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!Jill Paulin10/26/2019
We've been coming here for years now, and everyone there has always been so friendly, and especially accommodating when we've had a serious issue with our dog. You can tell that they really care about what they're doing and also sincerely care about the animals they treat. I can't thank them enough for all that they've done for us and our dog. I highly recommend this location the next time you're looking for a veterinary office.Scott R.10/10/2019
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
We have taken our pets to Canal Vet for years. Our pets are a part of our family and Canal Vet has always done an excellent job of providing for all their health care needs. We trust them and feel safe and secure that our little guys are in good hands. Everyone is kind, friendly, and committed to keeping our pets healthy. We are grateful for their service and dedication.Barb Anderson8/01/2020
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 Aschwanden8/03/2019
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
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.

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
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
