About our hospital

  • Kampo medicine treatme
    One of the characteristics of our Harpetsu Clinic's traditional Kampo medicine treatment is the ability to treat diseases caused by immune deficiencies or abnormalities, such as atopic dermatitis, allergies, encephalitis, erythematosus, rheumatism, which are difficult to treat in Western medicine, by adjusting the constitution and immunity.

    The complex workings of the immune system still have many aspects that modern medicine has not yet fully understood. Therefore, diseases caused by immune abnormalities are often labeled as incurable diseases, even in advanced hospitals, and as a result, symptomatic treatments such as steroids and immunosuppressants continue indefinitely. However, the side effects of these treatments can weaken the immune system, leading to the worsening of the disease.

    In our traditional Kampo medicine treatment, we take a step back and aim to restore the body's natural functions by assisting the immune system and the body itself. By doing so, we aim to recover from diseases that Western medicine has deemed incurable without relying on steroids or immunosuppressants, and we do not give up hope.
  • Treatment Process
    The traditional Kampo medicine we use at our clinic is not in the form of supplements but pharmaceuticals. Therefore, when it comes to treatment, we first assess your pet's constitution through in-person consultations and interviews. Based on this assessment, we prescribe traditional Kampo medicine that suits their current constitution.

    We don't simply prescribe and leave it at that. We continuously adjust the dosage and type of traditional Kampo medicine based on the body's response and symptoms, which may become apparent within as little as 1 to 2 weeks. If you are unsure about undergoing traditional Kampo medicine treatment, it's advisable to try it for 2 to 4 weeks and evaluate the effects before deciding whether to continue.

    Additionally, even for the same illness and body weight, the type and amount of traditional Kampo medicine used can vary depending on pet's constitution and immune system status. For inquiries about treatment costs and other details, please contact us directly.

    By Appointment Only
    For sensitive animals, the stress of being in an unfamiliar place, surrounded by many people and animals for an extended period, can be more significant than we might imagine. In our traditional Kampo medicine treatment at the clinic, understanding the condition of animals that may not be reflected in test values and conveying the diagnosis and treatment plan clearly require time during the consultation.

    To ensure that animals can visit the clinic without much stress and for the sake of COVID-19 prevention measures, our clinic operates on a strict appointment-only basis. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
