Charlie AKA King Charles

Charlie came to Southshore Animal Hospital when he was brought to Dr. Chris by his previous owner. He was not able to urinate, and after trying for 2 weeks to unblock him, Dr. Chris decided to do a surgery to help him urinate. The owner was not able to afford the surgery and Dr. Chris fell in love with Charlie and decided to have the owner sign over ownership to us. Dr. Chris did the surgery Pro Bono and officially performed a perineal urethrostomy on him. Charlie was so lovable we decided to keep him in our clinic where he is the King. You can often find him looking for someone to rub his ears and love on him.
