"I am dedicated to helping my clients understand all of their options and working with them to achieve the best possible outcome for their pet and their family.  I love surgery, but I love helping my patients live longer, high-quality lives even more."  - Lily Su 



Lillian Su, BS, DVM, MVSc, CCRP, DACVS (SA)


Dr. Lily Su is thrilled to be serving the Portland pet community at Sunstone Veterinary Specialists! She has focused her veterinary career specifically on the practice of small animal veterinary surgery since 2005.


Dr. Su was able to hone her medical and surgical skills through several internships after graduating from veterinary school at UC Davis in 2004. Despite being a native Californian, she managed to survive Canadian winters well enough to complete her Residency in Small Animal Veterinary Surgery at the University of Saskatchewan in 2011. (Although she did come away with some Canadian-isms, eh?) She is Board Certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in Small Animal surgery.


Prior to joining the team at Sunstone, Lily spent the last 4 years as a Clinical Instructor in Small Animal Surgery at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine where she enjoyed teaching students, interns, and residents while operating on both the Soft Tissue and Orthopedic Surgery services.


While Lily enjoys all types of surgery (veterinary soft tissue surgery, veterinary oncologic surgery, veterinary orthopedic surgery, veterinary neurosurgery), she loves nothing more than to see her patients live happier, better quality lives. To that end, Lily has a strong interest in post-operative recovery and rehabilitation and she has been a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner since 2008. She is excited to bring high quality, personalized, and comprehensive surgical care to Sunstone. 


When not working, Lily looks forward to spending time with her perfect (but slightly naughty) herd of animals, trying out interesting places for food / drink, and exploring the mountains and rivers of the Pacific Northwest.



Dr. Su is available for consults Monday-Thursday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
