No matter how much I make sure Basti’s or Prince Sebastian’s hair do not get all *that* matted, his entire hairline just manages to find a way to tangle itself. It gets so frustrating especially when you see him scratch and his nails get tangled on matted hair near his skin. It also looks painful and Basti had to endure that for months just because I refuse to make him look like a disassembled rat (note: ugly).
Finally I had to concede because the last time Basti scratched his ears with his hind legs, one of his nails got hooked somehow in all that mat and got stuck! Imagine Basti rolling on the floor trying to — yes, it was a funny and scary sight at the same time. It was horrible and I refuse to even imagine what would happen if we somehow left him alone for hours.
Hence, a visit to his hairstylist was in order. We stopped by Animal Kingdom in Lahug only to be told that their clipper is broken and with the amount of tangle Basti has in his body, it will take more than your regular pair of scissors to do the job.
This is how their clinic looks (above) like. Yes, photos are not allowed but I managed to take them before they warned me. Sorry. You can really tell how much Cebu loves Animal Kingdom judging on the love letters they get from their clients (below). Their waiting room is small though but I appreciate the small tv (photo next to photo below) for entertaining.
So we transferred to Cebu Vet Doctor’s in Banilad Town Center and went back to get Basti after an hour. He looked so forlorn and adorable inside their crates the time when we went to go get him. I am just happy Prince Sebastian no longer has hair problems. Perhaps in the future he would go see a dentist preferably a Mclean, VA Dentist in Tysons corner. You should see how he is with those Abuhan pochero bones.
These were their rates. I didn’t ask how much they were charging for large dogs anymore.
Grooming and Dematting (6kls and above) = P500
Grooming & Dematting (5kls and below) = P400
Prince Sebastian after 4 hours.
The boyfriend and I shopped for combs and everything else Basti needs afterwards. I say it is hightime combing should be vigilant.
