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.

Camron, Veterinary Assistant
I moved to Portland from Missouri in 2019. I have such a passion for animals and wanted to make them part of my every day job. I started working at Peninsula Dog & Cat Clinic as a Client Service Representative. I loved seeing all of the patients come in, and really enjoyed helping out with treatments on our clinic cat Boogey. I realized my desire to work more hands on with animals and transitioned to working as a veterinary assistant in 2020. I love helping all of our patients everyday! In my free time I enjoy riding my bike and spending time with my family and pets.

Jessica, Kennel Attendant
I’ve always been very interested in animal wellbeing, and have had pets for most of my life. I graduated from Lewis & Clark College with a biology degree in 2020. I spent a semester abroad in Tanzania studying the ecology of tropical organisms. I also cared for the college’s zebrafish laboratory, and took any chance I could get to learn and work with animals. My ultimate goal is to study veterinary medicine and become a veterinarian. I began studying veterinary assisting and wanted to get some more hands on learning, so I joined the team at Peninsula Dog & Cat Clinic in 2020. I love getting to work with all of the different animals that come into the clinic. This experience has been great and I continue to learn everyday. I plan to apply to Oregon State’s veterinary program in the new future.
