Dr. Danielle Frost

Dr. Danielle Frost is the founder and owner of Whitelands Animal Hospital. She was raised in South Dakota and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.

After college, she moved to Philadelphia to begin a career in the pharmaceutical industry. Initially, she worked as a research chemist for Johnson Matthey Inc. developing new pharmaceutical drugs and then she worked in compliance as an analytical chemist for the Food and Drug Administration.

Although she enjoyed math and science, her love of animals and her desire to help people were not fully satisfied in a chemistry career. So, she decided to combine these interests by pursuing a career in veterinary medicine and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2002.

Since graduating from PENN, Dr. Frost has practiced medicine at several veterinary hospitals in the greater Philadelphia area including Glenolden Animal Hospital, Ivens Veterinary Hospital and Phoenixville Animal Hospital.

Dr. Frost is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association, the American Association of Feline Practitioners, the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association, and the Delaware Valley Academy of Veterinary Medicine. Her hobbies include going to the beach, watching the Phillies, cooking, reading, and running.

Robin Rescue

Today, one of Whitelands’ team members, Molly, discovered a robin fledgling in the grass. She immediately approached Dr. Frost, who went out to assess the situation. Dr. Frost felt that the bird was too young to be out of the nest, and recommended calling the Schuykill Wildlife Rehab Center for the best next steps. SWRC agreed with Dr. Frost’s assessment, and suggested that we try to find the nest to return the baby bird, or failing that, bring the baby to their Center in Philadelphia.

Molly managed to safely confine the hopping baby in a small cardboard box while another team member discovered a nest in a nearby tree. The mother robin began calling to the baby from a nearby pine tree. With the use of a ladder, Molly returned the baby to the nest, and then everyone rushed inside to see if the mother would return to her baby. After a few moments, the team observed the mother carefully make her way over to the nest. Within a few minutes, mama bird was digging up worms in the dirt and bringing food to her baby.

Many thanks to Molly, Dr. Frost, and the Schuykill Wildlife Rehab Center for their efforts in reuniting the Robin family! (And yes, that really is a shoe!)
