Dr. Locklear , DVM | Veterinarian (They/Them)

From a young age, Dr. Locklear always knew that they were interested in non-traditional species (especially the scaly kind). Dr. Locklear focused on zoological medicine in veterinary school, caring for endangered red wolves and injured box turtles. A North Carolina native, Dr. Locklear graduated from NC State University in 2020. This was followed by a year-long rotating internship in large animal medicine at the University of Tennessee. Dr. Locklear then transitioned from caring for thousand-pound horses to 30-gram budgies, completing a zoo companion animal internship at Colorado State University. Dr. Locklear’s diverse background has provided them with a unique perspective on medicine for zoo companion animals. Patient care is one of Dr. Locklear’s key interests, with a focus on providing up-to-date, high-quality medicine for zoo companion species. Although they love working with creatures of all shapes and sizes, Dr. Locklear is especially fond of rabbits and reptiles/amphibians.

Dr. Locklear spends their free time managing a menagerie of rescued animals, including two guinea pigs, a leopard gecko, and a spunky pit bull mix. Dr. Locklear is planning to use their time in private practice to rediscover their passion for hiking and rock climbing, and watching plenty of hockey games.
