Dr. Frauenthal has joined our Emergency and Critical Care Department at VCA Care Specialty and Emergency Animal Hospital after completion of her residency in Emergency and Critical Care at VCA All Care Animal Referral Center in 2015. She completed a rotating internship with the Veterinary Emergency Clinic and Referral Center in Toronto, Canada in 2010. She received her undergraduate degree in Vocal Performance (Music) from UC Davis in 2005 and her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Purdue University in 2009. She is board certified in Critical Care. She is a member of the AVMA, CVMA, SCVMA, ACVECC and the VECCS. Her love for helping animals expands beyond her patients at the hospital. She can often be found volunteering at the local humane societies.
Dr. Frauenthal's other love in life is her music. She is an accomplished opera singer and enjoys performing whenever her schedule permits. In addition to singing, she fills her spare time with paddle boarding, hiking, yoga, international travel, cooking for friends and family, viticulture and oenology. Her life is enhanced with the antics of her two rescue dogs Chaz and Charlette.
Dr. Frauenthal is very grateful to be back home in Southern California near family and friends after her veterinary education took her to Northern California, the Midwest and Canada.
