Wellness Exams and the Family Veterinarian
We know how important it is to form a long-term relationship with a family veterinarian. It helps us understand your pet’s history and identify potential health concerns before they become serious. At the early detection stage, treatments are often easier and less expensive.
At each semi-annual physical exam, your pet will receive far more than just health protecting vaccinations and medications. We will take a full history of your pet’s activity and habits while performing a complete and comprehensive physical exam looking for any abnormalities or changes or potential issues. This is a critical component to your pet living a long and happy life.
Periodontal disease, caused by the build-up of bacteria and plaque on your pet’s teeth and gums, often results in painful outcomes: bleeding and severe inflammation of the gums, gum recession, alveolar bone loss and tooth mobility. As the disease progresses, the bacteria can travel through the blood and damage the heart, liver and kidneys. Regular dental cleanings can prevent the spread of periodontal disease and keep your pet healthy.
Preventive Health Care for Seniors
Preventive health care for senior pets is extremely important. We provide blood work for early detection of geriatric health problems, perform digital radiographs to check for internal concerns, and recommend semi-annual visits to help make our preventive measures as valuable as possible for your pet. We also offer pain management options for seniors who suffer from joint discomfort and arthritis.
Our in-house laboratory allows most screening tests to be completed within a very short period of time. Routine fecal screenings, urinalysis, heartworm tests, complete blood counts, pre-surgical screenings and blood chemistry profiles are among the many tests where results are available very quickly and can help us keep your pet healthy.
Annual Fecal Exams
The doctors at Bean Blossom are dedicated to using annual pet fecal exams for diagnosis because we know that both indoor and outdoor pets can be susceptible to parasites. Fecal exams can check for parasites that could be harmful to your pet, as well as zoonotic risks, which could potentially put your family in danger! We recommend regular fecal testing, just to keep everyone in your family safe.
