Dr. Joshua M. Frost – DVM


Dr. Frost’s veterinary experience started far before graduating from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 1996. His father and older brother both chose the path of veterinary medicine before him. From a young age he was surrounded by dogs and cats, working with animals on a daily basis in the family veterinary clinic. This early, constant exposure to animal behavior has grown into his intuitive connection with the way animals communicate. Before moving to Boise in 2000, he practiced both large and small animal medicine in Wisconsin. Mixed animal practice involves many facets of veterinary medicine – from dairy herd health, to Clydesdale horse breeding farms, to humane society work, to dog and cat practice (and much more). These diffuse experiences instilled a broad view of animal welfare as well as the various presentations of the human-animal bond.

After relocating to Boise, Dr. Frost specialized in small animal practice. Since joining Habitat in 2012, he has furthered his efforts to provide fear-free visits for all his patients. His understanding of the special bond between pets and their guardians help him tailor diagnostic and treatment plans to each pet and family. Dr. Frost understands that you and your pet are special and unique, and your pet’s care should also be special and unique.

After fostering, rehabilitating, training, and re-homing many dogs, Dr. Frost has developed skills in introducing and training adopted dogs. In addition to new pet care, other areas of special interest include dermatology, allergies, soft tissue surgery, and internal medicine. On a daily basis, Dr. Frost is humbled by modern medicine miracles as well as the incredible healing power of nature. This respect for both science and nature shows in his “whole-pet” approach to veterinary care.
