Dr. Ross

“We will always stay in the forefront of veterinary care at Fremont Veterinary Clinic: insisting on the best from our staff and doctors. Moreover, we will always do our best to deliver the best medical care and service to you our clients and your beloved pets. This is our passion and commitment.”

Dr. Ross was born and raised in West Texas. When he was 7 his family acquired land in central Texas and, although he’d grown up with dogs, gerbils, hamsters, and turtles, this was his first exposure to large animals. Even though they continued to live in West Texas, the family spent many weekends and vacations at the “farm.” Here he learned about calving, vaccinating cattle, general ranching and large animal husbandry.

Pursuing his love of mathematics and engineering as an undergraduate at Texas A&M University Dr. Ross obtained his degree, magna cum laude, in biomedical engineering in 1985. All the while, however, his ultimate goal was to go to veterinary school. He graduated cum laude with his DVM from Texas A&M in 1990 and moved to Oregon. After 2 years in mixed animal practice Dr. Ross joined the Fremont team in 1992. In 1997 he took the reigns from his predecessor, Dr. Thomas Carey.

Dr. Ross is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Animal Hospital Association, the Oregon Veterinary Medical Association and the Portland Veterinary Association. He has served as both a board member and President of the Portland Veterinary Medical Association.

In 2006 he graduated with a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Oregon. He loves working in the yard, watching movies and/or traveling with his wife; in fact he just loves being with her!!  Dr. Ross enjoys music of all sorts including classical, rock, and jazz; he also bikes and spends as much time as possible with his sons playing, basketball, snowboarding/skiing and any other sport he can keep up with although he’s more of a spectator at their lacrosse or track events these days.
