A Japanese dog spa has taken pet pampering to a whole new level by offering “exorcisms” for their furry guests.

The D+Kirishima spa not only offers the latest in formal kaiseki doggy-owner dinners and spa baths together (yes, together in the same bath), but also a package called the “Pet Dog Exorcism Plan.”

A senior Shinto priest will come to the spa to conduct a ceremonial blessing to rid your pup of bad spirits and pray for its future health.

The ceremony is especially suggested for dogs in their “unlucky health years.”

“Seven-year-old, 10-year-old, and 13-year-old dogs need to be careful of their health, as it’s easier in those years for them to gets diseases of aging,” according to the spa’s pitch for the package.

“The exorcism for your dog is celebrated along with its owner at the Shingariyu shrine within the hotel.”

It only takes 30 minutes, according to the site. And it costs $430 — room and pet-owner dinner included.

The Japanese must have something similar for cats. Some need help.
