What age do you start senior panels? What age do you start doing yearly blood tests? How much do you pay for testing?

I don't unless I see there is a change in the dog. But I do use titering for Rabies (after the first two vaccinations), Parvo and Distemper

Keystone is the only dog that I’ve done annual bloodwork for... I started at 3 following some health issues and steroid treatments. I plan to move to a senior panel, incl UA at 9..... which is the protocol for my dogs at work. Keys bloodwork generally runs me in the $250/75 range.

The vet recommends a senior panel. My last vet charged $400 but I’m not sure what else it included for a previous dog.

It was $200 for the panel plus charges for supplies. Much less than I expected and in line what the rest of you said,
