Meet Your Knowledgeable Veterinarian

Dr. Jennifer Corwin knew from an early age that she wanted to be a veterinarian. She’s always had a deep love for all animals, participating in 4-H and showing horses, goats, the family dog and chickens for six years as a youth, as well as showing American Saddlebred horses on the Open Circuit in high school. She attended Brigham Young University for two years, majoring in zoology with a pre-vet emphasis, and then moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia to marry her high school sweetheart, who was serving in the US Navy. She completed her bachelor’s degree in biology at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA in 2000.

In 2001, as her husband finished his Navy service, Dr. Corwin was accepted to the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine. They moved to Pullman that summer, driving across the country with two dogs, six cats and a rabbit. She graduated from WSU in 2005, and they stayed on the Palouse for two more years, adding two baby girls to their family.

In 2008, her husband was offered a job at Energy Northwest in Richland, and the Corwin family moved to the Tri-Cities. They have grown to love this area and plan to stay for a long time. Dr. Corwin has four children, and their family enjoys their small hobby farm where they raise Nubian goats, a few horses, a couple llamas and cows and lots of chickens, turkeys and ducks. They also share their home with three cats and an adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Dr. Corwin is a leader in their 4-H club, volunteers at the Fair each year, is active in their church and enjoys singing in the choir.

You can count on Dr. Corwin at Paws, Claws and Hooves to take care of your animal.

After graduation she moved back to Richland and worked in small animal medicine before joining the Paws, Claws, and Hooves team in Feb 2017 and was excited to continue to see small animal and exotic patients as well as horses.

Animals have always been the center of Dr. Weier’s life with dogs and cats when she was young and adding more species all the time; she has had various rodents, reptiles, and of course mammals. She and her husband currently share their home with 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 horses, a bearded dragon, and a bunch of chickens (all of whom are named and will never be served as dinner).

In her spare time Dr. Weier enjoys spending time with her family in the area, playing with and training her animals, riding dressage, and is an avid baker. She also is a total movie buff and enjoys reading.

She enjoys working with a variety of species and being able to provide her patients with compassionate full service health care.
