What Our Clients Say
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
Everyone was so wonderful and made me feel very safe leaving my pet there for the day. All of the staff were extremely kind and listened to my concerns with my pet and offered advice before I even took her in. The vet even called me to let me know the treatment plan and future steps. I feel like I asked so many questions but they always gave me detailed answers which I appreciated. They never tried to “sell” me something more expensive and never made me worry about my pets condition. They have very reasonably priced care. I will definitely be bringing Kuma back for more visits. I appreciate the staff caring for my pet as much as I would considering the many many pets they may see every day.Siri Delapp6/22/2023

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.Kathleen M.10/10/2019
I found Canal Veterinary Hospital when I needed urgent care services for my aging cat, Pepper, who was in obvious pain for a reason I couldn't determine. The veterinary office I was familiar with was two weeks out on appointments - Pepper couldn't wait that long. I began calling every veterinary office in my area, with no luck of getting her in quickly - until I reached Canal Veterinary Hospital. Like the previous 4 offices I had contacted, they were booked out for several weeks. Even so, the clerk was kind enough to ask what the issue was. After describing that my Pepper was in obvious pain, she managed to get her in, between other appointments, that same day.
It was at that appointment that I discovered the level of care my pets (3 dogs & 2 cats + ) had been missing out on. Dr.Larsson was quickly able to determine the cause of Peppers pain, and prescribe a (very affordable) treatment plan for her. I was amazed at the comfort level Pepper projected during the visit, (animals are the best judge of people). I had expected her to be terrified, as she was a barn cat that was not used to such experiences, but she seemed so relaxed. That is the day I discovered the BEST Veterinary Hospital I could ever hope for. I have since been back and they were just as amazing! I recommend them to anyone and always will.Wendi Bailey9/25/2021
The staff and doctor were amazing. What a huge difference from where i use to take my dog Cash. At Canal Vet they care for your pets as patients and not like a customer. I will never take my dog back to the old place againJeff Benton5/24/2023
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.Casandra McCants3/14/2020
