Our Mission

Our mission is to provide emergency veterinary and specialty services in a caring environment. Pets and their “parents” are our highest priority, and are both treated with dignity, kindness, and respect by professionals who are passionate about their work.

Who We Are

Animal Specialty and Emergency Center of Brevard (ASEC) has been trusted by our community for over twenty years. ASEC (formerly Animal Emergency and Critical Care) was owned and operated by Dr. Kevin Brackett and his wife, Rita until Dr. Brackett’s retirement in 2017. Today, we proudly serve as Brevard’s leading full-service emergency and specialty veterinary hospital with an incredible team of outstanding individuals in the veterinary medical field.

With the goal of providing the highest quality of care, utilizing the best-trained veterinary personnel available, including a full time Surgeon, Neurologist, and Board Certified Cardiologist, we are well known and respected in our community and it is our pleasure to serve clients from all over central Florida.

Employee Testimonials

At Animal Specialty & Emergency Center of Brevard, we are dedicated to our employees' happiness, success, and growth.

I started at ASEC almost a decade ago as a client service receptionist and it was the best decision I could have made. I have learned so much about the veterinary field, including patient care and client care. Our team works hard to assure our clients have a good experience from the first phone call, to bringing their fur baby home. We make sure our clients know that their pet comes first, always. The dedication, love and strength from our team here at ASEC is unbelievable and I could not have asked to work with more amazing people.

I have always wanted to work somewhere where I felt important. At Animal Specialty and Emergency Center, I’ve been given that opportunity, and the chance to develop professionally and personally. We work as a team to accomplish the common goal and not individual glory. I am grateful for being able to take part in the good this hospital does for our community.
