Welcome To Canal Veterinary Hospital

A righteous person cares for the needs of his/her animals. – Proverbs 12:10

We, at Canal Veterinary Hospital, have enjoyed serving pets and their families since 1986. Our veterinarians see themselves as privileged caretakers of the mysterious human-animal bond created by God. We believe our pet(s) change our lives for the good; and we love helping them do just that!

Dr Deleon, Dr Larsson, and staff want to be your most trusted source of veterinary care in the Central Valley. To earn your trust, we strive to consistently provide timely, relevant, affordable, and reliable services. We want to take the time to get to know you, your pet(s) and your stories as we develop specific plans to help you best care for your loved one(s).

Canal Veterinary Hospital is the place where “bonds go beyond our pets.” We look forward to being your most trusted friends and professionals.

What Our Clients Say

  • I first met Dr Larson when I took my first dog there to figure what was wrong with him. Turned out my dog had cancer and wasn’t going to make it. The Canal Vet team were so kind and comforting when I had to put him down. Today, I have a new pup and I continue seeing Dr Larson and his team because of their welcoming vibes, fast response, affordable costs, and kindness. When I returned with my new dog worried about the lumps on his neck, Dr Larson remembered about my previous dog and that was touching. I’m moving 3 hours away and will still continue to see him for check ups.

  • This was our first visit to this Vet to get a Health Certificate for my dog to fly back to our home in Hawaii. They were professional, prompt and very reasonably priced. I would definitely come here if I lived here!

I’ve tried numerous vets for my 4 animals and wasn’t happy with any of them.....and then as a fluke, i tried Canal Vet Hospital and I could not be more pleased!! Dr. Heather is AWESOME!!! I feel blessed to have found such a kind, caring and great Dr. for my senior dog.

  • We took our beloved kitty to Canal to get a second opinion about a diagnosis that was heartbreaking for us. Everyone there assisted us with kindness, compassion, patience, and understanding and provided a thorough and thoughtful approach on how to make our kitties last few days with us the best they could be. They gave us peace of mind in a very difficult time and gave us some beautiful days with our precious pet ♥️ We couldn’t be more grateful for them.

  • I foster kittens and have needed to take some to Canal Vet. Everyone there is friendly and compassionate. My kittens have received excellent care. The Vets take time to explain what is going on, and the appropriate treatment.

  • The staff here are so wonderful and take their time to explain everything you should know about your animals health. They really make sure you make the most informed decision you can and I love that. And they really are great with my cat. They even taught me a good way to keep her still if I need to. 10/10 would recommend.

  • They made me feel like I was bringing my pet to a trusted friend for care. There was no long wait line and we were not rushed through the appointment. The doctor called at home to check on our sick pet and give us the blood results as soon as they were available. I couldn't be happier. I'
