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.

  • The only vet in the central valley that could take a new patient within a few days...everyone else was months out and we needed someone asap. The entire staff is extremely kind and helpful. Dr. Larsson and Dr. Heather are great. Highly recommend.

  • Every worker at canal veterinary hospital is very sweet and caring. I’ve went to many vets and no place has come close to caring as much as they do. I recommend this place to anyone who wants top quality for their pets. They are the best around!

  • We have been taking our cats to Canal Veterinary Hospital for over 20 years. The doctors are great with our pets - knowledgeable, thorough, kind, and compassionate. Since we have multiple pets Dr. Heather comes to our home for routine checkups and shots. It’s a great convenience for us.

  • I took my boxer puppies in for a litter exam. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They helped me get my crate out with the little wiggle butts. They answered all the questions I had. I will definitely be back for any of my pet’s future visits.

  • They are absolutely amazing. Their office is clean. Some people say they are expensive but they are a cheaper than the other vets we’ve been to. They took good care of our puppy. We actually were extremely loyal to another vet in town until we had massive scheduling issues with them. My pup would have missed vital vaccines if it wasn’t for them. We’ve only been 2-3 times but so far we’ve had nothing but a great experience.

  • They treated my sweet tigger so well, this was my first experience with this vet clinic and first time neutering. They called me twice giving me updates on him, they eased my nerves about him going under. Very clean and decorated on the inside and very friendly front desk staff. They also get back to you very fast if you message or call them. Thank you guys!

  • Canal Veterinary Hospital is by far the most amazing veterinarian I have EVER taken my pets to. Dr. Heather and the staff (as well as Dr. Larsson) have always given my pets the best medical care possible and have always been wonderful to my pets and to myself during difficult times. Dr. Heather and staff...I have such love and appreciation for you! Your knowledge, kindness, professionalism and care are by far the very best I've ever known. I cannot say or write enough wonderful things about you. I truly thank God to have found this awesome office. I'm forever a client.

  • 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!
