SunShine Animal Hospital Tour


Dr. Kevin J Fontenot, DVM

Dr. Kevin graduated from Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1991 at the age of 23, which at the time, made him the youngest veterinarian in the United States.  He practiced for many years in Florida before settling down and making Melbourne his home in 1999.  

His areas of expertise includes Small Animal Medicine, Ophthalmology, Dentistry, Soft Tissue and Orthopedic Surgery and Cancer Treatment.

He is a proud member of the American Veterinary Medical Association,  American Animal Hospital Association.  In 2014 and again in 2017 he was voted "BEST VET IN MELBOURNE" by the Melbourne Award Program.

He thinks the best part of being a veterinarian is seeing the endless unconditional love that pets bring to our lives.

He has 3 dogs, 2 cats and 1 son... 6 children in all.  When he's not working or taking care of his family, he enjoys gardening, reading and being challenged to fix things.


Heather - Certified Veterinary Assistant / Supervisor

She has been a resident of Rockledge since 1999, is a member of the Florida Veterinary Technician Association and in 2015 became a Certified Veterinary Assistant by the Florida Veterinary Medical Association

She says the best part of working at an animal hospital is looking into the pet's eyes and being able to see their emotions reflecting back.  "The animals are the sole reason why I do what I do.  I want to be their advocate and their voice.  I take pride in providing the client with professional solutions and reassuring them that their pets will get the best possible care."

Heather has 2 cats at home, Arya and Khalessi and when she's not working or caring for her furry family, she enjoys reading, writing, drawing, bowling and going on adventures with her family.
