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
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.Derrick Aschwanden8/03/2019
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.Catherine Bailey4/12/2020
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.

I've been taking my "kids" to Canal Veterinary Hospital for years. We've received only the best care. The staff is friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. I will continue going there for as long as I am owned by cats... and that will be a very long time.Snuzzy Buggles11/23/2019
Canal Veterinary Hospital is by far the most amazing veterinarian I have EVER taken my pets to. Dr. Heather and the staff (as well as Dr. Larsson) have always given my pets the best medical care possible and have always been wonderful to my pets and to myself during difficult times. Dr. Heather and staff...I have such love and appreciation for you! Your knowledge, kindness, professionalism and care are by far the very best I've ever known. I cannot say or write enough wonderful things about you. I truly thank God to have found this awesome office. I'm forever a client.Casandra McCants3/14/2020

Office friendly, doc knowledgeable. A good service provided is a health report outlining your pets info, lab results (if taken).diagnosis and treatment. If your pet needs emergency care you have an accurate record that was given to you at checkout. Their prices seem reasonable.Nancy Pinoli1/04/2020
Dr. Heather, Dr. Larson and Julie are the absolute best!!! They always provide the best service for my fur babies and always explain things in terms I can understand. They provide options and never make me feel pressured to do one thing over another...
I love this team and highly recommend them for your fur baby.Chelsea Shanders3/14/2020
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.Cait Sweet5/09/2020
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!Tina K.10/10/2019
