What Our Clients Say
Due to COVID-19 they actually came to the car and got my three little guys. I have to be honest tho, I prefer being inside the exam room with the doctor so I can converse with her/him while they fo the exam. I can remember things better.
They also accept CareCredit which is a life saver to me being on a set income. Three fur babies means a lot of vaccines etc., even the occasional accident.
They were friendly and professional. .
I would recommend them to anyone needing a good veterinarian.

Have been here on two occasions for my son's dog, no pressure tactics and quick visits. I am not sure how the price compares to most clinics but I have no complaints. There was follow up and great communication. I highly recommend the clinic for you dog. I was recommended myself and was not disappointed especially for not knowing what to expect.J Fab10/24/2020
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.

The first time I spoke with Dr Heather I knew that my pet was being well cared for. She explained, very thoroughly, what she thought the problem was and the options for treatment. Not only that, I knew that she had spent time with my Maya because she knew her personality as well. I also was aware that staff had spent time with Maya because the girl who brought her out to me commented on her personality as well. I will definitely choose Canal Vet in the future.Susan Molloy12/19/2020
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 CooperThresa Cooper4/10/2021
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.Sheryl Mandas4/11/2021
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
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
They are simply the best. They love all of their patients as if they were their own. I wouldn't trust any other vet office with my babies the way I trust Canal.Julianne Armas4/10/2021
I cant say enough wonderful things about Canal Vet, and, every staff member. I recently lost my 15 yr. Old Yorkie, Tito. They did all they could for him over the past 2 years. On his last day, they came in to my home, said a precious little prayer for him, before he took his last breath. I highly recommend Canal Vet. You can feel the love, and empathy they feel towards your pets. Thanks for everything.Chachilove67@gmail.com Martinez9/11/2020
