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

  • My cat had severe dental issues, and Dr. Heather and her team provided excellent care. My cat easily, and happily, recovered from her surgery, and is now a very happy girl. All of the staff at Canal Veterinary Hospital showed professionalism and compassion for both my cat and me. I highly recommend this veterinary practice.

  • 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.

  • Canal Vet is Paws down the Best Veterinary office I have ever taken our pets to. Dr Heather gets right down on the floor with your pet and is at eye level with them. You can see how much she cares for your pet. Dr Larson helped me through one of the hardest times in my life. My precious Baby Boy Georgie (Blue Nose Pitbull) was very very sick. Dr Larson stayed with him through the weekend to care for him and try to get him better. Dr Larson had to call me and tell me he wasn’t going to make it he was just to sick to survive. I could tell it hurt him so to tell me. Dr Larson opened his office for me on Sunday so I could be with Georgie before we had to put to sleep. He gave me as much time as I needed to cuddle him and say my goodbyes. The office took care of all the cremation, giving me a print of his paw and Dr Larson shaved the diamond of white hair off his neck for me to keep. I will always be truly grateful for the care, kindness and love Georgie received. I am forever grateful that I have found a veterinary office that truly loves and cares for my pets as if they are their own! ❤️ Mandy Cooper

  • After only 5 years with us our beloved fur baby had to be put down... our hearts were broken and our family was shaken. The great vets and technicians at Canal Vet did a wonderful job at helping us transition smoothly through this new stage. They made our fur baby comfortable and happy for his last minutes with us here on this earth. They gave us the time and space needed to say our final farewell. Thankyou canal vet form our fur baby and family.

  • Great Veterinarian’s for pets. The staff is nice & courteous especially during this covid19 pandemic. The Veterinarian’s are very attentive. My 6yr old small dog got very sick. He lost 10 pounds & he got a Mellitus diabetes diagnosis & kidney & liver issues. It’s been a several months but my dog is showing positive improvements. I’m very grateful for the service this establishment has given my precious little guy. Give them a chance. Let me stress their prices are very fair. I am a happy customer. July 25, 2020

  • 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.

  • 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.
