became part of the Goddard Veterinary Group in 2006 and is extremely popular within the local community.

The practice is fully-equipped to care for you and your pet with our excellent on-site facilities, allowing blood testing, x-rays and operations to be performed. Please see the additional services we offer below.

In the event of a veterinary emergency or if your pet is unwell out of hours, for your convenience and due to its location, a full out of hours emergency service is provided locally by another practice. Should your pet need to be seen by this emergency service please call us and the recorded message will give you all the details you require. You can rest assured that once we are open, our team will liaise directly with the emergency practice to ensure your pet receives the best possible care and in many circumstances we can arrange for your pet to be transferred back to us to continue treatment until they have made a full recovery.

You are also welcome to attend our Wanstead Veterinary Hospital call 020 8989 7744.  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.

This branch is accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), following a diligent assessment the RCVS is satisfied that we maintain the highest standards of veterinary care.
