  • "I love bringing my pets here the staff is awesome and very sweet."
    Natalie A.
  • "I love this place! They are so compassionate - they work incredibly hard to keep the pets calm."
    Cherie M. C.
  • "I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Connolly and her staff. I have an 8 month old CKCS who was experiencing chronic GI issues and had stopped eating. After several dismissive go arounds with his previous vet, I reached out to Compass for help. When Dr. Connolly did an initial exam, he was wincing from an abdominal check. She immediately jumped into action with a round of blood, urine and fecal work followed by a barium series. All indications led to inflamed stomach and bowels and referred me to a specialist who confirmed it. We are now on a course of treatment and healing.

    She also answered emails with concerns regarding home cooked diets and updates on his condition.

    Her and her staffs caring and compassion have been overwhelming to us. It was a drastic change from his old vet. Plus, my puppy loves her and everyone there.

    Thank you, Dr. Connolly and the Compass Staff for everything you have done so far. I feel you have helped save his life."
    John D - Portland, OR
  • "Highly recommend this place! Dr. Lipanovich did an excellent job neutering my kitty. She took her time examining him and answered all my questions. She had to make an incision to get to one of the testicles since only one was visible. It ended up not being a big deal at all! I felt that all pricing was very fair and reasonable and everything was discussed ahead of time. There were no surprises!"
    Candace S - Lake Oswego
  • "Dr. Connolly and Compass are a good as it gets. I've been a patient with her for years, and followed her from practice to practice. I was thrilled when she opened up her own, and she couldn't be more helpful. Their staff is very courteous and helpful, and Dr. Connolly is VERY responsive and caring. Always goes the extra mile and checks in on our pets. We couldn't be more happy with the care we've received, can't recommend them highly enough!"
    Michael S - Lake Oswego
