About 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. Most of her patients are cats and dogs, but she has a strong interest and skill in working with birds and other exotic pets.

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 with her dog, Jet.
