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 was our first visit to this Vet to get a Health Certificate for my dog to fly back to our home in Hawaii. They were professional, prompt and very reasonably priced. I would definitely come here if I lived here!

  • We have taken several of our family pets to Canal Veterinary Hospital over the years. We have always experienced quality care and a caring atmosphere. We were especially touched by the care and concern that Dr Larsson displayed when he came to our home so that we could put our beloved Labrador to sleep. He made the experience so peaceful and personal.
    We would highly recommend Canal Veterinary Hospital.

  • I had nothing but bad experiences from local vets previously, and Canal Veterinary Hospital changed my opinion of what a vet could be. They treat my animals like their own. Dr. Heather and Dr. Larson are both incredible at caring for my pets and communicating every step along the way.

    When I took my oldest dog in for a dental procedure, Dr. Heather noted a lump on her leg that looked abnormal. She tested it, found out it was cancerous, and removed it all in one visit just because she was concerned for my dog. I love this clinic, the staff, and will come here with all my pets.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!!

  • We knew in our hearts our dog would have to be put down. They were truthful about the process of surgery etc. and that made our decision a little easier. Everyone was so kind and didn’t make us feel like we were “bad” pet owners.

  • 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.
