Dr. Hedda Burnett is originally from New Hampshire and moved to NYC after graduating from Bates College in Maine. After a brief stint as a medical editor and 2 years of post baccalaureate classes later she attended veterinary school at Iowa State University where she graduated Cum Laude. Dr. Burnett then went on to complete a one year rotating internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in New Jersey. She then settled (finally!) in Brooklyn and practiced at Hope Animal Hospital for 5 years under the mentorship of esteemed vet, Dr. Kristine Young. Hope was acquired by VCA animal hospitals in 2015 and Dr. Burnett was promoted to Medical Director. In 2018, Dr. Burnett decided to forge her own path and start a practice with Dr. Erin Dockery in Brooklyn Heights.
Dr. Burnett has a special interest in soft tissue surgery, ultrasound and internal medicine. She believes strongly in a stepwise approach to diagnostics and treatment.
Outside of work Dr. Burnett is an avid runner, enjoys everything outdoors, cooking and traveling with her rad husband. When not at work she is likely chasing her 2 year old son, Wyatt, who is chasing their two ridiculous cats – Chicken and Mini Monster.

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 then joined forces with Atlantic Animal Care for 2 years then ultimately with Dr. Burnett to start their own practice. Dr. Dockery 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!
