Dr. Sydney Dockery grew up in Jonesboro, Georgia. Since elementary school, she has wanted to be an animal doctor. Growing up, she was surrounded by pets, like her grandmother’s poodle and a chow. This pushed her to learn how to properly care for animals.

Dr. Dockery attended Augusta University for her undergrad, Georgia State for her Masters, and Tuskegee University for her DVM. She now has multiple pets including a pit bull named Ice Cube, a cat named Snoop Dogg, and a bearded dragon named Kulia.

Dr. Dockery loves being a vet because she can make a difference in people’s lives by caring for their animals. The human interaction is rewarding for her. She chose to work at Craig Road Animal Hospital because she had her externship and fell in love with the environment and staff during her fourth year preceptorship.

In her spare time, Dr. Dockery loves reading dystopian and sci-fi fantasy novels, spending time with her animal babies, and going outside. She enjoys the Arts District area of Las Vegas in particular.
