Dr. Kenneth DeRemer, DVM Veterinarian & Owner
I was born and raised in New Jersey, and moved to the west coast (California) for my graduate studies. I graduated from veterinary school in 1983 from the University of California at Davis. I moved to the Portland area shortly after graduation. I started my first clinic, Paws and Claws Pet Medical Center, as a house-call practice while its current facility was being finished. The doors to Paws and Claws opened in 1994. In 2008 I purchased Peninsula Dog and Cat Clinic in North Portland. I now split my time between both practices, working Mondays at Paws & Claws, and working the rest of the week here at Peninsula Dog & Cat Clinic. My wife and I have 3 children: KC, Ben, and Wyatt.Currently I have 1 dog, 2 cats, and a parrot. In my free time (which seems rare) I enjoy fishing and crafting home-brewed beer.
Dr. Ross Weinstein, BVSc Veterinarian
I grew up overseas in Manchester, England and graduated from the University of Liverpool Veterinary School in 1998. I began my career working as a veterinarian in London until I moved to the USA in 2000. Upon my arrival I began practicing as a small animal veterinarian in Boston before completing an internship in wildlife medicine at Tufts Veterinary School. I moved to Oregon in 2004 in search of the great lifestyle that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. I worked at various clinics around the Portland area before joining the team at Peninsula Dog & Cat Clinic in 2018. My professional interests include complex internal medicine cases,ophthalmology, dentistry as well as avian and exotic animal medicine. I also greatly value the opportunity to build long lasting relationships with clients and their pets. When I am not working or spending time with my two children and black lab, I enjoy fly fishing, mushroom hunting, hiking, gardening and home-brewing.

I have loved reptiles and amphibians all of my life. As a child, growing up in Portland Oregon, I would spend a lot of time looking for snakes, frogs, salamanders, lizards and turtles. My love for animals grew over my years, leading me to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. I love working with all types of animals, and have been doing it professionally for over 20 years. In my not so free time, I enjoy the outdoors, fishing and volunteering.

In 2018 I moved to Portland and joined the Peninsula Dog & Cat Clinic team that October. I love having the opportunity to learn something new every day at work and interact with all different kinds of animals. At home, I have an Australian Cattle Dog, Ivy, and a cat named Fernie Sanders. In my free time, I can be found hiking with my dog, trying out new restaurants/breweries or exploring Oregon.
Maddie, Veterinary Assistant
I grew up in Portland. Over the years I have owned and cared for dogs, cats, birds, hamsters and turtles! I started dog sitting and dog walking years ago, which led me to pursue working in the veterinary field. I joined the team at Peninsula Dog & Cat Clinic as a Kennel Attendant in April of 2018. I really enjoy working with a team who devote their time to helping animals and who care about animals as much as I do. This is the first clinic that I have worked at, and I am lucky to have such great teachers to help me advance my skills. As soon as I started I knew this was the right career path for me. At home I have a Scottish fold, a Persian, a French Bulldog and a Golden Doodle. My dream job is to become a veterinarian, and I am excited about my journey to get there. In my free time I enjoy hiking and exploring, hanging with my animals and spending time with family and friends.
