About Erin Dockery
Growing up in Brooklyn Heights, Dr. Erin Dockery loved reading the stories of
country vet, James Herriott. After attending Packer and graduating from Trinity
High School, Erin went to Harvard University for a degree in English and American
Literature. Whilst there, Dr. Dockery decided to pursue her life long dream of
becoming a veterinarian and travelled to the UK to attend University of Liverpool
Veterinary School, where she graduated with distinction and became a member of
the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. While in the north of England, like in the
stories of James Herriott, she experienced the life of a country vet, but ultimately
decided to move back to her “hometown” of Brooklyn Heights to work with small
animals, mentored by the legendary Dr. Maddox.
Brooklyn Heights is known for its small town feel in the heart of the big city and Dr.
Dockery has found her niche here. As a resident of the community, Erin loves
walking down Montague Street and seeing many familiar faces, both animal and
human! Her children attend the local schools and her husband is a neighborhood
pediatric dentist so Dr. Dockery is here to stay!
With the closing of Cobble Hill Animal Clinic in 2015, Dr. Erin Dockery knew she
wanted to stay in the neighborhood to serve her wonderful patients and clients. She
has joined forces with Atlantic Animal Care and looks forward to welcoming many
old and new faces in her new veterinary home.
In her spare time, Dr. Dockery enjoys playing squash, tennis and, of course, reading
James Herriot’s stories to both her children and the family cat, Fergus!
