A Spanish man accused of using veterinary equipment to perform cosmetic surgery is in the doghouse.

Catalonian regional police say they arrested the 63-year-old Barcelona native for allegedly practicing medicine without a license in filthy conditions at his home.

The police say in a statement released Wednesday that the man charged his human patients between $330 to $660 to perform breast or buttocks implants and used a veterinary tool normally used to inject animals.

The police statement says the bogus doctor worked in the company of his three dogs, a cat and a parrot.

Police arrested the man Friday after authorities received a complaint about a shoddy breast implant.
