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

  • Very happy with the entire experience. The staff is super friendly and helpful the lobby is super clean and
    (DOES NOT) smell like a dog kennel. The smell is one of the biggest differences between this veterinary hospital and other veterinary hospitals. when you can tell how your dog reacts to a clean environment versus a not well sanitized environment as soon as your pet walks in. It was amazing to see my dog not try to rip my arm off to get out of the building as soon as possible. Our vet was super friendly and very very animal friendly. The vets demeanor with animals was amazing. my dog never volunteers to sit still or approaches strangers in the way she approached this new vet. I would definitely recommend bringing your pet here. They also have a huge variety of healthy animal treats and foods. And everything seemed pretty reasonably priced.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Great customer service and awesome staff. Everyone was friendly and interacted well with my dog. When I picked her up from the kennel on a weekend and she had kennel cough the vet responded right away, got her medication and she started to improve immediately.
