Yes, Alucard is Dracula spelled backward and his Dad named him that after seeing his big vampire fangs!  Alucard was having difficulty urinating and crying out and he was diagnosed with having urinary stones in his bladder and urethra (tube to the outside).  His Dad had signed up for pet insurance, but unfortunately, it would not cover this problem because it had already been diagnosed and was now a preexisting condition.  SAGE Compassion for Animals was able to provide a grant and surgery was performed by the team at VCA Winchester Animal Hospital.  Alucard is now home in his bat-cave!  Check out all of his pictures as he definitely likes hanging around!
