The youngsters don't, other than heartworm every couple of years. Pip gets yearly, he's 8 and on daily medication. And the cats are all > 10 so they get yearly as well.

Zander turned 8 back in February, and I'm considering starting to get yearly bloodwork done. Last couple of years he hasn't had anything done, not even heartworm since it isn't common at all in Montana. His health is a giant unknown though, coming from a BYB. His hips already bothering him, and I feel like his eyes are already getting cloudy (or I could be paranoid). He had bloodwork done before his dental and I was told it looked fine, but I didn't get a chance to talk to the vet herself about it.

Ugh yeah my cat should definitely be on a yearly schedule. He's just a typical jackass cat LOL and no fun to bring in. Actually technically Juno should probably have some checked yearly too since she's on fluoxetine? Hm.

I had bloodwork done on Frag when he was almost 2 to test for a thyroid issue; we just did the full work up and found some results pretty surprising that helped diagnose his behavior with our trainer.

Recon and Sir haven't had any done other than HW tests, but Recon will probably have his done at 14 months with his neuter for a baseline. Sir will probably only have his done if we have an issue. He's healthy as a horse otherwise.

I do yearly bloodwork on all my dogs. I like baselines to go by.
