What Our Clients Say
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.Martha G.10/10/2019
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.Cami Evans6/21/2020
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 A.10/10/2019
When we began taking our pug to Canal, we had heard of them through a family member. They had treated them with such kindness that we decided to drive our pug the 40 minute round trip to their office, just to experience the same thing.
They never mistreated my dog, I never felt lied to, and I never felt like they cared about anything other than my dog’s well-being. We went through quite a bit of treatment with them, and the professional attitudes and demeanor of every doctor and worker kept us coming back. We had to leave only when we moved away, and they have still been available to us even over the year we have been gone. If we ever move back to the area, Canal will always be our first choice, as well as our only recommendation to friends and family.Kortnee McDonald8/29/2020

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!A Google User8/31/2019
After only 5 years with us our beloved fur baby had to be put down... our hearts were broken and our family was shaken. The great vets and technicians at Canal Vet did a wonderful job at helping us transition smoothly through this new stage. They made our fur baby comfortable and happy for his last minutes with us here on this earth. They gave us the time and space needed to say our final farewell. Thankyou canal vet form our fur baby and family.Rhonda Harper7/04/2020
Such a warm, caring environment. They are fast and efficient without sacrificing on quality of care. I love bringing my pups here.Gabriella Costa7/08/2020
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
