At Compass Veterinary Clinic, our goal is to inspire and nurture the human-animal bond, one pet and one owner at a time. We provide every patient with high quality, compassionate care in a Fear Free environment; and we give each client with the tools and information necessary to take the best possible care of their cherished friends. To further these goals, we offer animal behavior counseling for pets and their owners.

Behavior issues in dogs and cats are common. In fact, they are the most common reason leading to the surrender of beloved companion animals. For this reason, Dr. Connolly and her team are passionate about providing behavior counseling to help strengthen the human-animal bond.


If you have had to deal with fear, destructiveness, biting, accidents in your home, or other unwanted behaviors, we may be able to help. A behavior consultation will help to identify the reasons for your pet’s undesirable actions. Many owners are unaware that unwanted behaviors are often caused by underlying, treatable medical conditions.

Ultimately, the safety and well-being of all family members - humans and pets - is our goal. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.


At Compass Veterinary Clinic, we know the ins and outs of animal behavior. Our Fear Free certification ensures that each and every member of our team is fully trained to make your pet’s experience in our clinic a good one. If you’re struggling with certain behaviors in your pet, we’re all here to help.
