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.
