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

  • All of the staff at Canal Vet have been absolutely wonderful. Dr. Heather is so attentive & very thorough in her exams. We're always taken back to the room very quickly & the exam is never rushed. It's very obvious how much Dr. Heather & staff love animals. Very happy I made the switch to Canal Vet!!

  • My entire family has taken their dogs here since I can remember. They are the most considerate and caring people. They only hire people who truly care about the health of your pet. They are a godsend to those of us who love our pets like family.

  • Canal Vets are just minutes away from my house, but that was just the icing on the cake. The day after I got my new dog I checked in with them and was delighted with their personal care for both my dog and me, as a new owner! Though I only had Marley for 2 years, they were always ready to help with whatever problem we encountered. I hope to have another dog soon, and will trust Canal with our care when we do!

  • We previously went to a larger animal hospital in town for our pup. They were incredibly difficult to schedule with and you weren’t allowed to go in with your pet for treatment. Our pup had an emergency and the bigger hospital had a large fee to be seen. I called canal and they fit us in between patients and took care of our pup. Now he has grown and is a healthy adult dog thanks to Canal. The receptionists are really friendly and helpful(wasn’t the case at our other animal hospital), the vet techs are very helpful/knowledgeable and the doctor dedicates time to speaking with you to explain everything and you can tell she really cares. She also doesn’t overcharge you for unnecessary things. Canal does everything right and we are really happy with their services.

  • 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.

  • I went to Canal Veterinary Hospital for a second opinion for the care of my elderly dog. It was by far the best choice to be made. They have been very careful to balance his treatment always making sure I have all the options explained. I can not recommend them higher!

  • Love Canal Vet!! I’m 67 & have had pets all my life - this is the first place that treats my pets like family! So much expertise, care, gentleness. My dogs feel like they r visiting friends when we go there. Plus Dr spends time w them, researches best possible treatments for them, and even calls home to check on them (after a surgery)
    I would give them 10 stars!
