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!

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

  • They had taken such good care of my niece and her pet during a crisis situation that we decided to switch Vets. We now bring our dogs here and have received warm, helpful, professional, and personal care from all the staff. The biggest deal for us was the level of detailed information and care the Vet gave us with our pets. Grateful for doctors Larsson and Heather.

  • Every time I have to take one of our kids in Dr. Heather is always very helpful. Their staff is very kind and efficient. They definitely have your pets best interest in mind. My biggest issue with other vets office’s is that they seem to do unnecessary testing and your bill always ends up HUGE. Canal vet does a great job at listening to you and your your pets issues to know exactly what needs to be done. They are knowledgeable and I trust them 100% with my kids. I definitely recommend them for whatever your pets needs may be and thank you Canal Vet for always taking care of our fur family!

  • I brought a rescued dog in who I was trying to help. She had a bad infection and not in good shape. The team at Canal Veterinary hospital were so kind and professional and did a fabulous job at helping me with this special sweet dog. I definitely recommend them to whoever might want an awesome experience at the vet.

  • I've been bringing my family pets here for years and have never been disappointed in the care they received. Recently, I had the heartbreaking experience of having to let my beloved Jack Russell pass on. Dr. Larsson was extremely empathetic and professional, understanding the smallest detail and attending to my baby girl with kindness and compassion. He will forever have my utmost respect and gratitude. The entire staff is great. My hometown vet!

  • We have been clients since we got our first dog ‘Buster’. The staff is always polite and courteous. Each time Buster has needed medical attention the Doctor’s treat us like he is the most important dog they’ve ever helped. Canal Vet Hospital is a state of the art treatment center with a family friendly atmosphere. The knowledgeable doctors and accommodating staff are professionals by which others can be measured.

  • 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'

  • Our family and extended family have taken all our pets for regular care, extended care, as well as emergency care for 20 years to our Canal Vet. The receptionists are friendly and treat our pets as their own. The doctors and technicians are gentle and kind and up-to-date knowledgeable on current care for the situation. In the 20 years, we, of course, had a few pets die due to age. These doctors send hand written notes of sympathy. You just can't get any better than CANAL VETERINARY HOSPITAL.

  • Dr Heather has been caring for my cat, Trixie, the past year and a half. Trixie suffers from IBD and recently had a serious flareup. She was very sick losing significant weight very quickly and refusing to eat. Dr. Heather made time to see Trixie the same day I called and every day for an entire week for injections and treatment. We came very close to losing Trixie and credit Dr. Heather with saving her life. This all occurred the last week of March 2020 during the pandemic. Canal Vet also has an ultrasound machine and does in-house blood work which is wonderful for pets like Trixie who need their condition monitored closely. Additionally, Dr. Heather is very kind, personable, intelligent, and takes the time to explain Trixie's condition to me. The Canal Vet staff is all excellent and very efficient. I'm very happy with Dr. Heather and Canal Veterinary Hospital.
    Five stars!

  • This is by far the best veterinary office in town! Small, well run, no long wait times, fantastic staff and doctors. We started coming here after being clients at Taylor for many years, since they opened, and I am so happy we made the change. Doctors and staff here know how to handle frightened pets and they spend a lot of quality time with you, never a rushed appointment and they do not overbook themselves. I am very happy and will continue to bring all our pets here.
