Goddard Veterinary Group provides accessible pet healthcare through multiple practices and 24-hour hospitals, with services including vaccinations, flea/worm treatments, microchip implantation, dentistry services and microchip updates to keep pets in optimal health.
VetPartners’ completed acquisition of Goddard may be subject to in-depth investigation after the Competition and Markets Authority found 11 local markets where competition concerns may have arisen from this merger. According to CMA analysis, competition concerns include reduced choice and potentially higher prices as a result of this deal.
Preventative Health Care
Goddard Veterinary Group Chalfont st peter Lower Road Chalfont Saint Peter Gerrards Cross provides preventative services for pets, such as annual wellness exams, vaccinations, flea/worm treatments and dental services. In addition, Goddard offers microchipping – implanting a tiny chip with your pet’s ID number under their skin so they can be identified if lost or stolen animals become separated from their owners – in Wimbledon Village clinics for 24-hour emergency care for dogs, cats, small animals and exotic species including exotics species as well as providing mobile ambulance service when necessary. Their recent acquisition by VetPartners has resulted in CMA investigation into potential competition concerns regarding possible competition issues between competing companies involved.
Goddard Veterinary Group prides themselves on offering top-quality service and community engagement, with special consideration given to pets, homeless animals, and future veterinary leaders. In recognition of this dedication they have earned numerous awards and accolades including being recognized as leaders in One Health (an approach to public and animal health that recognizes interconnection between people, pets, livestock, plants and the shared environment) – in addition to supporting Oxbow Animal Health Scholarship and Rocket Technology Pioneer Award programs for veterinary students.
Microchips are small implants the size of grains of rice implanted beneath your pet’s skin with their own ID number and registered in a database, to help reunite you if they become lost or stolen.
Microchipping is safe for virtually all pets, including cats, dogs, rabbits, ferrets, birds and reptiles. Beginning at five weeks of age they can be microchipped without anaesthetic; for very small puppies or kittens general anaesthesia may be required instead.
New legislation in England now makes microchipping all dogs older than eight weeks mandatory, although this high-tech method should always be combined with traditional forms such as collars with ID tags to provide greater assurance.

My dogs love coming here – the staff are always welcoming and helpful, the doctors are knowledgeable and thorough, and the facilities are in top shape. However, this practice should stop adding charges for procedures which are unnecessary (e.g. blood tests for cats getting spayed) which constitute unethical practices and should be stopped asap.
