You should never send your loved pets to the Pet Wonderland at Ikano wether it is for boarding or for grooming.
Bad Services at Pet Wonderland, Ikano
I've been there almost three times just for my two dogs to hang out and meet other dogs. Just yesterday I brought them there. I was watching these guys grooming a Lhasa Apso & an American Cocker Spaniel. But one of them, a guy was handling the the Lhasa, he looked so fedup and I noticed the dog was behaving well, but this guy was in a bad mood that day. The dog just moved his head a little and he wacked the dog and shook his head. I mean poor thing, these are people's dog excuse me!
And then he was just simply cutting the dog's beard like nobody's buissness. He couldn't care less if dog gets cut by the scissors. ROUGH!!! The wonder I was looking at the other dogs that are in the cage after grooming, they all look so terrified and unhappy even the Golden that was walking around inside the Grooming Room.
Last time, I think it was last early March if I'm not mistaken, I was watching the training session going on. This is still basic class. I mean usually you should encourage and not jerk the dog all over the plc if he doesn't do it rite, coz he's only beginning to learn it, right? This trainer who happens to be a malay, was so rough with a German Sheperd, just becoz she couldn't do the heeling correctly, this trainer jerked it so hard that it screemed and it went down with its ears back and tail between its legs. Too rough for these poor dogs. he didn't even encourage it. He also always looked so bored like fedup with his job, just want to vomit or sumthing like that. In the middle of the class, he starts smoking in the training room. What kind of buissness is this man? And he's a certified trainer...My God!
The other thing is the Boarding Services. A recent report about a beagle was to put to sleep becoz it got affected by the sick dogs in the clinic. The owner just put it there for a few days I think and when he came back to bring it back, he found his dog thin and down. The doctor told him to just put it to sleep. I mean how, irresponsible was the vet and the workers in there. He didn't even give back the money for boarding...Sick people.
I also brought my cat there coz she had this internal bleeding in her bladder. All together it costs about RM800 and nuthing worked, she continued bleeding. All they did was taking an X-Ray of her which costs a bomb, and some drops to wash out her bladder. No pills, nuthing!
So, I never trust that plc but I still like bringing my dogs there to hang out. Also, try to avoid buying pets from pet stores wether they are air-conditioned or is in a top-shape, just don't. They don't vaccinate the pups at all! Most stories I heard is that puppies that are bought from these pet stores, all fall sick or die from kennel cough or other infectious diseases. Should always buy from the breeder itself.
Now, MKA is stricter. You'll notice the puppy section where they sell the puppies in Pet Wonderland, most of them will say-'No Paper'. Meaning, no cert. Dono the reason why, but I think there is no proof to wether the parents are in good condition or they are from puppy mills.
Giving care is like a 'Boomerang'
When you give it out freely, it always comes back to you
