What Our Clients Say
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.Ky Erwin3/30/2021
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
This is the best vet clinic I've found in a long time , they take
exceptional care of my dog and show that their main interest
is him when he is there. They are definitely number one in
my book!! All of the above says it alled baxley12/19/2021
I went to Canal Veterinary Hospital for a second opinion for the care of my elderly dog. It was by far the best choice to be made. They have been very careful to balance his treatment always making sure I have all the options explained. I can not recommend them higher!Mary Heilman1/16/2022
Affordable, and friendly staff. Doctors and staff provide your pet with gentle , patient and knowledgeable care. Treating them as if they were their own. If you go somewhere else your wasting your time and throwing your money away in a stressful environment. Why not take you pet to the place most pets prefer , your pet deserves it. Meet Christmas as you can see she agrees this is the best.Nancy Pinoli8/25/2021

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
I have been bringing my dog Holli here since she was a puppy, and she is now 9 years old. They have always listened to my concerns about anything and everything. The whole staff is so helpful and Dr. Heather is amazing. She is always going above and beyond for her patients.Jasmine Aguilera3/13/2021
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 A.10/10/2019
