Dr. Charles Hendry

Dr. Charles Hendry graduated from the University of Georgia, where he received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. Prior to beginning his veterinary education, Dr. Hendry was a chemical researcher at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute. He started his veterinary career in Jacksonville at a mixed animal practice and then moved to Sebring, Florida, where he raised three children. Growing up in a farming community where he raised dogs, cats, cows, horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, and quail ultimately influenced Dr. Hendry’s move into the veterinary profession.

In 2018, Dr. Hendry relocated to Haines City to join Heart of Florida Animal Hospital. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, playing guitar, reading, and traveling. One of his favorite aspects of living in Haines City is the family-centric values of the wonderful folks in the community.

  • Both of the vets Dr.’s Wilkinson and Hendry are awesome and we love the staff as well. They have always shown us nothing but kindness. Our fur babies love them too.

  • Dr. Hendry AND the young tech were wonderful at examining our 19 year old Martha cat who usually totally freaks out at the vets--or at her best--refuses to cooperate in any way whatsoever. She has NEVER been as calm with any vet as she was when we brought her in with a nasty UTI last Thursday! Dr. Hendry was calm and gentle, taking his time--and so did the young tech when she weighed Martha & got her ready for Dr. Hendry. The office ladies were very good, too--from the phone call for a quick appointment right thru holding the door for us in a terrible downpour of rain as we left. We were impressed with how caring they all were!
